Today’s featured books are novella and short story collections, for those who want to be able to pick something up and get a quick read.
Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances features three novellas from John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle. Don’t be put off by the word “romance” in the title.

Zombies Vs. Unicorns is the brain child of writers Holly Black (Team Unicorn) and Justine Larbalestier (Team Zombie).
