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 Rêves
The Circus of Dreams.
Now the circus is open.
Now you may enter.
I have had a bit more time to read lately and it was suggested to me by Melanie (a fellow reviewer on the blog) that we should try and bring back the Book of the Month. August has already started, but I thought I would announce the book now and we can then discuss it later in September? Maybe middle of the month say the 15th?
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a book that caught both Melanie and I's attention. If you've already read it great! I can't wait to hear what your thoughts are! If you haven't but are now intrigued grab yourself a copy and join along with us!
Here is a link to a social networked Night Circus game. I haven't joined because I don't know if I need to read the book first. Here is another link to Erin Morgenstern's web page.
