Literally my favorite book

Amazing writing that creates a whole new world. Impossible to put down and really wish it was a series.

One of my favorites

The Night Circus is one of the best books I've ever read. I am not usually into fantasy books but the magic and details in this book put me right into Circus de Rives, walking around, eating the food, taking in the tents of wonder. Loved this book.

Absolutely amazing

I don't even know how to describe this book other than "fantastical". It's an incredible story from different perspectives and the writing is just spectacular. This is definitly a book not easily forgotten.

Got what I wanted

So I order this on 2/2/21 and I got it on 2/5/21 so I'm pretty happy that it didn't take so long since I've wanted this book for a while but it was too much money anywhere else. When it arrived, it looked pretty good, with no folds or dents so I would say that I'm satisfied with my order. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to read about two young magicians that fall for each other who weren't supposed to and it makes everything in their lives complicated.

My new favorite star-crossed lovers!

I was starting to give up on many romantic titles until a friend recommended this book. She already knew I was a hopeless romantic albeit dissatisfied with a lot of "popular romances" and convinced me to read this one. The main love story made me sigh more than once and the supporting cast of characters was spectacular on its own. I already regret it reading it all in a single afternoon.

The Best Fantasy Novel I've Ever Read!

Erin Morgenstern does an amazing job of making the impossible, vivid and tangible. From the tastes, sights, and smells, to the unique relationships and glances exchanged. Definitely worth the read!

One of my favorites!

Couldn't put it down, read in 2 days. Love, love, love this book.

Takes a while to get into it

I thought the book was ok because it had potential for a good story line and an interesting magical world, but a lot was left unexplained and it took a while to get into any of the action. I found myself skipping around a lot and the romance aspect was not fleshed out properly. Kinda like a worse version of AHS Freak Show without the interesting parts, it was a bit dry. Overall, a light read and not worth purchasing.

Very well written

A beautifully written quick book. Fun to read; I became completely absorbed in the imagery.

I liked it

I love the story...

Absolutely amazing!

I read this book so fast! I loved every second of it. My only complaint is that it isn't longer.


I loved this book and it is one I will never forget. A very different, intriguing story and it is one of those books you will likely never forget after you've read it. Very, very good!


I had a marvelous time reading this book! I cannot recommend it enough

Wonderful writing sweeps you along before you know it.

I loved this book so much. My dear friend, and my kid both told me I needed to read it. And I'm so glad they did. I couldn't put it down, but near the end I didn't want it to end. It just sweeps you up in this world and I never wanted to re-emerge. Good for kids and adults alike!

Couldn’t put the night circus down

I wish there were more books such as this! Such magic and surprise. Will Erin Morgenstern please write another novel. This book make me happy when I was sad! Filled with such imagination!! Cannot say enough. A must read!

The Blue Moon of novels

There is nothing like this book, it is magical, whimsical, passionate, spontaneous, beautiful and time-stopping. I first found this book a few years ago at my local bookstore and decided to give it a go based on the beauty of the cover art. After the first page I was hooked. I cried and laughed and held my breath and wished the story was real. I got lost in the descriptions and colors and sheer mystery of it. When i turned the final page, I went back to page one and started it again because I couldn't imagine just walking away from this incredible world that Erin Morgenstern has gifted us with. This book is a must read.

Never put it down

I began reading this on a Thursday while with my brother at a weekend festival. Once I started my brother would beg me to take a break cause I kept reading it while walking through the festival. I finished the entire thing in 3 days and nearly cried when it was over. There's a reason it's on almost everyone's "must read" lists.

Absolutely beautiful

This is unlike any love story that I have ever read. There is time, a lot of time for there to be a deep-rooted love. It's just so beautiful, so whimsical, so magical comma leaves me longing and let you depart the world for a moment. I highly recommend it.

Amazing book

I've read this book more then a few times and it's just as magical every time. Definitely worth the read, it blends fiction and reality together is such a magical way.
