Halloween is a non-event at our house so to get into the spirit of things, I decided to read Ghostoria. I loved the vintage twist on the horror genre. The short story format made it quick and easy to read. The horror level was just to my taste, not too graphic, more spooky. My favourites of the twelve stories were Ten Knives and Dressing the Part. I loved the scary factor of Ten Knives, and the swing dance references and psychological creepiness of Dressing the Part. Each of the short stories were engaging enough to leave me wanting more while still wrapping up the story in a satisfying way.
