Small Spaces: pleasant middle grade read

This was a pleasant middle grade read! Though the premise, strange old ghost-like creature controlling scarecrows, seems ordinary, the writing made the book.

The Mercies

This book was everything I wanted and more. With the beautifully rendered prose, the gorgeous scenery, the captivating plot, it is one of the better books I've read this year. The tale starts slow then grows into a tempest, bewitching in all aspects.
