Weigh in Wednesday (#2)

Weight in Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Epilogue.

Today's topic is:

Today's topic: Novellas Vs. Anthologies

For me personally, short stories are not very satisfying. In all my time, I've read a few good ones (The End of the Game by Julio Cortazar) but the majority either lack action, or are good enough to leave me wanting more, but I don't get more. Make sense? I prefer Novellas because they're just greater in length, thus, greater in all other things. Romance, action, adventure, etc.. That's all there is to it. Well, there is the fact that I love holding a novella and thinking about all that might go on through the story, but I can't do that with Anthologies.

What about YOU? Do you prefer Novellas or Anthologies?

  1. Great answer ~ I don't prefer either of them myself.


    My WIW

    1. Yeah, both just don't capture the important bits, in my opinion.

  2. There are some stories you'd wish they won't get longer than they are, though... Have you read Edgar Alan Poe's short stories? The best horror/thriller I've ever read, I guess. And I'm glad they're no longer than short stories... :)

    1. I haven't read his short stories, but I LOVE his poetry! I just never get the time.

  3. I definitely agree with you! Haven't read The End of the Game, but I'll have to check it out! EAP's short stories are great too...

    1. really? Guess I'll have to check those out then!
