The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
A circus arrives without warning, no announcements preceed it. It opens at nightfall closes at dawn. I felt like I went on an epic and wild adventure when I read this book. It was so full of magic and love, it was unique and thrilling and so incredibly imaginative. It is a wow of a book.

 

Of Things Gone Astray by Janine Mathewson
This is one of my favourite books of 2014. One morning in London, a group of people all lose something precious to them, these things are precious but extremely unusual, such as the front of their house, their piano keys, their sense of direction, their place of work. I wanted to read this novel so quickly but it kept making me pause to think, it is so unique and special, the writing is wonderful. It is witty and wise and completely original.
