Top 10 Tuesday: Shortest Books on My TBR

A new Tuesday, a new prompt for Top 10 Tuesday. This week the prompt is favorite heroines. Boy, absolutely nothing came to mind. So, it's time to forge my own path - a few weeks ago I shared the LONGEST books on my TBR wish list, so this week I'll share the shortest in terms of page count.

Thanks to Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl for hosting another week of Top Ten Tuesday. I enjoy participating each week for a couple reasons. I'm a compulsive list maker and love a good list. And, I love a connection with other readers as I wander their book blogs. Here are the shortest books hanging out on my TBR.

What's one of your favorite short books?

I didn't think I had very many novellas on my TBR since I'm not a fan of short stories. Color me surprised that I had so many (most of which I'd forgotten about)! A novella is loosely defined as between about 100-200 pages. I have another 20 that didn't fit here (since it's Top TEN) that range in page count from 160-199. I'll save those for another day!

I think this will be another week that will cause my TBR to grow (and grow). I can't wait to see lists of strong heroines! Here's to all of us reading lots of good books in 2023.

Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.


For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with me, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
