Reading

Speaking of reading, this is the book I'm immersed in now...

reading plus lavender scented tea lights = perfection

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Not clowns and elephants type of circus, this is completely different; illusionists, contortionists, fortune tellers, real magic and takes place at the turn of the century. It's simply wonderful, mysterious, dark, and dreamy. Just my thing... and I don't want it to end. I hope this author will continue to write these types of stories, I would be happy to keep reading and reading.

I borrowed my copy from the library. Yes I am one of those weirdos who still goes to the library. I love borrowing instead of buying, especially when one doesn't know if a book will be good or not. Why waste money. Stockholm has many lovely libraries. Even our little neighborhood library is rather nice (though their selection of books is rather limited and old.) I only like to invest in books I'll read or flip through many times; cook books or art books... or Harry Potter ;)

I just finished this book, my husband is reading it now, and I too checked it out from the library! It is a magical, engaging story, and that cover art is magnificent!

I just finished it last night. It was seriously wonderful. Though I don't think I could possibly get my boyfriend to read it. hahaha

I looooved this book! My mom bought it for me for my birthday last fall and I read it all in two days. I couldn't put it down! I'm crossing my fingers that she is working on another book!

I'll be crossing my fingers as well!
