This book is by far the best book I have read in the past 5 years. Morgenstern has a way with words that puts you directly into the scene. There were points of the book where her descriptions of the scenes made me feel as though I was actually there! The twists and turns in the plot keep you enthralled in the novel. Normally I don't choose novels with fantasy aspects such as magic or witchery but this novel makes all that seems so real and possible! Normally I gift out my books after purchasing and reading but this one I kept to reread next year!

I completely agree. By far one of my favorite books. How can someone not dive head first into the detail and imagery. One of those books to frame and cherish!!

This was such a lovely book. I read it a couple of years ago and I absolutely adored it. The writing style is so beautiful to read and the characters are super interesting. I am definitely putting this book on my reread list because I want to experience the magic all over again!

I really can't say many negative things about The Night Circus. As potentially a depiction of a Rowling-esque interpretation of a fantasy/romance for young adults, I just enjoyed the pace and how illusory the characters felt at times. Celia Bowen, for example, never loses the luster of being the "child born with a gift that she can't see the significance of" arch-type, and yet you still feel like you're watching the ups and downs of her awareness play out by the chapter. You have a solid plot (and a challenging theme of a circus to keep engaging for the duration of the entire book), you have characters that come to life, and a palpable atmosphere whenever you know the circus is being brought back into the picture. Definitely recommended
