I don't really love reading short story collections, they're just not my thing. I borrowed this book from my Little Free Library.

After reading the first seven short stories in this compilation, I stopped. They just weren't what I was expecting. I like horror stories, and I enjoy the short story format, but these just weren't that scary or weird or horrific. They were just OK. I feel bad that I didn't finish the rest of the stories, because there could be a gem in there, but I figured if the first third of the stories weren't that good, what are the chances the rest of them will be great? So I stopped.

Looking for a chill in the summer heat? Pick up this anthology of vacations gone horribly wrong. Think you're safe at home? You are... until the neighbors get back with the most interesting slides. Interested in seeing the Real Mexico or Egypt? Are you really sure? This was a book I picked up on a whim and it gave me the whim-whammies back. I found only one in here I'd read before. A very nice collection!

Couldn't get through the first half of the book. A lot of the authors are British and I sometimes have a hard time reading British authors because I don't know what they're talking about. So, I'll shelf this one and maybe come back to it.

A good collection of scary vacation stories...kind of like tales from the crypt sort of thing. Also turned me on to some good authors that I want to read more of.
