The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus is the story of a game conceived by two twisted and very old men, entrapping Celia and Marco, the chosen opponents, with most heavy stakes. But the game is played in beauty, and The Night Circus is an embodiment of joy and dreams.
Celia and Marco's narrative walks alongside the allurement of the circus itself, Le Cirque des Rêves, whose attractions endlessly delight. One after another, exquisite spectacles spring up, each elegant and unique. And then seamlessly the tents and exhibits weave into the romance, to breathtaking effect exposing the emotions of the young magicians, which they must keep in reserve from the wider world.
If you haven't yet read The Night Circus, I can only envy you the lovely first-time experience of it.
