The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern Gorgeous novel. Tone, structure, language, story, characters. All gorgeous. Loved it.This is going in my top 5 books this year. It's an immediate re-read, except I'm loaning it out to just about everyone that will read it. Lush and decadent language, relatable characters in an impossible situation, redemption, originality of tone and situation. Everything that good fiction should be.
