It’s finally here! I cannot believe I get to spend an entire week reading novellas. It feels like such a guilty pleasure. Especially with the pile of review books I have. But the timing couldn’t be more perfect, as I am totally in the mood to dive into shorter reads.
And I’m super excited to be co-hosting the week with Mindy of Magical Urban Fantasy Reads who has some amazing novellas on her pile this week. If you’d like to check out what she’s reading, stop by her site, HERE.
While I already mentioned the five books I definitely plan on reading for Novella Reading Week in the My Reading Pile post on Saturday, I thought I’d show them, and a few other novellas I’d love to read, here.
While I only think I’ll be able to read the five I mentioned in My Reading Pile, my goal is to read seven novellas this week. And if I can read a few more, then I’ll be totally stoked!

DESTROY ME (Shatter Me #1.5) by Tahereh Mafi
ORIGINS: THE FIRE (Mila 2.0 #0.5) by Debra Driza
DIE FOR HER (Die for Me #2.5) by Amy Plum
FLIRTING WITH MAYBE by Wendy Higgins

And while I have listed these twelve novellas for this challenge, I may go off-pile and read any of the twenty or thirty other novellas I have on my Kindle waiting to be read. Maybe I’ll even find a new one.
As mentioned in the sign-up post, there is a giveaway associated with this reading week.

Congratulations Vivien and Jen! Random chose you as the winners for Novella Reading Week.
I will be contacting you You’ve been contacted by email for your details and your book selections. I hope you had an awesome time reading those novellas!
And thanks so much to everyone who participated in the event last week and for sharing your thoughts about each of your reads!
***A note: Both winners did share their thoughts. The Random only says “not a review” as that was my alert that the entry was only the name, not a link to the review, and that I needed to check the comments for the number of review entries that should get added.***
Good luck in the challenge this week! I hope you get to read a few novellas you’ve been just dying to read and maybe even a few new ones you hadn’t even thought about reading until now!
Just leave your review links in the Linky below or your thoughts in the comments.
Happy Novella Reading!
