Wishlist Wednesday is a meme hosted by Pen to Paper, where bloggers get the chance to show which books they’ve added to their wishlist this week.
For a couple of weeks now, a friend of mine has been going on and on at me to read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. She’s not the only one either who’s told me to read it, and now that I’ve had a look at it, I really want to read it!
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.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance.
Firstly, look at the cover! It’s so pretty and interesting and sort of creepy. Secondly, this book sounds amazing. I mean, it has a circus that only opens at night, which is awesome, and it has magician duels. That just makes me want to buy it. Also, Celia and Marco, according to my friend, aren’t meant to fall in love because they’re meant to be working against each other and stuff and it sounds great. I just really want to read this book.
