Loved this collection! I bought a copy because my third cousin, Andrea Bradley, wrote the story about trolls dissatisfied with modern life in Toronto. I loved the story by Dominik Parisien, featuring Catherine Parr Traill, and set in Peterborough. And the one by Kate Story but I won't tell you the spoiler. The "monster" theme means one or two stories are a bit gruesome, but mostly they are fun and imaginative.

This is not my usual genre, but I really enjoyed all of the stories - some were fun and others thought provoking. My 2 favourites were Dominik Parisien’s “Where Roots and Rivers Run as Veins” and “Where the Seas Roll Up Their Thunder” by Kate Story.

I read 12 of the 16 stories in this anthology. I didn't read them in order.

The stories were so CREATIVE! I think I wasn't in the right mindset for those types of stories because every time I finished one, it would leave me confused. Many stories didn't leave a lasting impression on me, I felt like reading through them was going through the motions. I wasn't fully enjoying this book and that it why I brought it back to the library. The stories in this book are WEIRD (in the best way possible!)

ah, perhaps this wasn't the right time for me to read this, perhaps I wasn't as in the mood as I thought I was, but... I mostly felt blah about all of it. I didn't dislike any of the stories, but I wasn't moved to read further either. I wasn't bored reading it, but I wasn't that interested in coming back to it when I wasn't reading it. It was great, though, to read stories set in Canada. I don't read enough of them and it's nice to read about familiar landscapes and places and ~moods.
