Teaser Tuesday with The Night Circus

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I've heard so much about The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It has my expectations set very high, but I've been told it doesn't disappoint. I love the cover. It stands out on a bookshelf and offers so much mystery.
Here's your teaser:
In the blink of an eye folds of silk are glossy black feathers, large beating wings, and it is impossible to pin-point the moment when is is fully raven and no longer cloth. The raven swoops over the red velvet seats and up into the balcony where it flies in curious circles. (page 75)

  2. I absolutely LOVE this book! Like, big puffy heart it. (I claim that if I could have written a book to publish, this would be it. I know, I know, I just feel it's SO me!)

    Don't know if you will love it as much as I, but I have read it twice now, and still love it! It is officially in my top favorite books!
