Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern How could I pass this up, it being a Nanowrimo novel and everything? It's hard to come by published nano books, not to mention​ successful​ nanowrimos, so I was psyched.I was not disappointed. This book was brilliant, the descriptions were beautiful, especially that of the circus--I applaud all the originality and brilliance that was poured into the design of Le Cirque des Rêves.The romance between Celia and Marco was scorching, just the level I want my romance at. Morgenstern did not disappoint at any angle of this book. It's nothing I thought it would be, nothing I hoped it would be, but it is so, so much more.However, I doubt you'll like it if action is the primary thing you look for in novels. This would not be an action movie and I'm not sorry for it. It's a prime example of what literary fiction should be. I eagerly await another book by the lovely Erin Morgenstern.
