Ughhh … I have been slacking so hard with this blog. I apologize profusely, and since nothing is ever my fault (hah, just kidding, kind of), I’m blaming the cold weather shift and my upcoming vacation which has sucked my productivity levels completely dry. Seriously, if there is a vacation anywhere on the horizon for me, the only thing I care about is (1) what I’m going to pack and (2) what I’m going to read while I’m away. But anyways… I’m trying to kill my “being an unproductive piece of shit” mentality, so here’s a list! 🙂
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature has a different (usually) book related topic each week, and the goal is to compose a list of ten things that correspond to the topic!
This week’s theme is: Top Ten Books To Read If Your Book Club Likes Short Books
I guess the first thing I should do is define short. I’m going with anything that is less than 300 pages. This actually makes me giggle because I can remember when I was younger and 300 pages sounded really freaking awful and impossible, and now I can read that in a day.
If you like short and thought provoking, try:
- Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson (198 pages)
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman (201 pages)
- Looking for Alaska by John Green (221 pages)
- If I Lie by Corrine Jackson (276 pages)
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (288 pages)
If you like short and a little thrilly, try:
If you like short, lighthearted, and fun, try:
- A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall (272 pages)
- On the Fence by Kasie West (296 pages)
- Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty (298 pages)
What are some of your favorite short (or shortish) books?
