First off, I received this book from the publishing group in exchange for an honest review.

I have never read an anthology before, except in college courses, because I never really thought they would be something of interest to me. I was pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed the stories in this anthology! If you have a check list for paranormal beings, then you can check most of them off here...Vampires ~ check! Werewolves ~ Check! Witches ~ Check! Zomibes ~ Check! and so much more! The variety of authors and stories in this book gives everyone something that they can latch onto and read. Although I wasn't in to each and every story in the book, of the thirteen stories, eleven of them captivated me! I would definitely recommend this book to someone who is into the paranormal genre of literature!

Vampires, witches, and zombies, oh my! And elementals and weres! You name it, this book has it!

I had purchased this book during a sale, because I am familiar with many of the Anchor Group authors. I was ecstatic when my book club chose to read it this month. By this time, I was caught up with even more of the authors than I had been before reading it.

I love reading books by Elizabeth Kirke, Christy Sloat, Stacey Rourke, and Karen Pokras Toz. All four of these ladies have stories featured in here, along with 9 others. Some of the stories provide more insight into characters in the full-length novels, such as the short about Dani and the kids by Elizabeth Kirke. Stacey Rourke's story about Keni was already familiar, as it also appears in one of her novellas. Christy Sloat's short about a vampire is an example of an author showing off a different side of her writing skills. Karen Pokras Toz's Nate Rocks is one of my current favorite middle grade series.

I also really liked Dana Piazzi's "Full Moon Flip Flop" and "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" by Katherine Polillo. I am not usually a fan of short stories, but these kept me plenty entertained.

This book is a fantastic introduction to the authors who make up the Anchor Group. It has something for everyone. Following each story is that author's bio and a listing of their other books, so you can catch up on ones you may have missed before.

I read Paranormal Days Gone Awry by many different authors of the Anchor Group Publishing. I recommend this book! I have read 7 of the 13 authors that wrote these awesome paranormal short stories. I love the way some of them added on to a story about one of the characters in their other books and some of them went in a totally different direction. I also love how the genre of paranormal is intermingled throughout these stories. I was impressed by many of these stories and it makes me want to read more books by these authors!

Paranormal Days Gone Awry was a fun collection of short stories. Each story had a paranormal theme and had some interesting things go wrong. The anthology was interesting and had some amazing authors that I love and it also introduced me to some new authors. I like that the anthology gave the reader a lot of different paranormal creatures and some really crazy things happening. I didn’t love all of the stories in the anthology but I did enjoy reading it.

Paranormal Days Gone Awry
13 short stories from 13 amazing authors

I loved this anthology, it's the perfect way to get to know the writing style of authors you may not have come across before. May be just in time for Halloween, but I would happily read this all year round.

I had read one of the shorts previously, and knew of some of the authors but now I have plenty more books being added to my list to read. Next to Stacey Rourke and Dawn Gray, who I have read before, my new favourite has got to be Elizabeth Kirke.

The first thing you'll do after reading this is to look up at least 2 or 3 of the authors and check out what other books they have released.

Review by: ann wilson on June 07, 2013 :
Let me start off by saying: I love Anthologies! I love reading a compilation of short stories by amazing authors that are either a part of or a spinoff of other stories. Paranormal Days Gone Awry did not leave me disappointed one bit! There are several amazing authors in here, some stories I have heard of, and some I have not, but now I have new books to go check out. Some stories will have you giggling, some will freak you out, others may have you saying “what the heck?!”, but either way, you will be a happy camper.
