Night Circus

“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” – Oscar Wilde (as quoted in Part One of The Night Circus)

Le Cirque des Reves is a magical, mystical place. One moment there, gone the next, it offers its visitors a glimpse of magic. Contained within this magical realm are Celia and Marco, who are bound by their own masters in a contest. The magic created becomes more and more complex, the players are swept up along with their companions on the way.

Told in present tense, this book is haunting and beautiful and it echoed for a while. I couldn’t seem to pick up anything else after I read it, so I waited a few days until I could settle down and read something new. Something different. When what I really wanted was to go to the Night Circus again. This is a seriously beautiful, haunting story. I want to write like this when I grow up.
