It’s a new week #SixforSunday with the wonderful Steph at A Little But a Lot. This week’s Small but Mighty prompt is books under 200 pages. I thought this was going to be impossible, but I found six I adore. Here they are:
1. Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan. This one is exactly 200 pages and it’s absolutely wonderful. If you haven’t read it yet, you definitely should.
2. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. I can’t quite believe this gorgeous book is only 181 pages. This small book packs a punch.
3. The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy. This is a short but beautiful book. It has 128 pages, and those 128 pages really helped us in lockdown one.
4. Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor. This brilliant short story from the world of Daughter of Smoke and Bone comes in varying sizes but there’s an edition at 100 pages so I’m taking it.
5. The Pale Dreamer by Samantha Shannon. Paige Mahoney’s story, part of The Bone Season world packs a lot into those 111 pages.
6. The Bookshop Girl by Sylvia Bishop. Apparently this is 135 pages. It’s also a really underrated book about a girl living in a bookshop. I loved it.
What books under 200 pages would make your list?
