Book Review: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern I’ve been thinking here in the Maldives how much I would have enjoyed The Night Circus on the beach. How I would have ripped through it the way a beach book should read. How it would have possibly cost me a sunburn. You don’t stop and savour and take your time with The Night Circus. Full Review
