But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway, duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love, a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.
True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per

I like all sorts if im perfectly honest. my firend said earlier this month that i should try "The Hobbit" but I have to admit I found it rather dull. I'm open to all suggestions, as I'm trying to broaden my knowlegde of books, (too many years being told im not allowed to read because it makes me look geeky, but thats a whole other story lol) and since about March time Ive read loads, "Me before You", "The Hunger Games", The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, "The Green Mile" and "The Lucky One" to name a few. I have also read Reggie Kray's autobiography too, which I was really suprised by. I guess my point is I like all sorts XD. xoxox
The Night Circus would be different from all the ones that you mentioned but if you would like to try something different this would be a great way to do it. If you like it you might also try The Time Travellers Wife (another one that I really loved) Looking at the list that you mentioned above I wonder if you tried Water for Elephants? My recent favourite book has been Gone Girl, a psychological thriller that I simply could not put down, fantastic! It looks like you also read a fair amount of YA, there are some really good ones in this genre. I am reading right now The Wool (very good!) I also noticed that you mentioned the last Jojo Moyes "Me before You" She has a new one coming in September, did you register for the advanced reading copy for this one?
I bought this book in hardback the day it came out (yesterday!) and I already can't wait to read it after hearing loads of people rave about it. It has to be the prettiest book i've ever bought, would be a great gift.
