Do you like Novellas? Generally speaking, I don’t. I run from novellas. Why? Because their short. I can never really justify spending money on something I know will take me only an hour to read. And let’s say the novella is good. Let’s say its awesome. If that’s the case, then I usually want more, but I can’t get more because it’s a novella.
But, there are a few exceptions: if the novella is a prequel to another novel, the novella is the point of view of one character from an already fuller novel, or the novella is about another character or couple that is featured in a full length novel.
Otherwise in my opinion every thing happens too fast. Thoughts?

I feel the same way! I did like A Match Made in Texas because it was four in one (plus it had two of my favorite authors)! Those I can see buying, but like you I don’t really get them because I usually want more! The prequels are good though!
I love the picture with this post! Priceless! 😀
I agree too. If there are characters to love and get emotionally invested in, a full length novel gives us more space and time in which to do this 🙂
