Cirque Du Freak
Cirque Du Freak | Darren Shan
18 posts | 82 read | 12 to read
Soon to be a major motion picture based on the three books in the Cirque Du Freak series, these books feature new cover images. Darren Shan is an ordinary schoolboy who enjoys hanging out with his three best friends. Then one day they stumble across an invitation to visit the Cirque Du Freak, a mysterious freak show. As if by destiny, Darren wins a ticket, and what follows is his horrifying descent into the dark and bloody world of vampires.

I've read the Cirque du Freak series, and thought it was really good, so I'm hoping this is as good as the book🥴

Bedtime reading with the cat, a giant teddy bear and my little reader. We started this one tonight and I hope it won't be too spooky for her. 👻🧛‍♂️👀

LibrarianRyan Hummm. Interesting choice. The movies is pg. the book May be more pg13. But way more aprocable than his Demonita series. If you haven‘t seen the movie. Don‘t. 3mo
Mynameisacolour @librarianryan I have not seen the movie. Thanks for the warning. 3mo

One of the first book series I ever read and really got me into reading I have always considered this to be one of my all time favourite series even though it‘s been almost ten years since reading this and I barely remember any of it, thought it‘s about time for a reread, nervous as to how I will find it at age 21 in comparison to 12 year old me🤞hopefully it holds up well.

I loved spooky books when I was younger. My favorite of which was the Cirque du Freak novels! Teen boy becomes a vampire‘s assistant at a traveling freak show and it just escalates from there. Highly underrated in my opinion. @callielafleur #clearingtheshelves2

callielafleur I didn't know this was a book! I've seen the movie and really enjoyed it. I'll have to look for this! 1y
RainyDayReading @callielafleur Yep! I think there‘s actually 11 or 12 books in the series but they‘re all super small. I‘m in the process of collecting them all again xD 1y
overtheedge I loved this series too. 1y

Mehso-so

Meh, I watch the movie on Netflix which is what prompted me to read this book. And I guess because I already knew what was going to happen, I was kind of bored with this book. It was interesting to get the details of how he was in the coffin and his friend in the hospital and to see the differences between the book and the movie. But I can't really say I enjoyed this until maybe I've read more books in the series.

Life‘s a bit tiring at the moment and I‘ve been feeling jaded and a bit down lately... I also didn‘t feel like reading much. But today the sun was finally out again which made everything else seem brighter as well and I‘ve started this super quick and easy read to save me from a reading slump and I think it works😊

Cinfhen Hope you have many more sunny days ahead ❤️ 2y
ju.ca.no @Cinfhen thank you😘 2y

As I found this box of 12 books for only 30€, I just had to buy it 😊 I'm expecting them to be read really quickly, and they seem like the right books at the moment, where I have to read tons of complicated texts for University😴
Also, thanks for your input @SpeculativeFemale 😊

GypsyKat How fun! 2y

Has anyone here heard of that series or read it and can tell me if it is worth reading?

SpeculativeFemale I read the first book of the series years ago. I don't remember much about it, but I do remember liking it enough to be disappointed I couldn't seem to get my hands on the rest of the books at the time. 2y
ju.ca.no @SpeculativeFemale oh okay good to know😊 I guess I'm gonna give it a try then😊 2y

I thought this series of books had an excellent scare factor for the young-uns. It definitely freaked me out. #allhallowsread

About half way through I was sure that I wouldn't want to read any more of this series, but by the end I was totally engaged & am now excited to read the next book! It is very Bradbury-esque, & I mean that as a high compliment! I am totally in love with the characters & the story itself has so much possibility for the sequels!!

Darren and his best friend Steve visit a traveling freak show. Steve believes a performer, Crepsley, is a vampire. Steve talks to Crepsley and asks to become a vampire. Crepsley initially refuses but is talked into testing Steve's blood, that he spits out telling Steve he has bad blood. Steve furiously swears revenge and leaves.

Loved this series when I was younger.
🌟🌟🌟🌟4/5 stars. I never finished it cause there's so many books😳

pppooraikul Completely in love with this series! ❤️❤️ 3y
Bookworm54 I love this series! I got them in volumes, so there are just 4 massive books. Definitely worth reading the full series if you get chance! :) 3y

One of my all time favorites!! I've read it multiple times but can never get enough of Mr. Crepsley! Re-reading this reminds me of my time spent in New Orleans - a place with lots of vampire lore.
