This week’s prompt is “top ten recommendations for __________”. We’re heading into the last stretch of summer and trying to maximize those last precious days lounging on the beach or in a hammock, soaking up the sun. I know I’m not the only one who loves a good beach read, but since we don’t have much time left to finish those books before school starts up again, I thought I’d round up ten of my favorite short books that can be easily read in one sitting. (This is similar to a prompt I followed earlier this year, but all of these titles are under 300 pages.)
There’s a little something for everyone in this list, from mystery to rom-com to nonfiction. In order by length, here are some of my favorite short books to enjoy this month, whether you’re relaxing poolside, taking a train to a weekend vacay destination, or parked in front of a fan trying to beat the heat!
