Book Beginning: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

A YA novel that came out some years ago which I am just now reading, an ebook borrow from the library. This is one novel with magic that I don't mind reading.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, published 2011 b DoubleDay
Welcome to Le Cirque des Rêves. 
Beyond the smoke and mirrors, however, a fierce competition is under way--a contest between two young illusionists, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood to compete in a "game" to which they have been irrevocably bound by their mercurial masters (publisher)
The circus arrives without warning. 
No announcement precedes it, no paper notices on downtown posts or billboards, no mentions or advertisements in local newspapers. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. 
Have you read this one?

I read this book and LOVED it. The cover was a little different though - same colours, but a different picture. Hope you enjoy, Here's Dead in the Water by Irna van Zyl, which I'll be reading this weekend.

I haven't read it, but remember eyeing it when it came out and wondering. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “I’VE GOT SAND IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES”

YOur book title makes me think of the beach. Too bad they almost all have stormy weather right now.

I'm curious about this book. The opening definitely makes me curious about this circus, and I'd keep reading to find out more.
My Friday post features BAREFOOT AT SUNSET.

I have not read this but I have heard a lot about it and I would like to.

I really like that beginning. It seems whimsical and mysterious and would lead me to want to read more.

I have the ebook from the library, Brian, and would oroba ly read it faster if I had the paper version!
