Top Ten Tuesday – Short Stories and Novellas I’ve Read


Hello fellow book lovers! I hope you’re all having a great week so far and reading some awesome books. This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is about short stories and novellas you’ve read and loved. I honestly don’t read too many of them and only read the ones that are related to other books/series. I guess I’m just not into short stories that much. So, here are 5 short stories/novellas I’ve read and really enjoyed.

Top Ten Tuesday, which was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and has been moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January 16, 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.




Daniel and Six’s love story was short, sweet, and absolutely heartwarming. It’s about Holder and Sky’s best friends and I loved it just as much as Hopeless.


Unite Me (Shatter Me 1.5 and 2.5) by Tahareh Mafi


Destroy Me is told from Warner’s POV while Fracture Me is from Adam’s.  I love different POVs, so these two were really fun to read. I definitely enjoyed Warner’s perspective more than Adam’s cause I’m Team Warner all the way.


New Music (The Art of Lainey #1.5) by Paula Stokes


This was short and super adorable and swoony. I love reading epilogues and short stories about characters I’ve come to love. I mean who doesn’t enjoy getting little updates on their favorite stories/characters?!



Kings of Rittenhouse – A Shameless King Prequel by Maya Hughes


I just finished reading Shameless King last week and really enjoyed it. I read the prequel first which was included in the ARC the author sent me. It’s a great introduction that left me curious, intrigued, and excited for the series.


Do you like reading short stories or novellas? What are some of your favorites? Did you ready any of these?

As always, hope you have a wonderful day! Happy reading loves!


Reading Habits Book Tag


Hello everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Anyway, I was visiting some of my favorite blogs and saw this over at Michelle’s from Firstbooklove. I know I have other tags and blog posts to do, but this one looked easy peasy and fun.

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

In my bedroom, cozy and comfy in bed. I am working on creating a nice reading den in the garage. We are converting the garage to an entertainment space of some sort and I wanted a little reading area, so my boyfriend is going to build me bookshelves and I’m going to buy the comfiest recliner chair.  

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Lately, I’ve been reading mostly on my kindle or ipad, but definitely bookmarks.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?

It really depends. If I’m into the story, I need to find a place where I can stop which is usually very difficult when I really want to keep going, but have to sleep or stop for some reason. If the story is just okay, I try to finish the chapter I’m on, but if I really need to stop, anywhere is fine. I usually reread a a page or two before the current one when I start again so my mind is refreshed.

Do you eat or drink whilst reading?

I can actually do both when I’m on my kindle or ipad. Mostly snacks though, but once in a while I’d have my e-reader while eating lunch or dinner. With my physical copies, I still do, but I try to be VERY VERY careful.

Multitasking: Music or TV whilst reading?

Music is fine. Sometimes I can watch TV if I’m reading romance books, but it really depends. If I do have the TV on, it’s usually a show I’ve seen before already.

One book at a time or several?

Again, it depends on my mood. I can read multiple, sometimes just one. I think the most I’ve read at one time is probably 4. Any more than that and I think my brain will overload.

Reading at home or everywhere?

Definitely everywhere and anytime I can. Use your imagination and I’d probably read there already.

Read out loud or silently in your head?

Silently in my head.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?

I rarely ever skip pages and that usually happens when I’m close to DNF’ing a book. I do skim once in a while when the story is dragging.

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I definitely do my best to keep it like new.

Do you write in your books?

I have before for school, but now I don’t. I guess that’s why I sometimes like reading on my ipad cause I can highlight without writing on my books.

Well, I hope you enjoyed reading my answers. I don’t feel like tagging anyone, but if you’re reading this, considered yourself TAGGED!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!
