    Beneath the Sugar Sky takes readers back to the world of Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, but not to a moment in time before the events of the first book. It is a sequel rather than a prequel. I found it strangely satisfying in a way that Down Among the Sticks and Bones was...

    ?They can be hard for their families to understand, those returned, used-up miracle children. They sound like liars to people who never had a doorway of their own. They sound like dreamers. They sound... unwell, to the charitable, and simply sick to the cruel.? The Wayward Chi...

    ?There is kindness in the world, if we know how to look for it, if we never stop denying it the door.? ?Seanan McGuire, Beneath the Sugar Sky Not my favorite of the series but still a very enjoyable read. Seanan McGuire writes beautifully and the ideas within this novel ...

    McGuire?s sequel to her Hugo and Nebula winning novella Every Heart a Doorway is just as charming, and even more adventurous. A girl named Rini falls from the sky claiming to be the daughter of Sumi, a former student at Eleanor West?s Home for Wayward Children. But Sumi was murdere...

    I loved jumping around and seeing more worlds in this one, just like in the last one we got to see into Jack and Jill's world of The Moors. In this one, we get descriptions of a few more worlds, and we get some actual action taking place in Nancy's Land of the Dead, Sumi and Rini's Con...

    There is kindness in the world, if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the door. 4.5 stars. I loved that this one had more of an ensemble cast and explored another new world! The premise is a bit spoilery if you haven?t read Every Heart a Doorway, but thi...

    3.75/5 Another fun book in this series! Not as good as Down Among the Sticks and Bones?but enjoyable, entertaining and nonsensical nonetheless. Unlike Down Among the Sticks and Bones, which was eerie and horror-like, this book was light and sweet (excuse the pun, if you?ve re...

    There is kindness in the world - if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the door. This is the third book in the Wayward Children series that tells of a "school" full of children that, at one point or another, have all travelled to different magical worlds but ar...

    Fantastic. Seanan McGuire does it again with a creepy, surreal, heartbreaking return to a world ruled by Nonsense. I can't explain the feeling I get when I read these books. Like my heart is leaning halfway out my chest. That's how much it goes out to these characters. ...

    I just adore this series. I don't think this was quite a strong as the first two books in the series (Down Among the Sticks and Bones is definitely the strongest), but it was still phenomenal. Sumi was probably my least favorite character from Every Heart a Doorway, so the prospect ...

    So far this is my favorite one! First Sentence: Children have always tumbled down rabbit holes, fallen through mirrors, been swept away by unseasonal floods or carried off by tornadoes. This is becoming one of my favorite series! I'm in awe of Seanan McGuire; she spun tales so ...

    Oh. My. God. Best of the series so far. This part isn't released until Jan '18, so I'm going to hold off and post my review closer to the release date. *THANK YOU Tor & Edelweiss for providing me a copy for review.* For real, I love you. Thanks. ...

    Beneath the Sugar Sky takes readers back to the world of Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, but not to a moment in time before the events of the first book. It is a sequel rather than a prequel. I found it strangely satisfying in a way that Down Among the Sticks and Bones was...

    I loved this! This may be my favorite in the series. I need more! ...

    Reading this book in Ramadan is a fun way to torture yourself. I mean all those sweets made my mouth water, and I couldn't even drink anything. Rating 3,75 stars The Plot I seriously can't think of anything to write. Sorry. The Characters We have a crew to save the d...

    Delightful! ...

    ?They can be hard for their families to understand, those returned, used-up miracle children. They sound like liars to people who never had a doorway of their own. They sound like dreamers. They sound... unwell, to the charitable, and simply sick to the cruel.? The Wayward Chi...

    ?There is kindness in the world, if we know how to look for it, if we never stop denying it the door.? ?Seanan McGuire, Beneath the Sugar Sky Not my favorite of the series but still a very enjoyable read. Seanan McGuire writes beautifully and the ideas within this novel ...

    McGuire?s sequel to her Hugo and Nebula winning novella Every Heart a Doorway is just as charming, and even more adventurous. A girl named Rini falls from the sky claiming to be the daughter of Sumi, a former student at Eleanor West?s Home for Wayward Children. But Sumi was murdere...

    I loved jumping around and seeing more worlds in this one, just like in the last one we got to see into Jack and Jill's world of The Moors. In this one, we get descriptions of a few more worlds, and we get some actual action taking place in Nancy's Land of the Dead, Sumi and Rini's Con...

    There is kindness in the world, if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the door. 4.5 stars. I loved that this one had more of an ensemble cast and explored another new world! The premise is a bit spoilery if you haven?t read Every Heart a Doorway, but thi...

    3.75/5 Another fun book in this series! Not as good as Down Among the Sticks and Bones?but enjoyable, entertaining and nonsensical nonetheless. Unlike Down Among the Sticks and Bones, which was eerie and horror-like, this book was light and sweet (excuse the pun, if you?ve re...

    There is kindness in the world - if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the door. This is the third book in the Wayward Children series that tells of a "school" full of children that, at one point or another, have all travelled to different magical worlds but ar...

    Fantastic. Seanan McGuire does it again with a creepy, surreal, heartbreaking return to a world ruled by Nonsense. I can't explain the feeling I get when I read these books. Like my heart is leaning halfway out my chest. That's how much it goes out to these characters. ...

