My Thoughts...
I always put anthology's on my TBR pile or wishlist but I usually never read them. I find I usually have trouble getting into short stories.  This however was pretty awesome.  I only skipped a few stories and that was only because I hadn't read the series that the stories were apart of. So lets go down the list of stories here.

Giovanni's Farewell by Claudia Gray
    I would love, love, love to read more about Cairo and Ravenna. This was a great story about learning to deal with changes and new powers.

Senic Route - Carrie Ryan
     I haven't read the Dark and Hallow Places yet so I was worried this might be a bit spoilery but it wasn't at all. It was actually a great look at two sisters trying to survive and copy in a crazy world.

Red Run - Kami Garcia
     This was my favorite story in this collection.  I would love to see this get turned into a full length novel. This had the feel of the TV show supernatural and I absolutely LOVED it.

Niederwald - Rachel Vincent
     This was a nice peak into Sabine's head. I adore this series and was so happy to get to look through Sabine's eyes. And I am crossing my fingers that something I hope happens in this series actually does happen.

A Mortal Winter King - Melissa Marr
     I haven't read Darkest Mercy yet so I probably should have skipped this one but it was good even though I haven't read the last book yet. 

Facing Facts - Kelley Armstrong
     I loved getting another look at Chloe and the gang. I loved this series and this totally has me wanting to read The Gathering.

Leaving - Ally Condie
     This was great and again I would love to see this turned into a full length novel because I really want to see where this story would go.

At The Late Night Double Feature - Jessica Verday
     I really liked this one! Yet another one I that I would love to see come out as a full length novel. This was cute, funny, and absolutely wonderful.

Automatic - Rachel Caine
     I love the Morganville Vampires series although I am a book behind right now, but this was a good look at Michael. It was really really good!
