Review: Hath No Fury edited by Melanie Meadors

I absolutely loved the idea behind Hath No Fury and the fiction pieces in this anthology were spectacular.

Summary

Hath No Fury contains approximately 20 meaningful stories that defy the stereotypes. In this anthology, readers should expect to find super-smart, purpose-driven, ultra-confident heroines. Here, it’s not the hero who does all the action while the heroine smiles and bats her eyelashes; Hath No Fury’s women are champions, not princesses in distress.

Review

book review Hath No Fury by Melanie MeadorsThis anthology is not only fiction, but also little biographies, creative nonfiction, and short stories. I loved their idea behind this mixture: to present heroines in both real life and imagined – to show us the role models all around us. But unfortunately it lost me a little in the pacing with the varying types of writing -mostly the biographies. I greatly enjoyed the pieces of fiction (even though my interest and enjoyment fluctuated as with most anthologies).

Overall, I loved the idea behind this anthology – heroines who defy stereotypes and embrace their anger/fury/emotions. I think we are too often pigeon holed into various tropes and that is why I picked this anthology up.

You can find Hath No Fury on Amazon(US), and add it to Goodreads.
