Hi all, the next book is "The Night Circus" by American author Erin Morgenstern.
This 2011 fantasy novel was written from NaNoWriMo, and has non-linear narrative. The mysterious synopsis is below:
"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. The black sign, painted in white letters that hangs upon the gates, reads: Opens at Nightfall, Closes at Dawn.
As the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears. Le Cirque des Reves. The Circus of Dreams. Now the circus is open. Now you may enter. "
The sequel to this book, The Starless Sea, will be published soon and a film adaption is being produced by Lionsgate.
Meeting at Pearsons, at the carpeted area on the left as ever. All welcome, even if you haven't read the book!
