This is one of my top two favorite books that I've read so far this year. I raved so much about it on my bookstagram I think my followers got super tired of me for it. Lol. Not only is the game playing with Scarlett's mind, but it played with mine as well. "Remember that it's all a game." But it's so easy to forget.
There is so much action and drama packed into this book. I judged this book by its cover and I was so happy it lived up to its impact it had on me. The magical way Garber has of writing stole my heart and I don't think I'll be getting it back anytime soon. Can I have the second book now? Even though the first one isn't even out yet? Can I have the movie? I want it all, right now. It's very hard for an author to be able to illicit that sort of craving from me, but Garber managed it.
The way she set up the magical Caraval was amazing, the descriptions were perfection. It all played out in my head so well. I loved the characters, even though at times they were extremely frustrating, as with all the books I've ever read, so that's expected. It makes the story even better it seems like. This book has it all: magic, romance, heartbreak, death, sadness, happiness, mystery, suspense. The list goes on and on.
