Rating reflects overall impressions of the collection, if you want to know my ratings and thoughts on each one.. you can check my status updates :) Lazy? Maybe but I don't have the energy to copy and paste each one (Rated as I went and didn't save anything in Wordpad).

In any anthology, there's a "risk" (for lack of a better term) of some or lots of the stories being duds/stinkers/misses. Especially in ones with different genres, not everyone has the same tastes and while that

Recommends it for: Everyone
First off, I am one of the many authors in this book, so I'm basing my review on everyone else's stuff.

But holy cow! I've read anthologies before, and they're good. Some stories are better than others, and sometimes I don't connect with the writing or the story or whatever. But this collection is dynamic. The paranormal stuff is fascinating, the horror/thriller stuff is chilling, the fantasy stuff is magical, and nearly every story was a home run for me. I think there was two, maybe three storie

I'm a big fan of Young Adult and when I picked this anthology up, I was super-excited. Imagine 40 fantastic YA stories all dealing with life-changing moments. You know, when a person or event changes your view on life forever and you are never the same? Surprisingly, I loved all the stories. That's hard to do nowadays. My favorite one has got to be "More Than A Crush" by Kat Stiles. Superb writing, all around, and highly recommend!

My Rating: 5 stars

As I have a story in this anthology, I would just like to say I am basing my review on the many other shorts that are featured. Many were breath-taking, gripping and full of suspense and intrigue :)

Much better than I thought it would be. Some interesting stories here.

That Moment When… An Anthology of YA Authors is a collection of forty short stories and teasers from a variety of young adult authors. The book is divided into sections: Paranormal and Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction, Dystopian and Post-Apocalyptic, Fantasy, Thriller and Horror, and Speculative. The stories were fascinating—I had a hard time putting the book down—and were good examples of what each author had to offer.

It wasn’t easy to narrow down my favorites out of all the displayed talent. Her

More good stories than poor ones

Almost half of the stories in this anthology are really good. Very few are "poor", (none are really "bad"). Some of the ones I disliked most are stories that get to an interesting part and then, instead of explaining what happens, they say (sometimes in just these words), " To find out what happens, buy the book!" I expect to have some suspense about what happens to the characters after the end of a good short story, but I hate feeling like it cut off in the middl

This collection of over 40 stories has an amazing level of quality, irrespective of the majority of stories being Young Adult (YA). Nearly all of the stories are complete stand-alones, but showcase the author's skill in a manner you immediately want to run out and buy the novel the short story is connected to. Which leads me to my only complaint, about half of the "connected stories" are to be published in first half of 2017 (reading this the first week of 2017) which makes crawling the web to g ...more

There were so many good stories in That Moment When that I have trouble focusing on just one for the purposes of my review. There were several strong characters. I especially enjoyed the myths and world building I encountered in each work. Some plot lines were easier to predict due to the type of story being told. The villains though complex remained overall despicable, and the heroes/heroines struggled with their flaws, but ultimately made the best of very harsh situations. Most ended happily f ...more

It's very hard to review a book of short stories by so many different authors. Some of them were excellent, some of them were ok, and others were terrible. Something that was particularly maddening was the excerpts some authors chose to provide instead of short stories. With one exception, I was very annoyed/angered by the whole presentation of random excerpts of stories. They don't tell a complete story and only exist to try and get you to purchase a novel. I made note of those authors so that ...more

I am leaving this review for the Novella called When I Find you, by Norma Hinkens. I was very impressed with this story. It engaged me from the very beginning and didn't let me free until the last word. At first I wasnt sure what to expect or what actually was going to happen, as i felt surely this must be a full novel. The main character was so strong in the story, that I held my breath, when she held hers. For a Novella, it was packed with intrigue, suspense, mystery, realism and a world with ...more

This book has been my go-to, stuck with my phone and nothing to do book for the past 2 years.

The amount of stories, varying it genre and type, we're perfect 10 minute bites. Some were better than others, some were downright meh, and some convinced me to buy the entire book.

I think it did it's job soundly! And now I need to find another book of short stories for my go-to book...

A Great Sampler of Authors!!

This book is excellent if you are looking for new authors. I found that all of the stories were very good. Of course some were better than others but you got a good sample of YA paranormal, dystopian, science fiction, urban fantasy, horror and others. My favorite was by Jackson Dean Chase , Second Chances. If your looking for new authors this is the book for you.

Really great read. Of course, not all the stories held my interest, but that’s because I don’t read all the genres in there. And that will be the case with anyone. But it’s a great way to discover new authors and get really excited about some new books.
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Host of wonderful reads that gave me a little something different with each new story. I have fun getting to know new authors and spending time with my daughter. We both enjoyed the mix of genres offered and the excitement in not knowing what the read was all about before we began it.

I don't read anthologies usually but this one featured an author I'm beta-reading for so I went for it. I was pleasantly surprised and discovered authors I might check out in the future. I can't say I liked all the short stories but some made me really eager to discover more of their universe. ...more

As usual I got this collection for one or two short stories from authors I love, but I found lots more to go after. There are lots of stories here and quite a few made me want to read more from the authors. A few new favourites!
