Top Ten Tuesday ~ Favorite Novellas/Short Stories

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader GirlTop Ten Tuesday was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

  1. Those are all now to me ones! And wow! You found more than 10! I realized a few of my faves were merely scenes and not even a full story, so it was harder to pick ones I remember liking! Lol!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. It was tough to narrow down my choices as I have spent a lot of time reading novellas and short stories over the years.

  2. Funny you should post this today when I just blogged about the novella by Colum McCann. I do like novellas, short stories not as much.

  3. I'd be curious about Mark Twain since I read him as a kid.

    1. His novella titled, The Diaries of Adam & Eve by Mark Twain, was definitely worth the read!

  4. Great list! I haven’t read any of these, but I'm glad that you found some short fiction that you loved.
