- Emmeline – Cat Winters
- Sleepless – Jay Kristoff
- In the Forest Dark and Deep by Carrie Ryan
- Fat Girl With a Knife – Jonathan Maberry
Those were the ultimates for me. I already reviewed Emmeline, so I’ll cut to the others. Sleepless had the most CHILLING reveal. I don’t want to spoil it but it was by far the most suspenseful of the bunch.
In the Forest Dark and Deep left me with a lot of questions. But it was beautifully written and I ended up liking the main character because I feel like maybe she was in control the whole time, a monster rather than a victim. Which is also why I liked Fat Girl With a Knife.
I found that most of the stories made me feel like they weren’t about supernatural monsters so much as they were about how easy it is to become a monster when pushed to the edge.
I highly recommend picking this one up. I won’t share which stories I didn’t much like, because I don’t want to turn anyone off to it. The stories I didn’t enjoy all shared a common similarity and I know that just means they weren’t for me.
