32 Short, New Books to Help You CRUSH Your Reading Challenge

"Someday, this year will end! And with the ringing in of 2021, we will come to the end of this year's Goodreads Reading Challenge. Of course, there's still plenty of more time this year to unplug, find someplace comfy, and get lost in a great book (and we strongly suggest that you do!)...plus that will also help you crush those annual reading goals that you may have set in the distant past of [checks notes]...January.
Every book here was both published this year and has fewer than 250 pages (let's be honest, the longest book here is 240 pages). That's a nice, achievable length that also has enough oomph to get in a great story as well. And we've delivered up the perfect excuse to catch up on some of the new books across fiction and nonfiction genres that made their grand entrances in 2020."
