CARAVAL Quotes - Source: Goodreads

“Every person has the power to change their fate if they are brave enough to fight for what they desire more than anything.” ― Stephanie Garber

“No one is truly honest,” Nigel answered. “Even if we don't lie to others, we often lie to ourselves. And the word good means different things to different people.” ― Stephanie Garber

“Whatever you've heard about Caraval, it doesn't compare to the reality. It's more than just a game or performance. It's the closest you'll ever find yourself magic in this world.” ― Stephanie Garber

“She imagined loving him would feel like falling in love with darkness, frightening and consuming yet utterly beautiful when the stars came out.” ― Stephanie Garber

“Hope is a powerful thing. Some say it’s a different breed of magic altogether. Elusive, difficult to hold on to. But not much is needed.” ― Stephanie Garber

“No one is truly honest. Even if we don't lie to others, we often lie to ourselves. And the word good means different things to different people.” ― Stephanie Garber

“She remembered thinking falling for him would be like falling in love with darkness, but now she imagined he was more like a starry night: the constellations were always there, constant, magnificent guides against the ever-present black.” ― Stephanie Garber

“He tasted like midnight and wind, and shades of rich brown and light blue. Colors that made her feel safe and guarded.” ― Stephanie Garber

“Scarlett was not fond of fate. She liked to believe if she were good, good things would happen. Fate left her feeling powerless, and hopeless, and with an overall feeling of lessness. To her, fate seemed like a larger, omnipotent version of her father, stealing her choices and controlling her life without any regard for her feelings. Fate meant that nothing she did mattered.” ― Stephanie Garber

“What happens beyond this gate may frighten or excite you, but don’t let any of it trick you. We will try to convince you it’s real, but all of it is a performance. A world built of make-believe. So while we want you to get swept away, be careful of being swept too far away. Dreams that come true can be beautiful, but they can also turn into nightmares when people won’t wake up.” ― Stephanie Garber



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.

  1. I think when I was a kid, I went to a carnival trip. I remember riding a ferris wheel, and since no one was in line, me and my sisters rode it, like, 8 times in a row.

  3. I'm not sure I've been at something that was officially a "carnival." Does a state fair count? Or a county fair? Anyway, I think cotton candy is just too darn messy!

  5. I've never been to a carnival but I've been to a county fair! They had rides and food that is really not very healthy lol. I'm scared of heights but I rode my first ferris wheel a couple of summers ago when a friend went with me. It was fun as long as I didn't look down! Lol.

  10. I haven't been to a carnival. I've been to an amusement park though, does that count?

  11. No carnival, but a county fair. I think I was 5 or so the first time I went. Rode a lot of fun rides, like the carousel, the ferris wheel, even the sky lift, which helped my parents cover more ground with me since it cut down on some of the walking. Didn't play any midway games though. I got to have a taste of my first elephant ear (OMG, so good), and we also got to look at the categories of arts, crafts, science, and writing projects submitted by older students of the county's school system.

  18. The tigers were prowling and snarling as they climbed on and off those circus stools at my first carnival. My head hurt from leaning back watching the trapeze artists swing and fly as if they weren't so very high up in the tent.

  21. Every summer we have a fair that travels around my province :) It's as close to a carnival as we get! There's a ferris wheel, games of chance, cotton candy, and candy apples. I can't remember the first time I went, but I try to go every year because it's so much fun and I love the lights from the displays at night! :)

  24. There was a travelling carnival that came to town every year. What I remember most are the animals, especially the elephants and the big cats. The high wire acts amazed and delighted me. The only ride I wanted to go on was the carousel where I rode the lion and a unicorn. The food was so good. That was the first time I had cotton candy and the way it melted on my tongue felt so amazing. It was magical.
