Totally new, totally different. Everything was unique and kept my attention. Even when nothing much happened, I was listening carefully.


I've read this book several times and have yet to review it? Let's just say this is one of my favorite books! I love the diversity and I love the characters. Nancy might be my favorite character in this whole series. I love that I want more from this story but at the same time, it's complete. I don't need anything more for completion. I need more because it's just so freaking good!

Fairytale gold

I wonderful little fairytale that I adored. The misfit Wayward children all have one thing in common, they want to belong. And I think amongst each other, they will finally have that place. For as short as this was, there was ALOT to sink your teeth into and I was blown away. This one I will be rereading for years to come and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Wayward children have in store.

A new favorite series

Peter Pan + School for Good and Evil + And Then There Were None + Seanan McGuire Have you ever wondered what happened after “The End?” If YOU were Alice, would you really want to leave Wonderland? This is a story of those that were sent back to their worlds, kicking and screaming. They want nothing more than to find their door (rabbit hole/window/cyclone/etc). Eleanor, headmistress of Wayward School wants nothing more than to take them into her care, away from parents who will never understand) and help them find their doors. But when new student Nancy arrives, tragedy strikes..and again..and again.. I ABSOLUTELY adored this book! I gave 5-stars to Over the Woodward Walls and EHaH blew it out the waters! I don’t know how Seanan does it! She is able to tell THE best stories in less than 200 pages! And her language and world-building is second to none! This book was gorgeous, creepy, mysterious, funny, scary, and inclusive!! This is my favorite read of the month and have already ordered #2 for January! One note: I have seen some reviews saying this is MG. I would just be careful about letting younger ones read, as there are f-bombs and talk about adult toys. I would say this is more a fairy tale for teens or adults. Buy this for yourself or someone who has always wondered what happens after “The End.” Or, if you’re twisted, get it for someone who believes fairy tales only apply to children.

Short and Sweet

This book is honestly so much fun to read. It’s fairly short so it doesn’t take long, and it’s always great to see queer rep and not have to feel like your identity was an afterthought the author just throws in with no care to how it lands.
