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 bill.

YA books under 400 Pages


So, 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.
