Escape to The Night Circus

I recently read an absolutely delightful book, The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern. It is one of those stories that titillate the brain and sends your senses into overdrive. The smells, sights, sounds and textures are vivid. It is a rather dark novel, but you will find yourself smiling all the way through as it casts a spell of enchantment over you. It is a clever, well-written and magical escape.
Celia, one of the main characters, calls their circus, “a wonder and comfort and mystery all together.”
WARNING: This is one of those books you never want to end⎯you will wish you could escape to The Night Circus.

Give yourself a break this holiday season⎯create some space and tap into the joy of reading. Give yourself permission⎯you owe it to yourself and happier holidays ahead.
