Lore: A Book Tour and Giveaway!

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour, for Lore! I am very excited to share with you this book!


REVIEW: I am a HUGE fan of mythology, fairy tales, and the retelling of such. With most anthologies, there will be one or possibly more in the collection that just isn't as great as the others. As much as we as readers say we will not judge each short story on each other, when they are brought together, it's nearly impossible to do so.

In saying that, let me forewarn you that it is VERY hard to review each story based on it's own merits. As a whole, this anthology will satisfy your needs. There were enough stories in this collection to make me feel I did not waste my time, which is always a great fear! (There just is NOT enough time in the world to read everything I want to read.) That is one of, if not the greatest thing about collections. You can pick and choose what you are looking for! If you feel a story is not working for you, don't feel guilty to skip it. Not every book will be amazing, and it's silly to expect an anthology to also be a "one size fits all" situation.

Overall, this book gets 4 stars, when I average my ratings for each short story. That's a pretty solid score!

Don't forget to follow the tour!

  2. I wish that instead of sleeping we could read and it would give the same effect. Then maybe we could read everything we wanted to! Lol! I wish! But anyways this sounds like a great collection and I also really love retellings of old myths and legends! Glad you liked it! :)
