Happy Wednesday, friends!
Today, in honour of Novellas in November, I thought I would talk about some novellas/short books on my TBR. Not all of these are novellas (some are plays, short stories, graphic novels, etc.), but a short book = a novella in my mind.
Also, this is just a long list of a post, so apologies for that. In all honesty, I was too lazy to get the cover for all 23 of these books so you’ll have to deal with text. I’ve highlighted (*) the books that I’m really excited for, but let me know which ones I should read ASAP.
