“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 Night Circus
I’ve just finished reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and I really enjoyed it. I first read about this book in the British edition of Marie Claire as I waited at Heathrow Airport for a flight home. It took a while, but I finally received it after being something like 120th in line on my library’s wait list.
I’ve read some mixed reviews but I for one thought that the book was pretty magical. With all of the vivid descriptions of the various circus tents, objects, colors and even smells practically jump off the page. This is a fantastical story about love, challenges and believing in magic. It makes you feel like almost anything can happen. I definitely recommend this book for any dreamers out there! And here are some images I thought really capture the essence of The Night Circus:
