Sounds delicious, eh? It is. And I've included the recipe for The Night Circus to better sum up my reading experience:
The Night Circus:
4 Cups Angela Carter's work
2 Cups wonderfully atmospheric color palette of black and white
Dash of red
3 Cups of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell
5 Tablespoons of Geek Love
4 Cups of damn fine writing
1 Cup of The Prestige
1 Quart ingenuity
Pinch of Harry Potter
Dash of Neil Gaiman
Mix Angela Carter's work with the color palette and dash of red.
Blend in Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, Geek Love, damn fine writing and The Prestige.
Create a well in the center and pour in ingenuity, fold in.
Sprinkle with Harry Potter and Neil Gaiman.
Bake at 387 pages. Serve with nighttime, cup of tea, and page-turning dazzlement.
There you are, your very own Night Circus recipe. Needless to say as my first read of 2012 Morgenstern's novel has set the bar quite high for my other reads!
