books that were short and wonderful.

Today's Top Ten Tuesday is all about short reads--books you read quickly, short books, etc. I've actually been working on a post for books that I finished very quickly, but they're not necessarily short (case in point: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell). So I'm going to save that post for another day. Today, I'm going to be focusing on great books that I've read that were under 200 pages.

Today I'm linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for a Top Ten Tuesday!
