Zombies Vs. UnicornsZombies Vs. Unicorns by Holly Black
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I hadn’t realized I liked story anthologies so much before discovering this one! I hadn’t read anything by the two editors before I picked it up, but I’d read a few things from some of the contributors- Scott Westerfield and Meg Cabot, mostly. I loved the funny argumentative intros before each one. And I loved that no two stories were alike, and that the tones shifted from serious to the hilarious.

My favorite unicorn story was probably “Princess Prettypants” by Meg Cabot or “The Care and Feeding of Your Baby Killer Unicorn,” and my favorite zombie one was probably “Love Will Tear Us Apart” by Alaya Dawn Johnson. But I liked all of them, for a myriad of different reasons, and couldn’t really put my finger on what I thought was the strongest or the best. Which is the sign of an excellently put-together anthology, I suppose!

As to the big question: am I team zombie or team unicorn?

Uh…I might have to think about this one.
