Everblossom Review

Summary: An anthology that will quench your thirst for more than the ordinary.

Everblossom is a journey through poems and short stories that may seem ordinary on the surface but dig a little deeper and the world not only shifts. It changes.

From the author who brought you Iwishacana/Acanawishi, she now brings you a dash of everything from dark fantasy to the paranormal to even romance. So prepare yourself to delve into the three stages of the flower from bud to blossom then back to seed, you'll go through them all with a whole new perspective on what it all truly means.



Rating: ♥♥♥♥
Cover: 3/5

Review: Unique. If I had to describe this anthology in one word, I'd say unique. I have never read an anthology before, so this was a nice change from the norm.

Although some poems and short stories were a bit hard to follow, they ended up making sense. The anthology was broken up into three sections (the three stages of a flower) and I found that all the writing following each topic fit perfectly! :D

My two favorites were definitely Crack and A Good Girl.

Crack because at first, I wasn't sure where the story was going but then I read the last paragraph and it all made sense. I really liked this story because it had so much emotion in it but you don't even tap into half of it until you've finished reading it. Really well written.

A Good Girl because everything written in it was so true and I completely agreed! Yet it's not something I've ever really thought about. If I had to choose just one favorite rather than two, this would definitely be my choice.

I also liked Family Reunion because the main character was named Penelope :D haha what other reason do I need? :p

Overall, this anthology was really eccentric and just enjoyable to read :) I sincerely hope it does well. Congratulations Larissa Hinton on a job well done!
