Today I bought a book from one of my favorite horror author’s, Amy Cross. My kindle is filled with her novels. In spirit of this new Twitter challenge, #DecTheShelves, I’m experimenting, so I got Perfect Little Monsters and Other Stories, which is a short story collection. To be honest, I don’t own much of those. It won’t hurt to give Amy Cross’s a try. I can only imagine what fear I’ll experience. It’s fun scaring myself 🙂

A husband waits until his wife and children are in bed, before inviting a dangerous man into their home…

A girl keeps hold of her mother’s necklace, as bloodied hands try to tear it from her grasp…

A gun jams, even as its intended victim begs the universe to let her die…

Perfect Little Monsters and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by Amy Cross. Some of the stories take place in seemingly ordinary towns, whose inhabitants soon discover something truly shocking lurking beneath the veneer of peace and calm. Others show glimpses of vast, barbaric worlds where deadly forces gather to toy with humanity. All the stories in this collection peel back the face of a nightmare, revealing the horror that awaits. And in every one of the stories, some kind of monster lurks…

Perfect Little Monsters and Other Stories contains the new stories Perfect Little Monsters, I Hate You, Meat, Fifty Fifty and Stay Up Late, as well as a revised version of the previously-released story The Scream. This book contains scenes of violence, as well as strong language.

What are you guys reading? What’s your favorite short story ever written?

Keep smiling,

Yawatta Hosby
