A list of adult novellas and relatively short YA or middle-grade novels, great for reading when you don’t have a lot of time but want something really good.

I wish I had been better about reviewing last year, because I read some wonderful new-to-me authors! I hope to get around to reviewing some of them this year… which might require a reread.
I hope to read most of these in 2024. Some are ARCs, but others are books I just really wanted to read, but didn’t have access to in 2023. In some cases, I’m on the hold list at the library, so it’s just a question of when my holds come in.
My Bookish Resolutions for 2024: I looked at last year’s resolutions, and I was dismayed at how little I accomplished. One suggestion I have seen in several places is that it works better to set specific, concrete, achievable goals, rather than broad, sweeping resolutions. So I’m incorporating that concept into my resolutions this year. And in another bid to keep myself from feeling overwhelmed, I am limiting myself to five bookish resolutions.
This week’s topic is Most Anticipated Books Releasing in the First Half of 2024.
My Favorite Books of 2023: I had very few 5-star books this year, but quite a few 4.5-star and 4-star books. I limited this list to books I read for the first time this year. I also decided not to base the list entirely on the number of stars I gave each book at the time I read it. Instead, the books on this list are the ones that shine brightest in my memory at the end of the year.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books I Hope Santa Brings Me.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books on My Fall 2023 To-Read List.
