Y‘all, read the warning on this one (it‘s in the book) before you read but also? I love Seanan‘s writing so much and Antsy‘s book is no exception I love this series so much and I love this book and this girl and this story so much y‘all.

Well, shit.
Why are these books so perfect?
Why are they so short?
Why do I have to wait for the next one?

If you love the other Wayward Children books you'll enjoy this one. It's a heavier book (I'll put warnings in the comments), but Antsy is such a lovable character. I hope we'll get to see more of her. I enjoyed the few little glimpses of other characters and worlds we're familiar with, and I'm fascinated by this shop for lost things.

GondorGirl Warnings- sudden parent death, grooming, gaslighting, implied child pornography. 2d

When Antsy‘s home becomes unsafe, she finds a door to the Land of Lost Things. Will she stay as lost as she feels?

This broke my heart. It took me so long to get through the first hour, even with the CW at the beginning because the narration was exactly what the story needed. McGuire is excellent at packing a punch in such a short book, & this stands on its own pretty well. A story of lost childhood & innocence, & a satisfying ending. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

ozma.of.oz Specific warnings of death of a parent in chapter 1, and there is lead up to SA of a child in chapter 3, but Antsy runs before anything happens. General warning for gaslighting and abuse of a child and pedophilia. 6d

I love this series so much.

This one is a stand alone, though we get a few glimpses of other characters and worlds you‘ll recognize if you‘ve read the whole series.

I wish it wouldn‘t be another year before the next Door appears!

I realized this morning how many series I‘m looking forward to continuing with this year, so I‘m joining #SeriesLove2023. 😁📚💕

Andrew65 Well done. That is the frustrating thing when you are up to date on a series, a long wait for the next one. 👏👏👏 Great to have you join us, it has already given me great fun this year. (edited) 1w

Every January I look forward to the next book in the Wayward Children series. This one was dark. Her author‘s note in the beginning was nice reassurance that it wouldn‘t get too dark because I can‘t read truly disturbing books. This one really sucked me in and I read it all in 2 sittings, which is quick considering I‘m generally a slow reader with a deteriorating attention span.

I had myself a craving for crinkle cookies, but I ran out of kisses. 😂 So the nibling helped me hunt down some Reese‘s cups for the last few cookies.

And letting Seanan break my heart all over again. ❤️

SheReadsAndWrites That sounds amazing! 😋 1w

Branwen @vivastory I have not! 😱 Are they good? The only other books I've read by her are Middlegame and Seasonal Fears which were both fantastic! 1w

This collection of three novellas has all the classic Grisham vibes and his storytelling is just as good in the shorter form. I enjoyed each of the stories in this book, but Strawberry Moon landed best for me. Ideal summer reading.
