The Night Circus is a book for people who long to wrap themselves in beautiful prose, skip through time as though it were a deck of cards in constant shuffle, and kiss in the rain. It's 400 pages of lush descriptions and hope and heartache. It's a girl having her fingertips sliced open one by one and a boy who is plucked from an orphanage to complement and compete against her. It's redheaded twins who see the future and the past and a boy who sits in a tree and dreams of the day the circus will return.

It is, in a word, magical. Other words would be spellbinding, dizzying, and enchanting. Five stars were not enough.

“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

“The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.”

“Have you tried the cinnamon things?" Poppet asks. "They're rather new. What are they called, Widge?"

"Fantastically delicious cinnamon things?”
