Thomas Watson all the way! I would suggest The Beatitudes.
It is hard to escape 'density' with the Puritans. Maybe that is because publishing was more difficult at that time. They didn't have the luxury of extra words.
As for the subject matter you are looking for, I would recommend "Providence Handled Practically" by Obadiah Sedgwick available here: Amazon.com: Providence Handled Practically (9781601780256): Obadiah Sedgwick: Books
It has an introduction by Joel Beeke and our very own Rev Matthew Winzer!
I recommend reading it as a devotional.
Another vote for Thomas Watson, Christopher Love, and John Bunyan.
I also agree that Joel Beeke's "Meet the Puritans" is a solid resource.
here are two links that may be helpful, They spell out where to start and give a monthly reading schedule.