    I just adore this series. I don't think this was quite a strong as the first two books in the series (Down Among the Sticks and Bones is definitely the strongest), but it was still phenomenal. Sumi was probably my least favorite character from Every Heart a Doorway, so the prospect ...

    So far this is my favorite one! First Sentence: Children have always tumbled down rabbit holes, fallen through mirrors, been swept away by unseasonal floods or carried off by tornadoes. This is becoming one of my favorite series! I'm in awe of Seanan McGuire; she spun tales so ...

    I know, I know. 2 stars? 2 stars!? Well friends, my expectations for this book were sky high & 2 stars is actually being generous. Considering it took me a whole month of slogging through 10 pages at a time of this 176 page book, I think 2 stars is being very generous indeed. ...

    Beneath the Sugar Sky takes readers back to the world of Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, but not to a moment in time before the events of the first book. It is a sequel rather than a prequel. I found it strangely satisfying in a way that Down Among the Sticks and Bones was...

    McGuire?s sequel to her Hugo and Nebula winning novella Every Heart a Doorway is just as charming, and even more adventurous. A girl named Rini falls from the sky claiming to be the daughter of Sumi, a former student at Eleanor West?s Home for Wayward Children. But Sumi was murdere...

    Fantastic. Seanan McGuire does it again with a creepy, surreal, heartbreaking return to a world ruled by Nonsense. I can't explain the feeling I get when I read these books. Like my heart is leaning halfway out my chest. That's how much it goes out to these characters. ...

    The Wayward Children series has stolen my heart yet again. What a wonderful third installment to an already fantastic series! As always, Seanan McGuire has one of the most eloquent writing styles of which I have ever had the pleasure of indulging in. Her prose is truly magical, allo...

    "Nobody promised me a happy ending. They didn't even promise me a happy existence." i love this series so dingdang much. it?s true that i gave this one four stars instead of the five stars i gave to the other two, but it?s a really high four stars. there?s been no decline in w...

    Re-read 2/9/18: So I decided to re-read this one already because my hold of the audiobook came through at my library and I have to say that I ended up lowering my rating by one star. While I loved the plus size rep and all the characters in this one, I just didn?t love the story of t...

    I know, I know. 2 stars? 2 stars!? Well friends, my expectations for this book were sky high & 2 stars is actually being generous. Considering it took me a whole month of slogging through 10 pages at a time of this 176 page book, I think 2 stars is being very generous indeed. ...

    Audiobook Re-read Review (2018): So I stand by everything I said in my original review (below) about the fat rep being too heavy handed for my preference, but it's either less noticeable in the audio format, or some of the mentions were taken out of the finished copy. I could still ...

    3.75ish stars. Maybe my most anticipated read of the year. To say I loved Every Heart a Doorway would be an understatement, and I thought Down Among the Sticks and Bones was really wonderful, too. Couldn't wait to get back to the school! While the world is still enchanting and c...

    Modern fairy tales. Gotta love them, especially when they take twelve core hearts and totally run with them, allowing an almost meta world-building full of magical doors taking the young at heart (or obsessional) directly to their best dreamland. :) This third book in the Wayward Ch...

    Beneath the Sugar Sky takes readers back to the world of Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, but not to a moment in time before the events of the first book. It is a sequel rather than a prequel. I found it strangely satisfying in a way that Down Among the Sticks and Bones was...

    Reading this book in Ramadan is a fun way to torture yourself. I mean all those sweets made my mouth water, and I couldn't even drink anything. Rating 3,75 stars The Plot I seriously can't think of anything to write. Sorry. The Characters We have a crew to save the d...

    McGuire?s sequel to her Hugo and Nebula winning novella Every Heart a Doorway is just as charming, and even more adventurous. A girl named Rini falls from the sky claiming to be the daughter of Sumi, a former student at Eleanor West?s Home for Wayward Children. But Sumi was murdere...

    I loved jumping around and seeing more worlds in this one, just like in the last one we got to see into Jack and Jill's world of The Moors. In this one, we get descriptions of a few more worlds, and we get some actual action taking place in Nancy's Land of the Dead, Sumi and Rini's Con...

    There is kindness in the world, if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the door. 4.5 stars. I loved that this one had more of an ensemble cast and explored another new world! The premise is a bit spoilery if you haven?t read Every Heart a Doorway, but thi...

    3.75/5 Another fun book in this series! Not as good as Down Among the Sticks and Bones?but enjoyable, entertaining and nonsensical nonetheless. Unlike Down Among the Sticks and Bones, which was eerie and horror-like, this book was light and sweet (excuse the pun, if you?ve re...

    There is kindness in the world - if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the door. This is the third book in the Wayward Children series that tells of a "school" full of children that, at one point or another, have all travelled to different magical worlds but ar...

    Fantastic. Seanan McGuire does it again with a creepy, surreal, heartbreaking return to a world ruled by Nonsense. I can't explain the feeling I get when I read these books. Like my heart is leaning halfway out my chest. That's how much it goes out to these characters. ...

    I just adore this series. I don't think this was quite a strong as the first two books in the series (Down Among the Sticks and Bones is definitely the strongest), but it was still phenomenal. Sumi was probably my least favorite character from Every Heart a Doorway, so the prospect ...
