Review #201 // Small Spaces – Katherine Arden


Ollie loves to read books, so much so that when she sees someone about to throw one into a nearby creek, she does what she thinks it right and steals it. Reading the book leads Ollie into the world of the Smiling Man and his deals–but can Ollie and her classmates survive?

Why this book?: I heard about it through a booktube channel (Chelseadolling Reads, I think?), and it sounded like something I’d love. I was a bit iffy, because I wasn’t a fan of Arden’s The Bear and the Nightingale, but I was willing to give her a second chance for some MG spooks.

Review #39 // The Bear and the Nightingale – Katherine Arden

25489134A stranger with odd blue eyes presents Pytor a sapphire necklace as a gift to his youngest daughter, Vasya. Fearing for his daughter, he hides it and watches her grow up to be a wild woman. But as mystical forces threaten her family and village, Vasya is forced to confront the darkness by herself.

Why this book?: I’d read a few reviews that praised this book and compared it to Uprooted. While Uprooted wasn’t my favorite, I wanted to read something just as magical.

I would like to thank the people at Del Rey for allowing me to have an ARC of this book via NetGalley.
