I'm purposefully putting off the Best. Books. Ever. FICTION post for last as it is taking me a considerable amount of time to even... attempt... to narrow down my list so it is blog-managable. So, sometimes we're in a mood for something fun, creative, thought provoking, but don't have enough time to really get into a novel. Well, here comes your white horse: the short story collection!
As a high school teacher, I find short stories more rewarding to teach on a regular basis as the language and sentence structure is often more purposeful, creative, and all around beautiful. Don't get me wrong, I love novels, but for high schoolers, short stories are my money maker.
There are a few authors that are my personal favorites and then there are the ones I am always drawn to for school, so I decided to share one big list with you today!
