"The circus arrives without warning" is possibly one of the best opening lines every written.

I found this to be one of the finest examples of magic realism since 100 Years of Solitude. I can still feel its magic sparkle in the atmosphere around me and am tempted to let myself fall back into the mysteries of The Night Circus. I felt, in fact, quite lost when it ended. I have every intention of reading it again. This is one of those books that reminds you that you have a heart... and an imagination... and not everything is what it seems...

"You will be fine," the fortune-teller says. "There may be decisions to make, and surprises in store. Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. The future is never set in stone, remember that." ~ The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
