Top Ten Tuesday: Shortest YA Books I've Read


.
Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is Read In One Sitting Theme like ten of the shortest books I've read, top ten books I read in one sitting, ten books to read when you are short on time, top ten books that will make you read the whole day away, etc.  I've decided to share the shortest YA books I've read not counting short stories, audiobooks, or graphic novels.  Here we go, in order of length:


Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flat Tires Along the Way) by Sue Macy, 96 pages - This is an absolutely fascinating nonfiction piece discusses women's rights and freedoms by way of the history of the bicycle.


Aquamarine by Alice Hoffman, 112 pages - I loved this in middle school so much!


Amelia Lost: The Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart by Candace Fleming, 118 pages - I've always been fascinated by Amelia Earhart and this work of nonfiction's no exception.


Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt, 139 pages - You can never go wrong with this classic!


Haunting Joy by Lena Goldfinch, 156 pages - Eerie ghost story with a bit of romance for fans of the tv series, Ghost Whisperer.


Coraline by Neil Gaiman, 162 - Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors and this is one of my favorites of his works.


Sammy Keyes and the Hotel Thief by Wendelin Van Draanen, 163 pages - The Sammy Keyes YA mystery series will always be a favorite of mine.  If you've never tried them before you should look into it.


Redemption by Elora Mitchell, 171 pages - You might have seen me mention this excellent YA dystopian in the past - it's well worth your time!


Unholy Alliance by Haley Yager and Lacy Yager, 174 pages - I read this paranormal romance for review and it's pretty great.  If you like urban fantasy and vampires, you may want to give it a shot.


Some Writer!: The Story of E.B. White by Melissa Sweet, 176 pages - If you're in anyway interested in the life story of E.B. White, the author of Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, this tribute is a must read.


Have you read any of these books?  What are some of the shortest books that you've read?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting.

  3. Nice list! I haven't read any of these but I'm hoping to read Coraline at some point this year. I only started reading Gaiman in January and so far I've managed three books so I'm definitely happy with myself haha!

  6. This was a very good list of recommendations. Coraline is a fabulous story. I can't recommend it enough.

    Tuck Everlasting was one of my favorite books when I was a kid, too.

    Amelia Lost sounds interesting. I've always thought that her disappearance was terribly sad.

  8. Gaiman is one of two authors that brought me into fantasy so I will always have a place from him even if I don't devour his books like I used to.

    Wheel's of Change looks awesome, checking my library for it today.
