Reading Challenge 2020 – March – The Ten Thousand Doors of January

Reading 12 in 12 in 2020 did really not get off to a good start. I did not finish the Ten Thousand Doors of January.

But first, isn’t the dust sleeve the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? I must admit, this really was a cover purchase through and through!

 

I did not continue with this book because
A) I was struggling with concentrating on any book
B) Although I could see why people like this book, and have rated it high, but where I was in my life at the time .. it was perhaps hitting too close to home. (ahem, January wanting to use the Doors to escape her situation 😩)
C) I do not like the book in a book trope
D) I will definitely try again

Maybe venturing out of my comfort zone wasn’t such a good idea after all? Magical Realism is definitely not one that has immediately caught my attention 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

    Aww, I’m really sorry you didn’t enjoy Ten Thousand Doors of January, it’s one of my favourite books! I am a huge fan of magical realism but I’ve also had the experience of reading a book that is outside of your comfort zone and just not enjoying it. Hopefully, your next book is a better read.

      Hey! Ah sucks when one of your favorite books does not gel well with someone else. The cover of the book is just so beautiful, I really wanted to love it just because of it!

      What would be another good Magical Realism book I could try instead?

Lets Chat! :)
