Today I wanted to list some books that are very fast reads, mostly under 300 pages, so if you ever just want to get a book in or plan on participating in a read-a-thon, these books would be perfect choices!
Without further ado…
Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick is about 270 pages long, and I was able to read it in about an hour. It’s honestly an amazing story jam-packed into a small amount of pages, so I’d highly recommend it!
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith is around 240-250 pages long, and it was adorable! If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you do ASAP!
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky has been one of my favourites ever since I read it in an evening in September. It’s about 200 pages, so anyone looking for a short, not to mention fabulous read should be the friend of Charlie, and pick up Perks!
I didn’t love The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood, which totally boggles me because I love math and science. Any who, it’s around 300 pages, so if you don’t mind a quirky writing style and heavy mentions of math and science, then I’m sure you’ll adore this one!
This is a graphic novel, but I wanted to include it, because why not? El Deafo by Cece Bell was quite an amazing story, and better yet, it’s basically a memoir from the author’s own life. It’s around 230-240 pages, so I would highly recommend that you pick this one up, whether you’re a fan of graphic novels or not.
The Boyfriend List and all the other books in the Ruby Oliver series by E. Lockhart are around 200 pages in length. The two I’ve read are very cute, and I found Ruby quite easy to relate to.
Hey, I haven’t mentioned this one in a while! Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt is one of the cutest, fluffiest contemporaries out there, and it’s just under 300 pages, so it’s perfect!😊
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton is just under 200 pages, but despite the fact that it’s tiny, an amazing story is embedded into it. I’d recommend that all teens pick it up!
I personally really liked Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, in spite of all the controversy in the blogging community. It’s just approaching 300 pages, so if you haven’t read this one yet, what are you doing?!
Last but not least, one of my ALL-TIME FAVOURITES, Blindsided by Priscilla Cummings! It weighs in at around 240 pages, so I highly suggest that after you finish reading this post, you run to your local bookstore or library, take this book, and whip it up in a day!
So tell me, have you read any of these books, or are you planning to? Opinions? Any short books under 300 pages you’d recommend? How do you feel about shorter books? Tell me in the comments below.
