Right now I am feeding my starving artist with a cuppa red velvet tea. One word: NOM! The room is quiet, save for the constant whirring of the fan and a/c and the clicking of keys as I type away at a mad rate. *sip* And I still have a sugar-high from reading The Night Circus.
I am 56% through with TNC, and there is so much I am finding wrong:
1. The plot drags (Read: slow going)
2. The romance hasn't been fully introduced yet (misleading book blurb)
3. There are adverbs EVERYWHERE
4. There is A LOT of description
So what do I like--nay, love about this book?
Answer: It is a feast for the senses.
Ever read a book so rich in detail that you find yourself daydreaming about escaping there? TNC does that for me.
Don't expect book reviews here. I just wanted to say that Ms. Morgenstern inspires me to write with more detail and passion for setting. She really knows how to handle atmosphere.
Have you read The Night Circus? If so, what did YOU think? (Spoilers will be taken out and whipped with licorice)
