The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The premise – A secret duel between two illusionists. They have been training for this competition since they were children. Little do they know, only one can make it out alive.
And where would such a dual take place? Why yes, in a magical circus that arrives without warning and is only open at night. Le Cirque des Rêves – The Circus of Dreams.
A soulful book about dedication, creativity, love, and of course, magic.
This is a dark book that pulls on your heart strings. It’s not for everyone, but if you like dark and magical (on the brink of fantasy), you might want to give this one a try. Of course, if you aren’t sure, you can still give it a try. Worst case you just set it aside if you decide it’s not your thing.
