Review: The Wayward Children #2-5 by Seanan McGuire

Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children, #2)

I really liked the fact that this had a much better plot. We are learning about the twins and how they came to their world. I really did think it was a bit sad and depressing. Ugh, I felt for them. I think it was a bit slower of a read because we don’t have as many characters as the first book.

Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children, #3)

This is my favorite book of the series so far! I loved the story and how so many of the characters came together for an adventure. I loved all the different characters and worlds we get to see in this one book too! I really enjoyed the plot and getting to learn more about the characters from book one. I don’t own this one but I want to because I own 3 of them and this cover looks amazing!

In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children, #4)

This one was tough for me. These books are great because they are all very fast reads. They are about 200ish pages and flow really fast. The thing about this one was that we missed all the big plot points. It completely skips the important things that happen and just kind of skim over it. We barely get an explanation. We jump from years.. from one world to the other without a notice. I don’t want to get too particular because of spoilers but I was really disappointed with this one. The plot was really lacking.

Come Tumbling Down (Wayward Children, #5)

I struggled with this one. I kind of wished that we left Jack and Jill alone at this point. I was thinking that each book would be about one of the students and their door/worlds. This one was really dark and intense. Like a lot of her books the beginning is slow and then I feel like the ending is so rushed. I wish these books would be a bit longer to really get that ending flushed out. This one is my least favorite of the series so far. I have been enjoying it and since they are so short I will keep going!

I’m so glad that I’ve finally caught up with this series! I’ve seen so many people talk about it and I can see why it’s so popular. I have enjoyed my time with these characters and the worlds. I do think there’s a lot of things lacking and that they would be a bit longer. Overall, I like it and can’t wait for the next one! 🙂
