Waiting on Wednesday 4: Night Circus

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: Night Circus
Publisher: Doubleday
Author: Erin Morgenstern
Publication Date: September 13, 2011


I am actually really really excited for this book to come out! The plot sounds really interesting. I have never read any books about a circus, so this one should be a good read! The cover is really pretty too! I love the black and the red and white color combos. Can't wait to pick this one up in September!


 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 RĂªves, 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.

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

  2. I got this one too and it sounds like a really different kind of story, sort of creepy and mysterious. I can't wait to get time to dig into it. A great choice, Sarah!

  10. I also haven't read any books about the circus. I've seen this one on quite a few blogs. I really like the intertwining of magic and darkness and mystery as all must stay in balance. Sounds incredibly promising & is on my to-read pile :). And as you also said... that cover is gorgeous!
