All About Books

Short Fiction

I used to not be a huge fan of short fiction/novellas, because I mostly read either anthologies or bonus stories of series. When started publishing more and more short fiction though, I started to read those and liked them more and more. As I don’t review many novellas but still want to recommend them, here is a list of all novellas that I’ve read.

Stories are sorted by title (the/a excluded), links lead to my review if available, Goodreads or directly to the story (in case of free novellas) if not.
