Every Heart a Doorway
Every Heart a Doorway | Seanan McGuire
Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children No Solicitations No Visitors No Quests Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere... else. But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children. Nancy tumbled once, but now she's back. The things she's experienced... they change a person. The children under Miss West's care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world. But Nancy's arrival marks a change at the Home. There's a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it's up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of things. No matter the cost. PRAISE FOR EVERY HEART A DOORWAY "Seanan McGuire has long been one of the smartest writers around, and with this novella we can easily see that her heart is as big as her brain. We know this story isn't true, but it is truth." Charlaine Harris, New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series (TV's True Blood) "Seanan McGuire once again demonstrates her intimate knowledge of the human heart in a powerful fable of loss, yearning and damaged children." Paul Cornell, author of London Falling and Witches of Lychford

This book was honestly fantastic. It‘s a very short read, but what it does in that time is so much fun, and the characters make everything worthwhile. It especially doesn‘t hurt to see Ace rep in the main character, I hope the books I‘m planning on reading next year do it half as well as this one!

Narnia was such a huge part of my childhood so the premise intrigued me. The characters were wonderful on the surface with potential but should have been fleshed out more, which in turn would have eliminated a lot of the circling back over already hashed out ideas. The fantasy worlds were confusing and not well explained even though the subject was discussed on numerous occasions. A quick, easy read. ⭐️⭐️ #seasonalreadingchallenge #groupread

I didn't sink into this as fully as I'd hoped I would, but I loved the premise, and the characters, and the story. Will probably check out more in the series.

monalyisha I‘d say definitely read book 2. It‘s probably my favorite so far (along with the most recent one). If it doesn‘t grab you, then you have my blessing to give up. 😉 1mo

As weirdly wonderful and strangely delightful as I expected, definitely one where I understand the love so many people on the bookish internet have for the series. And how much joy does it give me to see an ace main character who is accepted and allowed to be who she is without anyone present trying to change her. I do wish it were a bit longer so that certain things got more attention, but it does make me more eager to continue the series! 4/5 ⭐️

chaoticgoodhufflepuff I adore this book so much! And the series just gets better and better as you go. The most recent one is my favorite! ❤️ 2mo

A faster read than I expected, and I loved it. There's so much in it for such a small book, and most of the characters are well structured. The settings are beautiful (plus well-done trans and ace rep).

The first novella of the Wayward Children fantasy series, this story was hard to follow at the beginning (as it should be) and left me longing for more by the end (logically). It is the story of Nancy, who is sent to a boarding school to “fix” herself, only to find she is surrounded by kids just like herself, all longing to return to their true homes through their doors. This story is fantastic & I can‘t wait to read the next one in the series.

monalyisha 2 & 4 are my favorites so far! Welcome & have fun! ✨ 3mo

This is definitely not a whimsical read, it‘s quite dark for YA. I found it easy to pinpoint who the murderer was but it was an entertaining read nonetheless. I doubt I will read the sequels as it was all just a bit insubstantial & an inconsistency (to me anyway) near the end marred it. 3⭐️

This is a beautiful book! It focuses on the people who come back from magical adventures, which is a question I‘ve always asked. I loved that the main character is ace and it let me put my finger on why I love Fairyland stories but dislike Alice in Wonderland!

BooknerdsLife Interesting! Have this on my TBR & now I‘m super curious! 4mo
elkeo_TheBookDragon An all-time favorite of mine - and still the best in the series though each follow-up title has it‘s own special character/world. 3mo

This novella is interesting. It‘s very short so don‘t expect major plot or character development but it‘s also part of a series so is really just setting a scene. I didn‘t rabidly love it as people seem to, but it was interesting. It‘s pure fantasy, mixed in with the world as we know it. Reminded me of Mrs Peregrine and those books a bit. My library does not have this labeled as YA which, in my opinion, it clearly is, right?? It has that teen vibe

Lindy This series is shelved in the adult section at my library too. My YA book club has been reading them and we‘ve talked about their crossover adult/YA nature. 5mo

This was alright. Now I'm not going to go join the cult but I'll definitely read the sequel. It's got a weird tone but liked the premise, the representation, the characters and the mystery. I wasn't surprised with who the murderer was though and I'm normally blind to that stuff

lyradora You mean if I had my pick of fantasy or sci fi worlds? Tough choice. For sci fi, I would go with Star Trek, because -- duh -- holodecks. For a fantasy world ... um .... the world of Hilda, from the graphic novels and netflix series. 😊 But that's just my current favorite. 6mo

This one surprised me! I am not a fantasy person, but I‘m trying hard to be. I have read so much about this series that I decided to give it a try. I really enjoyed this and I‘m already falling in love with the “misfit” children at the heart of this world. The story did take a morbid turn that I wasn‘t expecting, but I will definitely continue with the series. Maybe there‘s a fantasy reader inside me...baby steps! 😀 #LitsyAtoZ #TheLetterE

I bought this ebook awhile back when it was $2.99, but haven't read it yet. Then earlier this week SyFy announced that they're making this into a tv show. So I figured I should read it sooner rather than later.
