Throwback Thursday – The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Throwback Thursday / June 6, 2019

Throwback Thursday is a weekly feature to highlight books from the past. It can honestly be anything as long as its not a book that is a current release.

It appears in the night, and has never before seen, and quite unexplainable wonders. A true air of mystery surrounds the place. There can be magic in words that captures the imagination to a higher level than normal. Part of the beauty of this book is that experience. Morgenstern guides us very well, but it’s up to us to see the real magic in the circus.
