Small Favors, by Erin A. Craig

dark emotional mysterious fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


This book was one of my favourite reads of the year. The magical realism and the atmosphere, the story, the buildup, and the overall characters… everything… were just beautiful and perfect. I loved the buildup of the plot and the overall troubles that steadily rose in the book. Whilst this is a very rich story, it is gruesome and sad at times but that only allows it to be more breathable. I loved the writing, it was like honey. The only negative is I wanted more.
