    This was definitely not what I was expecting it to be, but it was a fun read! I liked the mystery aspect of it and I enjoyed getting to know the cast of characters and the different worlds they had come from. I did want a little more of a punch with the ending, but it was overall satis...

    Such a charming, lovely book about magic and belonging. I absolutely ADORED the premise, the writing, and the cast of characters. My only real complaint is that I wish it was longer and the mystery aspect was a little more fleshed out. It's a very short book, and there's a lot of great...

    Buddy Read with Cory! Seanan McGuire was able to pack so much representation into 173 pages! How many 1,000+ page fantasy novels have I read with zero representation? This story has an asexual main character and a transsexual main character. The story does a pretty great job at abol...

    the novel has at its center a fascinating idea, one gleaming with potential: a school full of children cast out of their various Narnias, longing to go back (oh and there's a serial killer on the prowl). too bad that potential was squandered on a predictable and often inept narrative, ...

    You?re nobody?s doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you. It seems like I have finally stumbled upon the lives of the Wayward children. The book is underrated as in not many people have read it, but its overrated as in it ge...

    This is easily one of the most intriguing plots I've read in a novel all year. It's like Miss Peregrine and Wicked had a child. I agree that this read a bit briefly and I would have enjoyed more character development and imagery of the setting, but I can't deny that the representat...

    I was enthralled from start to finish by the tone of this story and absolutely loved it! I was hesitant about the premise, I thought I wouldn't enjoy a story about doorways to other worlds but this book pulled me in and said, 'let me prove you wrong!' If you've heard about the repre...

    I love the concept of this book - a boarding school for kids who have made it back from mysterious other worlds, la Narnia - but the execution was awful. It's horribly overwritten, the characters are completely one-dimensional, and the plot is laughably bad. It goes for a magical re...

    the novel has at its center a fascinating idea, one gleaming with potential: a school full of children cast out of their various Narnias, longing to go back (oh and there's a serial killer on the prowl). too bad that potential was squandered on a predictable and often inept narrative, ...

    the novel has at its center a fascinating idea, one gleaming with potential: a school full of children cast out of their various Narnias, longing to go back (oh and there's a serial killer on the prowl). too bad that potential was squandered on a predictable and often inept narrative, ...

    Eleanor West's School for Wayward Children takes in kids who have trouble readjusting to life after being found again. These kid's stories of where they have been are fantastic and hard to believe, leading parents to worry, especially when many of the kids seem depressed to be back. Ki...

    im not sure i understand the massive amounts of hype that surround this book, but i still think its a pretty dang good story regardless. which is surprising, because urban fantasy is soooo not my genre. like, at all. but its the writing and the overall message of the story that real...

    A good enchanting short tale on acceptance and misfits. Hogwarts, Narnia, Middle-Earth, every reader who has tasted speculative fiction will most likely have imagined themselves transported to one, Every Heart A Doorway (EHAD) showed the aftermath of going into these different world...

    You?re nobody?s doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you. It seems like I have finally stumbled upon the lives of the Wayward children. The book is underrated as in not many people have read it, but its overrated as in it ge...

    #1 Every Heart a Doorway ????? #2 Down Among the Sticks and Bones ????? #3 Beneath the Sugar Sky ????? #4 In An Absent Dream ??? I somehow lived a full 25 years of my life without experiencing Seanan McGuire?s writing, and now that I?ve seen how in...

    Re-read 1/19/18: Y?all, this was SO much fun to re-read after knowing the backstory of Jack & Jill that we get in Down Among the Sticks and Bones. I can?t wait to re-read it again sometime after I finish Beneath the Sugar Sky. I just love this universe SO MUCH. Re-read 7/17...

    Buddy Read with Cory! Seanan McGuire was able to pack so much representation into 173 pages! How many 1,000+ page fantasy novels have I read with zero representation? This story has an asexual main character and a transsexual main character. The story does a pretty great job at abol...

    the novel has at its center a fascinating idea, one gleaming with potential: a school full of children cast out of their various Narnias, longing to go back (oh and there's a serial killer on the prowl). too bad that potential was squandered on a predictable and often inept narrative, ...

