Pretty Monsters Stories is the first young adult collection from Kelly Link. I had never read anything by her before this collection, but Neil Gaiman mentioned her on his blog and it piqued my interest. I picked up the book to leaf through in a book store and thought it looked like a lot of fun from the few sentences I read.

The stories are all fantasy or paranormal stories about young people. My favorite story "Magic for Beginners" is about a boy and his favorite show The Library, but there was hardly a story in this book that I didn't wish would continue on to be an entire book itself.

I have to find some more of her collections now so that I can officially add her to my favorite authors list. The stories caught my fancy, and I've been thinking about them for days. I really enjoy her imagination and language. I can't wait to find more to read from Kelly Link.
