Scarlett Dragna suena con asistir a la celebracion anual de Caraval, unos legendarios juegos que duran una semana y en los que la audiencia participa para ganar el Gran Premio. Caraval es magia, misterio y aventura. Y para Scarlett y su hermana representa la libertad y poder de huir de su estricto y cruel padre. Ahora Scar esta a punto de casarse con un hombre al que nunca ha visto y cree que su sueno nunca se cumplira. Justo dos semanas antes de la boda, recibe la ansiada invitacion a los juegos. Sin embargo, ahi nada sale como se espera: Legend, el Maestro de Caraval, secuestra a su hermana y Scar se vera obligada a entrar en un peligroso juego de amor, suenos, medias verdades y magia en el que nada es lo que parece. Real o no, solo tendra cinco noches para descifrar las pistas que conducen hacia su hermana, o esta desaparecera para siempre. Bienvenido, bienvenido a Caraval. Ganar significa la libertad. Perder, renunciar a todos tus suenos. Estas preparado? El juego ha empezado.

This book was really good. Great characters and awesome plot. The plot twists caught me off guard. Caraval was enchanting and I can't wait to read the sequel.

Happy Saturday!
I might just stay on the couch watching trash TV and reading all day. The machines are taking care of the bulk of the housework for me so I'm justified in my laziness 😂
But first....Grey's!!!

I will say this- I thought I knew what I was getting into when I started this book but I had no idea. It's every bit as spellbinding as it claims to be and showcases some of the strongest sibling bonds I've encountered in a book. My only qualm would be a spoiler I'll put in the comments. If you are looking for a bit of magic and illusion bordering on deception coupled with lush storytelling this is the book for you.

Confused_child_of_the_universe Oooh spoiler comment time! Haha I would just say I absolutely HATE the trope of the main character's most dearest people (her love interest and sister) getting killed in front of them only for them to come back to life 5 pages later. Yes I get the power of love and magic but I feel like it cheapens the death? Or maybe I've just grown up on the message that the dead are better off dead and it's best not to play with the ways of the universe. 8mo

This book keeps you hooked with the mesmerizing way it describes everything. Also with everything going on and not knowing if things are real or part of the game. The ending is definitely not what I expected! It leaves you wanting to know more. I‘ll definitely be reading the rest of the books.

This book is the reason why I‘m awake at nearly 4:30 am. It was utterly stunning & I spent the whole day deeply immersed in the world. The writing was gorgeous. The story was both thought-provoking & one that kept me on the edge of my seat. Just....UGH. I loved it so much I want to punch things 😂 I REALLY needed this after nearly 2 weeks of trying to slowly climb out of a Reading Slump. I hope the sequel is just as great.

mandi1082 I loved this one too. I don't understand why I haven't picked up the second ones🤷‍♀️ 9mo

My #TBR for #OwlCrateAThon #readathon is a bit ambitious, but I have plenty of catch-up reading to do.
.

?#ReadingChallenges:
.
.
? "Of Fire & Stars" is the unread #OwlCrate book I've had the longest
.
.
?"Sleepy Hallow," which was a bonus book from a past box, is the shortest unread Owl Crate book I have.

Let's see how many of these I can read in two weeks

I just couldn‘t get into this. Sad because I loved the premise and it seemed right up my alley. Maybe I‘ll try again sometime and see if it works better for me in a different mindset...

Enjoyed this enchanting read. Quite different and def pulls you into another world. Not quite sure how I feel about the sister, but still intriguing.

Reggie Lol, this is one of my only pans of the year. I hated myself for finishing this book. Not all books are for everyone, right? 11mo
R.L.Walker @Reggie I can see this not being a guy book for sure. My husband had no interest. I grew up in the carnival and write about it. So I wanted to see what it was about. There were parts I did not like, but enjoyed the premise. Yea, not all books are for everyone. 11mo

Got these sweet treats from this quarters #feedareader interested in this peanut butter chili 😂 I actually have some super peanut butter lovers in my house. Also my husband was stoked to see the oven mitt (he LOVES pizza and it‘s big enough he doesn‘t have to squeeze his hand in) maybe he will cook more 😉 thank you for all the goodies!!!

ferskner Yay I'm so glad you like it! The oven mitt made me laugh with your "feed a crew" suggestion from your form. ? I swear the chili is great! There's a dessert recipe in there too, but I wouldn't necessarily serve them together. ;) 13mo

This was an amazing story following two sisters on there journey to play carava. Stephanie Garber is an amazing author who paints beautiful scenery and has impeccable world building techniques. I truly felt like I was in the story, walking the roads, and experiencing the magic of caraval for myself.

Sometimes I save books because I want to read them so much but equally don't want to have finished them! That sounds crazy! This has been on my list since publication. Then I found a copy in a charity shop. I waited. And waited. So excited to have started it :) :) and hope it lives up to my hopes :)

I lost the email addresses for my fellow #lmpbc Group C members (from last round), so this is the only thing I knew to do. I haven‘t received my book back yet. Has anyone heard from @aroc ? I noticed that she hasn‘t been on in a couple of weeks, but I never saw that she received or read the book. Not sure what to do 🤷‍♀️ @suvata @abbsinwonderland @BookwormAHN I enjoyed the book club and would love to see what everyone thought about the book.

Just finished Caraval and I am so glad I read it! After seeing all of the hype, and then reading mixed reviews, I put it off for a while. I ended up really loving it and now I can‘t wait for the 2nd one. I think it would make an AMAZING film too.

Great book, really enjoyed the writing and felt for the characters. If you see this book and think "Oh, I'll read it next time." Don't its a fun romance fantasy, with never ending high stakes and questionable rewards. Plus, its fun to read during the work week.

I couldn‘t sleep last night, so I popped in my headphones and finished off this audiobook. Once again, @Tiffy_Reads has recommended another amazing book and I enjoyed it cover to cover.♥️ I‘ll be very busy today, and tomorrow, so this will most likely be my last #freakyfriday read in April. Although I do have a stack left that I‘ll most likely get to in June.
