    Creepy Middle Grade Fun!

    I enjoyed this middle-grade book quite a lot. After finishing The Winter of the Witch, I was in a bit of book hangover so I decided to see what else Katherine Arden has written because I needed more of her writing just as soon as possible. When I found out that she had recently published a middle-grade novel, I was really quite eager to get my hands on it so I put in a request at my local library and waited for my turn with the book. I am so glad that I decided to check this book out. I liked this book as an adult but I am pretty sure that as a child I would have absolutely loved it. I found this book to be a really quick read, reading it in its entirety on a single morning. I don't think that I put it down even once which says a whole lot about the book. The writing had a really wonderful flow as I would expect from this author. Ollie is a rather spunky girl who has been through a whole lot. When she sees a woman throwing a book into the water, she feels like she needs to save it so she does. Her class takes a field trip to a local farm the next day where she runs into the same woman once again. That is when things really start to get strange. I loved the atmosphere in this story. This is a really spooky story which could at times be rather intense. As the story progressed, we learned more about what Ollie has been through and I fell in love with her character. She really was a very brave girl. Two of her friends are with her and I really liked seeing how they worked together and grew close over the course of the story. I would recommend this book to fans of middle-grade stories. This book featured a wonderful group of characters making their way through a difficult and often spooky situation. I loved how hopeful the book's ending was and enjoyed some of the more touching moments along the way. I definitely plan to read more of this series once it is available.

    Scary Escape

    This was a page turner read that was done in one sitting. Great for Teens with a bit of Horror mixed in. Great Halloween/October reading. High school students with ordinary life issues hold hands to battle evil ghosts and scarecrows. "A copy of this book was provided by G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers via NetGalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." READ AFTER DARK WITH THE DOORS LOCKED!

    Creepy and Atmospheric

    I've seen a lot of rave reviews for Katherine Arden's writing, but I'd never read one of her books before reading this one. While I don't read a lot of middle-grade books, I do enjoy the occasional one and this was an excellent choice. Very atmospheric, I could feel the chill in the New England autumn air despite reading this in August in Florida. And there are plenty of creepy goings-on to send chills down a middle-graders' spine. As a mom, I loved the element of a mother's love transcending time. Well done overall, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. My thanks to Netgalley and Penguin for providing a copy for an unbiased review.

    Smal Spaces, Awesome Pages!

    Small spaces was so awesome! It's about three unlikely friends who meet the supernatural, and then have to survive for three days in the " Smiling man's" world. From a ghost surviving in a book, to a strange bus driver, everyone agrees; "Avoid large places at night, stick to small"
