Suggested Reading: The Night Circus

Where do I start?  I absolutely love this book.  It’s been out a while, and I hear they’re doing a movie (JOY!).  But if you haven’t read it yet, then go and get a copy right now!  In my opinion, Erin Morgenstern is one of the very best new authors we have.

From the official site : “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.”

I’m getting chills all over again, just thinking about the subtlety, grace, and stunning beauty of this book.   There’s magicians and real magic, visual perfection, fascinating characters (the clock maker is my favorite, of course), midnight dinner parties, wonderful locations, intrigue, tarot, murder, gorgeous cafes — and all of it in black and white and red.

Seriously, go read it now!

Or, at least play the browser game.
