The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

★★★☆☆ (3/5)

<b>A selection of my favourite passages from the book</b> 

• Her jacket, her gloves, even the hem of her gown. There is not a single drop of rain upon her although it continues to pour, the wind causing the rain to fall in several directions beyond the standard gravitational pattern.
• “Secrets have power,” Widget begins. “And that power diminishes when they are shared, so they are best kept and kept well. Sharing secrets, real secrets, important ones, with even one other person, will change them. Writing them down is worse, because who can tell how many eyes might see them inscribed on paper, no matter how careful you might be with it. So it’s really best to keep your secrets when you have them, for their own good, as well as yours.
• “The past is easier,” Widget says. “It’s already there.”
• I prefer thought to memory
• I am of the opinion that no methodology is worthwhile unless it can be taught
