Waiting on Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

I'm intrigued by...

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Publisher: Flatiron Books
Publication Date: 10 January 2017
Pre-Order: Amazon | The Book Depository

Before you enter the world of Caraval, you must remember that it’s all a game . . .

Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their ruthless father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the legendary, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.

Then, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation to Caraval finally arrives. So, Tella enlists a mysterious sailor’s help to whisk Scarlett away to this year’s show. But as soon as the trio arrives, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nonetheless soon becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with her sister, with Legend, and with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.

I definitely like the sound of this one. It has a The Night Circus feel to it, but darker. And I really like that cover.  It's pretty with that galaxy like background. 

What book snagged your attention this week? Is Caraval on your TBR?

  1. It reminded me of The Night Circus too (which was fantastic). Can't wait to read this one, a shame January is so far away. :(

    Happy Reading!
