So excited to have another anthology coming, and now that eARCs are available, I wanted to do the same thing I did with His Hideous Heart and put CWs in my review in spoiler tags. (Assume "Death and/or Murder" for all of the Tragedies.)

I love that this is tackling some lesser-known plays like All's Well That Ends Well, A Winter's Tale, and Coriolanus, but I'd be lying if I wasn't the most hyped for Anna-Marie McLemore's take on A Midsummer Night's Dream! Their writing is so lyrical and I'm super excited to see what they do with the story. Same with Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy's Much Ado About Nothing.

I am actually screaming internally with excitement for this because I love Shakespeare, or at least, the stories (I haven't read too many of his actual works, but I want to!!) This is going to be EVERYTHING.
