Social media’s positives and negatives! Book Review: Megan’s Mistake by Susan Willis. #ShortStory

I have read a good few short stories by Author Susan Willis. So when a new one came out, I was quick to download it.

Short stories make good coffee break reads and I like to have a few on my kindle for when I want a quick but full story.


With a group of friends Megan is heading off to Glastonbury. She has a ticket to see Kylie and is beside herself with excitement. Her friends are all commenting online, and she posts a photograph of her ticket. To her cost, Megan faces the perils of social media and realises the big mistake she’s made.
Can her friends rally around to help?

My Thoughts:

This was a nice quick read that I enjoyed while waiting for my dinner to cook.

Although described as a cosy crime read, it also had a very modern fiction feel. The dangers of social media were very obvious much to Megan’s dismay.

I liked the completely modern and relatable feel to this short story. Despite it being short, I got a good feel for Megan’s character and her relationship with her sister.

The crime part of the plot was good as we heard from the criminals point of view too.

I really enjoyed this short read as I have with all the other short stories I have read Susan Willis. So much so, I have just downloaded another of her books.

This short story and 10 Short Reads is available to download from Amazon HERE!

    The more I use social media, the more aware I am of the good and bad sides of it, and it’s scary at times. I’m very curious about this short story. I don’t usually go for them as I love a good old novel with enough room to create a full story, but this one sounds brilliant! Great review xxx

      Thank you Meggy. Since I found this author, I usually go for her short stories when they come out as they are always quick but enjoyable reads.
      Yes social media has so many pluses and major negatives and dangers. We just have to remember the good parts of it and be careful of the bad. Thank you Meggy.

    I like how you got us intrigued with your review without actually giving anything away.
    This sounds like a good, eye opening story.
    I don’t usually read short stories but I do like to enjoy them from time to time.

      Thanks Irena. I had to be careful what I wrote as with short stories I could easily give the whole plot away as a spoiler. The Author has another short story out now so I might get that one too.
