The Fireman | Joe Hill

Pickpick

I listened to 'Chim Chim Che-ree' through the whole book and read it in one and a half days.
Enjoyed how Hill wrote his female protagonist. "I like the idea of being so big I can easily trample over lesser beings" - about being heavily pregnant. And obsessed with Mary Poppins. Spit spot.

Every Heart a Doorway | Seanan McGuire
Mehso-so

I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. I was intrigued by the initial premise- children and teens who slip through doorways into different worlds and return changed - but then it turned into a murder-mystery. It really seemed to lack anything - heart and depth, perhaps. It didn't feel like it lived up to it's potential.

Started reading the first page while in the bookstore and found myself in tears. I lived my teenage years in the Wheel of Time world.

I tend to read a lot of fantasy, but my reading gets more diverse when I'm working in a library, and here we have one about Syrian refugees travelling to safety. This book really struck me in places, though at times the alternate timelines annoyed me as I wanted to rush through the present timeline

Itchyfeetreader I agree - whilst the modern day story was incredibly sad it was the older one that captivated me 2mo
LacklustreRogue I mean, I wanted to rush through to find out what happens present day- I was more interested in the present day than the past. I think I would appreciate it more on a second read through 2mo

"No one ever catches a rusalka. . We slip though their hands like water". .
The parts of the book about the Night Witches - female pilots bombing Nazis - are definitely my favourite parts
