I got an advanced reading copy of this book through Book It Forward ARC Tours. This was an excellent anthology with a lot of really great vampire stories. It is young adult, but I would recommend for older young adults because of swearing and sexuality. Most of the stories were more horror/urban fantasy than paranormal romance.

I am going to highlight some of the stories I really enjoyed, and there were a lot of them that I really enjoyed. The first story "Things to Know About Being Dead" by Genevieve Valentine, was hilarious and bittersweet; I really loved it. The title pretty much explains what the story is about. I also loved "Flying" by Delia Sherman, it was a wonderful story about young girl who is a trapeze artist with Leukemia and struggling to find a way to join the circus. "Vampire Weather" by Garth Nix was another highlight; an excellent story about a young man who lives in an almost Amish like society in a world where vampires are everyday occurrences.

Then there was "The List of Definite Ending by Cecil Castelucci" where a vampire finds a more merciful way to take her prey; this was a sweet story and well written. "Sit the Dead" by Jeffrey Ford gives us a gruesome story about recessive genetic vampirism that was interesting and action packed. "Slice of Life" by Lucius Shepard gives a look into the life of a lonely girl who is contemplating becoming a serial killer to free a vampiric friend. "Why Light?" by Tanith Lee was one of the best stories in the anthology, it was a beautiful and touching story about vampires in an arranged marriage.

There were also a number of stories in here that, while not outstanding, were very good and engaging. I have listed the complete set of stories with brief synopsis/thoughts below.

I'm an adult, not a teen, but I love Ellen Datlow's anthologies - she picks kick-butt great stories. And Teeth is no different. Other reviewers have summarized the stories, so I will not, but I'll say that I was never bored, and while I "liked" a few stories I "loved" a few more - there is some great stuff in here. No love of Dracula or Twilight is needed, as in the tradition of great stories, these are about characters and the interesting things that happen to them. I'm just about finished, and I wish there were more left to read.

This eerie collection features nineteen pieces by authors such as Neil Gaiman (THE GRAVEYARD BOOK), Melissa Marr (WICKED LOVELY series), Cassandra Clare (CLOCKWORK ANGEL) and Holly Black (THE CURSE WORKERS and GOOD NEIGHBORS series).

The first story in the anthology is "Things to Know About Being Dead" by Genevieve Valentine. After surviving a car accident, Suyin discovers that she's not quite alive and not quite dead. She has become a jiang-shi, and she must drink blood to experience any kind of life. In this darkly ironic story, Suyin details twenty-three things she learns about life once she's dead.

In "Sunbleached" by Nathan Ballingrud, Joshua finds out the hard way that vampires do exist and that taunting one that has been caught in the sun is not a good idea. Frustrated by his parents' divorce and his mother's new boyfriend, Joshua is looking for a change. But, the change he gets is not necessarily the one he wants.

Cassandra Clare and Holly Black collaborate on the story "The Perfect Dinner Party" to create one of the creepiest vampires in the collection. Their story follows six twisted rules of etiquette for the newly-formed vampire who wants to please his/her master. Readers who enjoy first-person narrators will find this tale an intriguing one!

If you're looking for paranormal romance, avoid this book. However, if you want to read stories that could keep you awake at night, this is a great choice! It is a truly enjoyable romp through the afterlife!

This is a good, thought-provoking read. I was nervous of it when I realised that it is targeted as YA, but it breaks the Twighlight mould and gives a wide range of head fodder. Don't bother buying it for Neil Gaiman's name. The other stories make it a stand-out.

Really well curated collection, while geared toward YA I think the overall tone and writing quality is much more adult (in a good way). Great read for 12 to 100 and definitely motivated me to look into other works by these authors.

Sorry for the pun... couldn't resist! A great collection of vampire stories ranging from creepy to funny. I was also impressed that I hadn't read any of them before which isn't always the case with collections of vampire short stories as I have an entire bookshelf worth. Definitely worth the read.

Some vampires always have sharp, pointy teeth, so it's easy to recognize them. Then there are others that have teeth that don't get sharp or pointy until they are ready to strike, or until something arouses them in some way. They can be quite sneaky. While some are not sun lovers and avoid it at all costs, others adapt very well to various kinds of daylight. Not all vampires run at the sight of a cross nor do they all sleep in caskets. And did you know that just because a vampire bites you, it doesn't necessarily make you its slave? These are just a few little confusions that you might be able to clear up by reading this delicious collection of vampire stories.

Like looking at a piece of crystal, here are all kinds of vampires along with people who find themselves entwined --- willingly or otherwise. TEETH gives us 19 stories in which we meet the sophisticated, worldly vampires, the antique collectors, the reckless teenagers, the circus performers, the novice undead, the cursed, the creepy, the sneaky, the hungry ones, and the tricksters who lure and lie.

In the first story, "Things to Know About Being Dead" by Genevieve Valentine, Suyin is killed in an auto accident when her drunken girlfriend runs into a tree. She is no sooner aware of being dead than she realizes that her body is able to function and that, to all outward appearances, she is, in some form, still alive. After a few frightful days of really feeling awful --- terrible thirst, an inability to sleep, her body going through strange changes --- it is her grandmother who offers her comfort and explains that she has become a jiang-shi. Jiang-shi are vampires, her grandmother says, and now she must drink blood because otherwise her body will decompose.
