Prom Dates From Hell - Anthology Review

Title: Prom Nights from Hell
Author: Meg Cabot, Kim Harrison, Michele Jaffe, Stephenie Meyer, Lauren Myracle
Genre: Young Adult
Page Count: 320 Pages
Pub. Date: May 1st 2007 by HarperTeen (first published April 1st 2007)

Rating: 4/5
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 ~

I admit I bought this for the Stephenie Meyer story - eager to eat up anything she writes - but it was a pleasantly fun read. I love it when anthologies expose me to new authors I wouldn't have found otherwise and there were definitely a couple of those in this one. Not a mind blowing read, but fast and enjoyable.

My Rating: 4/5
