How often have we wanted to brush up a novel in a day? This usually happens because of our ever so busy schedules, which leaves us with barely any time to start a new book, let alone finish it. This is why short novels are a luxury. A book that you can devour in a few hours and feel extremely elated after. What is better?

Here are a list of 5 short novels that can make your day. Or should we say, hours?

1. The Old Man and the Sea

2. The Eye

3. Snoopy and “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night”

4. A Small Place

5. Master of Miniatures
