Okay, I’ve seen this elsewhere on the internet so I think it’s probably safe to share here.

This is the US paperback cover of The Night Circus.

Trust me when I tell you it’ll be even prettier in person. (On sale July 3rd!)


And now some things in no particular order and in unnumbered list form:

  • Have I mentioned that I’ll be at Book Expo America again this year? Because I will be at Book Expo America again this year. It’ll be all full-circle and surreal and I’ll likely look less like a deer in headlights this time. I hope.
  • I have blog posts that are not post-shaped yet but I will be posting them in the next while. They involve things like books (not by me) and a follow up to the time and the not having of it post and likely photoblog travelogues but more on that later.
  • Speaking of time, I’m doing that thing where I have so many little things to do that they end up piling up to that big thing time consuming size and thus I am again behind on things like emails and laundry and laundry ends up taking priority because it’s still chilly out so I’d like to be able to wear clothes.
  • I don’t actually have a fourth thing to add, I just thought this list would look better with four items rather than just three.

What a fantastic cover for the US paperback version! The original hardcover cover drew me in and made me pick up the book. This one is even better. Congratulations!

It’s sort of a combination of the UK and US covers, isn’t it? So pretty!

I just loaned my hardcover to a close friend. She’d had it on loan from the library but it was overdue and she was desperate to finish it. We spent all of lunch hour the other day at work talking about it…

Hey girl, the paperback looks swell. Looking forward to more in-depth posts from you. Thank you for the well balanced list. Those are hard to come by in this day and age.

Oh great! Will you be doing any signings for “The Night Circus” at Book Expo this year? I thoroughly enjoyed it when I read it a couple of months ago. I’ve learned a bunch from the way you describe things so it’s clear. That’s one of my Achilles heels when it comes to writing.

And the hard cover is so lovely! I do love the UK covers as well, they’re interpretation is always interesting to see versus the US versions of texts.

Hope you have a great vacation and to see you at Book Expo next month.

Beautiful cover, although I still adore my hardcover version.

What’s most important though, is the story that lies within it.
