Top Ten Tuesday: Redo! Ten Books To Read in About One Sitting II


Somehow I missed the birthday part of this week’s TTT so I’m editing to include it!

Happy Birthday, TTT! Ten years and still running!

  1. Great list! The only one I’ve read is Redhead. Fredrik Backman’s 2 novellas are also quick reads! I also love MG titles which mostly can be read in a day! You might have inspired me to create my own list! 🙌😍


  2. I overlooked this topic too – oh well, too late now.
    I don’t know most of your featured books but will make a note of them because though I don’t care for short stories, I find novellas far more enjoyable.
