Short Books for the Intimidated Reader

temp.PNG 2I don’t know what it is about a big fat book that grabs my attention. Maybe it’s knowing that there must be a grand story within its many, many pages, or maybe it’s just the feeling of that substantial weight in my hands. Whatever it is, I love big books (and I cannot lie!). But, for some people, an enormous tome can cause anxiety and intimidation. It can seem like a much bigger task than they had originally set out for; just looking for a fun book to read on the beach, or at a doctors office while waiting for their appointment (ugh, I HATE the doctor). So, with that sort of person in mind, and anyone else who may be interested, I’ve put together a short list of books that are 260 pages or less.

About Me

An Introduction

IMG_0512Hello! My name is Summer and I’m a book reader, collector, and reviewer. Basically, a professional bookworm :). I really can’t think of anything I’d rather be. Unfortunately, reading books doesn’t pay my bills so I am also a Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA). When I am not reading, collecting, and reviewing books, I’m taking photos of them. I have been slowly growing a following on Instagram (Bookstagram for the bookishly inclined). It’s become a passion of mine at this point which has played a huge part in the making of this blog. There is so much I want to say about books and there is simply not enough room in the caption section of Instagram to say it all!

As a reader I lean towards fantasy/sci-fi both YA and adult, but I read just about anything and everything. There will be content here that will benefit just about every reader. I am a lover of books, not genres, therefore all types of readers are welcome and encouraged to stop by and say hello! I want to connect and spread farther out in the book community and I’m very much looking forward to making new friends!