    Eleanor West's School for Wayward Children takes in kids who have trouble readjusting to life after being found again. These kid's stories of where they have been are fantastic and hard to believe, leading parents to worry, especially when many of the kids seem depressed to be back. Ki...

    im not sure i understand the massive amounts of hype that surround this book, but i still think its a pretty dang good story regardless. which is surprising, because urban fantasy is soooo not my genre. like, at all. but its the writing and the overall message of the story that real...

    A good enchanting short tale on acceptance and misfits. Hogwarts, Narnia, Middle-Earth, every reader who has tasted speculative fiction will most likely have imagined themselves transported to one, Every Heart A Doorway (EHAD) showed the aftermath of going into these different world...

    You?re nobody?s doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you. It seems like I have finally stumbled upon the lives of the Wayward children. The book is underrated as in not many people have read it, but its overrated as in it ge...

    Re-read 1/19/18: Y?all, this was SO much fun to re-read after knowing the backstory of Jack & Jill that we get in Down Among the Sticks and Bones. I can?t wait to re-read it again sometime after I finish Beneath the Sugar Sky. I just love this universe SO MUCH. Re-read 7/17...

    Their love wanted to fix her, and refused to see that she wasn't broken. I think I might have needed to adjust my expectations from novel-goals to novella-goals. I judged this as a book. I did not judge this as a novella. To be fair, I do think this novella could've done with more c...

    *4.5/5 stars We notice the silence of men. We depend upon the silence of women. This book was heart-achingly beautiful. I don't even know how to coherently arrange my thoughts to explain the way this book dragged me in from beginning to end. I adore compact narratives. I think th...

    update: yes hello ignore this old ass cringe af review but i came here to change my rating to 5 stars. upon some self reflection (i literally just gained common fucking sense, woke up one morning and was like wtf dumb bitch this is a 5 star book) i decided to give this book the ratin...

    This is easily one of the most intriguing plots I've read in a novel all year. It's like Miss Peregrine and Wicked had a child. I agree that this read a bit briefly and I would have enjoyed more character development and imagery of the setting, but I can't deny that the representat...

    I was enthralled from start to finish by the tone of this story and absolutely loved it! I was hesitant about the premise, I thought I wouldn't enjoy a story about doorways to other worlds but this book pulled me in and said, 'let me prove you wrong!' If you've heard about the repre...

    This was definitely not what I was expecting it to be, but it was a fun read! I liked the mystery aspect of it and I enjoyed getting to know the cast of characters and the different worlds they had come from. I did want a little more of a punch with the ending, but it was overall satis...

    Such a charming, lovely book about magic and belonging. I absolutely ADORED the premise, the writing, and the cast of characters. My only real complaint is that I wish it was longer and the mystery aspect was a little more fleshed out. It's a very short book, and there's a lot of great...

    So I honestly expected to adore this but...I accidentally did not?? It had a LOT of greatness, though, and magic. My childhood was basically 80% obsession with books were children stumbled into other worlds (and like the remaining 20% was just wondering when I could eat cake) so this k...

    This is hands down my favorite book of all time. I have read it 6 times now and I love it more and more each time. This book is for anyone who has ever felt different and weird. ever felt like they didn't fit in and dreamed of a place that accepted what others denied. "For us, the...

    I cannot remember the last time I read a book in one sitting (given, this is a novella under 200 pages) but the reason I finished so quickly is because I was ADDICTED to reading, it really had nothing to do with the length. I literally picked this book up on a whim because I've been bo...

    Reality is harsh, even more so if you've been one of the numbers of children who went through magical portals to otherworldly lands, like Wonderland, or Narnia. Imagine escaping to a land magical beyond your dreams. "I was looking for a bucket in the cellar of our house, and I found t...
