ArmchairBEA #3 Novellas/Short Stories
Now it is time to give a little love to those little stories in your life. Share your love for your favorite shorts of any form. What is a short story or novella that doesn’t get the attention that it deserves? Recommend to readers what shorts you would recommend they start with. How about listing some short story anthologies based upon genres or authors?
It's really hard for me to get into short stories because they always feel unfinished or I'm dying to read more and just feel sad that it ended.
But what I do love about some novellas is that they tie bigger stories together, characters that didnt get enough attention get their own story.
Some of my favorites include: Laurell K. Hamiltons Micah, Lauren Christina's Beautiful Bastard novella series, Samtha Young's On Dublin novella series and more.
But one of my major favorites, that gave me insight into one kick butt lead heroine, was Sierra Deans The Secret Guide to Dating Monsters.
The series as a whole is fantastic, but the novella grabbed my attention write away, with the writing, humor, lead characters persona and the world building.
If you haven't read this series yet, I'd say give the novella a try and go from there. See the blurb below!
