I have been on a novella binge reading spree this week thanks to Courtney Milan’s total mastery of this abbreviated art form. Prepare for an onslaught of novella and short-story reviews because I am totally smitten with these fast-paced reads.
If you think that novella = bubblegum, all you need to do is read This Wicked Gift to know that is NOT the case. Known for her troubled heroes and heart-wrenching romances, Milan spares no emotion in only 123 pages! Her father’s prolonged illness has left Lavinia Spencer running her family’s small lending library and managing their dwindling income.
