The Ten Thousand Doors of January Author: Alix E. Harrow Publisher: Redhook (Hachette Book Group) Release Date: September 10, 2019 Synopsis: In the early 1900s, a young woman searches for her place in the world and the mystery behind a magical door in this captivating 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.
Um, hi, I need this book. NOW.
I stumbled upon this one while browsing Goodreads giveaways and I full stopped and just started at this cover with that intriguing title. Then I read the synopsis and I was done. Dead. Deceased.
Peculiar treasures? The wealthy (and hopefully grumpy) Mr. Locke? Strange books? LOVE, ADVENTURE, DANGER? Sign me up, post haste.
Well folks, it’s the last Wednesday of 2018. Instead of focusing on just one book I’m wanting, I’ll be featuring one for each month of 2019. And because I am terrible at choosing just one, there are going to be more than a few honorable mentions for the months where more books have already been announced. Seriously, I’m the worst at making choices.

This series is one of the few contemporary books I will read. Probably because twisty and dark and just so damned dramatic in all the way I love. Even though the cover makes me want to scream in rage (ORANGE? WHY? WHY? WHY?), I will be picking this one up the moment it is released.

July Dark Age Author: Pierce Brown Publisher: Del Rey Release Date: July 9, 2019 Synopsis:[Here]
I’ve been reading the Red Rising books since the first one came out in 2014. Brown, besides being brutal to his reader’s emotions, is a creator of worlds and characters that I lose myself in. I am counting down the days until Dark Age is in my hands.
