The Night Circus
The Night Circus | 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 Rves, and it is only open at night. But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underwaya 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 lovea 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. Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

An interesting story with many mysteries. My only problem with the book was the constant skipping back and forth in time. I understand that it is important for the story and give us answer to many questions. I just don't like that type of writing.

With that aside, the book is worth it.

I‘ll admit that there‘s some years since I read this book, but there must be some #TarotReading at the circus, right?

#ScreamathonPhotoChallenge @4thhouseontheleft

Reggie Yes, the main character who is a guy shacks up with the tarot card reader until he realizes he‘s in love with the other main character, who he‘s been pitted against. And after the tarot card reader is left she unbinds the ribbon that had held the circus together. I was thinking of this for this post. Thanks for doing it. 2w

“The circus looks abandoned and empty. But you think perhaps you can smell caramel wafting through the evening breeze, beneath the crisp scent of the autumn leaves. A subtle sweetness at the edges of the cold.”

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I honestly didn't like it at first, and I kept putting it down because the first 100 pages felt very slow to me. But I'm glad I picked it up again because I devoured the last 400 pages. This was such a well written, fun, unique, magical story. But with dark enough elements to keep it from getting cheesy. Definitely worth the hype! I can't wait to read her next box, coming out in November!

ShelfRighteous I loved this one too🤩 I wish I can experience it all over again🎪 9h
CaliforniaCay @ShelfRighteous I know what you mean! Even though I just read it I already wish I can relive it. I hope a movie comes out soon, I feel like this has the potential to be an amazing adaptation ❤ 9h
ShelfRighteous @CaliforniaCay Yes but like most cases I dont think they can do justice to it🙈 Books are way better😬 9h

This was a mixed bag for me. There were parts I really enjoyed and parts I found myself skimming through. I loved the magical setting. The writing was unquestionably beautiful in its description, creating an enchantingly whimsical atmosphere. The concept was unique, the story imaginative and I appreciated the visualization the lush descriptions created but the story lacked plot development, was slowly paced and the characters felt flat. Just ok.

Beautiful imagery, but I think it would better on paper than on audio. It was hard for me to keep track of time jumps while listening.

Louise I can imagine that this book could get confusing on audio! The print version is also challenging in some respects, but it does eventually come together for the reader. My lasting memory, though, is the mood of the book. 1mo

Its nothing like I have ever read before. Full of quotable sentences, TNC is a story of 2 competitors who fall in love. I'll admit that the book lacks plot, but d author has managed to make it up by her beautiful and detailed writing. You can really imagine the scenes from the book as you read it. Recommended for anyone who needs a dose of magic and love in their lives. If storytelling is the real magic in this world, Erin is a powerful magician!

I had heard a lot about this one and all the hype was not wrong. I'm almost 60% thru with this one and I love all the details the author has managed to capture. It's so hard to believe it was first written for a NaNoWriMo. Eagerly waiting to finish this one🤩🎪❤

1. I‘m picky about them. The Walking Dead is such a huge part of the zeitgeist I‘m a little fatigued on zombies 🧟‍♀️
2. Vampires 🧛🏼‍♀️
3. Psychological thrillers for sure 🧠
4. Psycho, The Birds, 28 Days Later, Cabin in the Woods 🔪
5. I don‘t like regular ol‘ Reese‘s cups. Smaller, bigger, differently shaped, with other stuff in them... all great. The plain, normal sized ones don‘t work for me. It‘s weird 🤷🏻‍♀️

bullbunny So not feeling the walking dead zombies? Do you like wine? 2mo
KatieDid927 @bullbunny Yeah Walking Deaded out. The book I‘m reading now actually does have zombies and I like it but I can‘t help but compare. I do really like post-apocalyptic stories though. That‘s my fave part of zombie stories. And yes I love wine! Dry over sweet. 2mo

Maybe I missed something in the text, but why does Jim Dale read the Murray twins having thick Irish accents? Even if their parents are Irish, they were raised in such an eclectic environment by so many people, they should have a much more ambiguous accent. #audiobook #pedantry
