I have this square as well. I'm reading "The Julian Chapter" which is a short sequel to "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio.

Sue The 'Hear, Read This' podcast was doing novellas for awhile and they all really liked J.L. Carr's A Month in the Country and Levels of Life by Julian Barnes. I haven't read either yet, but the first one has been on my nightstand for months.

For "novella" on my bingo card, I chose "An Uncommon Reader" which is a charming story.

Karin Great ideas. I'm going to listen to Wonder for my Middle Grades, so of I like it maybe I'll do the follow up one as well.

Laura Kalpakian Herman Melville's BENITO CERENO is one of the best stories ever written. His BARTLEBY is a classic too.
and Truman Capote's BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S

The novella is my favorite form. THE JUMPING FROG is suitable for Middle grades too!

Rebecca I second A Month in the Country. Also, if you can find things from a small press, I just read How to Shake the Other Man and thought it was brilliant.

Gerald Miller I see that many people googled "novella" as i did. Were you shocked by some of the titles as I was. Robert Conrads most important book " Heart of Darkness" is considered a novella! Well that's publishing for you.

Laura I have had this novella on my TBR list, and since I got that square as well, I plan to find and read it!
Train Dreams
Train dreams by Denis Johnson

Nicole Harris For some reason I have never read Animal Farm and was surprised to see it show up on a list of novellas. So I will be picking that up for this square.

Kaitlin I read Parnassus on Wheels for my novella. It was a fun fast read about characters that love books. Wasn't the deepest or best thing I ever read but it was a nice way to spead 2-3 hours.
