The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

I really enjoyed this imaginative book. Very intricate and unique world building. The ending hints that there could be further books with these characters in the near future. I hope so, in the mean time I will read her other books.

Bloody January by Alan Parks


I like Alan Parks--especially since he is writing a series of crime novels "by the month". I like Scottish noir and Harry McCoy to so I will definitely keep reading.

Girl 4 (Detective Inspector January David #1) by Will Carver


For my January 2021 read I found myself plowing straight through all three books in Will Carver's -Detective Inspector January David triology...for those of you who also lived through the horror show of early January 2021 in America you will appreciate the need for very distracting reading. 



Dead Set (Detective Inspector January David #3) by Will Carver


I very much enjoyed this series and love the writing style of Will Carver--and English author that deserves a bigger audience in the USA. My only quibble is that I question the pull of a women to get a psychopath do her bidding. I look forward to reading there are rumors that January is coming back.

Jane Doe January by Emily Winslow


I was mesmerized by this book set in my home town of Pittsburgh, PA-- even though I do not like think of women getting raped here. What I liked best was the author's message. Sometimes you don't perhaps get the full justice you deserve but sometimes you get enough to fill in the cracks. 


One of my reading projects is known as Book of the Month Club where my goal is to read a book with that particular month in the title for as long as the books hold out. There is a category for each month as it makes things cleaner.
