A review by miyothecat
Small Favors, by Erin A. Craig

dark mysterious tense slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


I cannot believe how misogynistic this book was. And it’s written by a woman. Virginity culture? Check. Slut shaming? Check. Women serving men? Check. And for what?? Nothing happened out of it. It didn’t turn out to be a plot point in the book or anything. It was just there for misogyny’s sake. The protagonist was a girl but she carried the weight of the world on her shoulders and let others (as well as herself) humble her. I’m sick and tired of selfless female characters who only exist for others and only gets complete when they have a male love interest. 

The only good thing about this book was the idea of the monsters and the plot twist was way too predictable from page 60 and the last encounter with the monsters turned out to be really cheesy in the last chapters. Disappointed. This book had potential but was wasted in the hands of Erin A. Craig.
