Ellinor's Litventures

This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.

#BookADayUK - Day 6: Favourite Book of Short Stories

Dear Life: Stories - Alice Munro A Visit from the Goon Squad - Jennifer Egan

Short stories are not my favourite genre: once I've got used to the characters and the setting the whole story is already over. There are very few exceptions on this. I really enjoyed the book Dear Life by Alice Munro. Of course there were some stories I liked better than others. But in general this book made me enjoy short stories a lot more.

Another exception was A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jenniffer Egan. All of these short stories are somehow interwoven, so this is more like a novel told from various perspectives.
