Zombies vs. Unicorns by Holly Black, Justine Larbalestier, and many others

Zombies vs. Unicorns is a delightful book containing a collection of stories written by famed authors about either zombies or unicorns. Each story was unique, and each had a different take on a world containing zombies or unicorns. I loved that the stories never felt redundant. Particularly haunting was “Prom Night,” about teens managing in a zombie world. Overall I loved this book, two thumbs up.

Fear by R.L. Stine

Enter the realm of Fear, an anthology containing 13 short stories filled with horror and suspense. Read about anything from baby sitter eating cannibals to fast paced Japanese mythology set in the 21st century. It’ll appease anyone from sci-fi fans to straight out horror junkies. My favorite thing was the variety!

Chicken Soup for the Dog Lovers Soul by Jack Canfield

This book I love because I LOVE DOG stories.  My favorite one was the one with the old bulldog missing his owner.  That story was sad, but very happy in the end.
