    so this is a ghost story about someone who pretty much got fucked over because they saved a book from being thrown into the water. can you imagine being a stack of dead tree and having this much power?? ...

    In fourth grade I sold my soul to the Scholastic Book Club?s Apple paperbacks. There was only one thing in the entire world I ever wanted to read, at that point. Only one thing that could make my little heart go pitter-pat, and that was the comforting presence of ghost stories. This ...

    "Avoid large places. Keep to small." Why haven't I read anything sooner by this incredible author? This book was perfection. It was heartfelt, had great characters and most importantly - was actually spooky! It's the perfect Halloween read, or if you are like me, it's a perfe...

    Actual: 3.5 / 5 This was my first Katherine Arden novel, and it did not disappoint! I love how unique this was and how much I related to Ollie and her love of reading (amongst other things). Reading this made me feel all nostalgic for whatever reason, too ? which was great. Fo...

    About three things I was absolutely positive: First, this is one of the scariest MG novels I've ever read. Second, there is a possibility that this book might not get the same attention as something like City of Ghosts, which is a shame, because while I liked that novel, this one...

    Much better than I thought it would be. Really enjoyed this. It felt like a more developed Goosebumps book with more character development. My full review will be on my booktube channel at http://YouTube.com/peterlikesbooks ...

    It is a confirmed fact that I will read anything Katherine Arden writes. To be honest, I haven?t read a middle grade horror since I was squished into a school bus seat with a tattered copy of Goosebumps in my backpack. It isn?t a genre I had considered revisiting, not for any part...

    3 stars A creepy little book with a strange story. I liked it just fine, but it didn't suck me in at all and I found myself skimming at the end. I thought I would find it scary, but after binging the haunting of hill house all weekend I think the scare-o-meter had zero effec...

    4/5 stars ???? "When the mist rises, and the smiling man comes walking, you must avoid large places at night. Keep to small." Pros: ?As I've said already- this definitely reminded me of Goosebumps, or Are You Afraid Of The Dark? If you've never read a Goosebu...

    So I wanted something to read for Halloween that wasn't blooding or worst and found this had just come out and it looked fun, I went in thinking it would be like The Halloween tree, but found it was pretty creepy mostly because I can't stand scarecrows. But I could see anyone of any ag...

    I am gonna finish this SO soon. So... so soon. Just... not right now. ...

    3.4 stars Great Halloween read but I didn't find it spooky enough. I know it's intended for a younger audience but kid Tinja would have agreed with me ;) ...

    If you like added gifs, you can also check out my review here! =) This is a quick read, and perfect for Halloween because it?s goosebump-inducingly spooky (and incidentally reminds me a lot of Goosebumps). I don?t do well with scary, and I seriously can?t emphasize that enough...

    I don?t think I have ever been recommended an adult fantasy as much as Arden?s The Bear and the Nightingale but in typical Rachel fashion, I jumped on her newest book instead. Small Spaces reminded me why I adore middle grade to this day. It had everything I loved to see: a hear...

    Why, yes, spooky middle-grade is my bread and butter. Added this to the favorites shelf. ...

    Katherine Arden is truly my new queen. Despite reading this on Christmas Eve, this spooky novel is so incredibly atmospheric (which has always been a strength of Arden?s) and it was so easy to slip into the setting of autumnal Vermont, complete with trees thick with burning folia...

    For those of us who grew up in the nineties (#datingmyself), SMALL SPACES is going to feel totally nostalgic for the days when you begged your parents to buy you the newest Goosebumps or Fear Street release, whatever RL Stine was putting out on any given day. This has that small town c...

    7.5 out of 10 Very nice middle-grade story! I loved the writing (Arden knows how to make the words flow), creepy atmosphere, and the pacing. Oh, and the friendship too! Bromance development between the main characters was really great! ...

    "Wherever you go in this big, gorgeous, hideous world, there is a ghost story waiting for you.? Small spaces is Katherine Arden?s first middle grade book, and the first book I?ve read by this author. I am in love with her writing, it's so good! I cannot wait to read Bear and...

    I truly appreciate Katherine Arden so much as a writer. She paints such perfect pictures and makes you feel like you?re right there. I was first introduced to her writing when I read The Bear and the Nightingale, and while these two stories are geared toward different age groups, Ard...

    It's official. Katherine Arden is the queen of writing atmospheric books. Small Spaces is so very different from her beautiful debut, The Bear and The Nightingale, without losing her enchanting writing or taking away from this being a middlegrade novel. I had a friend who said th...

    When the mist rises, and the smiling man comes walking, you must avoid large places at night. Keep to small. Ollie leaves school one day, heading to the creek, when she sees a strange woman crying and preparing to throw a book in the water. As a voracious reader she naturally res...

    Since I absolutely love The Winternight Trilogy, I didn't hesitate when I saw Katherine Arden wrote a middle grade horror novel. This author is amazing and definitely one I will follow in the future. I probably wouldn't have been interested in buying this book if she wasn't the author,...

    I get a little more in-depth with my thoughts here, but basically, this is a wonderfully spooky, atmospheric middle grade that gives you those cozy autumnal feels. ...

    About three things I was absolutely positive: First, this is one of the scariest MG novels I've ever read. Second, there is a possibility that this book might not get the same attention as something like City of Ghosts, which is a shame, because while I liked that novel, this one...

    Much better than I thought it would be. Really enjoyed this. It felt like a more developed Goosebumps book with more character development. My full review will be on my booktube channel at http://YouTube.com/peterlikesbooks ...

    It is a confirmed fact that I will read anything Katherine Arden writes. To be honest, I haven?t read a middle grade horror since I was squished into a school bus seat with a tattered copy of Goosebumps in my backpack. It isn?t a genre I had considered revisiting, not for any part...

    3 stars A creepy little book with a strange story. I liked it just fine, but it didn't suck me in at all and I found myself skimming at the end. I thought I would find it scary, but after binging the haunting of hill house all weekend I think the scare-o-meter had zero effec...

    4/5 stars ???? "When the mist rises, and the smiling man comes walking, you must avoid large places at night. Keep to small." Pros: ?As I've said already- this definitely reminded me of Goosebumps, or Are You Afraid Of The Dark? If you've never read a Goosebu...

    I would read Katherine Arden's shopping list if she published it. ...

    What fun!! Mel ???? ...

    so this is a ghost story about someone who pretty much got fucked over because they saved a book from being thrown into the water. can you imagine being a stack of dead tree and having this much power?? ...

    In fourth grade I sold my soul to the Scholastic Book Club?s Apple paperbacks. There was only one thing in the entire world I ever wanted to read, at that point. Only one thing that could make my little heart go pitter-pat, and that was the comforting presence of ghost stories. This ...

    So I wanted something to read for Halloween that wasn't blooding or worst and found this had just come out and it looked fun, I went in thinking it would be like The Halloween tree, but found it was pretty creepy mostly because I can't stand scarecrows. But I could see anyone of any ag...

    I am gonna finish this SO soon. So... so soon. Just... not right now. ...

    3.4 stars Great Halloween read but I didn't find it spooky enough. I know it's intended for a younger audience but kid Tinja would have agreed with me ;) ...

    If you like added gifs, you can also check out my review here! =) This is a quick read, and perfect for Halloween because it?s goosebump-inducingly spooky (and incidentally reminds me a lot of Goosebumps). I don?t do well with scary, and I seriously can?t emphasize that enough...
