Disclaimer: This e-book was a personal purchase.

I think I have come to the conclusion that short stories just aren’t my thing at all. This is the 2nd book of short stories that I have read and I just cannot get into them. I was hopeful because the descriptions od each short story looked really good and creepy. However the only one I actually liked was the 2nd one. Where is Katie. That was a good one and I really would have liked to see a full length version of just that one.

The other two were just okay. I hate saying that,but I promised myself that I would be totally honest in my review of books.Overall they really didn’t have the horror & creepiness factor that I was really hoping for. That’s why I have to give it 2 stars.The 2nd short story saved it a little bit but not enough for me to really enjoy it.

Maybe someone else will like it. Judging by the stellar reviews I’ve seen,I seem to be the only one who didn’t really enjoy it. Give it a shot if you want to.

I got a few e-galleys from Netgalley and then I purchased a few e-books for myself.I am trying to cut back on some books so that I can catch up on my reading. I’m considerably behind in reading as of right now.
