Waiting on Wednesday 07/08/20

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

The Ladies of the Secret Circus by Constance Sayers (March 23, 2021 by Redhook)

I really enjoyed Constance Sayers’ A Witch In Time earlier this year, so it’s nice to see she’ll have another historical, magic-infused fantasy in store for us!

“From the author of A Witch in Time comes a magical story spanning from Jazz Age Paris to present-day America of family secrets, sacrifice, and lost love set against the backdrop of a mysterious circus.

Paris, 1925: To enter the Secret Circus is to enter a world of wonder-a world where women tame magnificent beasts, carousels take you back in time, and trapeze artists float across the sky. But each daring feat has a cost. Bound to her family’s strange and magical circus, it’s the only world Cecile Cabot knows-until she meets a charismatic young painter and embarks on a passionate love affair that could cost her everything.

Virginia, 2005: Lara Barnes is on top of the world-until her fiancé disappears on their wedding day. Desperate, her search for answers unexpectedly leads to her great-grandmother’s journals and sweeps her into the story of a dark circus and a generational curse that has been claiming payment from the women in her family for generations.

  1. Hmm, doesn’t capture my interest quite as much as A Witch in Time, but I’m still curious enough to see some reviews before deciding whether to pick it up.


  2. Hhmmm… I’ve no clue if I’d enjoy this one. Based on the description I could go either way. I’m not big on heavily romantic books, but don’t mind elements of it. And I love the idea of the mysterious magical circus, it reminds me how much I’ve always wanted to read Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes.
