    I was completely enthralled reading this. It felt like a perfect blend of Grimm’s Fairytales and Neil Gaiman stories.

The book might have been written for a middle grade audience, but I absolutely loved it! Witches, magic and scary stories all packed into one little book. I didn’t expect the book to be scary since it was written for a young audience, but even though, the stories that Alex narrated did get the creepy factor across. Alex has a vast imagination and a love for everything horror. You can tell just by reading this book that he has some pretty good ideas for a kid his age. Loved Alex’s character and loved that there was a middle eastern touch with the appearance of Yasmin. I felt exceptionally proud to have understood what Sito and Kusa mihshi were before she got the chance to explain them! Of course I loved Lenore (always consider the animals as my favorite characters) I even liked Natacha! (Just a little bit) The story was really fantastically written. I didn’t feel bored for even a second. The story was creative and very original. There was a modern touch to the story, and I feel like children would really love it. I think everyone should read this. Regardless, how old you are there’s definitely a big chance that you’ll enjoy this! || Blog || Instagram ||

    This was an interesting, quick read! I know it's middle grade, but I really wish it was written as a YA novel so it was scarier. However, I understand it was written for children so it can't be too scary. I also loved that it involved classic Hansel and Gretel vibes! AND there is an amazing cat sidekick whom I loved! A great read overall, and I will be saving this to read to my children someday.

My only complaint is that the ending felt a little rushed and I would love to get to know more about Natacha and the magic apartment but overall it was a great book and I would especially recommend it to younger teenagers and fans of R.L.Stine

    Even though this was much more suited to Middle Grade age readers than the author's Thickety books, because there was no graphic violence, it had other problems. The good parts were very very good, but the dry boring parts were longer than they had to be. It felt almost like filler, which to me makes no sense in MG because younger kids still like books that don't take forever to read.

The boring segment in the beginning worries me a bit because most MG aged readers will drop a book like a hot potato at the breath of a yawn. There was also an eyebrow raising scramble of hard to believe events towards the end to set the conclusion in order. I think Children's authors sometimes forget how savvy younger readers can be, and casually take plot shortcuts that in the end will make the book less successful. I loved the short stories within the main story construct, though. I was approved for an eARC, via Edelweiss, in return for an honest review. I will not be reviewing this title on the blog because it was less than four stars.

    Alex becomes trapped in a magical apartment in his building, and in order to stay alive, he has to tell the witch who captured him a scary story every night. This middle grade retelling of Arabian Nights with a horror twist is appropriate for the target age group, and Alex's short stories will easily capture the attention of many readers.

    Nightbooks follows Alex, a young boy who, while sneaking out of his apartment at night to destroy his books full of scary stories, or his Nightbooks, in his backpack, is enticed by a witch into another apartment, and essentially kidnapped. She tells him that she wants him to tell her a scary story each night and he needs to write new stories all day every day. Alex knows there's a slight difference between story scary and real scary, and is struggling with writer's block since coming into the Nightbooks follows Alex, a young boy who, while sneaking out of his apartment at night to destroy his books full of scary stories, or his Nightbooks, in his backpack, is enticed by a witch into another apartment, and essentially kidnapped. She tells him that she wants him to tell her a scary story each night and he needs to write new stories all day every day. Alex knows there's a slight difference between story scary and real scary, and is struggling with writer's block since coming into the magical apartment. So he decides to read the witch a story from his Nightbooks until he can come up with a way to escape. One morning he meets Yasmin, a girl who has also been kidnapped by the witch, and is in charge of tending to the witch's evil plants. Yasmin is very upfront that she does not want to be friends with Alex, but when he saves her from the witch's wrath, the two decide to come up with a plan to escape.. I loved this book. It was spooky and whimsical, and I don't normally like middle grade books, but this one was beautiful. I found myself unable to put this book down. Also, Alex's stories were great and some were pretty spooky. I'm not sure how this would come across to a child as some of it may be too scary for them, but I certainly enjoyed it. The characters were great. I even came to love Lenore the cat (because every evil witch needs an evil cat). Highly recommend this book for something spooky to read this October!

    It has been a long time since I read a middle book that I enjoyed as much as I enjoyed this book. This book has witches, magic, a wonderful kitty familiar, creepy crawlies, monstrous unicorns, fairy tales, scary stories, friendship, candy houses, it has everything. It gives me Graveyard Book vibes and I love it, I want more middle grade horror novels.

    I liked Alex's individual stories themselves a lot better than the overall story - they were just the right amount of creepy. But his struggles with the writing process were spot on. The overall story was cute and fairytale-esque.

