The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway – a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love – a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.


 I don’t care what people say because I know this specific book has a lot of mixed reviews, but the cover is so intriguing to me, and I am still shocked I haven’t picked this book up in the past.

  1. Completely agree with what you’re saying about The Night Circus! I heard mixed things about it already, but I noticed that it’s mostly because people expect a brilliant plot, while I fell in love with The Night Circus because of the beautiful and descriptive writing. Guess it depends on what you’re looking for in this book. 🙂 Hope you end up loving it though! [And if not, so be it. We’re entitled to have our own opinions, haha.]

    1. This is very true. I’m actually in the same position as you. I’ll enjoy a book that has beautiful writing more than the plot, so hopefully I’ll love it no matter what whenever I get my hands on it.
