    1. Contains some minor spoilers.I disliked this book, which means I ought to rate it one star, but it is not as awful as my one star shelf. One star books have to really repulse me to get that rating. The only redeeming thing about The Night Circus is that I didn't feel the one star compulsion to start a bonfire so I could properly dispose of it, hence two stars, but in this case it does not mean I enjoyed the book at all.From the summary: "But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway [...]

    2. Five Things About THE NIGHT CIRCUS.Ordinarily when I do my recommendations, I do a “five reasons to read _____,” but I think opinions will be so divided on THE NIGHT CIRCUS that I think “things about” will be more useful.1. This novel is not what it says it is. Well, back page copy is always a weird thing anyway, as it’s not written by the author. And a weirder thing because it is essentially a glamour shot of the novel. It is not a lie. But it isn’t really what the novel looks like [...]

    3. The Night Circus will be a 5-star book for a certain reader. This reader likes a lot of descriptions, doesn't mind a very slow story and has a soft spot for circuses. I am not that reader. I prefer imagery to complement a plot rather than substitute it.The plot summary of The Night Circus promised many enticing things, but delivered, in my opinion, only on one - lush imagery of a mysterious circus that was a collaborative creation of two rivaling magicians. The book was good 80% description of v [...]

    4. The prose sparkles, and the story itself is a feat of magical acrobatics. It's a hard book to summarize, but basically two ancient magicians set their two best pupils against one another in a magical contest. Its venue? A mysterious circus that only appears at night. The only problem: the contestants don't really know the rules, or how victory is determined. And when the contestants start falling in love which each other, things get complicated.

    5. Aw hell, I'm going to rate this 4.5 stars. I can't resist this book was so freaking good. I don't normally change my ratings, so don't expect this TOO often. My feelings are so conflicted about this book. I don't know whether to immortalize it for all eternity in a frame on my wall, or throw it into the fire. So, how the hell am I supposed to rate this book? A million stars, one star, 837 stars, what? In the end I did some crazy, overly complicated math that really makes so sense in my head, and [...]

    6. If I could trade places with anyone in the world, it’d be with someone experiencing this book for the first time.I feel like my life is just a series of intense obsessions because I'm pretty sure this book has just become one of my defining personality traits. I've stayed up reading it until the early hours of the misty morning, rugged up so tight in the story even my soul felt warm. My heart is literally swelling with how much I love this story, I wish I could inject it into my blood stream, [...]

    7. Rating: 6* of fiveSometimes, some books just don't lend themselves to an analytical, opinionated review. I'm reluctant to do that kind of review here and now because the experience of reading The Night Circus was like smelling a magnolia blossomrfect, sweet, rich, satisfying a need I didn't know I had until it was metbut to examine it, to handle it, even gently, risks that somehow the magical smooth gorgeously textured vessel of chastely erotic pleasure that this book is will let it begin, inexo [...]

    8. shrug. yeah, i had a good time reading this book. i got really swept away in its atmosphere, and it didn't disappoint me because i didn't go into it thinking it was going to be a masterwork of literature, explaining the human condition and changing the way i saw myself and my relationships in the future. it presented itself as a fantasy novel about a magical victorian circus and that's exactly what it gave me. i think it is most successful in terms of its mood and its atmosphere. this is not a n [...]

    9. Wedding cakes are typically the prettiest cakes, but they are almost never the tastiest cakes. I am not a cake expert (can I be one though? Is that a thing I can be?), but it seems to me that the tools necessary to make a cake exceptionally pretty -- a vat of fondant, to start -- also contribute to the cake not tasting all that good (unless you somehow really like fondant, which is incorrect).Don't misunderstand me, I have no issue with cake. The right decorations, the right frosting (buttercrea [...]

