My Opinion

A must read for those who love creepy, scary stories because sometimes there is no happily ever after. Each short story is guaranteed to cause chills to roll down your spine. An absolutely fabulous collection of short stories! 

The stories that I really enjoyed were:

The Key by Rachel Hawkins- Loved this one, psychic momma and a running daughter, great pair.

The Brothers Piggett by Julie Kagawa- The three little pigs re-told.

Sharper than a Serpent’s Tongue by Christine Johnson- A big sister only trying to do right by her little sister and instead gets wronged.

Beauty and the Chad Sarah Rees Brennan- The beauty pretends to be a guy! Gotta love it!

Sell Out by Jackson Pearce- Will he kiss a dead sleeping beauty?

My Rating 4 stars out of 5 stars

Favorite Quote Blessings. Curses. Who was to say which was which?

Other People Bless my heart but with 17 different stories I am gonna pass on this one. Sorry y’all!
