Head, Scales, Tongue, Tale by Leigh Bardugo – 5 / 5 Fangs
- I loved Leigh's writing in this novella. It was addictive and mesmerizing. The romance was adorable, and I shipped the two characters so hard. I think Leigh nailed it with combining fantasy and romance in a novella.

The End of Love by Nina Lacour – 2 / 5 Fangs
- I thought this story was fun and unique. I loved the diversity of the characters. However, I felt like the romance was rushed. I couldn't feel the romantic connection.

Last Night at the Cinegore by Libba Bray – 4 / 5 Fangs
- This novella was unique, hilarious, and adorable! It was strange, but I liked it that way.

Sick Pleasures: For A and U by Francesca Lia Block – 1.5 / 5 Fangs
- I couldn't connect to the characters, plot, or romance in this story. The writing style made this story hard to follow. I appreciated the realism, but I still didn't enjoy this novella.

In Ninety Minutes, Turn North by Stephanie Perkins – 5 / 5 Fangs
- MY HEART! This novella was so cute and funny. Stephanie exceeded my expectations with this novella. I LOVED IT!

Souvenirs by Tim Federle – 3 / 5 Fangs
- Despite the sadness lingering through out the entire story, I really enjoyed this novella. It was fun, quirky, diverse, and sweet. 

Inertia by Veronica Roth – 2.5 / 5 Fangs
- I liked the idea of this novella, but I felt like the world wasn't explained very well. I was confused through out the entire novella. I really liked the ending, and I would like to see where the story would go from there. 

Love Is The Last Resort by Jon Skovron – 3 / 5 Fangs
- This story was a lot of fun even though it was ridiculous. I had a good time reading this novella. The ending was my favorite ending to any of the stories in this book.

Good Luck and Farewell by Brandy Colbert – 2.5 / Fangs
- I loved the diversity in this book. WE NEED MORE DIVERSE BOOKS. However, other than the diversity factor, nothing really stood out in this story for me. 

Brand New Attraction by Cassandra Clare – 4 / 5 Fangs
- Some of the fantasy aspects felt a little rushed and unexplained in this novella. The romance also felt like insta-love. However, I still really enjoyed this story. I thought the plot was addictive and really interesting. 

A Thousand Ways This Could All Go Wrong by Jennifer E. Smith – 5 / 5 Fangs
- THIS WAS ADORABLE. *squeals for days*

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things by Lev Grossman - 5 / 5 Fangs
- This story was hilarious, unique, well written, romantic, and just all around awesome. I enjoyed everything about this story.
