15. Erin Morgenstern – The Night Circus (2011)     

The Night Circus UK

Another workmate recommendation. The Night Circus tells the story about two “magicians” in a “duel” which slowly unravels over time, revolving around an intriguing circus which is very different from any other. You’ll notice the quotes in the last sentence, they are there because these are definitely not conventional magicians and they are most certainly not in a normal duel. The book is very dream like and describes wonderful things in such detail that its almost like you’re having the dream yourself.

Overall the book was a very satisfying read and was extremely well written. I’d definitely recommend it and I’ll be keeping an eye out for any more books Erin Morgenstern writes (it seems this is her first.)
