Novella Reading Week Sign-ups

Magical Urban Fantasy Reads

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 Rachel of Fiktshun 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.
