Top Ten Tuesday: 9-1-2024: Favorite Novellas/Short Stories

Evening all!

Top Ten Tuesday, Pink, Cute, Hearts

A very happy welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday of 2024! This week I choose my own prompt, namely Favourite Novellas/Short Stories.

Because I already did a Top 5 featuring my anticipated reads for the first quarter of 2023 last week, I didn’t want to go for another one similar to it. Plus, I do love a good short story/novella! Oh yes I do! So this was a very fun prompt and I was eager to share all my favourites with you all. Though it wasn’t easy because I got so many good and fun novellas/short stories on my shelves. But in the end I managed a blend of 4.5, 5+, and 5 starred short stories/novellas. I got a lot of horror (apparently I read a lot of those) and some romance (3 of them), and one non-fiction. I didn’t even notice I had that many horror short stories/novellas until now. Today I learned!

Let me know in the comments what short stories/novellas you recommend, this girl is always on the hunt for new ones!


What is TTT?

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Each week on Tuesday there is a topic and it is up to the bloggers to find books that fit that topic! It can be 10 books, but you can also do less. You may even do your own spin to it to make it more unique or to have it work better for yourself.

    1. Haha, I know right. Some books are terrifying. Thank you! Yes, some people are really dismissive of them which bothers me, hopefully I changed a few peeps minds with these epic recs.
