It is fair to say that there are times when you get invited onto a blog tour and the invite requires a happy dance, this was one of those times. When I read Caraval last year something special happened. I felt something like I had felt when I first read The Wizard of Oz as a little girl. I felt like there was something really special in the world and I was not only holding it in my hand but I needed to tell the whole world about it. This isn’t a book for a certain reader of a certain genre, this book is for everyone, it has something for every reader of every genre.
I’ve been given the first chapter to share with you today, something to whet the appetites of those of you who are still waiting for Tuesday’s release. I have also reposted my review here so you can see exactly what I thought, as I did originally post it a few months ago.
A mesmerising, magical and stunningly imaginative debut novel for anyone who loved The Night Circus.
Welcome to Caraval, where nothing is quite what it seems.
