Hey y’all! Today I have another installment of Will I Continue? I will be talking about Every Heart a Doorway, book one in the Wayward Children’s series, by Seanan McGuire. I read this book for the 24 hour readathon I did last weekend.
There were many things that I enjoyed about this book. The writing was whimsical and engaging. I loved that characters and found that I really got to know some of them and cared deeply for them. I also enjoyed the pacing of the book. I never felt like it was dragging which I appreciated in such a short book.
There were a few things that I disliked. Mostly it was the mystery plot that I disliked. Plus I figured out the mystery pretty early so it really did not hold my attention. I also wanted more from the school setting. I feel like the time that was spent on the mystery could have been spent on building the world more. But there are additional books in the series and I believe the fourth book returns us to the school so there’s that.
So Will I Continue?…… Yes because the companion novel synopsis sound really interesting to me. Plus the characters that they are following were some of the ones that I was attached to. I really wanted to love this series and I do enjoy the writing enough to continue. Maybe on a re-read I will love it more. I do have Down Among the Sticks and Bones on audiobook and will be listening to it soon.
