I liked her 1st book better, but that could simply be because this one gave me nightmares. She hooks you in from the very 1st paragraph. Creepy, spooky…a small town seems to be disintegrating and it seems like Ellerie‘s family is right in the center of it.

I stayed up past my bedtime to finish this book that takes place in an isolated town surrounded by a creepy forest filled with monsters. I kept needing to know what was going to happen.

My April wrap-up. Small Favors, Only a Monster and Lady Rogue were definitely my top 3.
Not my best editing. But this is the most books I've read in one month in years.

A story of what I would call “fae” feeding on the chaos they bring to a small town. It reminded me of the short story “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” - how aliens may have set a few things in motion, but ultimately neighbors turn against neighbors as suspicion/paranoia takes over. Ellerie tries to stay afloat as her small town falls apart from the inside, her family divides, creatures roam the woods, and she falls for a secretive stranger.

StaceGhost I love this book! I was going to say people in her town were awful but they were just manipulated. (her brother was the worst, though) 2mo
BriannaT @StaceGhost I agree, her brother was absolutely terrible! Ellerie was so defensive of him, saying that was a good guy before all the chaos ensued, but we never saw any of it. I‘m not particularly sad about how the book ended in regards to his character. 2mo

This was a really good book. Creepy which I wasn‘t expecting at this level. Like I legit didn‘t read it at night near an open window 😆. Left with a tad bit of a book hangover.

Doing a lot of yard work today but took a little break to do my January Wrap Up. I read a total of 5 books & am halfway through Small Favors. My favorite from this stack would have to be Seven Sins of Snow! February I doubt I'll get much reading done because you know "Adulting". It's my birthday month & we also will be doing a lot of remodeling to our house & yard this month I hope. But my goal is to read at least 3 books including my Buddy Read?

PSA… this book is seriously creepy, a horror filled version of the movie the village. I am so glad it‘s morning while I‘m reading this. There‘s still a very good chance of nightmares. 😨😬😟

Just like with her previous book, Craig‘s writing is beautiful and the atmosphere she creates is delightful. While I liked the American gothic feel of the story, it wasn‘t creative or unique enough to really hook me. The “twist” was obvious from the beginning, and the ending was predictable.

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 340.

I loved this book. Erin A. Craig didn‘t disappoint! A House of Salt and Sorrows was great and this one just as great! A strong young female main character doing her best to keep her family together and fed, a mysterious young man from the woods, and a town that slowly turns on each other. It‘s a romance, a horror and even a little fairytale mixed in. It‘s a must read!

My #bookspin for September wasn‘t working for me. About 1/3 in and it feels like an M Night Shyamalan movie- and I‘m decidedly not a fan. Bailing. #unpopularopinion as it has a 100% rating before me 🤷‍♀️.

Since I got this from a Litsy giveaway I‘d like to pass it along to another US Litten. Is YA horror or thriller your jam? Be the first to comment that you want it and I‘ll send this your way.

TheAromaofBooks That's a shame because the cover is gorgeous!!! 8mo

Underneath all of Small Favors gorgeous writing, there lies a powerful story about what lurks deep within the hearts of humans and what it takes to reveal that. I loved House of Salt and Sorrows, but I truly think Craig outdid herself with this one. There were some fantastic parallels that brought even more depth into the story and it never failed - not even for a second - to fully captivate me.

Writing was so good + hauntingly beautiful. Love the while creepy aesthetic of the book + the bees. Loved the plot + mystery, especially the history + close knit village. Lots or characters so confusing at times until I got comfortable. Liked the drama with each character, the odd happenings in the village with the animals, the massacres in the pines. romance enough for it to be satisfying. Loved the paranormal plot twists. ending was satisfying.

Small Favors is a young adult historical fantasy about a tiny isolated town that finds their citizens in the grip of a series of attacks from monstrous creatures on supply runs, mysterious newcomers, resentments against each other, bad luck and increasing violence. Ellerie Downing is a teenage girl trying to hold her family together town gone mad. It has the right amount of suspense, action, world-building and characterization 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
