Currently reading. Needs no further explanation I’m sure.
Geeesh. I dunno man, I had read someone’s post on how they liked circus-related books, which reminded me of The Night Circus (which I enjoyed), and then I saw this book with carnival in the title and felt compelled to buy it. I also think the cover is pretty!
But I’m not feeling it. The first 100 pages I was like “meh. what?” and then I thought I’ll give it some more time, and now I’m in the last third, so I think “what the hell, I guess I’ll finish it”, but it’s not… that good? I’m totally not invested, I don’t care about the characters, I don’t get why there are two story lines (one is so-so and one is straight out boring). I guess I’ll go with: don’t read this one.
