Night of Cake and PuppetsAuthor: Laini Taylor
Publisher: Little Brown Books
Publication Date: November 26, 2013
This novella follows Karou's best friend Zuzana as she tries to win "Violin Boy" Mik's heart with a scavenger hunt and a few magical wishes.
I loved the frantic phone calls between Karous and Zuzana even though Karou wasn't a huge part of the story it was nice to see her small cameos and see how deep the friendship between the two girls runs.
Overall, this is a super cute novella that is very well written (as everything by Laini Taylor usually is) and while it is not necessary to the overall storyline it is one I wouldn't skip. I really enjoyed seeing more of Zuzana and Mik!
Destroy MeAuthor: Tahereh Mafi
Publication Date: October 2, 2012
I read Unravel Me before reading Destroy Me and honestly I feel like the novella didn't add anything more to the story.
Destroy Me is written from Warner's perspective and we get to explore more of his thoughts and feelings regarding both Juliette and his father.
While it was interesting to read something from Warner's POV, he is my favorite character in the series, I didn't feel like I got to know him any better and I don't feel that his thoughts justified his actions in Shatter Me.
Overall, despite being a Warner fan I didn't enjoy this novella, it was simple and at times I felt like I was just re-reading what happened in Shatter me, if you're in doubt I would skip it.
The TransferAuthor: Veronica Roth
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Publication Date: September 3, 2013
I still haven't read Allegiant so please no spoilers in the comments. I'm actually reading these Four novella's from my library so that I can keep putting off reading Allegiant. I know eventually this will stop working but hopefully by that point I'll be ready to tackle the series finale.
The Transfer novella follows Tobias before his choosing ceremony and through his transfer to Dauntless. It was interesting to read something from Four's point of view and to find out more about his life with his abusive father. I also like watching Tobias receive his "Four" nickname.
Overall, I enjoyed this novella and plan on reading the other three in this series. It isn't a necessary read but I like Four enough that reading from his perspective is interesting and I like seeing what Dauntless was like prior to the events in Divergent.
