  1. I can see the Night Circus not being your thing. On one hand I liked all the pretty descriptions, but on the other it didn’t quite engage me until quite close to the end. I did finish it, and overall I enjoyed it. But I tend to only recommend it to people who are really, really into whimsy.

      1. Don’t hate me if you still don’t like it lol but I thought it was so weird when I first read it and wondered why everyone loved it so much but I liked it a lot more when they started going into detail about the circus and the tents and what they contained.

  2. I remember having the same thought when I reread Harry Potter, poor boy had it rough! The Thirteenth Child sounds interesting, and although I’m a coward I love stories about viruses so I’ll check The Laptev Virus!

  3. I totally get it if you DNF The Night Circus. I think my overall comment was: very beautiful descriptions but one of the least “reader friendly” books I’ve come across!

    It’s great when you can’t believe a book is a children’s book. I always say a good book is just that – it doesn’t have to be just for one age/type of reader.

    So true about Harry’s life! It’s almost Roald Dahl awful! The kid had to sleep in a cupboard under the stairs!

    Here’s my WWW: https://clairehuston.wordpress.com/2016/02/10/www-wednesday-10th-february-2016/

    1. Its a great book, but its not an action-packed one. Its very ‘based in the lab’, written by an actual microbiologist, and a realistic playing out of things. So not really an Outbreak type read, but definitely a good one.
