I've not read as many of them as I thought, so among my choices for this Top 5 Wednesday, I'll include some of the novellas that I am most looking forward to.
5. Night of Cake & Puppets by Laini Taylor
As soon as I was finished with Daughter of Smoke & Bone, I knew I would want to read this. It is a side story for Kaoru's best friend, Zuzana. Zuzana was an amazing character in Daughter of Smoke & Bone. She had so much life and spark that I wanted to find out more about her. It details her first date with a boy named Mik aka Violin Boy. Who knows what trouble these two will get into?
4. The Demon in the Wood by Leigh Bardugo
I loved the Darkling in Shadow & Bone and was holding out hope that he wasn't as bad as everyone was saying. Maybe he could be redeemed? Sadly, it isn't looking like that is going to happen. Well, if I can't have that happy ending, at least I can get a glimpse of what he was like before he became the Darkling in this novella.
3. The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas
There is no such thing as too much Celaena Sardothien. There were a few things in Throne of Glass that she mentioned, or at least one person in particular (Sam), that I want explained. There may be at least a glimpse of that in these novellas and I'd be so pleased to read these sooner rather than later.
2. Happily Ever After by Kiera Cass
As much as I love reading about America Singer and her journey to the throne, I want to read about some of the characters before they entered her life: Amberly, Maxon's mother; Aspen, the guard who loves America. These sides stories sound like they will help me to understand the motivations of these characters more. Whether that means I will like them more or not has yet to be determined.
1. Glitches by Marissa Meyer
