Book 13 of 2016 is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
"The circus arrives without warning."
This book was recommended to me a couple of years ago when I was still in Australia. Pretty much every book story employee that I asked to recommend me their favourite phantasmagorical book recommended this one.
I was looking for Gaimenesque fantastical drama and this was the book to answer it, over and over again.
It is hard to describe this book as more than magical without ruining the story. Do what I did and don't read anything about it before you devour this book.
Four illusions out of five.
Should I read this? Absolutely, yes. It is a book for everyone.
What did I learn? Be good at what you do and always believe in the best of all outcomes.
