My Review: These books are just fun. I got ARC's of the first two OMG Shakespearebooks and they were just great. Then I got these two and again, the books were great.

I'm not a big fan of Shakespeare, mostly since I had a hard enough time trying to figure out what was going on. Then I got these books, and the texting and emojies, really helped. I was able to pick up what was going on, understand it and not sit there looking lost a lost puppy. The old English was just a pain for me. It took me a few read troughs to get the whole story. But now thats not the issue anymore. These books are great for anyone who loves Shakespeare, has to read it in school, or just can't understand the plays because of the wording.

Macbeth is one of my favorites. A Midsummer Night is a refreshing read. Both books are great, has dream, tragedy, backstabbing, and well everything you expect from Shakespeare. What's even better, is that a Shakespeare's movie will be hitting theaters, so its a great time to get your hands on these books!
