If you haven’t guessed by now I’m kinda obsessed with books but I was always overwhelmed with the selection available. I had so many things I wanted to read next that often I ended up not reading any of them or starting three at once but not finishing them. This blog was a way for me to slow down and properly digest my own reading, and hopefully gives a bit of help to other lit buffs out there in narrowing down what to read next. I try to tackle a range of different authors, eras and genres, without completely ignoring non-fiction.
The blog’s name is an allusion to one of my favourite books ‘The Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern. Herr Thiessen is one of the Circus’ voyeurs, a man whose love of the circus leads him to research and write about the experience of a night at the magical circus. I’m always up for recommendations so please let me know if you have a suggestion!
Other things I love include jasmine tea, superhero films and the cold side of the pillow.
