Another random pick from the library, and I’m so glad to have read it. A cute feel-good romance. Other than romcom, romance in any form has never been a genre for me. But this book has just stolen my heart.
I loved the first book. Even though it sounded a bit childish at times the plot was great and I enjoyed it. The book is of course classified as both children’s literature and young adult(?) so the childishness is acceptable.
The first thing that struck me in the book was the vivid detailed description of the circus. I could see myself walking through it exploring the different tents and I seriously wished for it to be real.
The Priory of the Orange Tree is a massive book. The size of this book has always put me off from picking it up. I don’t think I would have ever read it if it wasn’t for the buddy read. I read the e-book and seeing that it had more than 1000 pages did intimidate me a little bit at the start.
