“The world doesn’t stop spinning because you’re sad, and that’s good; if it did, people would go around breaking hearts like they were sheets of maple sugar, just to keep the world exactly where it is. They’d make it out like it was a good thing, a few crying children in exchange for a peace that never falters or fades. We can be sad and we can be hurt and we can even be killed, but the world keeps turning, and the things we’re supposed to do keep needing to be done.” – 4/5 stars!
Attention! This book contains: lightning, skeletons, horses, dark doors, dead bodies, unfitting clothes, mermaids and priests.
With all the crazy things that are going on in the world right now, there is nothing better than to let your mind breathe and be carried away by an amazing story. Fortunately for us, books have that power.
This series is incredible. I’ve said it so many times, and I will say it again: NO ONE writes like Seanan McGuire. She is a very talented writer and a true storyteller, and it’s such a pleasure for me to read her work.
‘Come Tumbling Down’ is not my favorite book in this series, but it follows my favorite story from my favorite book, ‘Down Among the Sticks and Stones’. But don’t get me wrong, it was an amazing book! I’m super happy that Jack and Jill’s story was picked up again. Comparing to the other characters, their story is the one that intrigues me the most.
There are so many aspects in this series that make me keep reading these books. I love how the kids are connected to each other like a family. I mean, the entire gang went to Moors with Jack to help her. All the books are fun with a hint of darkness, inspiring, packed with adventure and a lot of nonsense.
Also, can I say how cool it was to see Sumi being so poetic? Don’t be fooled by her bubbliness folks… she’s is so deep, Adele was rolling in the back.
I strongly believe that Jack’s story will be picked up again given that ending… but we’ll see! I will definitely pick up the next book when it comes out next year!
