Short Books to Read
One of my favorite books on the list has to be The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. It is a thought-provoking novel that tackles depression and feelings of loneliness in a brilliant way. Haig is an author that everyone should check out at least once.
If you haven’t read the classic novella The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, then you should get to it now. The message of the novel makes it a special read and even today, people are still deciphering the meaning of this novella.
Lastly, another classic on the list that you need to read is The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros. It is a wonderful novel that is short but will stay with you long after you finish the book. Not many authors can write an impactful novel that is also short.
That wraps up this list of the ten best books to read in one sitting. How many of these books have you read or plan to read. What other short novels should we have included? Let us know in the comments below!
