Five Nights at Freddy’s: Fazbear Frights #2 by Scott Cawthon (Audiobook linked)
Fazbear Frights is a book series about Five Nights at Freddy’s or FNaF for short. The books have short horror stories linking back to the FNaf restaurant and the chain of murdered kids. At the end of the book, there will also be a mini story that talks about the stitch wraith.
As I learned, you absolutely shouldn’t read this at night because some stories tend to be scary. The book was pretty entertaining overall, but most of the stories ended in cliffhangers.
Black Enough edited by Ibi Zoboi
Powerful, unique, and true. Black Enough is written by many different authors, and edited by National Book Award finalist Ibi Zoboi.
There can’t really be a synopsis about this book, because it comprises of 17 short stories about what it is like being young and black in America. The stories are diverse, powerful, and brutally honest. Some are full of light banter, but others are heavy and emotional. Some of my favourites were Half A Moon by Renée Watson, Warning: Color May Fade by Leah Henderson, The Ingredients by Jason Reynolds, Whoa! by Rita Williams-Garcia, Gravity by Tracey Baptiste and Hackathon Summers by Coe Booth. I found something special in all of the stories, though, and Black Enough was a beautiful read.
Because the stories were short, it was a relatively light read, and I give this book a 9/10. The only thing that slightly bothered me was that after every story, I had to adjust to the next story’s setting and characters faster than I would have to if I were starting a new novel. That can’t really be fixed, but if you have a tendency to dive deep into a story and immerse yourself in it, (like me) you’ll need to take a break between each short story. Nevertheless, I think Black Enough is an important collection of stories that everyone should read.
You’re probably wondering: So, who’s the real author? Well….I don’t really have an answer to that. This novel (or, not really) consists of multiple short stories written by: Julie Murphy, Katie Cotugno, Emery Lord, Nicola Yoon, Ibi Zoboi, Nina LaCour, and so many more fabulous authors! Honestly, I couldn’t find an accurate rating for this, so I used my calculator, and found the average. Literally. So: 4 out of 5. I guess I can’t really summarize this because it contains, like, 50 stories. But all of them are based on two people somehow meeting and falling in love. The End. But it shows a lot of LGBT+ stuff, so yeah. I would say it shows a great variety of……subjects?
I actually loved them despite the shortness of them. Really. You would probably love it too! 🙂
