Best Quick Reads
I dislike novellas. I really do. They sometimes fee like little snacks that just whet the appetite but never really satisfy. It is probably this way for me because I feel like I came into my reading own right around the time when I was branching out into reading fantasy and it was rare to find a fantasy novel, even a standalone, under 500 pages. So i got indoctrinated into enjoying these big meaty books.
But once in awhile I am pleasantly surprised when I read a little quickie that feels complete and fools me into believing I read something longer than it is.
When I came across these two little gems from Ilona Andrews, I was initially reluctant because novellas. But when i finished I was really rather pleased by how full I felt. No little snack there.
