My Future Fix Pick
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Publisher: Doubleday
Publication Date: September 13, 2011
Pages: 400

 (From Goodreads)
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 read about The Night Circus while looking at another bloggers WOW. I immediately went to my wishlist and added it. It sounds like an adventure and magical elements, mixed with some boy and girl lip action. Whoo! Put it into a circus setting, and it is a whole new world for me. I can't wait to explore!

What are you waiting for this week??
