Literary Love: Short and Sweet
All week long, I've been dying to jump in and contribute a post to the Literary Love event (being hosted by Estella's Revenge, Doing Dewey, Love at First Book, and From Isi). Each day, I wake up and say, "This is the day! I will write this post TODAY!" And then...Tater Tot wakes up and wants to be fed, and Small Fry wakes up and starts demanding eggs WITH CHEESE, and we have to be at playgroup by 9:30, and the sink is full and I have to work out at some point? and did anyone go grocery shopping this week? and now suddenly it's 9pm and please just hand me a glass of wine so I can watch more Olympics.
So, in honor of me not having time to do anything ever, I thought I'd give you a quick list of my favorite short (ish) novels that pack a big punch in a small number of pages.
1. The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
2. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
3. Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King
4. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
5. Naked Pictures of Famous People by Jon Stewart
What are your favorite short books?
