Eyes Like Stars
Eyes Like Stars: Theatre Illuminata, Act I by Lisa Mantchev
Hardcover: 368 pages
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends (July 7, 2009)
Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the actors of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Théâtre by The Book—an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family—and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known.
*sigh* I had high hopes for this book. Everything I read about it made it sound like it was right up my alley and I would really enjoy it.
Well.. lets just say it will get a second chance but I don't know when.
I read 55 pages and nothing at all was grabbing me. Nothing was making me want to pick it back up. I even skipped ahead a little and read a chapter thinking that it may make me want to know what happened.. but nada.
I love the cover to death and like I said, really thought this would be something that I'd really like.. I won't tell anyone "don't bother" because too many of us have different tastes, and often how a book makes us feel about it also deals with how we feel and the moods we are in when we read them.
I guess I wasn't in the right mood. Maybe next time.
A little later today I will post some Pond Photo's..
