Off the Shelf: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

Author: Alix E. Harrow
Pages: 374

While browsing the shelves at the local bookstore, this book jumped out at me and I am so glad it did! This book is simply magical. I could not put it down and breezed through it in two days. January Scaller, a woman of color in the early 1900s, is the ward of an older gentleman who hired her father for his help with a mysterious archaeological society. At age seven, January stubbles upon a Door that takes her to a different realm. She receives a gift that reveals the truth of the Doors, this world, and the worlds beyond. Feeling trapped by the restrictions placed upon both women and people of color during this time period, January seeks the freedom and escape that such Doors would provide. I highly recommend this book for fans of fantasy/ adventure books, especially if you enjoy Erin Morgenstern’s books!
