The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern ~ Book Review!

The long-overdue book review is here! I read this a few months back and never got around to writing the review I also needed a bit to fully know my feelings on the book. I think I am read now so... here we go!

Synopsis (via Goodreads): The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night. 

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands. 

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus performers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead. 

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.


Wow! This book is so complicated but the writing was gorgeous! I listened to the audiobook and I think it was the way to go because I enjoyed the person who read the story and all of the descriptions are better heard than read physically. I loved the premise and the characters were awesome! The writing was beautiful and elegant and overall it was an amazing experience to read this book!

So long,

Love and Theater Cover Reveal

So my novel, Love and Theater. Here is the cover, synopsis, an aesthetic I made for the story, and another sneak peek to get you excited!
I did this with my friend Noel who is also doing a cover reveal. Go check her out...

Here is the synopsis:
Rose Adary is auditioning for the role of Anastasia in her school musical. When the nerve-wracking audition is over she accidentally trips and falls into the arms of Liam, the new handsome student at Banel Junior High School. Her well-organized lifestyle might as well have turned upside down when she discovers her mom is pregnant with twins and her little brother Al is in a car accident with his leg needing to be sawed off. Her feelings for Liam are just another problem.  
This story shows the family struggles that come from unfortunate accidents and the need to stay true to your family.