    Gah! J. A. White is definitely one of my absolute favorite middle grade authors. I loved his Thickety series, and Nightbooks did not disappoint either. It's quite a bit different than his other series, but just as deliciously dark. I loved the nods to 1,001 Nights and Hansel and Gretel in this one.

    By now I’m truly convinced that middle grade books are the best. Truth is, I’ve been having a very difficult time finding time to read these days. With so much work to do and classes to attend and things to do around my house, I can hardly find a moment to just sit and read. Let alone motivation. So, I’ll admit I wasn’t very excited to start Nightbooks. But it turns out that this mix of little motivation, low expectations and little time was a good thing in the end.

So, I’ll admit I wasn’t very excited to start Nightbooks. But it turns out that this mix of little motivation, low expectations and little time was a good thing in the end. At least in this case, because I really enjoyed this book. The story is a bit of a Hansel and Gretel modern retelling. Where the main character, creepy-stuff-lover Alex ends up trapped in a witch’s apartment. She forces him to read a scary story each night to please the sentient house, and constantly threatens to get rid of him if he doesn’t comply. But it’s also a bit of a coming of age story (if that exist on middle grade) where the kid also learns to accept himself as he is, strange quirks included. It gave me some Paranorman vibes, which I loved. And it read so easily that I didn’t even realize how fast I made progress. I also found Alex very easy to relate. He’s that kid from school that everyone thinks is weird. His struggles to accept his own peculiarities were either parts amusing and endearing. And the stories he wrote where pretty damn good. My only complaint would probably be the big reveal in the end, which I don’t think was given enough screen time. It felt a little rushed to be honest. Especially with such a short epilogue, I really wish the author had crafted a longer ending. If only to give me the satisfaction of seeing everything come together. Despite that I did truly enjoy this book. Like I said before it was a welcome read among so many obligations and little time. Pure middle grade magic.

    This is my fifth book read by this awesome author. I absolutely adored his first four books, which was the most amazing middle grade series. Which is why I have been dying to read new books by him for ages. I felt sure that I would love this, because his first books were so good, but oh, I'm heartbroken to say that I did not. And this book ended up being pretty disappointing for me. Which makes me so sad. But it simply was not meant to be.

And this book ended up being pretty disappointing for me. Which makes me so sad. But it simply was not meant to be. I have a lot of reasons for why I did not love this book, and I will be sharing all of them. Sadly this review will not be all that positive. Decided on two stars for this book. Also, plus side, I did not hate any of it. But I also sadly didn't love any of it either. I felt that the story was good, that it could have been an amazing tale. Sadly, I was busy being too disappointed by the writing. Which was a bit shocking to me, as I loved his writing in all his previous books. They were also middle grade, but felt like they were written for all ages. This book, though, felt like it was written for really small kids. Which ended up being really disappointing for me. It was not the same type of writing as his first books at all. It's possible that I'm the only one who will notice this, but it was an issue for me. It makes me sad, because I adore this author, and I really wish I could say that I loved this book. But, I will always support him, and I will be reading his next books. Will always love his first series. This book tells the story of twelve year old Alex. He is a pretty normal kid, whom is all kinds of obsessed with scary stories. He also writes his own stories, which I liked a whole bunch. Sadly, he has been kind of bullied because of his love for all things scary. And so this book begins with him waking up in the middle of the night, about to go burn all of his stories in the apartment block basement. But on his way there, the elevator stops on the wrong floor. He steps out of it. Where he ends up being enchanted to enter a room. Which is where this story begins. It features witches and magic, though it takes place in our time. It is a mix of both. Sadly, I didn't find it all that exciting. I liked Alex a lot, but because I had many issues with the writing, I never grew to love him. Also felt like we didn't get to know enough about him at all. Yes, he loves everything scary. But what else? Would have also loved to know more about his family. But anyway. I did think that Alex was an interesting character to read about, just really wishing I had loved him more. Sigh. This was a pretty short book, and took me such a short time to read it all. Which was good, but also bad, because I feel like if it had been longer, more would have been happening. Despite this, though, there are a lot of good moments in this book. Alex has been captured by a witch, and he is forced to read her his stories each night. Though he doesn't mind this at all. Another reason for why I didn't love this book was because the witch was simply not scary at all. Her way of speaking was so odd too, and did not feel real. There were parts of this book that I liked, however. And one part that I loved, the cat. She was adorable to read about, and I loved how she was in the book almost all the time. I also enjoyed that this story focus a lot on books, and new friendships too. The girl, Yasmine, was interesting to get to know too. Nightbooks reminded me a lot of The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls, my favorite middle grade book. Sadly, this wasn't the same. This was much more tame, and not the same type of scary at all. Wishing it had been. I don't think there is that much more I can say about this book. Already written a lot more than I was going to. But oh, I must mention the ending. While I do love a good ending, I felt like this one was too good. And that bothered me. I wish it has been more gruesome, in a way. Like Cavendish was. The other books by J. A., those had horrible endings, and I loved them lots. While this had a good ending, I wish it had been more scary and more brutal, in a way. While not a perfect book, I did enjoy parts of it. But sadly, not most. I do think that a lot of children will love Nightbooks. It's pretty scary at times, even though it wasn't really a story for me. Nightbooks was a book about friendship and staying true to yourself, even when it's scary to do so. Despite not loving this book, I'm so glad that I read it. There were a lot of parts that I liked about it, and I do think that a lot of other people will end up loving it. I'm just a bit sad that I was not one of them. I very much adore this author, though. And his first books will always be my favorite. They are all so good. --- This review was first posted on my blog, Carina's Books, here: http://carinabooks.blogspot.no/2018/0...

