It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Today, I share my top 5 books with less than 300 pages!
Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
A friend recommended the Netflix adaptation to me recently but I decided to check the book out first. Annihilation was such a chilling, fascinating and unsettling read.
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
I wrote an in-depth review on this one, so I’ll just say that this was one of the most atmospheric things I’ve read in a long time! Go ahead and give it a go!
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
If you want something magical, go for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. One of my favorite fairy-tales that are non-traditional. So many wonderful and creative moments are to be found in this one!
The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
The Bad Beginning was the intro to the Series of Unfortunate Events. The books are extremely intricate and thought-provoking for children’s novels. All of the novels are rather short, so you’ll be done reading the entire series before you even know it.
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
This one scared me so, so much. Far more haunting than every horror story I ever picked up, this story about Alzheimer’s is deeply unsettling and won’t let you go.
