I read a horror novella called Respite for the Dead that was really good.

I love novellas. I feel like we get to see more into side characters or other parts of main characters’ lives that we don’t get to see in the main books. Happy New Year! Thanks for the giveaway.

Another great list Angela! My favorite novella this year is Dark Zero by Kresley Cole, it made my top 10 of best books. I loved how this prequel gave us a glimpse at all the characters before they met.

I’ve only read two novellas that were published this year. Of these, Once upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt was the best.

I’m sad to say that I am not a novella person! Often it’s a waste of money to me ($2.99 for 40 pages just isn’t worth it) — but there have been some novellas that were awesome. Shadows by JLA is one of them – now that is worth my time! I like novella bind-ups too, like HarperCollins did for Tahereh Mafi’s series. ANWAY! Fantastic list, Angela! =)

Check out my Top Ten post!

I would say My Star My Love – Eversea Novella by Boyd. Absolutely loved the Eversea series and that makes a huge difference in my reading novellas. I like them to be connected to authors or stories I loved.

I have read a few of these. However, there are a few that have caught my eye as well. Thank you for this chance.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
