LETTER S:  Short stories are my way out of the reading slump!

Short stories are my way out of the reading slump!

Reading short stories is my favorite when I travel, need to catch up on my Goodreads goals, or get out of a reading slump.

Bookstagram gave me a few good books to start with short stories.

After starting my literature journey, I came across some breath-taking stories sealed in my heart and brain.

Today I am recommending to you four short stories I love –

  1. The tell-tale heart by Edgar Allen Poe is a psychological thriller, dark and intriguing. It is a story that will haunt you for a long time. His writing is chilling, and the aura of mystery and terror created by the author makes it a mind-blowing read.
  2. The Dolls House by Katherine Mansfield is a story about discrimination, casteism, and dreams from the countryside. A beautifully narrated book with a thought-provoking theme. 
  3. Pali by Bhisham Sahni is a story about a young boy who ended up in Pakistan after the partition. The emotional trauma of the parents who adopted him in Pakistan and the parents searching for him in India. The book is a thought-provoking, intriguing, harsh reality that makes you feel the tragedy. The narration is emotional and unbiased. The characters wrote in a way that connects with the readers instantly. Pali is the center of the story, and his irony does not go unnoticed.
  4. The Remains of the Feast by Githa Hariharan is a story about a granddaughter and her grandmother’s relationship. The book is an emotional read about her last days when she tried to break all the rules and stereotypes!
