Book Review: Vacations from Hell

Vacations from Hell by Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Claudia Gray, Maureen Johnson, and Sarah Mlynowski.

Life's a beach . . . and then you're undead?
In this must-have collection, five of today's hottest writers—Libba Bray (A Great and Terrible Beauty), Cassandra Clare (City of Bones), Claudia Gray (Evernight), Maureen Johnson (13 Little Blue Envelopes), and Sarah Mlynowski (Bras & Broomsticks)—tell supernatural tales of vacations gone awry. Lost luggage is only mildly unpleasant compared to bunking with a witch who holds a grudge. And a sunburn might be embarrassing and painful, but it doesn't last as long as a curse. Of course, even in the most hellish of situations, love can thrive. . . .  From light and funny to dark and creepy, these stories have something for everyone. You definitely won't want to leave this collection at home!

Paranormal vacation stories that range from amusing to terrifyingVacations from Hell is bound to leave you giggling one minute and give you goosebumps the next.  Vacations from Hell is a collection of short stories by five talented paranormal authors.  Whether you are in the mood for a cute YA vampire tale, tropical terror, or a chilling tale of blood and curses Vacations from Hell will satisfy your hunger for the paranormal... in bite size pieces.  A perfect companion for your Summer vacation!

I recommend Vacations from Hell to readers of paranormal, young adult, fantasy, urban fantasy and especially to fans of paranormal short stories.

  1. sounds fantastic - have never heard of it before now

  2. Sounds like a great beach read, although most vacations seem to go awry for me.

  3. I read Prom Nights From Hell and it was a fun "beachy" read, I think this would be another :)
