Review: The Penguin Book of Vampire Stories

User Review  - Abby Starkel - Goodreads

This book was not for me. I don't particularly like the books that have lots of small stories in them. I did enjoy some of the stories in this book, but, for the most part, I didn't really enjoy the book. It was kind of difficult to understand, and didn't really keep my attention well.
