Erin Morgenstern's debut novel the Night Circus won the literary lottery warranting a huge marketing push, 7 figure advance and snatched up movie rights. Did I mention she's 33 and this book got it's start during NaNoWriMo? Damn, if that's not reason enough to start sharpening your pencils now.

All of this however is not to say it isn't an utterly fantastic book. Forget the comparisons to Potter, this is the rightful heir to the fantastic Time Traveller's Wife. Which is to say it's a captivating story of tempest tossed love.

What I absolutely loved however was her willingness to talk with the music blog largehearted boy to offer up her personal music playlist to accompany the book.

Do yourself a favor and read the opening with her suggestion of Moby's "A Seated Night". It sets the tone for the book beautifully. A stunning read that speaks to Morgenstern's past life as a graphic artist.
