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.
“How fitting, that the most terrifying time in my life should require me to do what I do best: escape into a book.” 

There are Ten Thousand and One things I want to say about this book but yet, I am left utterly speechless. I can say, without a doubt, that this is the most unique story I have ever read. The Ten Thousand Doors of January is a fantastical, tug-on-your-heart-strings journey. It is so intelligently written and went far beyond any expectations I had for it. 

The Ten Thousand Doors of January is a book that will tap itself into your very core. The child still living within you who's imagination is still running free, untainted, this book awakens that part of you. The world's, portals and characters came alive vividly, the words leaping off of the pages. It truly is a whimsical reading experience; as if the author cast her very own spell within the pages, creating a magical tale that will come to life before you, and stay with you long after you've finished. 

I am still awestruck. This is one of those books that one can go on and on about, but you will never truly grasp the extraordinary beauty of its story until you experience it on your own. A truly beautiful and heartening read that will leave you stirring. I miss it already.
