How I Came to Read This: I think I saw this in the store, and when I recognized some of the authors, I decided to give it a try.
My Review: This book was so funny! I actually read this sometime last year. There were so many stories that had me laughing out loud. If there's one story, one reason why you must read this book, it's Mr. Bear by Joe R. Lansdale. This one story had me in tears, laughing at it's wit, and dry sense of humor!
I love short story compilations like this because if there's a story you're not enjoying or you just can't get in to, you could always skip it. It's not like a one-story book where you'd have to just give up on the whole thing. But fortunately for us, there aren't any stories in Blood Lite that you'd want to skip over - they're all great!
Who Should Read This: You get a variety of unique paranormal stories by your favorite authors. If this is your genre, this is your book.
