Just couldn't keep my attention.

Team Unicorn/Zombie

This book was great. It had stories ranging from down-right-pee-your-pants thrillers to hilarious stories that you did not want to end! My favorite was how to care for your killer baby unicorn and the one about the babysitter.


This was extremely funny. I would recommend it if you needed a good laugh.

A great collection!

This collection of short stories by extremely talented authors is both hilarious and somber. The book includes stories about unicorns, stories about zombies, and the witty banter of Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier as they discuss the pros and cons of the two "species".

My personal favorites stories were those by Meg Cabot, Cassandra Clare, and Alaya Dawn Johnson, but they were all fun to read, whether they were meant to be funny or thought-provoking.
