I just finished THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern and wanted to post while the images from the book were still in my head. This debut novel is filled lyrical descriptions of darkness and dazzling light, much like the black and white-striped tents of the amazing circus. Magic permeates this tale of lovers thrown together yet kept apart by the nocturnal circus. Initially when I started reading this book, I felt that too much time was spent describing fabulous acts and characters, but by the time I was near the end, the pace seemed just right. 4 Elves - Highly Recommended
