Prom Nights from Hell by Various Authors

In this exciting collection, bestselling authors Meg Cabot (How to Be Popular), Kim Harrison (A Fistful of Charms), Michele Jaffe (Bad Kitty), Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), and Lauren Myracle (ttyl) take bad prom nights to a whole new level—a paranormally bad level. Wardrobe malfunctions and two left feet don't hold a candle to discovering your date is the Grim Reaper—and he isn't here to tell you how hot you look.
From angels fighting demons to a creepy take on getting what you wish for, these five stories will entertain better than any DJ in a bad tux. No corsage or limo rental necessary. Just good, scary fun.

This was an AMAZING Collection of short stories. I love Paranormal Books, and I love how Meg Cabot and Stephenie Meyer (yes, I must confess, the only authors which I've read before out of the authors that wrote the short stories in this book) wrote stories amazingly good!

Meg Cabot NEVER disappoints. I mean, it's got everything a reader could indulge into. Cute Guy, Check. Interesting change to Vampires, Check. A Rockin' Heroine, Double Check. She can make any girl wish that she could trade places. I seriously this would be turned into a book. The Exterminator's Daughter was an amazing change (was "The Exterminator" a movie or something?) and I like the thing with 'Exterminating' Vampires. Kind like Insatiable. Can't wait for the 2nd book!

I've heard of Lauren Myracle's books, but never, unfortunately read them. The Corsage is indeed, really creepy, and amazing. It plays on the saying "be careful what you wish for" cause when the main girl wishes for somethings, it might not turn out to be the way things are planned. The Guy in this story didn't really speak to me actually. Yeah, but really good story, I only got a bit confused in the beginning, but whatever. I caught up a few pages later ;)

Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper was um, a bit confusing. I first didn't get where the Reaper part came in...yeah, but like the others, I caught on. I loved the guy :D. Amazingness. I wish it had continued. I mean, it seemed like a story I would really love to read. Hats off to you, Kim Harrison!

Michelle Jaffe's Kiss and Tell was amazing. For one thing, it was longer (I think) than the others, so I could really understand the characters and plot and stuff. It was fun, really different and the only part I didn't get was WHO Miranda Kiss was. But nevermind me. Loved the Funny bits, (they were hilarious) and it actually seemed like a complete story, like one, although I wish for more, seemed like it was okay if the story never continued and was left where it was.

Lastly, Stephenie Meyer. To tell the truth, I was actually expecting something with Vamps in it, not Angels and Demons, but anyway. Love, Love, LOVED the guy. Maybe almost as much as the guy in Meg Cabot's story. I guess, Fallen Angels seem to be the hottest thing now. Who knows? anyway, love how this story went, I'd much prefer it to Twilight and actually wish she writes a book continuing it. It just seems cool, y'kno? an Angel and Demon falling in love...

Out of all of these, the one I'd have to say was the best would be Michelle Jaffe's story, Kiss and Tell. It went outside the box, using paranormal/supernatural elements much differently than other authors who used Angels, Demons, Vampires, etc. and it was a much 'fuller' story. Loved the other stories though. Can't wait to read Vacations from Hell...should be as good!
