    20+ YA Books Under 400 Pages

    *Sometimes we just need a quick read. Something that isn’t too complex and is easy to pick up and set down. These books are usually on the shorter side and don’t have a difficult reading level. Read on for my list of YA books that fit the requirements.

    Not all of these are Fantasy. There is some sci-fi mixed in with the paranormal. Nor are they all strictly under 400 pages. Some of them are just over 400 but they all make good candidates for quick reading. Quite a few of these I have enjoyed but there are still a lot that I need to read.

    Why are some of these still on my unread shelf?

    I’m trying to figure out why nine of these books are still sitting on my unread shelf. With them being just over 400 pages or less I don’t really have much excuse for not reading them. Some of them have even been on my tbr in months past and I still haven’t gotten to them. Yikes. Well, I guess I know where I need to start my tbr for November!

    Happy reading friends!
