~ My Thoughts ~ 

It used to be novellas added something to the overall story experience, but sadly, that was not the case here for me. The audio aspect is fine, but the stories felt contrived. Basically, if you've read The Selection Series, you've read these too.

I can appreciate wanting to know more about side characters, however, it's good to remember they were side characters for a reason. Sometimes using the information the author has already provided in the full length books, along with a little imagination is enough.
