Hey guys! This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is ‘Books Under 300 Pages.’ I like topics like these because you get to share some of your favorite books and learn about books that others like as well. The tricky part about this topic though is finding books that I like under 300 pages. I can’t wait to see what books you guys pick!
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah @BionicBookWorm. Each week we respond to that week’s topic and link back to her page. Go check out her page to join in!
I know I talk about this book a lot, but it’s a huge favorite of mine. I love the story and the way it’s written. The length is perfect and the plot isn’t rushed. I’ve had this book on my kindle for a long time, but when I finally got a hardcopy I surprised at how short it was. I guess when you’re engrossed in a story you don’t really pay attention to the number of pages.
I absolutely love Lauren Graham and have read her memoir twice now and I will probably read it again someday in the near future. I’m a HUGE fan of Gilmore Girls (yes I have seen her in other things) so when my friend let me borrow this book I read it in one sitting. The second time I read it I did the audiobook with Lauren Graham reading it (it’s ALWAYS better when the author reads the book) and it was sooo good.
I wasn’t actually sure if I liked this book at first because of a certain character, but the further I read the more I enjoyed it and came to understand that character. I’m definitely happy I decided to finish it even if there were tears (there were many many more tears when I saw the movie). It’s a really good book, but make sure you’ve some tissues handy.
I really liked this book because of how different it was from other books I’ve read. The story is told from the point of view of an autistic boy named Christopher. He is trying to figure out who killed the neighbor’s dog. While doing this he goes on this journey and finds more than the answers he was looking for.
Another tear jerker, A Walk to Remember is about a girl with cancer and how a boy falls in love with her. It’s a beautiful, but heartbreaking story with tons of sweet quotes. Romance normally isn’t a genre I venture into, but Nicholas Sparks is my weakness.
