20 Quick Reads / 20 Novellas #Project2020

There's a sense of accomplishment when you can finish a book in a day or in one sitting. I just finished Elevation by Stephen King, less than 150 pages, and it was wonderful to read an entire book in a couple hours while enjoying some comfort food and hot chocolate.

If you are looking for shorter books that don't take up all your time then this list is for you! A novella is longer than a short story, but not as long as a novel. They are a nice way of getting some reading done. I tend to read them in between some of my books that are more of a commitment. For this list, I chose books that I completed in one sitting and one that is still on my TBR. Some of them are so small that you may have to squint to see the titles on the spines. This list includes fiction, non-fiction, memoir, YA, philosophy, spirituality, and poetry,

For some quick reads, here are 20 suggestions.
