Thanks to Jill from Breaking the Spine who started this weekly meme where we showcase the awesome books that we are drooling over before they are published!
From Goodreads (where I got the cover)
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.
Sorry while I clean up the drool. But seriously though. Doesn’t the cover of Caraval look drool worthy? There are sparkles (and for those of you who know me I am not someone who enjoys sparkles) and just looks magical!
For me the biggest YES for me is that I absolutely adored The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and I can see where I might be getting that same magical inducing shiver down my spine again with Caraval.
Publication date is January 31st 2017!
