Everyone was so freaking in love with The Night Circus, I figured there would be no way I could be any different. And I was...wrong.

When I finished The Night Circus, I felt like it was lacking something. Maybe more depth, maybe a more exciting plot. I don't know.

What I do know:
The romance, if it can be even considered romance, was horribly written. Celia and Marco may have been infatuated with each other's magic abilities but in no way was it anything more.

The way the book was set up made the plot so complex to understand. Halfway through I had to take a break from the book and figure out what the hell was going on. Maybe it was set up to be intriguing, but it just seemed complex and unneeded.

Other readers will love The Night Circus. And I can see why. The book had a certain magical quality that seemed to pull readers in, but I just wasn't fooled by the magic. Maybe I wasn't the book's target audience, or maybe I wasn't in the right kind of mood when I picked it up.

Either way, this book was a hit...and a miss.
