The Merry Spinster
The Merry Spinster Tales of Everyday Horror By Ortberg, Mallory Book - 2018

As a big fan of fairytales and their retellings, I couldn't help but take The Merry Spinster off the shelves. It made a great start with the Little Mermaid retelling, which was very tongue-in-cheek with a darker ending than the original, but petered off for me afterwards.

Other than the Rabbit (a retelling of the Velveteen Rabbit), and the Six Little Coffins, which were delectably haunting, the rest became a bit lyrical and abstract for my taste.

If you're a fan of abstract horror however, this might just be your cup of tea.
