Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire (non-spoiler review)

Book: Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Rating: 3.5 stars


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 the matter.

No matter the cost.


I’d heard a lot about this book. Main point was that it was extremely short. SO since I’m currently taking part in a reathon, I thought what better time to read this book?


I was a bit confused at first, but after the first chapter everything was explained to me. For the length of this story, I’m so amazed that the author fit in such a wonderful plot and all the chracters received really good character development as well. Plus the representation in this book!


There’s just something about this book. Whimsical and captivating. The atmoshpere the author creates is lovely and yet the book is a bit dark and strange as well.


Nancy wasn’t as notable for me, while Kade was a favourite. I absolutely adored Sumi and her personality and the twins were interesting characters to read about as well.
