"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
This week's topic is: Books I Read In One Sitting (or would have if I had the time)
To come up with a list for this, I went through my novellas and chose the ones I really liked a lot, so everyone could read them in one sitting. There are a lot of large books I'd love to read in one go but when it comes to about five hundred pages, it gets tough. I do need my sleep. Also, I like to linger over a story.
Anyway, these are the books that are short that made it to my Top Twelve.
