Would be completely terrifying having the big bad wolf trying to kill you from the inside out. The wolf is the beast trapped inside you once you have been bitten and the only hope you, and the people that surround you, of surviving is to try not to lose your mind to the beast. Silverweed is the only solution that has been found to help granny not lose herself completely. But what if granny didn't get her silverweed? I loved all the characters. Scarlett was so annoying though, I just wanted her to hurry up and get killed off, but she did grow on me. She was selfish and controlling at first, but that just seemed to be because she had no control over her own life. Aiden was my absolute favorite and I hope he gets a full length book of his own one day. I had no idea what was going to happen to who next. Great spins. Great characters. It's a short, fast read. Too short, if you ask me. I wanted more. Loved it.(less)

Wanting nothing more than to be rid of him, Anica has now made them attached more than ever. Gone with Jaspers human body, is Anica's magic. With the help of her sister Anica tries to reverse the spell and get her magic powers back. "Funny what becoming a cat could do to a guy's perspective."

Maybe a little to much "young" in the YA genre. Nothing much happens in the book. I really don't understand how, with so many people dying at the school, they still attend classes and worry about dances. I really don't understand Cassie's actions most of the time. At one point I thought there was going to be a love story but that kind of fizzled too. Wasn't even a, "I love you. No we mustn't. No I must have you. Chase me, chase me." Nope. All you get is, "You're my soulmate. We mustn't. Ok then." I heard The Secret Circle: The Captive Part 2 & The Power is a much better read. I ordered it before I even finished this book. I want to know the end of Cassie's story. So, for that, I'll give it 3 stars. It might be cheesy but I like a little cheese every now and again. (less)

Being full of short stories by some of your favorite YA authors its perfect for when you want to have a quick read. I loved the size of the book and the remake of the cover.
SUMMARY/OPINION: The Exterminator's Daughter by Meg Cabot
LENGTH: 51 pages
SHORT SUMMARY: Mary is the "Buffy" vampire slaying type of girl. After her mother was turned into a vampire, Mary has taken on the role she has left behind as the exterminator. She slays vampires. Her father is locked away in his study trying to come up with a cure to vampirism.
Mary is pretty much a loner, but she does have one friend, Lila. When Lila suddenly dumps her boyfriend, which she was crazy about moments ago, and is now in some sort of love trance with this stranger named Sebastian, Mary reads the signs and steps in to save her friend. What she didn't except was for someone to save her, and that someone would be Adam. Mary learns it feels good for someone to have your back, as Adam saves her life yet again from Sebastian Drake, a direct descendant of Dracula himself.
OPINION: Great short story. Loved the characters and the writing. Was left wanting more.
SUMMARY/OPINION: The Corsage by Lauren Myracle
LENGTH: 41 pages
SHORT SUMMARY: Frankie drags her friends, Yun Sun and Will, to a physic in the hopes that Madame Zanzibar will get a reading on how Will and Frankie are meant to be together and this will make him finally ask her to the prom. Frankie is so ready to get out of the friends zone with Will and senses he does too but he just needs a little push.
Madame Z doesn't give the clear cut answers Frankie was hoping for, instead she gives them some cliche lines of wisdom, the type you get in a fortune cookie. Looking around the strange objects on the walls Frankie notices an old corsage. Madame Z is reluctant to talk about the corsage but eventually tells the kids that it will grant three wishes. When Frankie is hell bent on taking the corsage Madame Z just gives her a simple warning, "no good will come of it."
When Frankie makes the first wish, "I wish for the boy I love to ask me to prom," she has no idea how her and her friends life is about to change. After one wish gone bad, then another to try to fix the mistake, Frankie is left with her last wish, a wish no one would want to make.
OPINION: Spooky great little tale. Be careful what you wish for. Reminded me of a really good Twilight Zone episode.
SUMMARY/OPINION: Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper
LENGTH: 63 pages
SHORT SUMMARY: Madison has been forced to go live with her father and forced to go to prom with some jerk her dad has set her up with in this small podunk town. When the mystery guy, Seth, comes in and sweeps Madison off her feet, Madison can't help but gloat as she sees her so called "date", Josh, get a little jealous.
Madison would have never gotten in the car with Seth if she knew what would happen to her. And who she was actually getting in the car with.
Now, dead, Madison is learning there isn't just grim reapers, but many different levels to the reapers. Some good and some horrifying.
OPINION: I thought the story was little too long and it didn't really have an ending. Didn't really seem like it was meant to be a short story. At the end of the book you get a sneak peek at Once Dead, Twice Shy which is the novel about Madison. You get to read about 11 pages and I liked it much better than the short story.

Together they kick a little butt.
Miranda and Sibby confide in one another and Miranda is able to let go of the past a little that has haunted her.
OPINION: I didn't get into this story. There wasn't enough about the boy Miranda liked in it.

It was sharp, witty, and moved at a fast pace. Lucy is a wonderful character you love from the start. She's quirky, funny, kindhearted and always finds a way to get in over her head. The book has the right amount of mystery laced with romance. You feel the burden Lucy does having a gift and not being able to do anything useful with it when a local child goes missing and Lucy is haunted by the fact she can find lost objects, not people or animals. And when she touches a clients hand and images of his lost engagement ring comes flashing in her head of the ring on a skeleton Lucy's world becomes more than complicated. This is a perfect piece of chick lit. that you won't be able to put down.
