How books do you have left in your Goodreads 2021 Reading Challenge? Three? Four? I’ve got six and I’m very aware of the time flying by until the new year. So if you’re like me and need some short books to read, have a look at this list! Have you read any of them? Do you have any other short book recommendations? Let me know in the comments!
Pet by Awaeke Emezi is a super short YA novel I actually picked up last year to try and finish my Goodreads challenge. And I’m so glad I did! It’s thought provoking and incredibly moving – I read it in one sitting. Find my review here!
If you haven’t had to suffer through analysing it at school, An Inspector Calls by J B Priestley is actually a really engaging play. It’s super short, and happens in real time so you’ll be at the big plot twist in no time.
The ratio of pages to the number of times The Outsiders by S E Hinton made me cry is ridiculous. A brilliant read, and one of my favourite classics!
This should be a modern classic, but no-one’s ever heard of Eden by Joanna Nadin. Granted, I found it at a charity shop, but it’s a min-warping, all-consuming thriller with only 240 pages. Let me know what you think!
Modern classics and poetry collections always super short. The Weight Of Water by Sarah Crossan is a fast paced, YA poetry book – and I absolutely loved it. A must-read if you’re trying to fill up your Goodreads Challenge!
