As we have been announcing for while now, there will be a Caraval buddy read/read along going on in the month of March. We will be holding discussions each Wednesday throughout the month starting on the 8th of March.
Participation is not necessary, nor is answering every question, or joining every discussion a mandatory thing, should you choose to join us. We are just doing this for fun so please feel free to read along with us. Even if you have already read the novel in it’s entirety, feel free to comment on the discussion board.
This read along is hosted by us, here at The Book Cover Girls, and Brookie, from BrookieCowles. More information on the dates of the discussions and read along end date will be posted closer to March. For more info on our read along in general see our original post HERE.

Goodreads Synopsis for Caraval
Whatever you’ve heard about Caraval, it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or a performance. It’s the closest you’ll ever find to magic in this world . . .
Welcome, welcome to Caraval―Stephanie Garber’s sweeping tale of two sisters who escape their ruthless father when they enter the dangerous intrigue of a legendary game.
Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved 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 far-away, 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. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.
