Not gruesome at all fun d action packed
Anthologies are a fun way to get introduced to new authors and to read something new from your favorite ones. This is a fun summer read for young adults - my rating above it the average of the 5 stories. Below are my reviews of each: *** 3 stars for Part of Your World by LA Starkey - interesting premise that reminds me of The Little Mermaid but it's more about the Little Merman :) It seemed a bit rushed in parts, which is why I only gave it 3 stars. **** 4 stars for Glistens by Chess Desalls - when I was reading the story, it reminded me a bit of Harry Potter. I really enjoyed learning what a Glisten is, their magic and felt for Marian as she had to make some tough choices to ensure she did not break her promise to her ward. ** 2 stars to Tethered by Kelly Hall - my least favorite of the 5 stories. It just seemed a bit silly and I skipped a lot of parts because of it. ***** 5 stars to Drops of Sunshine by Tricia Copeland - I really enjoyed reading this one. The characters are well written and very relatable. I would like reading more about Nina and Jacob. ***** 5 stars to Feathers and Fireflies by Melanie Rodriguez - this one was my favorite! I really enjoy Rodriguez' writing and to me, she just keeps getting better. Rory and Lucas are really great characters and I hope that they will get to have their own full length novel or some more short stories depicting their adventures. Follow the fireflies! :)
