Title: The Night Circus
Author: Erin Morgenstern
Release Date: September 19, 2011
Summary: The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.
True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus performers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.
Album Title: Dead Throne

Why I'm Excited: I've seen TDWP twice and both times they were amazing. Their Zombie EP came out about 2 years ago and I've been waiting on something from them for quite a while! I found their newest single, Born to Lose and I instantly became excited about this release. If the rest of the album sounds anything like this, I will have this on repeat in my car for who knows how long. It seems like its going to be a real departure from With Roots Above and Branches Below. I loved that album, but the clean vocals sound different in this and I think its going to be a more refined sound. So, I'm excited. I might pre-order this actually :]
