all about the “short and sweet” intros and reasons. Until recent years (“recent”
being maybe 2-3 years) I rarely, if ever, read novellas. But then friends began
self-publishing and to begin their journey into publishing, they penned
novellas. Of course, knowing this, I was ready, willing and excited to give
these books a fair chance.
and even some emotionally complex stories packed in these small packages. The
tales I collected below feature historical stories, contemporary tales and of course,
a romantic-comedy (or two). I’ve read most of these, but there is one on this
list that sits on my shelf unread (but in fairness to me, it’s a new addition).
these stories with “short and sweet” thoughts. Let’s have a look.
and sad, this novel is beautiful. Amazon | Goodreads
bliss a-la You’ve Got Mail. Amazon | Goodreads
one sits on my shelf unread. But as I said, it along book one (what!? I
*had* to feature this one because 1: the color theme is pink and 2: I prefer
its softer appearance) a new addition. Amazon | Goodreads
you like intellectual romances set in foreign (aka stunning) locales, this contemporary adult
novella is your perfect match. Amazon | Goodreads
romantic-comedy bliss! This one is all about the small town lovin’ and romancin’.
In other words, it’s a delight. Amazon | Goodreads
best blogging friends, Amber has released a handful of sweet novellas
(contemporaries and historical reads). Among them is this new adult romance –
plus you can read her just-released companion story to this one, or her spin on
the Sleeping Beauty fairytale! Amazon | Goodreads
and fast-paced, this novella story is a kind of sci-fi tale that works in some
cute romantics. Amazon | Goodreads
may be the shortest book on this list (not sure because I didn’t fact check),
but this novella is beautiful, and serves as an excellent tease for this couple’s
full-length love story. Amazon | Goodreads
I’ve re-read. If you’ve read some of
my prior posts, you know re-reading is not something I often do. But this one I
have experienced in two different story mediums (written and audio), and both
were enchanting. Amazon | Goodreads
