What ELLE Reads: Lorraine Candy

ELLE Editor-in-chief on the book that uplifts and inspires her

by Erin Morgenstern (Vintage)

Why: This evocative and ethereal tale of an extraordinary love affair is the most visually arresting book I’ve ever read. It’s the story of two people who have magic powers and are pitted against each other in a surreal competition (in a circus) by a weird twist of fate – yet the plot is completely believable and peculiarly addictive. It’s a cross between Alice in Wonderland and a historical novel. And it feels like you are stepping inside the mind of the most imaginative person you have ever met.

It will leave you feeling: Uplifted and brave.

Give it to: Anyone who needs reminding that life is extraordinary, even on the dullest days.
