Once upon a time in 2015 I did a post on a few novella’s that I read but didn’t do a full review on. I shared a few thoughts on them. I never did that again. I have reviewed some novella’s that were for review or that I had a lot of thoughts on, but that certainly weren’t them all.
I do believe in not reviewing everything. However I feel novella’s, novellettes and the like do often get the short end of the stick in that department, and lists unless they are highly popular. I might not read a huge amount of them but on occasion I certainly enjoy reading a few.
So here we are. I’m going to go back in time to the first time I did this and work myself forward to present time. I’d like to do 5 at a time or so. It also won’t mean every short story or novella will get a place here if I don’t have any thoughts on them (or if it has been too long) but I just want to give some of these some extra attention. So this might be a monthly thing but maybe also not?
If it is found free online I will also link to it.
Pages counts are calculated based on aprox. 250 words a page. Especially that last one cut off at 180 pages is iffy at best. Some novella’s are over 200 pages. But this is just meant as a guideline.

This was a great idea. Sometimes I like to pick up something that’s not going to take days to read, and also can give me an idea of an author’s writing style without commiting to a full novel. Thanks for the heads up on these, and also for reminding me I have some of these on my Kindle to read. 👍✨

Me too. And I really have realized my love for novella’s in the last few months.
