I have received this book as part of a blog tour in exchange of an honest review.
I haven’t read many anthologies so far but the truth is, I have enjoyed all that I have read and Sucker Literature was no different.
While it did take me a little while to get through the first story, I easily read all the others.
I think what I enjoyed the most about the anthology is that there’s something for every type of reader. Do you like paranormal? You will find a few paranormal twists in the book. Is contemporary your favorite? You will find realistic stories in this anthology as well.
All in all, all the stories are well-written, interesting and different. Plus, m ost of the characters are easy to like and relate to.
If you are a Young Adult fan, I think you might enjoy this book.
