Two Short Stories #18

Today I will be highlighting two short stories.
One of them is a fun picture book where you can explore New York the other one is a short horror story, inspired by the game "Tag, you're it!"

Let's dive right in.

Title: Wander New York: Fitz in the City
Author: Reese Traves
Pages: 37

Oh yes! This book was such a joy. I'll start with what I liked best: all the facts and info about New York. The book is filled with information and I felt like I was really exploring New York.

I loved the illustrations, I could look at them for quite a while and explore and discover new and fun things.

This book gave me the travel tickles. Especially during this long period of lockdown and not being able to travel afar. I loved exploring and just for a little while feeling like I was in New York.

I did feel like the story itself didn't really add anything for me. I think that was especially ment for younger ones. I just loved looking at the gorgeous illustrations and reading all the information and facts. I did feel like there were some references in the pictures and the info for adults. So the book is for various ages.

I would definitely read more books if this were to become a series. Let's explore!

Title: Tagged
Author: Henry Bassett
Pages: 20

The book was pretty awesome for the 20 pages it has! It has different characters and they all have their different jobs that match their personality. That was really good and well written. 

The office setting, with the creepy, eerie vibe was awesome. I think it was originally done and unique and creative. The story is inspired by playing "Tag, you're it!"

But what I really wanted was an ending... This book was the perfect setting for a great, lovely, gory horror ending and I felt left out, I wanted more!

Both books were fun to read and definitely worth the time.
Did you read any good short stories lately?
