Near the end of last year I started to get into a slight panic that I wouldn’t achieve my Goodreads Reading Challenge for 2016. This thought was even more disappointing because a month previously I had lowered my reading challenge from 75 books to 60. As a result of this, I knew that if I wanted to reach my challenge for the year I would need to find a short story to read.
I usually only read short stories if one has been released by an author I love, or if it goes with a series I’ve enjoyed. Outside of this, I’ve always struggled finding short stories I’m interested in when visiting the bookstore, but shortly after Christmas I made a trip to Waterstones and this book caught my eye. I loved the style of the cover and I loved that fact the book was red, so I just bought it without knowing anything about it.
