Mini-Review: Of Swine and Roses by Ilona Andrews @ilona_andrews

Hello, fellow bookworms. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Of Swine and Roses by Ilona Andrews. A wonderful young adult short story that can be read as a standalone.

I actually read this short story back in 2015. It was the first thing that I read by Ilona Andrews. I only wrote a few lines but the story stayed with me for years. I think it’s about time it was on my book blog.

Loved this short story!!

It’s quite a talent to get the reader emotionally involved in the characters and believe in a world in so few pages. I was completely drawn in. I’ll definitely be looking out for more stories by this author.

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog -

Great review – I’m not often a fan of short stories but it sounds like this is well worth trying. I have heard great things about the author, so this would be a good way to try her out!
