I listened to the audiobook and skipped some of the stories that weren‘t doin it for me. The ones I listened to were predictable yet cute and summery—just what I was looking for. #rbdigital #audiowalking

N.E.W.T.s HP magical readathon-2nd book for class I will "teach" in Hogwarts?Divination-prompt=read a short story or a collection of short stories. I read some of these short stories and they were from ok to so-so. In my opinion the majority were not well integrated, had abrupt endings without much sense. It was like authors were told to write a story in a "rush" or limited time?even when some of them are in our list of good writers. 3⭐️

I didn't read all the stories, so I won't review them all. A couple were great, a couple I couldn't force myself to read, but most were just fine. It was disappointing, actually. On the other hand, I'd never read anything by Colbert or Skovron before & those ended up being my favorites by far. I also found Grossman's surprisingly touching, & the stories by Roth & Perkins were cool too. Otherwise, it was a struggle to pick it up again each time.

As a nerdy project, I gathered all the books I've finished on summer break. A couple of them I started before school let out, but only things I actually finished between the last day of school and today counted. Tomorrow is the beginning of teacher prep week, and I'm going in with 23 books finished over the past two months! Fun! 😊🤓😆

Daisey That‘s fantastic! Wishing you a great start to the school year! 4mo

I find that this short story collection had the same problem that so many of these collections have: some of the stories were amazing, and some of them were not. There were just some authors, plots, and storylines that I enjoyed much more than others. Also, I tend not to be a straight up romance fan. That said, I LOVED Head, Scales Tongue, Tail; Inertia; and The Map of Tiny, Perfect Things; and if romance is your thing definitely give this a try.

Even though I'm already in Fall mode, I'm trying to cram this one in before the actual changeover. It's twelve short stories by a bunch of big names, all with a common theme..... love. I'm about 25% and I like it so far.

GatheringBooks oooh. looks awesome. nice photo!! :) 1y

This might have been a pan if not for the last story by Lev Grossman, which I absolutely loved. The prior winter-themed collection Perkins pulled together was definitely better; the majority of these stories were meh.

This was my most awful read of the year. The stories were boring and pointless. I was really disappointed because I've read the one for Christmas and I enjoyed it but this one wasn't good.

This collection of short stories were just ok. There were three that I liked and could read more but some of the other stories fell flat.

Quick book update. I‘ve gotten a little over halfway through this. Some of the stories I‘ve enjoyed, and some are ok. One I thought was going to be a tearjerker and ended up not being so. Was originally gonna do a chapter a day but lost track. Will probably catch up this week.

Summer Days and Summer Nights is a beautiful collection of twelve gorgeously romantic short stories, by some of the most talented and exciting authors writing today. Collected together by Stephanie Perkins, the editor behind My True Love Gave to Me, this wonderful collection of summer romances will delight all fans.

Gillyreads Love Stephanie Perkins. This was a great anthology 2y

What I really liked about this book is that I was introduced to several authors at once. It wasn‘t all fluffy and cute like I was expecting but nevertheless, it was a really enjoyable read. I especially loved “In Ninety Minutes, Turn North”, “Love Is the Last Resort” and “A Thousand Ways This Could All Go Wrong”. I will definitely check out some authors‘ other books in the future.

I was a Girl Scout as a kid, although we didn't do much scouting that I can recall. It still makes me think of camping though, as does the cover of Summer Days and Summer Nights. Ive always wanted to read that one, despite the lukewarm reviews. Anyone read this book? #camping #sizzlinsummerbooks

DivineDiana No, but I too have fond memories of my Girl Scout camping trips! ⛺️ 2y

I have read the first half of the stories. My favorites so far are The End of Love and The Last Stand At The Cinegore, the second and third stories respectively.
My least favorite so far is Sick Pleasure. I just found the story boring. Beautiful writing, though.

I started reading this anthology yesterday, and I'm already halfway through it! The stories in here have all been great so far, and I love getting to read all the different authors and experience their writing styles. I've definitely added some more books to my TBR because of authors I've experienced for the first time through this book. I highly recommend for a light, enjoyable summer read📚

Eh. I thought it was ok. Some stories were a lot better than others which is bound to happen in a collection like this one. I think it may have been difficult for authors to write condensed pieces because a few stories definitely felt rushed and left me guessing and filling in the blanks. Overall, I thought it was a cute summer read but not one of my favorites .

MrBook Not every book can be a winner 😕. Nice review! 2y

It is officially summer!!! So here is a summer essentials photo for you, complete with the YA anthology SUMMER DAYS & SUMMER NIGHTS.

I love reading short story anthologies in the summer, because I can read a story here and there and pick them up regardless of whether I'm reading another book or not, just for a quick little escape.
