The Night Circus


Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Genre: Fantasy
Pages: 490
Publisher: Vintage Books, Random House
Released: September 13 2011

My Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars


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 Rêves, and it is only open at night.


“The circus arrives without warning.”

That was how this book entered my life – without warning. 

Night Circus is a book I find it very difficult to express my feelings for; one minute I feel like my mind is being blown by the utter genius that is this book and the next I’m feeling totally overwhelmed by the story itself.

The Night Circus is a remarkable book, (beautifull written) and I loved the mystery of it all, the feeling that even after reaching the end there so many things still shrouded in a mysterious magical mist.

This is a book a reader should pick up without knowing anything about the plot. There is just something magical about having this story unfold before your eyes. Stay away from goodreads if you plan on reading this anytime soon. I won’t discuss much about the actual plot or characters in the story because like I stated above its better to go into this book blind. I will say I loved how this author mapped out the main characters over a long period of time, it just gave this story an extra something special.

I think the only problem I had with this book was that I went in with low expectations (I don’t know why, I just did) and I spent the entire book feeling very overwhelmed by the book. I don’t know if I’m making sense but this book was jam packed with so many details which where often times murky or just plain didn’t make sense. I’ll probably re-read this in the future and maybe I’ll end up loving it more because I know it’s a great book.

Of course I’m recommending this book; it’s full of magic and romance and so much more. You guys should bump it up your tbr’s if you haven’t read it already! Thanks for reading!

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I have seen the book around but hadn’t decided to read it. Your review has convinced me to at least check it and thanks for the tip on staying away from goodreads. Nice review.
