There are just so many amazing novellas that have been released that never seem to make it onto the reading pile. With review books or highly anticipated full-length novels, those super quick but awesome short stories get put on the back burner.
Without making a commitment to read them, stories like DESTROY ME by Tahereh Mafi, DIE FOR HER by Amy Plum, RADIANT by Cynthia Hand, A DANCE WITH DARKNESS by Courtney Allison Moulton or GLITTER & DOOM by Bethany Griffin don’t stand a chance when up against their full-length counterparts.
So that’s what Mindy of Magical Urban Fantasy Reads and I decided to do. Commit to reading as many novellas as we can for one week, setting aside our review books and finally diving into those short stories we’ve been dying to check out for ages.
And we thought that maybe there were one or two readers who might like to join us.
DATES: Novella Reading Week will take place from JUNE 10th to JUNE 16th.
GOAL: To read as many novellas as possible.
OPTIONAL: Write reviews and/or share thoughts on Goodreads, Blogs, Facebook, etc.
GIVEAWAYS: Those who sign up to participate in the challenge can enter the giveaway in the Rafflecopter below for two eNovellas from Amazon for the Kindle. There will be three winners.
During the week of the challenge there will be a giveaway for a Book of Your Choice up to $25 USD to two winners. Details on that giveaway will be included in the Novella Reading Week Begins post on June 10th.
TO PARTICIPATE: Leave a link in the Linky form at the bottom of this post with any of the places you hang out online – Blog, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Goodreads. Reviews will not be required to participate, but to be eligible for the BoYC giveaway, you’ll have to prove you’ve read the novella(s) by at least sharing your non-spoiler-y thoughts in the comments.
