Prom Dates from Hell

is a collaboration of 5 authors and their 5 short stories. Meg Cabot, Kim Harrison, Michele Jaffe, Stephenie Meyer, and Lauren Myracle. I am going to review the book as one post but each story will have it's own section.

The Exterminator's Daughter
by Meg Cabot
Okay not something I expect from Meg Cabot. She writes sweet, fun-loving stories, not vampires and murder. Great story, loved the beginning and the ketchup part was definitely my favorite scene!

The Corsage
by Lauren Myracle
Intro she writes is pretty awesome

"Readers, beware! The following story was inspired by "The Monkey's Paw", fist published in 1902 by W.W. Jacobs, which scared the dickens out of me when I was a teenager. Be careful what you wish for, indeed."

Makes me very curious about "The Monkey's Paw" Anyways it was a good story.

Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper
by Kim Harrison
I think this is my favorite out of the stories. There was lots of intrigue. I definitely want to know more about Seth and Barnabas. I wonder if Kim Harrison has anything similar. Will be checking out her books. This one doesn't really have anything to do with prom.

Kiss and Tell
by Michele Jaffe
A very interesting concept. I am really curious about the super woman powers. Quite an action packed story for so small a story. I am really going to have to look up more books by Michele Jaffe and Kim Harrison because I really enjoyed their short stories. I almost should always find a short story of an author's before reading their actual books, just to see if I like their ideas. Next up Stephenie Meyer... Not sure on that one I hated Twilight.

Hell on Earth
by Stephenie Meyer
Now why couldn't Stephenie Meyer write this story out fully instead of stupid Twilight. Interesting story.

All in all these was a great collection of stories.
