Caraval was one of the biggest releases of 2017. It was the book everyone was talking about for months!

There was so much hype surrounding this book's release. From its stunning cover to the fantastical story, everyone wanted it. I found out about Caraval through social media -- you couldn't throw a figurative rock on Instagram without seeing a photo of its gorgeous cover -- and decided to pick it up.
