Cursed

Wickedly Fun Stories

I like short story anthologies, I really do. I also like paranormal and supernatural tales as well. However, these four stories didn't thrill me, nor make me laugh. They were just blah, and you could almost predict how the story was going to turn out from the very beginning. I did read the whole book, but even though it's not advertized as such, it seems to be a collection of shorts that seem more suitable for Middle School aged kids. I guess I’m the type who is more into the wickedly scary kind of stories, rather than the wickedly fun kind of stories. The writing style is good, and the author does have a knack for telling stories, I just didn’t particularly care for the stories that were in this book. I would try something else written by this author to see if her other works were more to my tastes.
