Book Review: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a book you read to escape. It’s a new world…a world full of magic and ice gardens and people with peculiar powers.

The book tells the story of two children, Celia and Marco, whose guardians put them up for an old, dangerous competition. They grow up competing against each other in this game of magic…creating what the rest of the world know as Cirque des Rêves…circus of dreams.

They meet each other as adults, and all hell breaks loose as the magic of the game is threatened by the magic of their mutual attraction to each other. As they fall for each other, they discover the nature of he competition, and it’s implications on them and all those related to the circus.

Their magic is transformed into love letters…a magical carousel, an ice garden, a pool of tears…and the game that was lethal to one becomes a death sentence to both.

Magic. Fantasy. Intelligence. Love.


Such an unusual read!

It truly is a book you would want to climb into and just live there. I found it in a “books you read to escape list”..and I did need an escape, so I read it.

It’s like time travel. Once the story really picks up, you forget the actual world in its entirety and dive into this story of love and strength and magic. Perfect.

Promise I’m not just a sappy girl gushing about a romance book. It really is good. You should check it out.

One of the best words I ever heard. Oh, what are men to rocks and mountains!

I long for a new adventure…

Quote: Tired

This book is a very creative piece of literature.

“I am tired of trying to hold things together that cannot be held. Trying to control what cannot be controlled. I am tired of denying myself what I want for fear of breaking things I cannot fix. They will break no matter what we do.”

-Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Sketch: who’s my favorite Disney princess??

you know it!

I actually liked Belle before Emma Watson decided to do Beauty and the Beast. Now I just like her more 🙂

Silence sometimes is the only mature response to idiotic remarks. Don’t you EVER think that I’m weak. Be warned.

Are you trying to understand?

“The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter – often an unconscious but still a faithful interpreter – in the eye.”

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
