Time seems shorter than ever, but fortunately there's a wealth of books that are perfect to fit into a single evening or weekend. I loved that these books were on the shorter side but still packed with thoughtful explorations of humanity, reality, and relationships.


The details of a hummingbird rescue operation highlight the beauty and fragility of some of our favorite species.

A graceful and fierce protagonist journeys across and fantasy empire with her unlikely companion, facing political intrigue and the dangers of the road.

A god-blessed orphan girl schemes to join the sky-pirates in an alternate New Orleans. The setting was enough to pull me in but the character's voice is phenomenal.
