This week's book chat, hosted by Sweet Green Tangerine and It's The Journey, is all about short stories. While I normally read full-length novels, once in a while I'll read a short story or novella to mix things up a bit. I feel that reading a good short story is a great way to get out of a reading slump, and is also a refreshing read after finishing a truly epic book or series, like Harry Potter or The Lord of the Rings - during that short time-frame when you feel as if you can never read again, because you want to stay in the worlds you were previously in. Yup, short stories can help you with that.

So this may technically be a poem, but it's a really long one that tells a short story about two sisters, some goblins, and magical fruit. I love it!
Some of my other favorite short stories include:
I also have a huge love for fairy tales, myths, and legends from all over the world. I enjoy reading the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and Charles Perrault, amongst others.
So, have you read any of the short stories I mentioned? Which are your favorites? Feel free to join in and link up with the rest of us HERE.
