When it comes to reading, it’s not always about length…
Shorter books frequent on my shelf and there’s nothing that beats the feeling of getting to the end of another read. Not only does it give you the satisfaction of having achieved something, but reading apparently makes you smarter, so the more books you read…
Either way here’s a bunch of shorter reads I recommend…. and guess what, they are all Indie books!
‘The Seller of Sins’ by Kristina Gallo
Page Count: 84
‘The Seller of Sins’ by Kristina Gallo didn’t feel like a shorter read. It carries a depth and style that will make you think you are reading something much longer and detailed.
To quote my review: ‘this tale carries a deeper moral story about love and what really matters and we realize this at the end…’
‘Fated to Meet You’ by Despoina Kemeridou
Genre: Fairy tale/ Romance
Page Count: 49
‘Fated to Meet You’ by Despoina Kemeridou is a feel good story that begins like a YA novel which quickly spins into a fairy tale. It’s a page turner which I managed to finish in just over an hour. Here’s what I said in my review from last year:
‘You’ll find there’s a lot more to the story other than happy every after including a curse and even prophecy in what is a short but fun read…’
‘Break Them All!!: A Modern Era Awakening!’ by DRTao
Genre: New Age (Self-help)
Page Count: 65
‘Break Them All!!: A Modern Era Awakening!’ by DRTao is a break the mold mind opening book designed to get you thinking. It’s unique and looks at how to overcome our ‘phenotypes’ (ego, ambition) in order to be more productive.
‘Well written and structured this is a book that may provide readers with insight to some answers you never thought could be out there!’
‘Swinging Sanity’ by N.F. Mirza
Page Count: 70
‘Swinging Sanity’ by N.F. Mirza is a personal collection of poetry that is deep and incredibly brave to present to the world. You may know the author as awesome blogger ‘Stoner on a Roller Coaster’and I urge you to check this one out!
Recent review quote:
‘For anyone who is a fan of immersive poetry and for those looking to take on a read that is different but also very honest, I recommend this book. It tells a story while also being inspiring.’
‘Dead End (Clown Conspiracy Book 1): A Short Thriller’ by Mallory Kelly
Page Count: 48
‘Dead End (Clown Conspiracy Book 1) by Mallory Kelly is the first of 4 chilling shorts that read like episodes of a crime horror TV show. Two agents are in pursuit of a killer clown which then turns out to be two clowns which then becomes a whole conspiracy. I’ve been diving into the series every so often this year and I highly recommend the series..
Memories of Mars: a Novella (Custodian Library Archives Book 1) by Colin Yeoman
Genre: Science Fiction/Space Exploration
Page Count: 68
‘Memories of Mars’ by Colin Yeoman took me by complete surprise. For what started out as one story going one place became the rabbit hole of perhaps our existence. This one got me, and managed to do it in 68 pages. To quote my very recent review:
‘Colin Yeoman has cleverly fused real elements of biological transmission experimentation with the human memory which possibly fills in the gaps of our history in the universe and more specifically Mars which is wholeheartedly original.’
And so that brings us to the end of some awesome short book rec’s. Have you got a short book that you would recommend?
Thanks for reading!
