30 DBC: Day 24

Day 24 – A book that you wish more people would’ve read

The-Night-Circus-UKI guess that this is more of a ‘I wish more people I knew had read’, because I am sure a large number of people have read this.

I wish more people I knew had read this book because there are elements that I could very happily discuss for a while.

The descriptions in this book are wonderful. The most pronounced was the description of the clock within the Cirque de Reves. It’s completely magical.

  1. I LOVED this book. Transports you to a world you never want to leave. 🙂

      Absolutely! I had it on my bookshelf for months, waiting to be read. The moment I started reading it, I was kicking myself that I hadn’t read it the minute I bought it. I love circus stories that incorporate a historical element. In this case, Victorian, and in Water for Elements, the depression. There is such fantastical beauty in them.

      • Me too! I’ve always had this weird obsession for Victorian-era circuses. They had an air of mystery and secrets around them which I just live(d) for.

        Exactly! I’m not a massive fan of historical fiction. I find ones I like, of course, but in general, historical fiction is one of the genres I pick up least. (Apart from Horror, but I’m a wuss.) However, there is something about circus stories with a historical element that make me grab it and never want to let go.
        I’ve actually got a circus story in the planning stages. The beginning is written, but I’ve vowed not to work on it until I have at least a first draft of the second Out of Orbit book. The circus story is a mash-up between Sci-Fi, Circuses, and some powers elements, with a 20’s prohibition undertones. I’m incredibly excited about it, and am always coming up with new ideas to add in.

      • Wow. I’m excited too, haha. I’ll let you know if I come up with an idea or two about it, okay? Keep it up! 🙂
