On My Chair

This is where I post the books that I borrow from the library, buy, or I receive via mail in the last week.

"Eyes Like Stars"
by Lisa Mantchev

All her world's a stage.
Beatrice Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater.
She's not an orphan, but she has no parents.
She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own.
Until now.

Enter Stage Right
Nate: Dashing pirate. Will do anything to protect Bertie (as she's known at the theater).
Cobweb, Moth, Mustardseed, and Pleaseblossom: Four tiny and Incredibly annoying fairies. Bertie's sidekicks.
Ariel: Seductive air spirit and Bertie's weakness. The symbol of impending doom.
Bertie: Our heroine.

Welcome to the Theatre Illuminata, where the characters of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Theatre 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.

I have about 100 pages left of the book and so far I am completely in love with it. I hope to finish the rest of it tonight so that I can post a review within the next couple of days.

"Going Too Far"
by Jennifer Echols

How Far Would You Go?
All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end livers. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far... and almost doesn't make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge- and over...
