Review: Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories

Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories
Edited by Stephanie Perkins

Publication Date: May 17, 2016
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin 

In SUMMER DAYS AND SUMMER NIGHTS, twelve of YA's biggest stars contributed short summer related romances to this anthology. Wonderfully edited by Stephanie Perkins; a perfectly fitting end of year read as spring slowly turns into summer. Each author brought their own personality and writing style to their story, however the different tones and moods cohesively merged into a fun and easy reading experience with something to offer all readers. No matter what your interests are- cutesy feel-good love stories, fantasy, LGBTQ relationships, horror, grand romantic gestures, futuristic technology, family drama, or sci-fi- you'll be able to find a chapter in here that you'll enjoy. It also allows for the reader to pick and choose what they want to read and skip the stories that don't interest them. The shortness of the stories compared to most novels was actually beneficial, as the plots had to move forward quickly, without the unnecessary backstories and side stories that are often so tiring in other books. I really loved reading this book because I got to both read stories from some of my favorite authors as well as discover some new ones and I never got bored of a story because they were over so quickly.
