What I Thought:

I'm not even sure where to start with this collection of stories.  I bought it for a number of reasons.  

1. Penny Reid wrote a short story featuring one of the Winston brothers, although other Winston boys make an appearance.  They're bearded hotties she unleashed on the unsuspecting world in Beauty and the Mustache.  I love Penny's stories and knew there was no way I could miss out on reading it.  

2. All proceeds are going to charity, St. Jude's Children Hospital, which I think is amazing. At last count I think they'd raised close to $2,000 and have set a goal of $25,000, which I do hope they meet. Plus as a reader, it makes me feel great about my purchase rather than feeling guilty for spending money on buying more books when I already have so many to read.  I'm helping others so it's all good! :p

3.The anthology features other authors I've read and enjoyed, and still other authors whose books are on my e-readers that I haven't read yet.

The end all be all is that this anthology is fabulous and totally five star worthy.  There isn't a single story in here that I did not enjoy.  I must say for an anthology titled Shiver, I laughed a lot more than I was afraid.  There were even a couple of stories that got me hot and bothered more than anything else.  I read this anthology as fast as I could and forgot to make any notes about what I wanted to talk about.  All I wanted to do was read and enjoy the stories.  Now I've got to summon the energy to go on a massive internet search to write down all the books written by these authors that I haven't read yet, and find a way to insert them into my massive reading list.  

Some of the stories that really stood out for me were, "Bewitched" by Daisy Prescott, "Mystery, Mazto Balls, and Moxie" by Z.B. Heller, "Candy, Dentures, and Way Too Much Spandex" by R.S. Grey, "Peckers" by Liv Morris, "Double Dare" by Penny Reid, "Lights Out" by Jodie Beau, and "Nightmare in Night Court" by N.M. Silber.  

I can honestly say this anthology is one you won't want to miss.  I wish they'd made it available in paperback as well.  All that awesomeness in one place would be a pretty cool sight to behold.  I am so glad this anthology exceeded my expectations.
