I started out with an easy quick read - Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx. I never liked the film much (way too loooong), and while the book was a bit... weird, it was far better. At only 58 pages it manages to convey a whole lot of (suppressed) emotions and portray forbidden lust/love in a land and time that would kill you for such things. The book could easily have been longer, the whole story, particular the start, is very rushed, but overall it's a decent book and a quick read.
