Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s prompt is all about novellas and short stories. I like a good novella, but I don’t think I have read enough to pick my top 10 favourite ones, so instead, I’m going with some of the great short stories I’ve read in the past few year. Though I have to admit it was difficult to choose only 10.
Overall Rating of the Anthology: 3 Stars ★★★☆☆
Best of the Bunch
- Halfway People by Karen Joy Fowler
- Beyond the Naked Eye by Rachel Swirsky
- Good Hunting by Ken Liu
An overall very good collection of fairy tale, with each author adding his or her own unique twist to some well-known and some not very known tales. Read on for a more detailed review of each story.
Overall Rating of the Anthology: 4 Stars
This anthology is all about creatures. The stories were all chosen by Neil Gaiman and we get stories from a variety of different authors from different times. The stories range from creepy to funny to thoughtful.
