    If you have loved Narnia, you MUST look this book up next fall. I don't even have words to describe how much I adored it; the lyrical, literary prose, the deeply flawed but eminently relatable characters, the utterly phenomenal premise. This book is like nostalgia incarnate, and not qu...

    A yearning, achingly lovely take on what happens when you find your way free of your own world and into one that suits you better--then are forced back home again. This is a book for anyone who dreamed of being Lucy Pevensie or broke their heart over poor Susan, with the mystical, lone...

    I was on the fence about this book until I found myself crying. It?s beautifully written and achingly sad in places. It?s about loving someone who is happy in a completely different life to you, one you can?t share. It?s about two sisters who belong in different places, and the...

    Initial Impressions 8/19/18: 4.5 stars What a beautiful book this was! THE LIGHT BETWEEN WORLDS wasn't quite what I was expecting but it turned out to be even better. The focus was much more on the time after the fantasy world and how the three siblings had to deal with being back in ...

    Lovely writing. Winsome characters. Leisurely pace. This novel explores the characters? longings for another world & the ache they feel when separated from the place they truly belong. A strong YA novel with beautiful use of language. I look forward to another story from this tal...

    This review was originally posted on The Moonlight Library I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Some people will see this as a loving homage to Narnia, with similar...

    This book is achingly horribly painfully sad. The pitch for THE LIGHT BETWEEN WORLDS is basically what would life be like for children, grown into heroes or saviours in another world, to come home (ie, post-Narnia). Or to what was once home. I'm not sure exactly what I expected from...

    4.5 stars. I'm an Indigo Employee, and I received an advanced reading copy of this book, in exchange for my honest feedback. The alternate ending to Narnia that you never knew you needed. This book was devastating (in the best of ways). Covering incredibly heavy topics like grief...

    Thanks, Edelweiss and HaperTeen for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. "The heart of a woman falls back with the night, And enters some alien cage in its plight, And tries to forget it has dreamed of the stars While it breaks, breaks, breaks ...

    Wow, this book was quite a trip. It started out with a Chronicles of Narnia vibe but then turned into all of the darkness and poetic beauty of Wintersong. This book gives insight to what might happen after Narnia. They?ve lived in a different world, are years older, different people ...

    Right. Where do I even start with this? How about here: there's only one other book (or series, rather) I've read this year that's made me cry as much as this one, and even now, days later, it's got me aching and drenched with its characters and their pains. I wondered if should ...

    HOLY CRAP! I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK Firstly, I did not realize how much of a historical fiction it was going to be! It's a historical fiction with some fantasy--not a fantasy. I got some hardcore Narnia vibes but the POV and information given was actually quite different. Imagine ...

    I stayed up most of the night reading this. It's that compelling! The premise is great. What happens to kids once they get back from someplace like Narnia (it isn't Narnia, but a similar kind of fantastical alternate world) and have to fit themselves back into this reality? The writi...

    4.5 stars This was such a poignant read, I'm stunned by Weymouth's expert skill at manipulating what we perceive as reality and fiction. Not only was I wholly immersed in this novel--in the rich worlds of the Woodlands and wartime London--I was also invested in the characters' st...

    How dare someone think to write this! I mean ... this was just ... COMPLETELY, UTTERLY AND IRREVOCABLY DEVASTATING!!! First, let me start off by saying I had ridiculously high expectations for this book. Ever since the deal was announced, say a year and a half ago, I have kept an ey...

    This book is 50% girl searching for her way back home and 50% girl searching for her missing sister. It involves a lot of emotional and physical searching. If you?re searching for a POW-wow-wow book, this isn?t it. It?s a quiet and character-heavy look at emotions and the rep...

    This book wasn?t quite what I expected. It was very character driven and more focused on the emotions and repercussions of leaving what you love behind. I like that it?s set during/after the war too and the comparisons between our world and the Woodlands. It is essentiall...
