Readux_Every Heart a Doorway

Readux: Through the Looking Glass Edition

It was the premise of Every Heart a Doorway that enticed me most: the idea of a school–a haven–for children who went through fantastical portals and experienced adventures and magic and danger. I imagined a cast of characters that would be like putting Dorothy Gale, Alice, the Pevensie children, and so many other characters who I envied as a child for finding those magical doors, being put up in school together.

Readux: Dramatis Personae Edition

For such a huge book, The Falcon Throne tells quite a tight story. The dramas are quite personal and intense ones–lovers torn apart by others’ political ambition, a young woman trapped in the gilded cage of her rank, an innkeeper protecting her children even from their own pasts.

Readux: Me After Me Before You

I’m not usually a contemporary literature type. There’s not enough swords. So I was as surprised as anyone to find that I, epic-fantasy-adventure-time addict that I am, veritably inhaled this book.

Readux: Pride & Prejudice & Magic Edition

The Glamourist Histories are the first books I’ve ever read that take place in Regency England and are not in same way connected to the Jane Austen canon. So how did this reader gauge these books against the most demanding measuring stick of all time?
