Hey everyone, this is a way overdue book review and I am sending my apologies to everyone who participated in the book tour and to the authors themselves for my late review. But it’s finally here, hehe, and before I’ll start my review, I have to say that I enjoyed reading these stories very much and I am excited to review this book 😀
I received this book from the lovely Rachel Poli for an honest review and be part of the blog tour. Thank you, Rachel for your kindness and patience and for this lovely book ❤

It’s not quite the Gummi Bears, but it certainly bounces around a lot.
Jozi Flash 2017 combines the talents of ten brilliant authors with one gifted artist, to bring you a collection of 80 flash fiction stories across eight different genres.
From a children’s story about the folly of summoning dragons to the horrors held in deliciously treacherous ice cream, the authors take you on journeys that weave fantasy and folklore together alongside practical detectives and everyday tragedy.
With stunning artwork prompts by Nico Venter, these South African authors have created an anthology that will leave you breathless.
I will not choose a story to review, I will review it as a whole collection 😀 Because each story is a unique story by itself with its own style and genre I want to review this as an entire collection.
Some stories were emotional, while others were fun, cute and even horror. This anthology was beautifully made from the gorgeous cover to the amazing and fun stories. You get immersed immediately into a new world and new characters and you get to read different genres that to my surprise I LOVED IT 😉
The prompts and the illustrations were perfect and everything had a feel of writer’s journal (but in a very good way). Each author did an amazing job with his/her writing, making the short story fly by fast.
Overall, I loved the book, it was short and fun to read and I highly recommend it to everyone who loves to read short stories and fiction. You can even choose the right story for you by your favorite genre or by your current mood.

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤
