Every Heart a Doorway Reviews
I cannot remember the last time I read a book in one sitting (given, this is a novella under 200 pages) but the reason I finished so quickly is because I was ADDICTED to reading, it really had nothing to do with the length. I literally picked this book up on a whim because I've been bored at work, and it quickly became much more than a distraction. I can't tell you how much I loved it!
I enjoyed Every Heart a Doorway so much more than I could have anticipated. The characters are intriguing, the ...more
Their love wanted to fix her, and refused to see that she wasn't broken.
I think I might have needed to adjust my expectations from novel-goals to novella-goals. I judged this as a book. I did not judge this as a novella. To be fair, I do think this novella could've done with more character work and that all-important middle section. But the fact remains that my rating and review of this is slightly unfair, and I've definitely enjoyed later works Down Among the Sticks and Bones and Beneath the ...more
Re-read 1/19/18: Y’all, this was SO much fun to re-read after knowing the backstory of Jack & Jill that we get in Down Among the Sticks and Bones. I can’t wait to re-read it again sometime after I finish Beneath the Sugar Sky. I just love this universe SO MUCH.
Re-read 7/17/17: I loved this even more the second time around. I cannot wait to finally dig into Down Among the Sticks and Bones!
Original read 12/20/16: I really, REALLY liked this. My only complaint is that I wish it was 500 pages l ...more
This is hands down my favorite book of all time. I have read it 6 times now and I love it more and more each time. This book is for anyone who has ever felt different and weird. ever felt like they didn't fit in and dreamed of a place that accepted what others denied.
"For us, the places we went were home. We didn't care if they were good or evil or neutral or what. We cared about the fact that for the first time we didn't have to pretend to be something we weren't. We just got to be. That made...more

“You found freedom, if only for a moment, and when you lost it, you came here, hoping it could be found again.”
This story started out grand and sprawling, a majestic, epic tale of finding out what happens when you come back to an unwanted reality after living in a magical place.
And yet somewhere along the way, it didn’t work for me.
This book read more like a short story than a full novel and I liked that. But there were a lot of dull moments here and there, especially when tragedy struck. And I ...more
We notice the silence of men. We depend upon the silence of women.
This book was heart-achingly beautiful. I don't even know how to coherently arrange my thoughts to explain the way this book dragged me in from beginning to end. I adore compact narratives. I think they have the potential to say so much in so few words, and this has definitely fallen among my favorite books that say so much in such little space. This book was about identity. And it handled it beautifully. It was odd, m ...more
