So it went when I bought Erin Morgenstern’s “The Starless Sea” when it came out two weeks ago. I’ve been waiting all summer for this book to land on the shelves, having told everyone I knew how much I loved “The Night Circus.”
Now, like any person with a favorite author, there’s always that first book you read that is the candle to which all others are held. Morgenstern could write a blockbuster, Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller and “The Night Circus” would remain my favorite book from her. That said, “The Starless Sea” did not disappoint.
The novel is by its simplest description, a love letter to libraries. An ode to book lovers. The manifestation of our secret desire just to live somewhere quiet and Hygge-like, surrounded by books and wine and friendly cats.
