As is fitting for a weekend that begins on Friday the thirteenth and calls for thunderstorms, my book du jour this week [so it that a book du semaine, then?] is Night Circus. It takes place at the turn-of-the-century, at a circus that opens at sunset and closes at dawn. It’s got dueling magicians, a well-meaning but stubborn ghost, and just enough of a love story to set up camp under the summer beach read umbrella. And what’s better, it’s a Target Book Club pick for the month of July, meaning its twelve dollars and available at any Target store.
Enjoy the weekend – and happy reading!
