For an assignment, I have to read and present on a linked short story collection. By linked short stories, I mean short stories written by one author and which feature recurring settings and/or characters.
We were given a list of potential books we could use, but they are all "grown up" books. I don't want to read about people in their late 20s, 30s or 40s and their relationships or falling apart marriages or about moving to the countryside or getting lost in city or moms/dads getting in touch with their distant adult children. :(
I much, much, much prefer reading Young Adult. I like beautiful stories full of magic and/or adventure and/or mystery.
I'll take grown up books if they have those characteristics.
Examples of some books I enjoyed: Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events, The Night Circus, Brian Jacques' Redwall series, The Mysterious Benedict Society series.
Please share any suggestions on linked short story collections that you think I'd like.
Thank you kindly in advance!
