    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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

    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! ...

    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...

    "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...

    Small Space is a spooky, Halloween read that is ensure to delight as well as haunt. ...

    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. ...

    All the stars seriously!!! This is the first time ever I don?t want a story to end. Yes I love a lot of books, but this one is special. I am not sure why I feel this way, but last night I got goosebumps all of my body by just thinking about story. And please note that last night, ...

    Middle grade horror isn't something I usually read, but apparently Katherine Arden has the talent to make every story into something I end up loving. Excellent and genuinely spooky tale with great characters. ...

    I swear to the gods above this better be published in the UK too otherwise I will become a small angry ball of agitation ;-; ...

    Ahoy there me mateys! Ever since I read the bear and the nightingale, I have been in love with this author?s writing. So while waiting for book 3 of that trilogy, I thought I would give her middle-grade novel a whirl because I don?t put age limits on reading. And this was a fun one...

    I picked this up because I have loved the adult fantasy by this author, but I wasn't sure how I would feel about her writing a middle grade book. I'm happy to report that this was an unexpectedly amazing reading experience! I read this in a single sitting and could not put it down. Sma...

    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...

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

    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! ...

    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...

    "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...

    Small Space is a spooky, Halloween read that is ensure to delight as well as haunt. ...

    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. ...

    All the stars seriously!!! This is the first time ever I don?t want a story to end. Yes I love a lot of books, but this one is special. I am not sure why I feel this way, but last night I got goosebumps all of my body by just thinking about story. And please note that last night, ...

    Middle grade horror isn't something I usually read, but apparently Katherine Arden has the talent to make every story into something I end up loving. Excellent and genuinely spooky tale with great characters. ...

    I swear to the gods above this better be published in the UK too otherwise I will become a small angry ball of agitation ;-; ...

    Ahoy there me mateys! Ever since I read the bear and the nightingale, I have been in love with this author?s writing. So while waiting for book 3 of that trilogy, I thought I would give her middle-grade novel a whirl because I don?t put age limits on reading. And this was a fun one...

    I picked this up because I have loved the adult fantasy by this author, but I wasn't sure how I would feel about her writing a middle grade book. I'm happy to report that this was an unexpectedly amazing reading experience! I read this in a single sitting and could not put it down. Sma...

    Can I just say that this is a middle-grade book, but the number of creeps it gave me made me refuse to go to the toilet at 2 AM? ? I don't know if reading this at midnight made that happened or I'm really just a scaredy cat. But holy fuck, this book is really creepy and so so good!!...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Middle grade horror isn't something I usually read, but apparently Katherine Arden has the talent to make every story into something I end up loving. Excellent and genuinely spooky tale with great characters. ...

    Ahoy there me mateys! Ever since I read the bear and the nightingale, I have been in love with this author?s writing. So while waiting for book 3 of that trilogy, I thought I would give her middle-grade novel a whirl because I don?t put age limits on reading. And this was a fun one...

    I picked this up because I have loved the adult fantasy by this author, but I wasn't sure how I would feel about her writing a middle grade book. I'm happy to report that this was an unexpectedly amazing reading experience! I read this in a single sitting and could not put it down. Sma...

    Can I just say that this is a middle-grade book, but the number of creeps it gave me made me refuse to go to the toilet at 2 AM? ? I don't know if reading this at midnight made that happened or I'm really just a scaredy cat. But holy fuck, this book is really creepy and so so good!!...

    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...

    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...

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

    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! ...

    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...

    "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...

    Small Space is a spooky, Halloween read that is ensure to delight as well as haunt. ...

    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. ...

    All the stars seriously!!! This is the first time ever I don?t want a story to end. Yes I love a lot of books, but this one is special. I am not sure why I feel this way, but last night I got goosebumps all of my body by just thinking about story. And please note that last night, ...

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

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

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

    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...

    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...

    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...
