(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I found this collection of short stories to be a really entertaining read. It was interesting to see that all of the short stories were written from the first person perspective, but I didn’t actually get confused with the different POV characters.
There was quite a nice variety of different stories. I liked the fact that all of them were different in some way and there were a few unexpected twists.
I did notice a couple of the stories were vampire-based. Although I do think vampires are really over-used in fiction, they didn’t irritate me so much in these short stories… I think because they weren’t the dark, brooding figures of vampire paranormal romances.
I found the werewolf film to be quite an intriguing story and it was interesting to see that it was linked to one of the later short stories. The one about the bestselling story was quite good as well.
The stories were a bit too short to really get behind the characters, but I still found them really entertaining to read. There were a few original ideas and twists to the stories and I felt they did a good job of holding my attention and keeping me engaged. The author kindly sent me the first book in his fantasy trilogy and I do intend to read that in the next day or so.
