So I was so SO excited to get my hands on this anthology only to find out when I did get it and started to read it that I was only interested to read the stories by Leigh Bardugo, Jennifer E. Smith, and Stephanie Perkins. Oops? So I've been stalling with this one and delaying on reading them all because I just don't care enough? But now I'm kinda irate on myself for that because I actually enjoyed this anthology! Although it did take me more than two months to read it (and review it). I blame you, reading slump (and blogging slump). (And unmet expectations but let's get to that later.)
