Book Review #82 - Love is Hell by Various Authors

Sure, love is hell. But it,s totally worth it. 

In these supernatural stories by five of today's hottest writers—Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely), Scott Westerfeld (Specials), Justine Larbalestier (Magic or Madness), Gabrielle Zevin (Elsewhere), and Laurie Faria Stolarz (Blue is for Nightmares)—love may be twisted and turned around, but it's more potent than ever on its quest to conquer all. 

From two students who let the power of attraction guide them to break the hard-and-fast rules of their world to the girl who falls hard for a good-looking ghost with a score to settle, the clever, quirky characters in this exciting collection will break your heart, then leave you believing in love more than ever. 

My Review: 3/5 

This book contains five short stories. Sleeping with the Spirit by Laurie Faria Stolarz, Stupid Perfect World by Scott Westerfeld, Thinner than Water by Justine Larbalester, Fan Fictions by Gabrielle Zevin and Love Struck by Melissa Marr. 

This was a library book and I have already returned it as I finished it quite a while ago, and so I have no reference to use for this review. I don't remember what Thinner than Water and Fan Fictions were even about although that I remember liking them.

Sleeping with the Spirit I thought was a bit strange, and could have been explored deeper. 

Stupid Perfect World was my favourite story in the book. I would love to see a novel based on this world. 

Love Struck was my second favourite story, it had the best characters and the storyline had alot of depth for such a short story.
