Notes: Warning for some bullying throughout the book, theft of a book, and the main characters mother has died and she’s dealing with it.

Small Spaces was a delightfully quick book to read, apart from the long fantasies that I’ve been doing here as of late. I flew through it in less than four hours, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kids were a bit, well, juvenile at times, but they are kids so I let it slide. There’s also a bit of questionable bullying towards one particular character, but in the end it turned out all okay anyway.

The story was delightfully creepy at times, though little to pretty much no gore in this book at all, which made me very pleased. I dislike heavy amounts of mindless gore in creepy suspense novels, for obvious reasons. The stickmen and smiling man I was familiar with in regards to mythological stories that I have read over the years, but this was a new twist to it, and I enjoyed every bit of it.

Overall, this was a fun and entertaining read, with the right amount of creepy vibes and dark tones that would make for a great re-read for Halloween, or for those of you who haven’t gotten around to it yet, I highly recommend it for Halloween. You won’t regret it. 4/5 stars!

Until next time,
