πŸŽͺ The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

βš—οΈ Le Cirque des RΓͺves arrives without warning. The black-and-white tents, full of breathtaking amazement, are the stage of Celia and Marco, two young magicians who have been trained since their childhood to compete against each other. The game they are playing is made of blurred rules, and it involves not just the two of them, but all the patrons of the circus.

β™₯️ I liked:⁠

πŸŽͺ The circus. There are tents, performers and acrobats yes, but this is the only thing in common with a normal circus. It’s a place where the real magic is passed off as an illusion so that people won’t be scared of it.
✍️ How it’s written. The prose is unique, so rich, vivid and refined. The author’s imagination created a magic world and her words shaped it in such an elegant manner… reading the book is like walking on a cloud.
πŸ‘§ The characters. I liked all of them. Celia ad Marco, of course, but also Poppet, Widget, Bailey, Isobel, the patrons, the RΓͺveurs. I couldn’t figure out how Bailey would fit in the story, but I knew that, sooner or later, he would become a fundamental part of it.
πŸ‘¦ Widget’s gift. His sister can see the future, but he can shape it telling stories. “π’΄π‘œπ“Š π“‚π’Άπ“Ž 𝓉𝑒𝓁𝓁 𝒢 𝓉𝒢𝓁𝑒 𝓉𝒽𝒢𝓉 π“‰π’Άπ“€π‘’π“ˆ π“Šπ“… π“‡π‘’π“ˆπ’Ύπ’Ήπ‘’π“ƒπ’Έπ‘’ 𝒾𝓃 π“ˆπ‘œπ“‚π‘’π‘œπ“ƒπ‘’’π“ˆ π“ˆπ‘œπ“Šπ“ (…).

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5⁠ This book has been on my TBR for so long, and I am glad I finally read it. I think The Starless Sea is still my favourite, but this is incredible as well. It’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but, after all, only who truly believes in magic can see it.
