I don’t know if it’s that I’ve just noticed it more now I’m a book blogger and I’m more aware of e-book novellas but there seem to be a lot of novellas in many series of books. Quite often you can find a 1.5 novella in-between the first and second instalment in a series. For example, Crossing The Line between Pushing The Limits and Dare You To in Katie McGarry’s Pushing The Limits series.
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with novellas in this form. If it’s a series I absolutely love then I tend to really want to read the novellas because I want to drain every last bit of information about the characters and the series. Quite often novellas are told from a character’s viewpoint that you haven’t heard before which is great. This is especially the case when you absolutely love the secondary characters.
Novellas can be great for that extra tantalising bit of information about the series, but then they can be so frustrating because you want a full length novel on that character! Sometimes, novellas can be a bit pricy for what they are.
What are your thoughts on novellas in series? Do you love them? Hate them? Please feel free to share your thoughts!
