Q&A: Can someone recommend some really good short stories for me to read?

Question by Rockafella5423: Can someone recommend some really good short stories for me to read?
I’m going on a boat trip and I want to print out some really good short stories and turn it into a book. I’m a 13 year old girl and I like classic short stories with an interesting twist. I also like funny short stories.

Can you please give me a list of really good stories that I would probably enjoy.

I like Katherine Mansfield stuff but it might be a bit mature for you…

Have you read any Paul Jennings? I used to love them when I was a kid.

    This is the first book in the series, but its small, and will leave you craving for more!

    i know of a couple of horror books only. there anthology books.but see youd have to order the books to get the stories in them. titles are, Short but Scary Stories To Read At Bedtime,and, The Bait Scary Stories That Will Make You Want To Read More. most the stories are vampire. and im not sure if short but scary would be appropriate for a 13 year old since one story has sex graphic sex in it. you can find them on amazon to buy. The Bait is also on barnesandnoble.com

    Hmm this one definitely isn’t a funny one but The Lottery by…I forgot is a really good one. I’m sure if you type it in Google you’ll find it.

  6. H.P. Lovecraft – The Outsider

  7. voraciousreader says:

    The Black Cat by Edgar Allen Poe

  8. I’m hoping you read over a 13 y/o reading level since I am going to suggest any of Dickens short stories, epically a Christmas Carol even if you know they story reading it is much better
