Mistletoe Christmas: An Anthology by Eloisa James & More | Book Review

Mistletoe Christmas: An Anthology with stories by Eloisa James, Christi Caldwell, Janna MacGregory and Erica Ridley was the first book to kick off my holiday reading. This anthology features four novellas by some of historical romance’s titans. Seriously though, this was a decent sampler of fully contained stories with new to me authors. While it […]

Life Is Short and Then You Die edited by Kelley Armstrong | Book Review

[book-info] I do usually tend to enjoy short story anthologies and sampling different authors – via completed stories (not samplers, those are the worst).

A Phoenix First Must Burn edited by Patrice Caldwell | Review

I will say that I did feel like this apocalyptic anthology was a bit uneven. There […]

Guys Read: Terrifying Tales edited by Jon Scieszka | Book Review

Guys Read: Terrifying Tales is a part of the Guys Read short story anthologies. These anthologies are aimed at engaging middle grade boys into reading. However, I’ll say that in all honesty girls will like these stories too. I think this is like the second of the series that I’ve read. I find myself looking […]

Summer Days & Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins | Book Review

Another year, another seasonally themed short story anthology edited by Stephanie Perkins. Summer Days & Summer Nights is an anthology of twelve stories containing summer loving, in which some people are having a blast and some people are not. For the most part, I liked this anthology. There were maybe two stories that I wasn’t head […]
