Review:
This was a lovely and properly haunting short story collection.

I really liked that not all of these stories are necessarily about ghosts. Don't get me wrong, sometimes it's an actual ghost, both one chasing you and one hanging in the background, sometimes a character from a book appears to haunt you, sometimes it's a house that has just something weird to it... it's a good mix of the supernatural.

I wouldn't call this collection terrifying (there was perhaps one or two stories that had me on the edge of my seat), but there is an overarching creepy atmosphere that I really like. As with most collections there were some stories I highly enjoyed, such as The Horla and Honeysuckle Cottage, and others I didn't care as much for.

Overall, I felt like this did what it promised and although not everything blew me away, this was enjoyable, entertaining and delivered what it promised: classic ghost stories.
