Remember, it’s only a game…
Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval—the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show—are over.
But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.
Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. And whether Caraval is real or not, Scarlett must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over or a dangerous domino effect of consequences will be set off, and her beloved sister will disappear forever.
Welcome, welcome to Caraval…beware of getting swept too far away.
Sooo… I’ve been meaning to read this book for a looooonnnnggg time. I heard so many amazing things about Caraval before it was released, so I actually preordered it and then got another copy in my Owlcrate. Well…. shame on me because yup you guessed it… still haven’t read it. Have you read Caraval? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below if I should bump this up on my list. I mean I’m still totally planning on picking it up sometime this year… I think.
Thanks for reading and stopping by loves. Have a great day!!!!
