The Night Circus

Do you want to read a book that is hypnotic and captivating?

Then I highly recommend that The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, be the next book you read.

I spent the majority of this title not quite understanding what was going on – and loving every page of it!

Maybe that is the magic of this book.

Two contestants, Celia and Marco, are chosen because of their skills in illusion and magic. They are bound to a contest, unknowing of the rules, requirements and even each other. They only know that they must take on an opponent and the contest will take place when they are ready.

The stage is set in a magical black and white circus that arrives without notice.
Le Cirque des Réves, is a mulit-sensory delight for all attendees. But as the other circus performers become entangled in the contest – can love break the spell and save the day?

 The Night Circus is a must read and has a spot on my favorite books of 2015!

How do people find their favorite books? 
There are countless ways, but here is how I found one of mine.

I was sipping a morning cup of tea and scrolling through Pinterest. 
When I saw an Outlander pin and thought it looked readable, so I decided to put it on hold at the library.

Fast forward through the weekend, there are dishes and chaos everywhere but the book is finished, and I have an Outlander Obsessed pinterest board! 

This book is Amazing!

What is also amazing is that it was written in 1991 and it is still attracting readers. 

Here is a sum up of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.

Claire, an army nurse and lover of botanical herbs is the main character. She is on a second honeymoon with Frank, a professor and obsessed genealogist. They travel to the highlands in Scotland after WWII.

After watching a mysterious spectacle at Craigh Na Dune, Claire returns to the spot to gather a plant she saw there. Finding a magical portal, she travels through time to the 1700's.

Claire uses her skills as a nurse to aid an injured man after she is found in a desperate situation. This man, Jamie, will become the standard you will judge all others against, has secrets and a story of his own and befriends this Sassenach. 

Forced to wed to save Claire from a dangerous madman, their relationship is tested and strengthened and will make you believe in a love that can transcend time.

Go and pick up a copy of Outlander . You will be so glad that you did.
The story is full of good writing, wit, suspense, romance, drama, violence, love, friendship, with a dash of history and herbal wisdom to top it off.

Sip a cup of Oolong Tea (pg. 31 ) and travel through time with Claire to the highlands of Scotland.

This book is a Must Read – then watch the mini-series that Starz has produced. 🙂
