Favorite Novellas/Short Stories

Hey Gang! It’s no secret that I’ve been in a half-hearted slump with my reading lately, so I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite lists in the meantime. Short stories and novellas are one of the party tricks I utilize to pull myself out of a shut down and for the purpose of this post I’ll consider this to be any story under 200 pages in length. Whether it’s a companion to a series that I love or a story meant to stand on it’s own, I find myself invigorated and accomplished when I get drawn into a mini book. Do you read novellas? If so, do you find they help balance your reading schedule? Do you count anthologies in this category or just individual tales? Below I’ve included some of my favorite short reads of all time; feel free to share yours in the comments below as well. ❤

  1. I read The Demon in the Wood and liked it a lot and I knew of The Deal of a Lifetime, but didn’t realize it was a novella. What’s funny is that I’m pretty sure I held Backman’s book the the last time I was in the library:this speaks to my keen powers of observation 😊

    The others are new to me. I loved Grant’s Newsflesh and Parasitology series, so I’ll check out her two books listed above.

  2. I’m afraid I don’t know any of them but I’ll be adding them to my TBR. I love a good novella particularly when I’m in a slump and can’t face a full length book. Not so keen on short stories, they’re too short so I don’t feel like I really get into them.