    My personal rating is 3 stars, but readers of scary, creepy and gruesome will rate it much higher. The main character of Nightbooks is Alex, lover of monsters, dark magic, and anything terrifying. He records his very creative horror stories in regular black and white composition books until an event pushes him to destroy them. On his way to do just that, he is lured into an apartment in his building and enters a witch’s lair. (Shades of Hansel & Gretel.)

Poor Alex is thrust into a prison with not only Witch Natacha, but her loyal feline familiar Lenore, and fellow captive and apparent slave Yasmin. In order to stay alive and soothe the earthquake-like rumblings of the magical dwelling, Alex must tell Natacha a terrible story each night or face dire consequences. (Yes, 1001 Arabian Nights.) Author J. A. White spins short horror stories within the main book that will send chills up the spine of even the most calloused lovers of the genre and I was very interested in how or if Alex and Yasmin would escape and return to their homes and families. Ultimately, the conclusion had few surprises, but I found myself pleased with how the author wrapped it all up. But this book is truly dark and will be disturbing to many. There isn’t a single instance of profanity or the slightest sexual innuendo or action, but librarians and parents should give serious thought to the age group they are purchasing for. It would not surprise me if professional reviews place it squarely with at least the 12 and up crowd as White’s Thickety series was. And while I am sure that many of my fifth grade library patrons would love this one, I was very uncomfortable with several sections and will stick to recommending it to the junior high librarian.

It has been a while since I have read a middle grade book as deliciously scary as NIGHTBOOKS...maybe since THE NEST by @kennethoppel? I was sucked into Alex's story from page one--really it's amazing how quickly the action starts in this one. Within the first chapter he's imprisoned by a witch, Natacha, and the horror begins. He has a fellow prisoner, Yasmin, but at first she is unwelcoming and rude. The relationship (and eventual friendship) between Alex and Yasmin is believable. Another real strength of this book are the short stories Alex is forced to read to the witch each night--they are twisted and sick (in the best way possible). As a reader, I didn't mind being ripped away from Alex's story to read his short stories at all. Often I find stories within a story to be annoying and a distraction, but not in this case. Finally...that cover! It's gorgeous and represents the book perfectly. Hooray for that! This is a must-buy for all middle grade collections; I highly recommend it!

    A fairly entertaining scary story for middle readers. There are some books for middle readers that are also just as enjoyable for adults, but unfortunately this one doesn't quite achieve that.

The target audience will love it (witches, unicorns, secret doors, crawly monsters, invisible cats, etc), but I don't think it gets my "for all ages" stamp of esteem. I found myself actually enjoying the stories that our protagonist writes more than the overall story. The bunk bed story was especially creepy...

    Alex is sick of being the weird kid who likes creepy scary things so he resolves to turn over a new leaf, but on the way to the basement of his to burn his story notebooks he's tempted into a strange apartment on the fourth floor. Turns out those notebooks could be his salvation. It's an adventure story where brains, skill and courage win out with plot twists you'll never see coming. I'm not too good with scary stuff so this is about my speed and would be good for kids up to age 12.

    This was a cute “scary” book for younger readers. The main character has to write scary stories for a witch, and the stories are interesting while at the same time sounding like a young person wrote them. Pretty impressive. Kids who like fairy tales and stories that are a little dark will like this one!

    “You’re not like everyone else, and there’s nothing you can do about it! We are what we are. These stories, they’re just the real you bubbling to the surface...” Being trapped in a room full of books would be a dream, but not when a witch is the one that traps you there. #MGlit
