The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern That's right, I'm starting the year off with a five-star book.

This was absolutely enchanting. The storyline was unique and imaginative; the short chapters kept me reading far later than I wanted to because, after all, the next chapter is only four pages.

So many good things to say, it's hard to put it all together. Instead, how about a list of my favorite things?
The game
The color scheme
That clock
The twins
Herr Thiessen
The reveurs

It was magical.

ETA: re-read on September 20, 2012. Still five stars.
