Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

Why did I choose this book?

Besides that beautiful cover? lol. Caraval gives me such Night Circus feels & I have not found anything like it since leaving that world. It will be interesting to read a YA book of a similar concept. This book promises an invitation to a performance, a game, mystery, kidnapping, and magic. SOLD! since this seems to be book 1 in a series, i’m hoping Caraval sets the stage so well that it captures the magic of it all. I’m also loving the fact that it’s expected publication date is in January, i’m a mood reader & this just seems like the perfect time to pick up what i’m assuming will be a darker read.

    1. Night Circus will forever be a favorite of mine. I read it in physical form & then heard that the narrator for the audiobook was amazing & they didn’t lie lol. I felt like I was watching a movie & everything I had read was just as I had imagined. I love Sam! One of my top fave booktubers 🙂
