Top Ten Tuesday: Short Stories that Exceed Tall Expectations

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share our favorite short story collections. While I usually prefer reading novels over short stories, I have enjoyed several fantastic collections. Here are a few of my favorites!

Apparently I haven’t read enough short story collections to fill this entire list.. but the ones I have read are excellent!

What are your favorite short story collections? What do you think of the ones I’ve mentioned here? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. I have The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe on my list! I think it’s the only one of his I’ve read. Well, maybe The Raven too…but I think that’s a poem so I’m not sure it counts.

  2. Interresting!
    Ive only read one so far, beyond the gossamer veil. Which wasnt what I had expected, actually 🙈 Id need to find more that id hopefully like.


  3. I included Interpreter of Maladies and almost included Sherlock Holmes. I’m seeing a lot of Faulkner on these lists. I’ve always wanted to read something by him but I’ve been intimidated… short stories might be just the right thing!


  4. I’ve been meaning to read some of these, especially more Poe. I’ll love Sherlock Holmes forever! Another short story collection is The Martian Chronicles, but it’s sometimes considered a novel because they’re in sequence.
