Love Is Hell

Title: Love Is Hell Authors: Melissa Marr, Scott Westerfeld, Justine Larbalestier, Gabrielle Zevin, Laurie Faria Stolarz Publisher: Harperteen Number Of Pages: 263
Summary from back of book: Sure, love is hell. But it's totally worth it. In these supernatural stories by five of today's hottest writers- Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely), Scott Westerfeld (Specials), Justine Larbalestier( Magic Or Madness), Gabrielle Zevin ( Elsewhere), and Laurie Faria Stolarz ( Blue Is For Nightmares)- love may be twisted and turned around, but it's more potent than ever on its quest to conquer all. From two students who let the power of attraction guide them to break the hard-and-fast rules of their world to the girl who falls hard for a good-looking ghost with a score to settle, the clever, quirky characters in this exciting collection will break your heart, then leave you believing in love more than ever.
Review: I absoultley loved this book! Every story was intriguing and very appealing. My personal favorite stories though are Thinner Than Water By: Justine Larbalestier and Fan Fictions By: Gabrielle Zevin. Thinner Than Water is about faeries and is very tragic. Fan Fictions is about a book where the characters come alive and in the end is also kind of tragic. Its weird I seem to like tragic stories... All in all this book was really fantastic!
I recommend this book if you like any of the authors above, love, romance, supernatural, and young adult novels.
