Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Short Stories
Short reaction: Great spicy compilation of three deadly kisses in the world of fantasy

Synopsis

Three tales of supernatural love, each pivoting on a kiss that is no mere kiss, but an action with profound consequences for the kissers’ souls:

Goblin Fruit
In Victorian times, goblin men had only to offer young girls sumptuous fruits to tempt them to sell their souls. But what does it take to tempt today’s savvy girls?

Spicy Little Curses
A demon and the ambassador to Hell tussle over the soul of a beautiful English girl in India. Matters become complicated when she falls in love and decides to test her curse.

Hatchling
Six days before Esme’s fourteenth birthday, her left eye turns from brown to blue. She little suspects what the change heralds, but her small safe life begins to unravel at once. What does the beautiful, fanged man want with her, and how is her fate connected to a mysterious race of demons?

My Review

This was my first encounter with Laini Taylor because of a video recommendation from Katytastic of GR. This book’s one of her all-time favorites and I got intrigued so I got my own copy right away. For your information, Laini Taylor is more popular for her series Daughter of Smoke & Bone which I have yet to read but on my to-be-read list as well:

Since childhood I’ve always enjoyed short stories. It’s good to feel it again at mid 20s hehe! No doubt, it will do me again and again everytime I encounter great short stories in the present generation.

Laini Taylor has done a great job putting these together and writing them in such a clever way your fantasies on the “other world” just gets so wildly although sometimes it feels creepy especially the goblins and their fruits.

I’m sure I can re-read this all over anytime and still enjoy it! 🙂
