Revisiting The Night Circus
October 13, 2014
Happily, I was wrong. It's BETTER this time around. The first time I read 'The Night Circus', I was in such a frenzy of what-happens-next, that I pretty much tore through it and I tried to slow myself down, but I just couldn't. And certain aspects of the story were a bit confusing to me, but instead of taking my time to fully digest what was happening, I just could NOT stop my bullet train hurtle to the end of this book.
Now I can control myself. I know what's going to happen (although I'm surprised at how many many details I totally forgot - I think I read this 3 years ago?), and I can just slowly enjoy myself.
I wrote a post on the book right after it came out and right after I read it, and it was before I knew how to cull pictures for clarity or make a collage in Picmonkey, so the resolution of the pictures I freely lifted from my Night Circus Pinterest board aren't really the best for displaying here on the blog. But they give you a VIBE and a general idea of what the mood of the book is all about, for those of you (are you insane??? go now and read it!) who might haven't read it yet. (seriously, is that even possible???)
It's one of the few wholly perfect book reading experiences I've ever had. Oh - pay attention to the dates in the chapter titles -- I didn't really the first time around and that led to some confusion on my part.
If you're looking for the perfect fall book, you found it! I'm not even remotely fooling. Save it for when you have some time, because you won't be able to focus on anything else until you're done.
