The great thing about reviewing a book I'm in is that SPRING FEVERS is an antholgy featuring other writers. Talented writers. Some debuting with a brand new byline, while others are seasoned freelance writers. One, Mindy McGinnis, even has a debut novel coming out in 2013.

Relationships are complicated. They are intense, passionate and passionless. They tug at the heart strings or make us want to throw the heart away. Relationships need TLC, and SPRING FEVERS does just that with its variety of wr
A Solid Collection

(Trigger warning for discussions of rape.)

One in a series of seasonally-themed short fiction anthologies, the stories found in Spring Fevers revolve around the idea of spring: "Spring is the time of new beginnings, new life, new love. And fevers can result in pain, unexpected visions, and an appreciation for health and normalcy." Relationships take center stage: from the shy first bloom of new love, with all the exciting possibilities it entails, to love long since withered, le

The short stories in this collection were solid 4s and 5s. I normally don't read short stories, but I picked this one up as quite a few of my friends are in it. And sure, that could taint my rating, but I don't think it has. Their skill and stories surprised me and some of them really stood out and won't soon be forgotten.

I LOVED J. Lea Lopez's story about connecting with someone romantically. It reminded me a lot in the feel and tone to Jennifer Weiner's stories (one of my favourite authors). I

I really enjoyed reading every story in this anthology! Knowing so many of the authors from FTWA, AQC and blogging made it even better. From joyful to shocking, from thought provoking to gasp aloud, these stories were stand outs! Loved it :)

This is a great collection of short stories that left you wanting more each time one finished. Its got intrigue, happiness, humor, sadness, and witty sarcasm. I liked each individual story and got a feel for the different writing styles of each author. Where some stories were light hearted, others were deep. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a short read on a busy day.
