#BlogTour The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In the early 1900s, a young woman embarks on a fantastical journey of self-discovery after finding a mysterious book in this captivating and lyrical debut.

In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place.

Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.

Lush and richly imagined, a tale of impossible journeys, unforgettable love, and the enduring power of stories awaits in Alix E. Harrow’s spellbinding debut–step inside and discover its magic.


The Ten Thousand Doors is a book made for people that love books about traveling to other worlds, parallel worlds through magical doors. I grew up reading the books of Narnia so this book, about a girl that discovers a book that tells her a tale about different worlds, about love, and the more she read the more will she will learn about herself.

This is a book that will make you wish you can find a door to step through and discover a new world. I quite enjoyed reading about January and her life as a ward to Mr. Locke and her yearning for her father who is out in the world gathering treasures for Mr. Locke. And, I definitely liked the chapters that dealt with The Ten Thousand Doors, the book that January found. Through the book did both January and I as a reader discover more about the doors and also about the truth of what is going on in the world. Because there is a danger, something is luring. Someone out there doesn't like the doors...

The Ten Thousand Doors is a book for those that love to read about magic, about love and adventure. For those that are looking for a good time. I enjoyed reading this book and I can't wait to read more books by Alix E. Harrow.

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy for an honest review!
