Just a single book this time via NetGalley. I’ve been wavering on this one for a little while; I wasn’t too sure and was teetering on requesting it until it was featured on a blog tour where I was able to get a deeper look into it. The authors sound pretty good and the stories are supposed to be dark. That’s right up my alley. Please I was able to read some excerpts on the blog tour. I’ll take it.
In this anthology, 20 authors explore the dark and hidden meanings behind some of the most beloved Mother Goose nursery rhymes through short story retellings. The dark twists on classic tales range from exploring whether Jack truly fell or if Jill pushed him instead to why Humpty Dumpty, fragile and alone, sat atop so high of a wall. The authors include Nina Berry, Sarwat Chadda, Leigh Fallon, Gretchen McNeil, and Suzanne Young. (goodreads.com)
