Robyn (FailFish) I'm really looking forward to this, but I'm not usually a big historical fiction person - thanks for letting us know what to expect!

Amy Imogene Reads I'm glad! I was in your boat - I almost never read historical fiction. I can say the fantasy elements keep me invested despite my struggles, so I hope you like it too!


Lucy Jane Reads So it’s all letters and excerpts?


message 4: by Amy (new)

Amy Imogene Reads Not exactly—it’s the narrative style where January is talking to you, the audience, but it’s not actually a letter format or feel. You could pass it off as a really distinctive narrative voice. And then spliced between that narrative is a book that reads like a book talking to January/the audience, complete with oral history vibes. Does that make sense?


Jessica | Booked J Ooh, I'm totally intrigued!

Amy Imogene Reads It really is!! Especially if you like both historical fiction and fantasy together 😊

Shaina It reminds me or sounds like Neverwhere; Neil Gaiman. I wonder if that is just me. I haven’t read the other two you mentioned, but they are on my tbr!
I’m excited for you and your ARC. Best of luck!

Hmmmmm that is an interesting comparison...Neverwhere is definitely a darker story, with more grit and less whimsy than this one. Although, the pacing is really similar--both Neverwhere and January take their time and involve the idea of magical places spliced with our real world. Thank you though! 😊

Michelle Thank you for this fabulous review. I have been very hesitant to pick this up. I think I'm going to give it a try, but my expectations are low since I struggle with slower paced books sometimes. Thanks, Amy!

Thank you! Yes, then I'd say definitely manage your initial expectations--I also struggle with slower paced books so I completely understand. It was rewarding by the time I hit the 60% mark, but up until then I had a really hard time accepting the story's pacing for what it was and didn't understand why the author was conveying the story in this way. I hope you like it, and can't wait to hear what you thought!