    10. As a young girl, Celia Bowen is delivered to the father she never knew, a world famous magician whose secret is that his show is genuine magic - not illusions. He teaches Celia to manipulate the world in the same way so that she can compete in a high-stakes game against Marco, an orphan similarly trained by her father's nemesis. The arena for this game is an elaborate, surreal circus. Neither Celia nor Marco knows the extent of the game, nor their opponent, until they have fallen in love with ea [...]

    11. Reread: 2018Maybe more like a 2.5/5?I apparently enjoyed the audiobook much more because this time around I was really into it (and I remembered basically nothing from my original read, or listen rather) but then I got to the middle and I completely lost steam. I didn’t connect with it in the way I had wanted to and while there were some aspects I found very interesting, for the most part I felt like I was constantly waiting for more (which seems to be the point of the book). Just not for me a [...]

    12. “How can I excel at a game when you refuse to tell me the rules?”I guess “The Night Circus” is one of those books that make it especially hard to write a proper review and if I’m entirely honest I have to admit that I don’t even know where to start. It was unlike any other book I’ve ever read and therefore the usual structure of my reviews just doesn’t seem to be appropriate, let alone to fit. ”I would have written you, myself, if I could put down in words everything I want to [...]

    13. 4.5⭐️So intricate. So complicated. So atmospheric. I read this a few months back but I never really wrote anything, save for the six words above. Well, I just found what I wrote in one of my folders, so here.Alright, let me start off by saying that this book was magic. Simple as that. Seriously, the writing?? Experience it, my friends. Just experience it for your selves. Furthermore, this is a book you have to read twice to really comprehend and appreciate the magic behind it – never had I [...]

    14. Some books touch your soul in unexpected ways. I’ve never been to a circus nor have I ever had a wish to go to one. But after reading this I want to go to one. Admittedly, this is plain folly because a circus this beautiful and enchanting could never be reality; it’s simply too wonderful, and could only ever exist amongst the pages of a magnificently written book. Real circuses are horrible places that are full of cruelty, animal exploitation and vile entertainment. What I mean to say is tha [...]

    15. This book had so much potential. The world that Morgenstern created is so exquisite that it should have been easy for her to spin a good story. The Night Circus could have been a story of intrigue and manipulation. It could have been a heartfelt romance. If Moregenstern wanted to, The Night Circus could even have been a coming of age story with a thoughtful message about growing up and the choices we make. Instead, the final product is a badly written soap opera. The main characters, Marco and C [...]

    16. Buddy reading this book with my favorite Princess Celeste2.5/5 StarsThere will be rants on this review, if you're easily offended I recommend you to stay away from continuing.I really wish I could rate this higher but if you heard about this book already, you probably know there have been a lot of mixed reviews on it. It’s either you really love it or you really hate it. Sadly, I’m one of those closer to hating it.Before you read this book, I must state two things. 1 NOT TRUST THE BLURB & [...]

    17. Sometimes I want chocolate. And sometimes I want the chocolate experience. I'm as guilty as the next person of the occasional vending machine pick-up for when I need those quick fixes. But then there's the slow anticipation. Take last week, for instance. It had been a few days since the last time. As I waited in line for my latte, my eyes happened to linger on a cute little cupcake, dark velvety goodness. Short, stacked, with a swirl of fluffy milk chocolate frosting. I resisted temptation, but [...]

    18. Find me on Instagram & Twitter!❝When the final bulb pops alight, and the smoke and sparks dissipate, it is finally legible, this elaborate incandescent sign. Leaning to your left to gain a better view, you can see that it reads:Le Cirque des RêvesSome in the crowd smile knowingly, while other frown and look questioningly at their neighbors. A child near you tugs on her mother's sleeve, begging to know what it says.'The Circus of Dreams,' comes the reply.❞Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ½The Ni [...]

    19. This book was amazing! I loved it. Bought it in a charity shop. I am not usually a fan of books that involve magic. Some bits were a little cheesy.Loved the setting. Full of great quotes.I think I may have to re-read to go over it all again.Loved the characters but was more interested in other ones rather than the 2 main ones Celia & Marcus.

