A non-fantasy, woman-centred, entertaining book for my informal book club that usually reads fantasy?

2022.01.28 00:25 IReadBooksSometimes A non-fantasy, woman-centred, entertaining book for my informal book club that usually reads fantasy?

My friend and I (both female in our 20s) read books together and talk about them every week. We’ve mostly read fantasy in the past, but we’re looking to branch out a bit since she’s currently also reading LOTR and doesn’t want a fantasy overload hah.
Here are our previous reads:
A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers
Carmilla by Sheridan le Fanu
The Prestige by Christopher Priest
I think we pretty much liked all of these, though I’ll admit I wasn’t really a fan of how The Prestige treated its female characters, and a lot of these were a teeny bit slow for me.
I’d love some recommendations for books that:

We do usually like fantasy, so maybe some historical fiction or mystery could be good? Perhaps a thriller? Maybe a classic that leans more on the “fun” side? Maybe something written by an international author?
We do read in 50 page chunks so something fast paced could be good, but not a requirement. We do also enjoy a healthy dose of drama.
Perhaps nothing too depressing please because the world is bleak enough as is and we’ll be stuck reading this book for however long the book is divided by 50 pages per week.
Thank you in advance!

2022.01.28 00:25 Revolutionary_Owl670 As someone who's not from the USA, you all politicize crypto way too much.

We get it. Your government can potentially fuck this up for everyone. Like real bad.
But is this the place where you need to shill your favourite political party and share the same overused "this party bad, this party good" rhetorics? No. There are so many of us that don't give an absolute donkey's ass about why you think one party is better than the other. They are both awful and you're kidding yourself if you think either of them has you or your favourite crypto's best interest in mind.
By all means, it is important that many of these topics within the political sphere are discussed and opposed when they threaten the future of our financial independence, freedom of information, etc.
But really, it gets old fast when you all inject your political views into things. If you're going to constantly look for reasons to hate on a political party, but not actually address the underlying REASONS both parties are equally corrupt when discussing crypto, you're not helping the issue, you're part of it.

My wife and I saw a large possum dead on the 400 block of Pine in Oregon Hill tonight, presumably hit by a vehicle. What is the appropriate number to call to have the city or other service remove the possum?

2022.01.28 00:25 Snyderq Problem with screen resolution with stalker mods

I've tried to play CoC with some mods just to try it out but I ran into a problem, whenever I change the screen resolution to 1366x768 The screen goes dark and a message appears saying "Not recommended mode recommended mode 1366x768 hz60" I guess you can see the problem, I've tried another resolutions and the same problem happens, I've tried some solutions I found but none of them worked. I believe it has to do something with the Hz but I haven't tried anything yet, As well a similar problem happens with Dead Air and Clear Sky Arsenal Overhaul, in DA's case whenever I activate full screen the same message appears, and for CS when I launch it the same message appears.
(sorry if you undestand something english is not my first language and I don't have a lot of knowlodge about this kind of stuff)

2022.01.28 00:25 RadioactiveDeuterium Letter Mail Delays

I commonly get letter mail from Toronto (1-2 times a month) and I live no more than 1.5 hours away. Normally I get these within 3-5 days except for the most recent one that was shipped last Tuesday (Jan 18th) and has yet to show up. The contents are somewhat valuable so I am getting a bit worried. Does anyone know if there are significant letter mail delays around Toronto right now?
