Hi guys!

Today, I’m going to introduce to you this three day collaboration which I have decided to pair up with my best friend, @ALovelornVirgo. It has been a while since I last posted something other than book reviews on my blog so having this collaboration here freshens everything up.

In this segment, my bestfriend and I will be giving our reviews on the audiobook and the paperback versions of the book respectively. So if you want to know her opinion on the latter, you may visit her blog @ALovelornVirgo.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading! (smiles)




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.

It took seven years to get the letter right…

Scarlett Dragna always dreamed of participating Caraval all through her life. So when Legend finally invited her to join, she and her sister, Tella, finds ways to escape their little isle to the place where magic only show itself up at night.

But it seems like this game of wonders and tricks is not what they think it is and Scarlett needs find her sister before it’s too late. What is she willing to sacrifice to have what she loves the most?

Remember, it’s only a game…


  • Those luciously described setting. All throughout the book, I have been dying to go where the Caraval is being held. It is so beautifully described that even magic is spilling between its pages! (Swoon)
