#DustOffYourBookshelf #1

Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! and Mandy @ The Reading Diaries have teamed up to encourage themselves and others to use Instagram more. 

 So they came up with #Dustoffyourbookshelf where you display a book that you have had on your shelf for a long time and probably forgotten about. If you have time to grab it off the shelf and read it that is great, but you don’t have to read what you display. You can be creative in your displaying or you can just take a picture of it on your shelf. They are mainly doing this to get into Instagram but thought it would be fun to do a post on Thursdays since there's normally not a lot to post for Thursdays. It’s not technically a meme yet unless they get some followers, so join in the fun!

I'm actually on Instagram quite a bit, so I figured this sounded like fun.

This week's book is one that I literally had to brush the dust off of. I meant to read it long ago (notice that it's a hardcover) but never got around to it. I still really want to read it. Perhaps now that it's been dusted, it'll make it's way into my tbr pile.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
(Goodreads link)

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 Reves," 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.

Have you read it?

Hopefully I'll get around to reading it soon!
