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.… (mere)

What is it with all the books I read lately feeling like they’re derivative of other books I’ve already read?! Obviously, the old adage of “there are no new stories” (just new twists and interpretations) is absolutely true, but dang the déja vu is getting to me lately! This book brings to mind Ranson’s Rigg’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (swapping “peculiar” children with abilities, for “wayward” children who have travelled to other worlds and come back changed) and Alex E. Harrow’s The Ten Thousand Doors of January (with similar concepts of multiple worlds and magical doors), but McGuire centres the story on a murder mystery. The mystery itself is intriguing, but the main themes of the story really centre around the children (led by protagonist Nancy) trying to come to terms with their re-arrival in the “real” world - or at least it seems that it should be. I honestly found that the mystery took over the whole plot, without actually seeming like it did, and combined with what felt like a rather shallow exploration of the heart worlds that the children have returned from, I didn’t feel like the book ever quite managed to hit the mark. It’s a great concept, but McGuire didn’t take it quite far enough to really get me hooked. I’m going to keep reading the series, since I do enjoy McGuire’s writing and the books are quick reads, and I am hopeful that with further books in the series we get a little bit more depth. ( )

I liked this book, especially the premise itself - that the kids that return from other worlds can't just merge back into our reality. I loved the Trans and Ace representation. Good amount of gruesomeness, but the WHO part of the whodunit was pretty obvious fairly early on to me.

Audiobook notes: oh boy... Cynthia Hopkins did a fine job with the non-dialog, and I actually didn't mind the voices themselves. What I didn't care for was that every word that a character said came out in the exact same speed (slow) with very nearly the exact same tone (drugged/asleep). I don't demand (or really appreciate) overly-dramatic readings, but it should be fairly obvious that when a character is upset and verbally lashing out at somebody that their delivery should be much different than when somebody is explaining the mechanics of the connected worlds or what time a meeting is scheduled for.

A beautifully lyrical little novel, Every Heart a Doorway is an amazing concept. But it left me wanting more; it's almost like a vignette into a short time at the school. I wanted to know more about the worlds, and the compass directions, and how everyone was affected by or chosen by their respective worlds.

I waffled between three and four stars for that reason. I enjoyed reading it and was intrigued, and the mystery was well-done, but overall it was so short it felt a little lacking. ( )

***Read for the magical readathon year 2020 ***
Ancient Runes - Heart Rune: heart on the cover or in the title ★★★☆☆

Jup the writing style still isn't for me. I actually took a star off this time around.

***After reading***
I read this a few days ago and I still don't know what I was expecting and what my feeling actually are. It's not really a happy story. And I didn't like the ending. But it was a good way to end the story.

***Before reading***
I tried to not read/listen to anything about this story. Even if I once read the blurb I've forgotten what is said. The only thing I know is that it is about kids who went somewhere and now have PTSD? I can vaguely remember a question... What happens to the people who came back? *shrugs* it sounded interesting and I thought the last in this series came out so I bought the whole series at once in hardcover (what a pain that was, my country... sjeez, I'm still bitter about Becky Chambers her books). Also they are short and for some reason I have trouble with longer stories now... ( )

Wow! Not what I expected from this book. I was extremely awed and mesmerized by [a:Seanan McGuire|2860219|Seanan McGuire|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1245623198p2/2860219.jpg]'s writing and world building.

The story is dark: There are doorways to "other worlds" and it seems that each doorway is meant for a certain person, and those people are few and far between. Once you find your door, you might not come back or you could come back not wanting to....Eleanor West has a home for the Wayward children who come back against their will. Here she hopes to make their lives a little bit better. There is something sinister going on though at Miss West's home.

The book has some humor, it explores gender and acceptance. I fell in love with a couple of the characters. All in all a very satisfying read. ( )

You're nobody's rainbow.

You're nobody's princess.

You're nobody's doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you.
"Hope hurts. That's what you need to learn, and fast, if you don't want it to cut you open from the inside out. Hope is bad. Hope means you keep on holding to things that won't ever be so again, and so you bleed an inch at a time until there's nothing left."
We notice the silence of men. We depend upon the silence of women.
"You had milk, I had science," said Jack. "It's amazing how much of culinary achievement can be summarized by that sentence. Cheese making, for example. The perfect intersection of milk, science, and foolish disregard for the laws of nature."
"I am a genius of infinite potential and highly limited patience. People shouldn't try me so."
