Novellas: I don't read them, however much I might love the author. My reasons? It's either because novellas are very short (I love lengthy novels with deep characters and well-established plotlines, and those are lacking in novellas), or because I feel that some authors ride the success wave of some novels and continue spinning short stories with the same characters over and over, with no ending - and I hate that! Thoughts anyone?

Prairiegirl_reading I don‘t care for short stories as a general rule. I often just want more. Novellas feel the same way sometimes but I‘d take a novella over a book of stories. 2y
Booknerd2 I agree with you. I‘m afraid that about the time I get sucked in and totally invested it will be over too quickly, leaving me feeling unsatisfied. 😢 2y
Simona I love novellas, and in good ones you can find deep characterization and strong plotlines. My last one is the favorite book in this year (so far) 2y

s-b @Prairiegirl_reading This being how I feel about novellas, I think I'd dislike short stories even more! 2y
s-b @Booknerd2 exactly! 2y
s-b @Simona I've checked the synopsis of The Standing Chandelier, and it seems interesting enough that I might just give it a chance. 2y
sammisho I agree. I don't like short stories in general. And when they are part of a series, I just wish they would hurry up and write the next book instead! 2y
