WOW: The Night Circus

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.  This weekly meme features novels for which we are anxiously awaiting and want to share with others so they don't miss out.  It is amazing the number of books I have added to my wish list because of this weekly feature.

Also, please be patient with me while I play with some features on my blog, like the Amazon Features.  I promise the playing won't last long.

The Night Circus
by Erin Morgenstern
Release Date: September 13, 2011

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, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.


  1. Oh I can't wait to read this as well!

  2. I can't wait to read this, either! I just pre-ordered it on Amazon.

  3. Great review! This book sounds fantastic, and I'm so glad to see you loved it since I'll be reading it soon. I don't think I've read about a circus before, but it looks like I'm in for a treat.
