Hi friends! I hope that your day is lovely. It is a gorgeous day here, even if it is chilly, I just call that good running weather!
Last night I went to Kathy Reichs’s book signing at the library, SO much fun! Lots of talking about the Temperance Brennan novels, as well as her young adult series which features Tempe’s niece Tory (which she co-writes with her son, very cool!) (review of that series to come when I finish my new signed copy of the newest installment). She even talked a little about the new season of Bones; all around it was a lot of fun!
Kathy is a lucky lady and gets to sit and look amazing while the rest of us who may or may not have come from working out have to bend over and look awkward (just be grateful that I was conscious enough not to give you a shot of the ladies). I am SO glad that King’s English Bookshop brought her out, and I am looking forward to heading out to a lot more events like this in my area!
Onward to a new review! I finished Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern a few weeks ago, it was one of those books you don’t want to end, and want to reread almost instantly.
I was going to put in a summary from either GoodReads or the author’s website, but both give away a big element I wish I hadn’t known before I read the book. So, I am going to break away from my usual review format to keep you in suspense!
This book popped up on my radar a few times over the last few months and I couldn’t wait for it to come out. I read some early reviews, and I knew I would enjoy it.
Full of magic and fantasy, the book takes place in the late 1800s, early 1900s, all around the world but mainly in London and the circus itself (which travels a lot). The author does a great job of creating a wonderful fantasy-like backdrop for the storyline while still being true to the era in which it is set. Like I said, the circus comes to life as you read.
One aspect that I didn’t like was that the chronology was not linear. Which I am usually 50/50 about in general, but in this book I wasn’t a huge fan, BUT I think that it was mainly because I read it on my nook, which makes it harder to flip back a few pages to double check which year/location you are in.
Other than that tiny aspect, I absolutely loved it and I already want to read it again and again.
Have you read this book yet? What are you reading now?
I am going to start reading Seizure by Kathy Reichs as soon as I get back from my run today, can’t wait!
