Hi guys! It’s Thursday once again and today we’ll be talking abou three short stories I enjoy. The reason why I’m talking about this one today is because I’ll be starting my new job soon and it’s a full time job, so I may not have as much time to read as I think I will, but we’ll see.
In the case of there not being enough time, I need short stories to get my reading fix and I want to learn to enjoy short stories more. So, here’s three I’ve already read and whose authors I will look into for more short stories.
- The Jewel and Her Lapidary by Fran Wilde. This was an interesting book and the reason why I wanted to read this was because the second story was on NetGalley and I wanted to read it. But, I needed to read the first one in order to understand what is going on. So, I did and I loved it! I just need to get a hold of the second one now.
- Binti by Nnedi Okorafor. This is such a good series and they are super quick reads, which is not a bad thing for this series. It’s a good thing actually as they give you all you need to understand this Afrofuturistic world where Binti is a Himba who leaves Earth, something unheard of.
- Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders by Neil Gaiman. I’m finding out that Neil Gaiman writes a LOT! And he has quite a few short story anthologies so if you love his stories, check out his short stories as well.
So, here are some short stories that I absolutely loved, so I have some authors to check out more as well. What are some of your favourite short stories? What do you look for in a short story? Comment below and let me know!