    20. i posted this review in case anyone needs a reminder that nothing is safe and death comes for all of us and life is just an endless cycle of suffering and disliking books you thought were your favorite.uh. find it here: emmareadstoomuch.wordpress-----------I did not care for this book, which has sat on my all time favorites shelf for two years, AT ALL.There’s instalove, because of course. Characters are either a) horrendous or b) flat or c) somehow both??? Every other sentence is actually two [...]

    22. If I had to describe this book in one word, that word would probably bewondrous. This story made me want to smile, frown, laugh, and curl up into a ball and cry. Try to imagine someone taking Carnivale, Somewhere in Time, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and The Prestige and mashing them all together into a poetic, stunning piece of fiction with a beautifully melancholic, bittersweet ending. It made me crave magical autumn nights spent in a circus that defies the conventional laws of the univers [...]

    23. I never expected to like this book. Just from the title I knew it wasn't for me, but so many people spoke highly of the book, so I read some reviews And my opinion remained the same. This wasn't for me. Nothing about it appealed to me, and so I had no interest in ever reading it. But, it was chosen for my bookclub, and so I read it. Technically. And now I am going to rant about why I wish I hadn't. In detail, which means there's gonna be spoilery stuff, probably. Here we go:I don't like reading [...]

    24. Holy. Crap. Excuse my language but holy crap is the only way I can accurately portray what I am thinking now that I am done this book. This is, without a doubt, my favourite book I've ever read. Ever. There is nothing that compares or even comes close to how I feel about this book. If I could choose one fictional world to live in, I would sacrifice Hogwarts to go to this circus.For the first time ever, I wrote a list of things I wanted to talk about in my review. I just don't want to forget anyt [...]

    25. This whole story is just really gorgeous. There's no other word for it. It's a bit slow-moving and the story can be rather elusive at times, but the book as a whole is so wonderful.I loved Bailey, Poppet, & Widget and the aesthetic of the circus! The circus itself felt like the main character, which was really neat. But I couldn’t even pin down exactly what the whole competition was until about 70% because it was unclear what the rules were or what they were even competing for:I confess, I [...]

    26. Gahhh, it’s been so long and I’m still completely mesmerized by this book !!(s) Night Circus is such a memorable read. Erin Morgenstern should be praised for her originality, style, and her passion. What a fricken legendIS BOOK WAS PERFECT (even though my library copy was all abused and had FRICKEN CHOCOLATE STAINS on it - i still gave it 5 stars do you see my commitment to this)- the story takes place over a long arc of time- so you get to see the characters from when they were children- an [...]

    27. I remember when I was a kid, my Dad took me to the Circus, a small traveling circus with a few shows and a fewer animals, a circus that was rare even then and not heard of now of days. I remember holding my Dad's hand as we walked through the huge big top tent and feeling something magical and rare falling over me.One show that I can clearly remember even years after is of a young woman, a Aerial silk performer as she made the silk fabric dance for her with ease and grace as it wrapped itself ar [...]

    28. I have quite honestly never had the pleasure of reading a more beautiful book. I want to go back to the beginning and read it all over again. I just.I have no words.

    29. "THE CIRCUS ARRIVES WITHOUT WARNING."A little bit of love, and a whole lot of magic. Are they making this into a movie yet?The Night Circus is a book which is quite difficult to summarise, but the main gist of the book is that two well experienced magicians pit their best student against each other and the events that follow. Everything about this book is so enchanting, the ribbons, the ravens and the rêveurs. Erin Morgenstern took me to a dreamlike world which I did not wish to leave. "Memorie [...]

    30. I've read this book three times now, and each time I love it more—far too much to ever write a proper review. 💗✨ reading this book is like sitting curled up on the couch in a cozy blanket, holding a mug of spiced hot chocolate between your fingers and listening to the sound of light rain on a tin roof as the laughter of someone you love filters through from the next room. this story is one of the purest forms of magic I've ever encountered in this world—it's full of mystery and warmth a [...]
