“The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus
is the circus I have dreamed of running away to all my life!
Her descriptions of the dream spaces and their wonders are all in black and white with shades of silver to charcoal grey & just a hint of red for passion. A book that I couldn’t put down yet dreaded the dreaming coming to an end so have started reading it all over again to savour all the delicious details!

  1. That’s how I felt while reading this book.

    • Mo Crow says:

      one of my favourite parts of the book is when the two young magicians are sharing their illusions (especially the trip in the paper sailing boat on the black ink sea) it reminded me of this fabulous thought-
      ” In Madasgascar, large white “goat’s eye” beads can miraculously bring the wearer things that do not actually exist, ansd so are deemed particularly magical.”
      from page 101 of “Amulets : a world of secret powers, charms and magic” by Sheila Paine
      Thames & Hudson 2004
