What kinds of novel do I suggest you read? Good ones. This is a novel recommendation about reading novels.
Usually when we read a book the dialogue all sounds very similar. Boring. Instead, read characters with absurd voices. Alice taking a deep breath before every sentence and speaking twice as fast as normal, and Martin talking from the back of the throat but still trying to flourish his words, a detective speaking every line as though it were a question, these make the shorter breaks between work both juvenile and enjoyable.
This can also be applied to non-fiction, but it is a little distracting.
