This might be my new favorite book! Even if you don’t like fantasy, you should give this one a read. Such a wonderful message. ( )

2nd time reading, June 2020: It's been so long since I've read a book twice in as many months, but "Cerulean Sea" deserves it. This book is giant slice of magic and happiness.

1st time reading, April 2020: "The House in the Cerulean Sea" walks the line between the quirky style of Lemony Snicket and the found family vibes of Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series. TJ Klune has created one of the most warmly enchanting books I've ever had the joy of reading. It's a profound story about acceptance, challenging prejudice, family, and love, and even if that sounds a bit cheesy it's still completely true. I can't recommended this enough, and personally look forwards to rereading this again and again. ( )

This. This book. It deserves many more than five stars. I can't even begin to do it justice - just know that it made my heart soar and melt and by the end of it (yes, at 3 in the morning, because I had to stay up and finish it) I had to half-bury my face in a pillow as I read to keep from squealing.

It's really that good. ( )

Has a good heart, but subtle it is not. ( )

From my TBR box

Very sweet book about a cast of oddballs trying to survive in an unfriendly world. Acceptance and finding your chosen family is the overarching theme.

A nice respite from the ugly world we live in. ( )

If ever there was an author to watch out for, [Klune] is definitely that author.

A delightful tale about chosen families, and how to celebrate differences.
tilføjet af Dariah | RedigerLibrary Journal
 
A beautiful little gem of both irony and, yes, kindness.
tilføjet af Dariah | RedigerFantasy & Science Fiction
 
This inclusive fantasy is quite possibly the greatest feel-good story ever to involve the Antichrist.... The House in the Cerulean Sea will delight fans of Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series and any reader looking for a burst of humor and hope.
tilføjet af Dariah | RedigerShelf Awareness
 
This is a sweet narrative about the value of asking questions and the benefits of giving people (especially children) a chance to be safe, protected, and themselves, regardless of what assumptions one might glean from, say, reading their case file.

“There are mysteries that may never be solved, no matter how hard we try. And if we spend too long trying to solve them, we may miss what’s right in front of us. The world is a weird and wonderful place. Why must we try and explain it all away?” (p. 114)
“I am but paper. Brittle and thin. I am held up to the sun, and it shines right through me. I get written on, and I can never be used again. These scratches are a history. They’re a story. Hey tell things for others s to read, but they only see the words, and not what the words are written upon. I am but paper, and though there are many like me, none are exactly the same. I am parched parchment. I have lines. I have holes. Get me wet, and I melt. Light me on fire, and I burn. Take me in hardened hands, and I crumple. I tear. I am but paper. Brittle and thin.” (p. 133)
"Don't you wish you were here?"
