And this anthology does not disappoint. There is not a story in here that I didn't completely enjoy when it came to plot, style, and pace. Between creepy witches, absolute psychopaths, and a couple of rage filled zombies (wink, wink) there are characters with an immense amount of substance, which can be so hard to pull off with the genre, but these amazing women pull it off seamlessly while still showing the more terrifying aspects of being a teenager in America.
Congrats on an awesome feat, ladies. And I'm beyond ecstatic to be in an anthology that I just can't wait to read again!
Every story in this collection is so unique and well done that it made me want to have each one as a separate novel because I either wanted to know more or I thought it would make for a great book. Not that the stories weren't great on their own; in fact, they were straight up breathtaking. Some of my absolutely favourites of the nineteen (and the ones I'd definitely reread in the future) are: The Eye by Kara Nelson, The Poison and the Ivy by Jamie Kahn, Angie's Change by Spinster Eskie, The Ballad of Sorrow and Lila by Angela Sylvaine and Whatever Happened to Peyton Rose? by Azzurra Nox. And if I am to shortlist two stories is that are an absolute must-read, they would have to the last two of the ones mentioned, although I really, really loved The Ballad of Sorrow and Lila the most; it was such an incredible story!
My American Nightmare is a perfect October read and came as a refreshing read because usually anthologies are made up of romance stories or stories from a variety of genres. Azzurra Nox has really brought the best of the best together and packed amazing stories in this one collection, which is sure to satisfy any reader. Plus, the whole deal with having women writers on board... More power to women! These stories were really mysterious and sometimes so spooky that the chicken in me had to read them with a light on at night. But that is what horror stories should be like, so they served their purpose.
I would highly recommend this anthology. I loved it to bits and enjoyed reading it.
