Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus has been a surprising hit. It's also been fodder for a lot of criticism. While I won't get into too much nitpicking, I think it suffers from a "Twilight" complex: a lot of buildup for some very lackluster action with some blank slates for characters. The cover is perfection for the story though. You really know what kind of tale you're getting into here. I stayed true to the red, white and black color scheme (that is also integral to the plot). I love that this peplum ballerina top conveys the feeling of a circus tent. Lots of stripes, glamour, and an acrobatic charm necklace complete the look.
