Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

The Night Circus
By: Erin Morgenstern
Release Date: September 13, 2011

"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night. But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands. True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead."

  13. I read an article not too long ago on this book- how the author was rejected by 30 or 40+ publishers before finding someone who wanted it. I'm looking forward to reading it too.

  14. I can understand comparing a book to The Hunger Games for dystopian purposes, but comparing it to Harry Potter!? That is serious stuff. I hope this book lives up to its hype. It does look pretty incredible, especially the romance part between the magicians.
