    These Wayward children are all pretty damn awesome. It's not hard to love a land built on your heart's wishes, a heavy dichotomy between fantasy and reality, and the rules that go along with it. Lundry, in this one, feels damn important to me. It's almost like I was her. :) Booki...

    This is definitely my favourite volume so far of this enchanting series. We follow Katherine Lundy, a girl of (at first) 8 years of age, and experience how the little bookworm doesn?t have any friends anymore because her father is her school?s principal. She?s fine though sinc...

    IT HAS A COVER AND IT'S GONNA BE ABOUT LUNDY *shakes* YESSSS SEANAN MCGUIRE IS WRITING MORE WAYWARD CHILDREN BOOKS BLESS MOVED GRATEFUL ...

    I absolutely loved this latest book in Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series! The world she creates for our protagonist Katherine Lundy is brilliant! A girl who loves fairness and following rules, Lundy goes through a door to the Goblin Market, a world in which "fair value" is t...

    You can find this review and more at Novel Notions. I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. While I appreciate the gift, the giving of it in no way impacted my opinion. ?Your name is your heart, and you don?t give your he...

    My love for this series just keeps growing. This installment is more similar to Down Among the Sticks and Bones than the other two, in that it fills in the backstory for a side character from Eleanor's school. You are immersed in Lundy's childhood and the world of her door. I admit ...

    Update: I think Seanan wanted to rip my heart out. But it was worth it. :') X( 02/09/18 Anyone else hoping for like 15 million more of these books (as well as a book about Cora's mermaid world)??? I sure as hell am!!! Gimme!!! ...

    "To be a child is to be a visitor from another world." In In an Absent Dream we follow Lundy, the child psychologist and therapy session guide at the school for wayward children. She looks eternally young despite her wisdom and in this book, we learn her backstory, her doorway world...

    4.5/5 I totally forgot I read this in February so I'm adding this to GR now! Ugh, I love this series so much. It's just so special and always makes me feel so nice. ...

    This novella acts, just as books two and three do, as a prequel to the first. It involves Lundy and her trip into a wayward world, very unlike our own. One day, Lundy finds her mind lost inside of a book and her feet leading her into the land of the Goblin Market. I was unsure wheth...

    In a story about a girl going to a place named The Goblin Market you probably shouldn?t expect something akin to a happy ending. And if you also read some of the other books in this series you know at least that Lundy currently looks 8 but is really somewhere in her 80s. This is her ...

    In this enjoyable entry in the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire, we learn the other-worldly wanderings of the person who calls herself Lundy and why she is the way she is. Like the other children from this series, the world, in this case the Goblin Market, chose the child f...

    5ish stars. My favorite of the series so far. I can?t help feeling like the Goblin Market didn?t give me fair value by never offering me a door. ...

    In an Absent Dream is the latest novella in Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series. I've read every single novella and this, the fourth, is just like the previous ones fabulous. If you love reading books about children traveling to other realms then you really need to read these nove...

    In a story about a girl going to a place named The Goblin Market you probably shouldn?t expect something akin to a happy ending. And if you also read some of the other books in this series you know at least that Lundy currently looks 8 but is really somewhere in her 80s. This is her ...

    4.5/5 I totally forgot I read this in February so I'm adding this to GR now! Ugh, I love this series so much. It's just so special and always makes me feel so nice. ...

    This novella acts, just as books two and three do, as a prequel to the first. It involves Lundy and her trip into a wayward world, very unlike our own. One day, Lundy finds her mind lost inside of a book and her feet leading her into the land of the Goblin Market. I was unsure wheth...

    In a story about a girl going to a place named The Goblin Market you probably shouldn?t expect something akin to a happy ending. And if you also read some of the other books in this series you know at least that Lundy currently looks 8 but is really somewhere in her 80s. This is her ...

    In this enjoyable entry in the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire, we learn the other-worldly wanderings of the person who calls herself Lundy and why she is the way she is. Like the other children from this series, the world, in this case the Goblin Market, chose the child f...

    In an Absent Dream is the latest novella in Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series. I've read every single novella and this, the fourth, is just like the previous ones fabulous. If you love reading books about children traveling to other realms then you really need to read these nove...

    4.5 STARS I love the writing, I love the worlds. This series never fails to inspire and wow me. This wasn't my favorite only because the rules of the world confused me, even after having been stated several times. But I love Lundy and seeing her playful side and seeing how dedicate...

    These Wayward children are all pretty damn awesome. It's not hard to love a land built on your heart's wishes, a heavy dichotomy between fantasy and reality, and the rules that go along with it. Lundry, in this one, feels damn important to me. It's almost like I was her. :) Booki...

    This is definitely my favourite volume so far of this enchanting series. We follow Katherine Lundy, a girl of (at first) 8 years of age, and experience how the little bookworm doesn?t have any friends anymore because her father is her school?s principal. She?s fine though sinc...

    IT HAS A COVER AND IT'S GONNA BE ABOUT LUNDY *shakes* YESSSS SEANAN MCGUIRE IS WRITING MORE WAYWARD CHILDREN BOOKS BLESS MOVED GRATEFUL ...

    I absolutely loved this latest book in Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series! The world she creates for our protagonist Katherine Lundy is brilliant! A girl who loves fairness and following rules, Lundy goes through a door to the Goblin Market, a world in which "fair value" is t...

    You can find this review and more at Novel Notions. I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. While I appreciate the gift, the giving of it in no way impacted my opinion. ?Your name is your heart, and you don?t give your he...

    My love for this series just keeps growing. This installment is more similar to Down Among the Sticks and Bones than the other two, in that it fills in the backstory for a side character from Eleanor's school. You are immersed in Lundy's childhood and the world of her door. I admit ...

    Update: I think Seanan wanted to rip my heart out. But it was worth it. :') X( 02/09/18 Anyone else hoping for like 15 million more of these books (as well as a book about Cora's mermaid world)??? I sure as hell am!!! Gimme!!! ...

    "To be a child is to be a visitor from another world." In In an Absent Dream we follow Lundy, the child psychologist and therapy session guide at the school for wayward children. She looks eternally young despite her wisdom and in this book, we learn her backstory, her doorway world...
