The Night Circus weaves a tale of competition, love, and a young man's true calling throughout it's 500 pages. It is fantastical, yet grounded in reality, as you watch the creation of a larger than life circus become a magical exposition center for Celia and Marco to compete against one another in an unexplained, vague contest that they were bound to at six years old At the same time, you experience the circus through Bailey's eyes as an adolescent and how he and the circus change over time.

This is a phenomenal book. Erin Morgenstern takes the time to craft a story that appeals to all five senses - I have been thinking about the caramel popcorn descriptions in this book since last year. The Night Circus primarily takes place in Victorian England, a time period just far enough in the past to be unfamiliar. There is enough magic, romance, and suspense to push the plot forward while relishing in each vignette written about the characters. If you are thinking about picking this book up, do it! I highly recommend it and I can't wait for Morgenstern's next release.
