What I loved the most about the book was the setting of Caraval. It’s so beautifully descriptive it feels like a magical place. You’re taken back to the feeling when you were a wee little one and you’re in Disneyland for the first time in your life. It’s that magical feel good feeling that comes bac...

In a world where nothing is certain but your unwavering love for your sister and the undeniable fact that you're dad is an evil lump of rotted plum smelling $h!t, what will you do to escape? What will it take to save your sister in the process? What alliances will you forge and what sorted things wi...

I'm not sure there is much worse to a book lover than waiting forever for a book to come out and then for it to fall flat. This book was just so....meh. Not bad, really. But definitely not what I was hoping. I wanted magic and romance and adventure. We got a heroine that was too stupid to live, a si...

Two sisters participate in the game of a lifetime in this young adult fantasy romance. Let’s review!I’ve never been captivated by books centered around the magic of a carnival or circus. Sadly, Garber’s Caraval is not the novel to break me from my apathy. The plot is simple – two sisters, Scarlett a...

This is one of my top two favorite books that I've read so far this year. I raved so much about it on my bookstagram I think my followers got super tired of me for it. Lol. Not only is the game playing with Scarlett's mind, but it played with mine as well. "Remember that it's all a game." But it's s...

Unfortunately, I was not as impressed with Caraval as I expected to be. Which, trust me, shocked me just as much as it might shock you. Books like this, with themes of magic and intrigue are usually my bread and butter. I wholly expected to be swept away by this story. If Caraval had spent more time...

I requested this book on NetGalley a few weeks ago but did not got approved. I thought, not a big deal, I'll wait for it to come out. Then I went to Maastricht and found it in the bookstore (really, I should check this place more often, they have a lot of new releases), it was not even supposed to b...

This was exactly the right book at the right time - after a string of books I couldn't quite latch onto, Caraval came to the rescue in brilliant sparkling glory. There have been numerous circus/carnival themed books in recent years, and some of them are better at evoking a sense of wonder than oth...

I received a copy from Netgalley. I’m really not sure what to make of this book. In a word? Weird. But at the same time completely absorbing and fascinating. This is a strange case for me as I didn’t particularly like any of the characters, I found the main character Scarlett to be incredibly timid ...

Thoroughly enjoyed this one - pure magic. A lot of fun. I can see why the comparisons to The Night Circus but I think if you are expecting it to be like that you'll be disappointed somewhat, this is its own thing with a different heart. But gorgeous.More to follow when I do more of my "Ones to watch...
