“Waiting On” Wednesday {4}

Posted June 15, 2011 by Asheley in Uncategorized / 4 Comments

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that gives us a chance to highlight upcoming releases that we are drooling over…
My choice for this week is:
The Night Circus
by Erin Morgenstern
release date: September 13, 2011

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

I am absolutely in love with the cover of this book. It is stunning. And the story looks so thrilling. I haven’t been able to get my hands on an advanced copy and I’m having a really hard time being patient for this book…it is way high at the top of my TBR list.

  1. I love the cover of this book as well! And the concept seems interesting. The concept of "dark" circuses is mildly fascinating in its own right.
