There are only 15 weeks left of reading this year!!
I’m a book nerd. That kind of data makes me anxious because I think of all the books I set out to read and sadly my year has been less than stellar. So following The Broke and The Bookish‘s meme to list Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR, I decided to go with short stories. I have NO IDEA what novels I want to squeeze in before the year’s end but I do have an inkling of some short stories that I’ve missed this year and one soon to be released that has caught my eye. I don’t expect to get all ten of these read but I’m hoping for a few. Click on each title for the full synopsis on Goodreads.
Get in Trouble by Kelly Link (Feb. 2015)
There’s Something I Want You To Do by Charles Baxter (Feb. 2015)
Gutshot by Amelia Gray (April 2015)
The Outer Harbour by Wayde Compton (May 2015)
Music For Wartime by Rebecca Makkai (June 2015)
Lovers on All Saints’ Day by Juan Gabriel Vásquez (July 2015)
Let Me Tell You by Shirley Jackson (Aug. 2015)
Barbara The Slut and Other People by Lauren Holmes (Aug. 2015)
A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin (Aug. 2015)
Mothers, Tell Your Daughters by Bonnie Jo Campbell (Oct. 2015)
All of these authors are new to me, except for Shirley Jackson, so I am excited to finally read some of their work.
Any other short story collections from 2015 I might have missed that you recommend?
