Some of the best things in life come in small packages, like diamond rings — and short novels. One of my favorite things about short novels is that most have an incredibly simple plot, but fit an incredibly amount of emotion and even action into such a small package. These 11 “quick reads” are all under 200 pages (in at least one of their formats). Short novels can be fantastic to tote along with you this summer while lying on the beach for an afternoon or during the kids’ soccer practice.
Even at 11 books, this list seems incomplete. What quick read that’s under 200 pages would you add to this list? — Kristen B.
