Book Review: Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories (that didn't grab my attention)

Summer Days and Summer Nights is a compilation edited by Stephanie Perkins. I quit reading after five stories. Maybe I'm just not in the mood, but none of these stories really grabbed me.

It's not that they were bad, but they just didn't stand out. They didn't make my heart pound. I didn't connect with the characters. I often have difficulty with short stories because it's hard to connect, but I wanted to give these a chance because I really enjoyed (gave it 5 hats!) My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories, also edited by Perkins and written by some of the same authors.

So, like I said, maybe I'm not in the mood. I have too many books I'm looking forward to so I decided to quit on this one.

If you've read this and there is one particular story you think I shouldn't miss, please let me know.

  1. Sorry you didn’t like this one. I’ve been searching for good YA anthologies, so this book was on my radar.

  2. In a funny case of bad timing I just today placed this book onto my summer reading list. So perhaps I should quickly take it off. I tried reading her Christmas Short Story collection a few years ago and couldn't do it either. Students aren't usually crazy for short stories anyway, so I may just skip it.

Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
