The Ten Thousand Doors of January

So obviously the first thing that drew me to this book was the title. It’s awesome! Plus, I was born in January and it turns out that means I have a soft spot for that name/month (who knew?).

Plus, the author blurb mentioned that Ahdieh is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, so I of course have to show some alumna support! But then,… Continue reading The Wrath & the Dawn (duology)
