Week 51 Reviews: Kisses From Hell, Prom Nights From Hell

From Goodreads:
Truly, Madly, Undeadly

This irresistible collection features stories of love amid vampires by five of today's hottest authors—Kristin Cast (Tempted), Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy), Alyson Noël (Evermore), Kelley Armstrong (The Summoning), and Francesca Lia Block (Pretty Dead).

From a fugitive vampire forced to trust a boy who might work for the group bent on destroying her to the legendary romance of two immortals whose love compels them to risk everything, this heart-pounding collection brings new meaning to the words "love you forever." Whether you're into romances that are dark and moody or light and fun, these stories will quench that insatiable thirst for enchanting tales of the beautiful undead.

From Goodreads: 
In this exciting collection, bestselling authors Meg Cabot ("How to Be Popular"), Kim Harrison ("A Fistful of Charms"), Michele Jaffe ("Bad Kitty"), Stephenie Meyer ("Twilight"), and Lauren Myracle ("ttyl") take bad prom nights to a whole new level--a paranormally bad level. Wardrobe malfunctions and two left feet don't hold a candle to discovering your date is the Grim Reaper--and he isn't here to tell you how hot you look.

From angels fighting demons to a creepy take on getting what you wish for, these five stories will entertain better than any DJ in a bad tux. No corsage or limo rental necessary. Just good, scary fun.

My Review:
It was fantastic to read these books! I mean, we get some short stories connected to series that we love, stories that are stand alone's by authors we love, and for some, the start of stories! And yeah, they're just all fantastic, I enjoyed reading each and every one!

So part of the reasons why I read these anthologies, was because a) they were by my favourite authors, and b) because of that, some of them are part of series that I like, or in a case or two, the start of new series! I had to read them!

I know that there's a few adult books of the "From Hell" stories, and yeah. I'll have to check them out, because yeah, these various situations, kisses, prom nights, from hell, yeah, I want to have more situations that are from hell! They'll be hilarious!

And then add in the paranormal aspects? They were just fantastic, from vampires, demons, reapers, and then the romance? And the ages? Yeah, these just all combined to such excellent stories, ones that I enjoyed reading so much!

Loved these books so much, and yeah, must read more!
