The real world is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.


Just an occasional lurker here.  I won't post much blog content until/unless Booklikes institutes Privacy options.

Reading Progress 53% - Nightfall Gardens

Nightfall Gardens - Allen Houston

I'm really enjoying this.  Unless it tanks I'll probably read the next one in the series.


There are some grisly bits, and it’s definitely spooky, but would be fine for middle grade readers who can tolerate dark tales.  I wouldn’t classify it as firmly middle grade, in spite of the ages of the main characters.  It’s more complex in story and in writing than is typical for middle grade books.  I’d recommend this from older middle grade to young adult readers, and even adult readers who can enjoy stories with young protagonists. 


A dark fantasy, also may appeal to fans of ghost stories, haunted house tales, and dark fairy tales.  This is not a ghost story, but some of those elements are here.
