The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (2011)

Set in a wandering circus in a fantasy of the Victorian era, two master magicians pit their young protégés against each other in deadly competition.

This was a simply lovely book, so carefully crafted that the images became fully formed in my mind. I felt quite enchanted as I was reading this, which is appropriate since this is a book about enchantment. Also, how refreshing it is to read a book where most of the characters are essentially good and likable, set in a place that is so essentially positive and welcoming, magical and like home all at the same time. How wonderful to imagine it might be real. I hope someone very good makes a movie out of this, as I would love to see these images brought to life.
