^is that Circus book any good? i hear so much about it and people seem quite split over it. i hate the Circus so i don't think this book will be for me anyways, or is there not so much circus life?

^It's good so far. I honestly haven't gotten far enough to really judge, but I'll post more about it when I finish. One of the main reasons I wanted to read it is that one of the main characters has my name (Celia), which I rarely see in literature. :p

The writing takes some getting used to, but the author uses a lot of great descriptive writing to create her world. It's not so much about the circus (which is not your standard circus)...the story is about two competing magicians who (I'm assuming) eventually fall in love. So far I recommend it.

I recently finished the third installment and felt a bit deflated when it was over
DEFINITELY worth reading though, I hope you enjoy the next two books!

I'm currently reading The Remains of the Day by Kazio Ishiguro
It's much quieter in tone and content than the Hunger Games :p
