Books you can read in a day
The ultimate American classic. This 144-page novel is the epitome of a great read. Highly literary but also raunchy and packed full of historical detail. A great past-time read, that everyone should read at least once.
If non-fiction is more your bag, then why not pick up the 64-page We Should All Be Feminists and use this self-isolation time wisely?
A 129-page book. It’s all about standing out and standing up a work. Uh, yes, please. For anyone, but particularly females, who have ever felt silenced or invisible in the workplace. Use this time to reinvigorate yourself before you return to work.
This 272-page read is a slightly longer book on this list, however, it is gripping as hell, and trust me when I say you will not want to put it down. There is no other book out there like this. A historical, horror, murder-mystery with a psychological and philosophical plot written in glorious prose.
This 240-page book is one of my top three favourites of all time. Spanning three portions of a man’s life, once when he is 15 and having an affair with a much older woman, to when he is studying to become a lawyer, and then much later in life when the affair with the woman and the choices he made during his education come together. A historical romance turned tragedy turned domestic suspense. Utterly enthralling.
Famously remembered for the movie – Angelina Jolie stole the crown from Winona Ryder as the leading actress. This was originally a 194-page book. An easy-to-read, yet harrowing story of a woman’s time in a mental hospital in the 1960s.
And lastly, a brilliant translated work at just 176 pages about a woman who is working in a convenience store and is happy to do so, regardless of what others want her life to be like. Fun, easy and gentle read to escape into during self-isolation.
