“The finest of pleasures are always the unexpected ones.” ― Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

A truly magical masterpiece. 

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern in one of the most unique and captivating novels that I have read in a long time. Not only was the setting (the circus itself) absolutely beautiful, but the magic, the characters, and overall the main plot of the story was outstanding. I did find it to be slow at times and I was confused a lot, but in the end I discovered a book I will be talking about for a long while. The synopsis is as followed:

It's a no for me.

I was tagged by the lovely Rosa from her Instagram account: BookishHorcrux and alongside an Instagram post, I will be posting my more length answers here! Check out her insta for her answers! Okay, here we go with the "Nope Book Tag"!

1) NOPE ENDING | A book ending that made you go NOPE either because of rage or denial: This one is applicable to SO MANY BOOKS. I think I will choose Empire of Storms by the amazing Sarah J. Maas. The end of book 5 was not what I was expecting. Not only is it heartbreaking, but it makes you feel as if you lost something. I remember just sitting alone in my room after I finished it and not knowing how to feel. There are two more books in the Throne of Glass world and I suspect it's not going to get any easier...

“And so I just kept writing to myself.” ― Kimberly Novosel, Loved

Sometimes you just need to write for yourself.

I meant to post this as a Mindful Monday, but as usual, procrastination got in the way. Anyways, we are doing this now. I would like to take a moment to talk about journaling. Whether you call it a diary or a journal, they both do the same thing. In some ways you can consider this blog somewhat of a virtual diary, but I promise that would I type on here and what I scratch in a notebook are very different.

“Your science can save a man’s life, but imagination makes it worth living.” ― Natasha Pulley, The Watchmaker of Filigree Street

I really wish I could say I liked this...

I just can't. That kills me! When I first read the synopsis for this book I was SOLD. I thought it would be interesting and a page-turner, but sadly, for me it fell rather short. The synopsis for The Watchmaker of Filigree Street is as followed:

FROM GOODREADS: 1883. Thaniel Steepleton returns home to his tiny London apartment to find a gold pocket watch on his pillow. Six months later, the mysterious timepiece saves his life, drawing him away from a blast that destroys Scotland Yard. At last, he goes in search of its maker, Keita Mori, a kind, lonely immigrant from Japan. Although Mori seems harmless, a chain of unexplainable events soon suggests he must be hiding something. When Grace Carrow, an Oxford physicist, unwittingly interferes, Thaniel is torn between opposing loyalties.
