My current read! 🎪
It‘s a grey day outside. Washing‘s on, dishwashers on, laundry‘s folded, beds made, toddlers still asleep so I‘m going to sneak in a little reading before school pick up 😊 📕
Being on a misty beach with no horizon gave the right sort of atmosphere to read this book today. It was so lovely to escape my house and leave little Mr Covid (day 8 and still testing positive 🤪) and the gang at home
5am paw patrol and The Night Circus. Everybody‘s happy, we‘ll as happy as you can be when you are up before the sun in a Sunday morning #toddlerlife
I really liked this. It's slow paced but sometimes I like that. The language got a little flowery at times but as a whole was beautiful and imaginative. I especially loved how the two timelines finally meet and you fully understand what's happening. The plot unfolds SLOWLY. It's full of mysteries and begs of the reader to take your time, digest what you've read.
Not only is this one of my January #roll100 books but a friend said she recently read this and felt transported to another world… I could do with a bit of that this week! So next up is The Night Circus as my little poorly people make a puppet show in the background
It's one of my last lazy days - school starts Monday! I think this book is kind of perfect for me right now; I'm about 200 pages in and it's mostly been set-up but INTERESTING set-up. It's taking its time and I'm enjoying that, in this liminal space between holidays and classes.
Also, Minerva has become part of our holiday decor.
Beautifully written and creative!! I have had this book for a while but did not read it until now. Don‘t know why I held it off probably because of those praises and of this kind of genre not being my usual type.
It turns out this book indeed lives up to the hype and I like it!! Hopefully there would be a movie.
I got a sweet surprise gift from my aunt in the mail today. I love them! ❤️🖤🤍 🎪
This book was a beautifully written sorry. It's more about about magic than about circuses, as we know them today. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook but I think I would've preferred to read it because the words are transformative and when listening you have to pay close attention it may miss something vital. It took me 6 days to finish listening entirely but it was worth it.
11-3-21: My 110th finished book of 2021! Le Cirque des Rêves only opens at night. Behind the black and white tents there is a competition occurring between Celia and Marco, who have been training since childhood. This was a lovely book full of memorable characters and lots of fun magic. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ???#️⃣1️⃣1️⃣0️⃣
Wow! Thank you @Karisa for the lovely artwork on my #ans book! It is lovely and matches the rest of the cover and endpapers as well. It feels like the book came that way! 😍 The ticket bookmark is really cool too. I‘m getting vibes of Something Wicked This Way Comes and the carnival and am excited to read this one with your artwork and notes. 😊 Thank you for the dark chocolate too! Happy Halloween! 💕🎃
Cecil is never good enough for her father, she is controlled and binded to a competition with an unknown opponent. The rules are not communicated, the goal is unclear. The competition will last a lifetime unless Cecil finds a way out.
On a journey of self discovery she starts to understand that what looks like magic as a child, is manipulation as an adult. That dreams can turn into nightmares.
I was intrigued at the beginning of the book, got a little bored in the middle but liked the ending. So overall I give it a so so because it was unique and magical, but I honestly did not enjoy this one as much as I thought I would from reading all the favourable reviews.
My son has been playing with the filters on the iPad….I kinda like this one he took of me!

This was my second attempt at reading this book, I am SO HAPPY I came back to it! I loved it! There was not a battle as much as there was a game, so I would take the summary lightly. It read like a fairy-tale for adults and I was utterly captivated by the circus and beautiful descriptions. Very much a setting/plot-based novel.
👋🏻 Still here, still reading. Amid the 📦. 🙃🎉 A magical moving circus 🎪 full of black and white tents, a competition and a love story, all rolled into one. Intrigue and romance, adventure and interesting storytelling. And yet, amid all of this, although interesting, I wasn‘t 💯% there. 🤔 And I used to love the fantasy genre… 🤷🏻♀️ Still, glad I gave it a shot. #recentlyread #nospoilers #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks
I'm so glad my thoughts on this book met my expectations!
I had such a fun time reading this! I felt like I was at this gorgeous black and white themed circus and away from reality. It was a wonderful experience.
The slow buildup of suspense in this novel was key and I absolutely loved Baileys character like he was my little brother!!
Definitely sad the book ended... still. I finished it a month ago.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ would love to reread
Kitty was not super happy about having her picture taken this morning. I was super happy to have read this book though! It was very well written and plotted out. My only qualm was that the story wasn‘t in chronological order. I kept having to look back and figure out if this happened before that which pulled me out of the story some. Otherwise though, really really good.
A circus that is open only at night...a fierce magical competition where the competitors don‘t know the rules. It felt a bit like a mashup of Harry Potter & Hunger Games. Hmmm... I never would have read this book, but the audiobook is narrated by Jim Dale. Mr. Dale is AMAZING. I enjoyed this much more than I ever expected. Definitely a niche read/listen. If you like magic, this one‘s for you.
