A Hard Day’s Night-Searcher

Why I Read It: Because of Sherrilyn Kenyon (I actually only read the short story “A Hard Day’s Night-Searcher”.).

From the Back Cover: Couldn’t find a description.

My Thoughts: Short stories are hit-or-miss with me. I like full-length stories better because the author has more time (and more pages) in order to be more descriptive and to tell a better story. Such is the case with the short story A Hard Day’s Night-Searcher. It just felt rushed (which, considering it was only about 90 pages roughly is understandable). I had a longer post about this that I’d done, but I felt like I’d basically summarized the whole story and don’t want to do that to those who haven’t read the story.

I did want to read the other stories in the anthology, but ended up taking the book back to the library because I just didn’t have the time to read it. I’ll be getting it again sometime so that I can read the others.

I’d say this is an Okay read. Let’s just say it was too short, too rushed and the “ILY” came too soon (but then again, it’s a short story).

  1. Short stories don’t always work for me either because the romance or relationship feel rushed. I have been known to read a single story out of anthology only because its written by an author I like or it received a good review somewhere. Then I either trade it or take it back to the libray with no guilt. I don’t have time to waste.


  2. I’m not much of an anthology reader either, in fact this one I picked up at the book store and, since I had time, sat and read the SK story- just cause I can’t resist the ASH, then put it back LOL! (CHEAPSKATE!)

    I have the Hot Spell Anthology and so far I’ve only read Lora Leigh’s entry into it!


  3. I tried to read one of SK’s books and decided it was not for me. I have a couple more of her books on my TBR list that I plan to try out sometime.

    Not a big short story fan either. I like characters that are really developed and story lines that do not have a bunch of loose ties. Have been reading Glad Tidings by Debbie Macomber – and that is my major gripe with it. Not enough of the story!


  4. There have been only a handful of short stories that I absolutely loved, okay I’m lying there’s only 4 and those are the stories in Simple Gifts, those are some great reads in there, short and sweet, love it!


  5. Zeek ~ I think everyone loves Ash 🙂 Nope, I wasn’t impressed with this story.

    Ames ~ I hadn’t thought about that. Now, I can’t stop thinking about it. Thanks. 🙂

    Jen ~ A friend got me hooked on SK last year. I actually started with Val and Tabitha’s story ~ then friend bought me Fantasy Lover and I had to glom onto the whole series. Had to reread Val & Tabby’s story just because I read it out of order the first time.

    Mailyn ~ Exactly. There’s really not enough time to develop a good story.

    Dylan ~ I can’t really think of a short story that I really “liked”. Some have been okay, but for my money I like the full-length ones.
