Book Review: Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

98976c1466fded97034c2fd3f4c1a298 (1)Beneath the Sugar Sky returns to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. At this magical boarding school, children who have experienced fantasy adventures are reintroduced to the “real” world.

Sumi died years before her prophesied daughter Rini could be born. Rini was born anyway, and now she’s trying to bring her mother back from a world without magic, (Goodreads).


I know I’m in the minority with this one but I didn’t like this story as much as the others. The story wasn’t as exciting and I wasn’t in love with the writing as much as Every Heart a Doorway or Down Among the Sticks and Bones. I also HATED the Nonsense world.  I think that’s it. I’m just not a girl made for Nonsense.

I would still recommend to those who are into reading novellas with whimsical writing, and a deeper meaning behind what is actually going on. Also if you love reading books with a diverse set of characters this is *chef’s kiss* the book for you.

I am still going to pick up the next two books because I want to learn more about these worlds but this book just missed the mark for me!
