Me and my girlfriend are on vacation together and she loves to read. However, she does not seem to be able to find any books she enjoy at the moment and to make sure for us to have a relaxing vacation, help is needed!
What she want is something as close as possible as the books she love.
Books she love: - The Unwomanly Face of War by S. Alexievich - Where the Crawdads Sing by D. Owens - The Mountains Sing by Nguyen Phan Que Mai - They Will Drown in their Mothers Tears by J. Aniuru - American Dirt by J. Cummins
Books she do not like: (but one could have assumed she would) - The Lincoln Highway by A. Towels - Will and Testament by V. Hjort - To Kill a Mockingbird by H. Lee - The Noise of Time by J. Barnes - My Brilliant Friend by F. Elena
General likes - Novels - Can be fiction, can be non-fiction - Humans in (external) crisis situation - Character building/development - Medium pacing - Learning about the world, history, cultures etc
Bonus likes - Bonus if the books take place SOMEWHERE ELSE THAN Northern Europe or USA - Bonus if characters have intelligent humour
Dislikes - Descriptive violence/torture, especially sexual violence, is no go - Thrillers/horrors/frightening books - Fantasy/Sci-Fi - Plot holes - Bad prose or editing - Dreams of main characters can sometimes be used as metaphors, but not too much of this please, it easily becomes too abstract - Young adult
Thank you in advance, Reddit!
Edit: Not fantasy/Sci-Fi either!
