Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is ‘Books I Read In One Sitting’ but honestly? I read most books in one sitting (reading IS my superpower after all lol), so I decided to feature some of my fave novellas instead – quick reads that almost everyone can read in one sitting, no matter how fast or slow a reader you are.

The homicidal bonnet in Second Impressions and endearing hero Titus in Jane by the Book made these two novellas instant faves for me.
Between Stairs and Stardust had me with its ties to Cinderella, and Facade has some smokin’ hot kisses! (Well… ok … ALL of Pepper’s novellas and books have smokin’ hot kisses)
Always by Jody Hedlund
The Lost Princesses #0.5
(Historical YA Romance)
“It’s everything I love about medieval historical romance especially with a bit of fairy tale flair.“
Deck the Shelves by Toni Shiloh
“A cute Christmas romance perfect for Hallmark movie fans and bookworms alike!“
The Husband Maneuver by Karen Witemeyer
Her Dearly Unintended by Regina Jennings
Runaway Bride by Mary Connealy
Engaging the Competition by Melissa Jagears
or buy them all in one book, With This Ring?
“Each novella about unexpected proposals gives beloved secondary characters their own chance to find love. This quartet of authors consistently writes with hilarity, warmth, and toe-curling romance, and their individual contributions to this entertaining collection hold true to form.”
An Endless Christmas by Cynthia Ruchti
(Contemporary Christmas Fiction)
“Such love and warmth and laughter and friendship emanated from this novella, courtesy of Cynthia Ruchti’s talented pen.”
“Legacy of Love” by Terri J. Haynes
part of The Runaway Brides Collection
“That first kiss? Whew! Mercy, it’s the stuff of swoons and weak knees and husky voices.”
Magnolia Mistletoe by Lindsey P. Brackett
An Edisto Christmas
This sweet novella is romantic & Christmasy & beachy – and everything wonderful you want in a read that has ‘mistletoe’ in the title.
Hemlock Creek Suspense series by Heather Day Gilbert
“Edge-of-your-seat suspense, high-stakes action, swoony romance, and some surprising twists ensure you won’t be putting these stories down until you’ve reached the end.”
12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep
Once Upon a Dickens Christmas #1
“With an intriguing nod to Dickens’ Bleak House, plus a setting and plot that would make Agatha Christie herself sit up and take notice, this novella will be a hit with fans of Victorian mysteries.”
It’s rare for me to find a novella collection where I love each story, but like With This Ring? (that I featured above), here are a few other 5 star novella collections for me!
I highly recommend each of these!
