Line(s) of the Day #TheNightCircus


The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

The opening lines of the fantastically enchanting debut novel The Night Circus (2011) by Erin Morgenstern. I was spoiled for choice for which line to use, but I like that even from the very beginning the uniqueness and mystery of the circus has been set. Something completely pivotal to the story.

  1. This and “Water For Elephants” are the two most famous novel written during NaNoWriMo. It’s my understanding this is being made into a movie, though I haven’t heard much about that.

    • I knew The Night Circus was written during that but didn’t know about Water for Elephants. It will be interesting to see who is involved behind the camera and which cast they use. I can certainly see Rachel McAdams involved.

      • I actually read it while I was at a Kung Fu retreat in Pai in Thailand, I found the book in a second hand bookstore there, read the first page and was captivated instantly. Memories of that book bring back feelings of magic and far away lands and excitement!

  2. This is truly one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. The electricity it stirred in me is what sparked my passion to write. I want to create for others what this book created for me.
