Top Five Books With Doorways

Well hello, beautiful people! It’s going to be a balmy 70 degrees here in Texas today. Quite a change from last week when we were preparing for icy weather. I both love and hate the south.

Today I am doing Top 5 Tuesday! Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is now hosted, at Meeghan reads. You can find the list of topics for January through March here!

Today’s topic is all about books with doorways in them. I haven’t read too many of them, so I’m going to go with books I want to read or re-read.

The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Yes, I picked the most obvious one. I haven’t read this since I was a child and I am curious to see how adult me will view the books. Kid me loved them.

Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire

I actually picked this one up last year. It has a great reputation and looks to be a quick read. Also that cover is cute.

Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

This book comes highly recommended by friends of mine, so I asked for it for a Christmas gift and that wish was granted! This story sounds so good though. Why haven’t I read it yet?

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Okay, but hear me out. The whole adventure starts with Bilbo deciding to walk out his front door! And yes, I know, the quote “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door…” comes from Lord of the Rings, but it’s because of his experience in the Hobbit that he says this!

Harry Potter and the…by You know who.

Pick a Harry Potter book and you might find mention of Platform 9 and 3/4. It’s one of the most famous doorways in literary history. It’s how Harry gets to Hogwarts. And yes, you can also pick Diagon Ally, that’s a pretty cool doorway too.

And there you have it, my list of doorways. Does yours look any different?

  1. I highly recommend the Wayward Children series, and I love the two Narnia books I’ve actually read (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and The Magician’s Nephew.) I really need to take some time to finish that series. 🙂
