Winter Reading Guide Minimalist Reading

In the guide, we have dedicated one category to the “minimalist reader.”  Our Minimalist Reads list has six titles that we highly recommend if you’re only planning to pick up a few reads this winter!  

It’s super hard narrowing an initial list of hundreds of books down to a third of the size and then narrowing them down to our top six.  However, you can expect these reads to be across genres, beautifully written, compelling, thought-provoking, enjoyable, and great for discussions.

The Yellow Wife by Sadeqa Johnson

Born on a plantation in Virginia, Pheby Delores Brown has lived a privileged life. Freedom has been promised to her, but instead of the idyllic life she imagined, she finds herself at the infamous “Devil’s Half-Acre,” a jail where the enslaved are broken, tortured and sold.  A harrowing story that follows an enslaved woman forced to barter love and freedom while living in the most infamous slave jail in Virginia.

The Center of Everything by Jamie Harrison

Since a recent head injury, Polly has struggled with memory problems, remembering too much as well as too little. As she prepares for a large family reunion, disjointed images of the past haunt her. A beloved friend goes missing which dredges up difficult memories for a family well acquainted with tragedy.
The story of a middle-aged everyman who realizes that he doesn’t have any close friends, inspiring him to set out on a humorous and ultimately moving quest to revive old tribes and build new ones, all with the goal of having someone to hang out with on Wednesday nights.
When the eight-year old daughter of an Oxford College Master vanishes in the middle of the night, police turn to the Scottish nanny, Dee, for answers.  Roaming through Oxford’s secret passages and hidden graveyards, Magpie Lane explores the true meaning of family and what it is to be denied one.
A park in the Scottish Highlands is the site of tension and unease for a group of vacationing strangers.  Suspenseful and intimate, we see family life in various stages framed by nature, which becomes a character in itself.  An exploration of our capacity for kinship and cruelty, and a gorgeous evocation of the natural world that bears eternal witness.
When the struggling radio station needs a new concept, Shay proposes The Ex Talk, a show where two exes will deliver relationship advice live, on air.  Their boss decides Shay and Dominic are the perfect co- hosts, given how much they already despise each other.  As the show gets bigger, so does their deception.  When Shay and Dominic start to fall for each other, getting caught could mean the end of more than just their careers.
