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.
Checkout THE JUMPING FROG OF CALAVERAS COUNTY
and Truman Capote's BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
and Henry James THE ASPERN PAPERS

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.
