Title: The Starless sea by Erin Morgenstern

I know this book has had a lot of bad reviews but for me I’m enjoying it immensely.

It actually feels like the book it self is magical with the style it is written in. I think some reviewers just can’t handle the style.

Feels like a fairy tale.

Oooooh another one for my list - it's been there ever since I found out she was writing another book, and the review I've read just made me want to read it more.
Your words just confirmed it for me :D

Since Eclipse is enjoying it, I'm pretty sure that you will not like the book at all ;D

Sometimes we match ;)

Not very often but it does happen😀

Maybe we can add this novel on to here  http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/fantasy-book-discussion/series-which-are-loved-by-both-scarletbea-and-eclipse/

I always find it odd how many @cupiscent books overlap  on my tbr list. I read military fantasy and she reads YA mostly haha.

I dunno about mostly, though I do seem to read a lot more YA than most folks here. My tastes do seem to be drifting away from "mainstream" fantasy though, yes.

For mine... well, I was slightly underwhelmed by The Night Circus but it was certainly a very accomplished book, so I'm curious about the new one, but not rushing to get hold of it.

How does it compare to The Night Circus?

I feel it’s as magical as the night circus

It’s a totally different story to the night circus it’s not a sequel.

I feel non fantasy fans would struggle with it.

It feels like a love letter to storytellers

It’s stories within stories
