What I'm reading...



I am literally just a few pages into this book but I can't stop thinking about it! I saw somebody tweet an image of this and decided to look it up as it has been a while since I have read a good book. I ordered it that night, began reading it a couple of nights ago and I feel like I am hooked! Even though I am so close to the beginning, I can already tell it is going to 'dazzling' and 'enchanting' just like the quotes on the cover suggest. Here's the synopsis...

"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. 
It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. 
The black sign, painted in white letters that hangs upon the gates, reads: 
Opens at Nightfall Closes at Dawn. 
As the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. 
When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears. 
Le Cirque des Reves. The Circus of Dreams. 
Now the circus is open. Now you may enter."

  1. I've seen this book so many times when I'm out and about and I know it's only a matter of time until I buy it. It has one of those covers that just draws you in doesn't it. Think I'll read a few reviews on it and maybe buy it as a Christmas gift to myself, I'd be interested to see what you think when you've finished it :)

  2. Bought this as a birthday gift for my friend. Although the cover and synopsis are different from yours, they both are very intriguing. So intriguing, I'm having second thoughts of giving it to my friend. Ha! Will probably borrow it after she has read it.
