I love a great world with relatable characters who seem realistic, even if they are fantastical.

Every Heart a Doorway

Every Heart a Doorway - Seanan McGuire For me, this book was a three and a half star read. I picked it up because I was attracted to the name. Unfortunately, it didn't quite deliver.

What I loved:
- The premise
- The ideas
- The characters
- The inclusiveness (mainly Nancy and Kade)

What I didn't like
- The plot

No matter how pretty a package you wrap a story in, if it doesn't have meat, it's not a good story. I couldn't help but feel as if the author got off to a good start, and then lost her train of thought completely and never got it back, so she ended up finishing the book with a very thin and unconvincing story. I was especially disappointed with the ending.

However, this book was very beautifully written and I did enjoy the ideas. Luckily, it was also quite a short book so it didn't feel like a complete waste of time.
