Characters • I related a lot to Scarlett and her need to do the right thing and take care of her sister at all costs. But there's an obvious desire to explore inside of her and games in Caraval bring that out. We don't get to know Tella nearly as well but I want to know more. And don't get me start on the mysterious sailor because well.. I'm sure you can guess.
Writing • The author's words made it easy to imagine the world she created. It's magical, dark and mysterious and so compelling to read about. She did a phenomenal job of describing Caraval and juggling the characters along with the twisted plot that pushed them along.
Overall feelings • It should be on your TBR. Enough said.
What is your favorite film or TV show that features magic? • My answer is so obvious but I don't care – Harry Potter!
