I’m not sure I can put into words how much I loved Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus - this may be my favorite read of the year! Magic, love, obligation, sacrifice. I can’t remember the last time I was so fully transported into another world. Everything came to life for me... the smells, the sights, the sounds. This novel is a feast for the senses. The story flipped back and forth among various perspectives and years which had the delightful effect of causing me to lose all track of time (in reality and in the story!).
I was lucky to see Erin at the New England Independent Booksellers Association conference last month as she discussed her long awaited second novel, The Starless Sea. We have copies on our shelf for all of you eagerly awaiting fans!
Many thanks to Todd Doughty and Ann Kingman from Penguin Random House for our advance copy of The Starless Sea!
