Top 5 Novellas/Short Books I’ve Read This Year

Tangled Fates by Denise D. Young

Tangled Fates could either be a long novella or a short book, but I just had to include it! The author writes such vivid and amazing descriptions, placing the reader right in the story with an interesting setting and even more interesting characters. Who doesn’t love a good shifter book?

You Stole My Heart by Kristal Dawn Harris

This was my first introduction to Kristal Dawn Harris’s books, and I have to say I loved it! She played with one of my favorite tropes in an exciting way. If you haven’t read Kristal’s books, I highly recommend you do! I’m looking forward to reading more myself.

Forever in a Moment by Charlotte O’Shay

Charlotte O’Shay is an author who can make you feel so much in a book. She writes incredible characters and sets the scene so well as to put the reader directly in the book. I loved Forever in a Moment and I know others will too!

Curse of the Blacknoc Witch by Tori V. Rainn

I love Grimm’s fairy tales because they have a distinctly dark fantasy feel to them, and I love that Curse of the Blacknoc Witch has a very similar feel. This book was about redemption, sacrifice, and love. A perfect short read for those who like dark fantasy.

He Is Watching by Denise Carbo

I’ve read two books by Denise Carbo this year and they have both ended up on my top 5 lists in their categories. I’m excited to explore more! He Is Watching is a great story about Julie escaping to a small town to avoid her stalker when she runs into a sweet guy named Joe who helps protect her. It’s really worth a read!

Book Review of Curse of the Blacknoc Witch by Tori V. Rainn

My Review

Bad children being forced to run from evil creatures every night against their will? Monsters eating children alive and spitting them out into monsters? How dark and gruesome! This book captivated me from beginning to end. The world building in the forest is phenomenal, with small bits of humor thrown in there that made me chuckle. I loved Samuel’s determination to save children from an inescapable doom and Layla’s bravery as she fights off monsters and tries to break the curse.

This book has a dark Grimm’s fairy tales type of feel to it with fun little riddles along the way. Every scene in the forest, my heart was in my throat as I wondered what would happen next. The cover is stunning, the story gripping. This was a wonderful read and I really enjoyed it! I highly recommend.

My rating: 5 stars
