Booking Through Thursday is a fun weekly book meme, and this week’s question relates to something I mentioned in one of my booktube videos, so I figured I might as well tackle it here as well!
So, in honor of the shortest month of the year … how do you feel about short stories? Love them? Prefer them to novels?
I love short stories. I used to be against them – I didn’t understand how a writer could possibly tell a story in so short a space, but OH BOY was I wrong! Now it’s one of my preferred mediums. I have a number of short story anthologies in my personal library now! I don’t know if I’d say I prefer them to novels, but now that I see how well a story can be crafted in only a few pages, I sometimes roll my eyes at huge novels where so much of the story seems like it could really benefit from a red pen!
