To be honest, I haven't read that many novellas. I read Elixir by Jennifer L. Armentrout (which was free, by the way, when I read it) and I read it because I had just finished Deity and I was absolutely dying to find out what happened next. And I read Destroy Me by Tehereh Mafi and it was nice to get Warner's POV (made me a tiny bit more sympathetic toward his character). And I read Bitter Sweet Love by Jennifer L. Armentrout because I was so excited about the series (and I was a bit disappointed in the novella although I'm still really excited about the series). And I read the prequel novellas to Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. And that's basically it. I'm tempted to read Fracture Me because it's from Adam's POV, but I've read a few reviews and I feel like maybe I don't want to read it, that I'll feel the same way about Adam as I ended up feeling about Four. Maybe I don't want to get inside every single character's head. And most of the time, that seems to be what happens in novellas, you get to read from a different character's POV (and there aren't that many authors who can successfully write more than one POV). I just haven't been impressed so far with any novella. To be cynical, it just seems like a way for the publishers (and authors) to make more money and it's so easy to put them out there because of e-readers.
So what do you think about novellas? Do you like reading them? If so, which ones? Do you think you're missing something if you don't read them?
