This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl is Top Ten Quick Reads/Books to Read When Time Is Short. Here are ten four+-star books that can be read in an afternoon (all of them well under 200 pages):

  1. The 13 Clocks by James Thurber
  2. Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan
  3. A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas
  4. If God Invented Baseball: Poems by E. Ethelbert Miller
  5. 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff
  6. The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
  7. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
  8. March: Book One by John Lewis
  9. Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood
  10. For Every One by Jason Reynolds

How about you? Are there books you’d recommend grabbing if time is short and you just want to while away a few hours?

The House on Mango Street has been on my TBR list for a long time. I am going to make a better effort to get it read this year.

Great list!
