N is The Night Circus

We are drawn to magic. In stories, movies and dreams it awakens in us a sense of wonder. Imagine a circus open only at night, curated by two magicians locked in competition with one another. Their creations strive to be the most fantastic, beautiful, farcical or strange and always mysterious things visitors have ever seen.

Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus had me captivated. Her descriptions are just vivid enough to picture what she wants you to see and even smell, but vague enough to allow your imagination to fill in finer details. Filling in those details allows the reader to almost feel as if they too could be a reveur, if they could only find the Circus of Dreams.

Magical, beautiful, uplifting and heartbreaking, The Night Circus will have you spellbound from the first to last page.
