Just as good as her first if not better! I hadn't realized how badly I wanted a sequel to her first book until I read this.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC!

Just as good as her first if not better! The setting was bright but the subject matter was delightfully sinister and dark. Twists and turns, really well done!

This book really creeped me out I was surprised. I don’t read that much horror.

This was an absolutely scrumptious read! 4.5 stars.

I purchased this on an overstocked book site primarily based on the beautiful cover and because I recognized the author, so I really had little expectation and knew little about Small Favors before reading it. Let's just say I was quickly emersed in the story. I dug its Wayward Pines vibe; wonderfully unusual and so very clever.

Small Favors is set in the small town of Amity Falls, where the townsfolk are living a secluded yet harmonic life (definite cult-like vibes), that is until strange things start happening (monsters, death, crime, sabotage, odd birth defects in animals), and the town begins to go completely mad. Ellerie Downing, a spirited, self-reliant, and intelligent 18-year-old, finds herself taking care of her family, the farm, the bees, and to her dismay, very, very entwined in the mysterious happenings that are plaguing her small town.

My only critique is the ending... while I enjoyed parts of the ending (all that transpired with Whitaker and Ellerie), I felt like it was rushed, and I still had questions and areas of closure that needed to be had.

“It was a marvel to me, the way these little insects could see the bigger picture and strive for the greater good, forsaking their own needs to protect the hive.”

“There's a power in names, don't you think? Once your name is given away, you can't help but be pulled along by those who have it.”

“Be careful what you say in the dark of the night, Ellerie Downing, lest you promise something you might regret.”
― Erin A. Craig, Small Favors

Now I am really excited to read House of Salt and Sorrows, which has been on my BTR for far too long!
