Rose/House by Arkady Martine
Clockwork by Philip Pullman
Mrs. Caliban by Rachel Ingalls
Some of these books look to be a bit longer than the entries on the other lists. From the short descriptions, I conclude that it was the pull of the narrative rather than the short length that kept the story going.
“If you’re looking for a story that will change your life and could be read in one sitting, you’re in luck — all of these newly released literary novels clock in at under 300 pages.”
