Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is: Favorite Novellas/Short Stories
Apparently, I don’t read a ton of novellas/short stories? And it’s even rarer for me to be in love with them, as it turns out. So I only have nine instead of ten, and I chose some…. other formats. Because it’s my blog and I do what I want. But I liked this opportunity to highlight some of my favorite shorter works so… here we go! Covers link to Goodreads!
The Freeze Frame Revolution by Peter Watts This was actually a recent acquisition, and one that I really enjoyed. And, apparently there are more novellas and short stories set in this world so we should all probably check those out too! | My Thoughts
Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells Wow, Murderbot is fun. If you like space at all, and you like snarky main characters, you’ll want to check this out. Also, news of a new, full length novel dropped today, so even more reason! | My Thoughts
Saga by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples Do graphic novels count? Well they DO NOW. I mean. They’re novella length, right? I feel like most people have heard of Saga, and I quite adore it, so if you’ve somehow missed it, you probably should remedy that.
Alex + Ada by Jonathan Luna & Sarah Vaughn Thanks to Greg @ Book Haven for this series being in my life! Such a fun (and shorter, if you don’t wish to invest Saga-length time) graphic novel series that was also really thought provoking and gave me the feels!
Morrighan (The Remnant Chronicles 0.5) by Mary E Pearson Sometimes prequel novellas are decent. Sometimes they’re useless. And sometimes, like this one, they’re really good. I also loved the series, which obviously helps.
Midnights(My True Love Gave to Me) by Rainbow Rowell This is the first thing I ever read by Rainbow Rowell (and fine, still stands as the only thing, though I keep meaning to change that!) and starts this anthology of on the absolute perfect note! | My Thoughts
The Way We Love Here (Meet Cute) by Dhonielle Clayton Gosh, I didn’t know I could have such feels from a short story! Dhonielle proved me wrong, clearly. I really wish this was a full-length story just so I could be immersed in it longer. Worth reading the whole anthology for this alone, tbh. |My Thoughts
259 Million Miles (Meet Cute) by Kass Morgan I mean, I was hesitant to read Kass Morgan’s stuff again after The 100, but wow, this one sucked me in! Keeping my fingers crossed for her new book! | My Thoughts
