Giveaway of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Posted July 30, 2012 by Kara in Giveaway / 9 Comments

Last night I asked Twitter if there would be any interest in a giveaway of a hardcover copy of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The response was overwhelmingly positive. 

See, the thing is, I tried to read this book. And it just wasn’t for me. The writing is absolutely GORGEOUS, but the plot (when there is one) didn’t pull me in. So I DNF’d it. Now I have no desire to go back and read it, and I have this lovely copy of the book that I need to get rid of. So I thought, GIVEAWAY! 

The condition of this book is great, FYI. I hardly touched it so it is almost brand new. I’m not taking pictures because I’m lazy, but just know that this is a beautiful book. I didn’t want to donate this one; I would rather someone I know get some use out of this book. I am donating boxes of books anyway. 

Here is the cover and blurb if you have not heard of this book yet (you must live under a rock):

Blurb: The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

This giveaway is US/CA only. Since this is coming from my own library, I cannot afford to ship internationally. But I already have an international giveaway planned for August. Stay tuned.

  1. I’ve started this one twice, I think, and was just kind of “meh” about it, so I never finished it, either. Maybe I’ll give it one more try?

    It’s awesome of you to do the giveaway! 🙂 <3 I’m rootin’ for Jenni! Haha.

  2. I’m not commenting to enter just to say that it’s such a good idea to pass a book on when it’s not for you and a great idea for a giveaway! I’ve heard mixed things about TNC but I might give it a go, one day!
