Tell Me Something Tuesday: Novellas…

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings.
This week’s question:

Novellas….how do you feel about important parts of the overall story being pulled from the main books and published as novellas?

I love novellas. I think they’re a great way of giving the reader the chance to stay with the characters and the story a little bit longer. The reader doesn’t have to abruptly part with them…He/she has the opportunity to look forward to more…and I love it. Every time I read a novel, I find myself wishing for a couple of novellas….

And you? How do you feel about novellas?

    I do like the Novella format. Especially when it involves characters I’ve become attached to or stories I don’t want to see end….

    If I have read a book or series and truly fallen in love with the characters and story, I will read a novella in order to continue the experience. It’s not my preferred book form, though. I love the feeling of starting a new full-length book, and if that book is on the long side, it’s even better (hello, Kristen Ashley!). I like to settle in with the author’s imaginary world for a while.

    I love them! I feel the same way you do. Sometimes it’s really hard for me to part from the characters, and like you said, novellas gives us a little more time to live with them :-).

    Honestly, I don’t like them at all. I have read a few but generally I stay away from them. I’m not sure why. I always feel like, if they were important they’d be in the book. *runs and hides*

    • Really? I am shocked. I wouldve thought you of all people would love them. You love books. Lol

      I myself love novellas. I like them more than the retelling of a story in another characters POV. I have read some great retellings but only a few. Most retellings arent great stories.

        I do love books but I really dislike novellas. They actually annoy me. LOL As for retelling from a different POV, I don’t mind it but one of my biggest book disappointments was a retelling of a book I loved.
