As with any anthology some stories were better than others, but overall it was very much worth reading. ( )

This book was so much fun to read! And, surprisingly, I find myself converted to Team Zombie. ( )

Such a fun read. I didn't like the final story, but the rest were awesome! ( )

This was a nice variety of interesting, thought-provoking stories and odd, twisted, disgusting stories. My favorites were Naomi Novik's "Purity Test," Diama Peterfreund's "The Care and Feeding of Your Baby Unicorn," Cabot's "Princess Prettypants" (much better than it sounds from the title, a regular and satisfying Cabot story,) and Cassandra Clare's "Cold Hands."
All in all, I am definetly team unicorn. This has been a good introduction to new authors, though, and I'll definetly be checking some of them out more thoroughly. ( )

So, look at the dates--I devoured this book. Precisely for the reasons I picked it up in the first place...the fabulous premise, and the spectacular lineup of authors.

I didn't love every story, of course, but I don't think I've ever loved every story in any anthology. I liked them all, though, and I did love some of them. That's a tricky enough task, though, and enough to get it five stars from me.

I especially enjoyed the running debate between editors Holly Black and Justine Larbelestier as they defended their respective teams (Team Unicorn and Team Zombie, respecectively) in the introduction to each story. I think this book must have been as much fun to put together as it was to read. ( )
