Dusty Reads [2]

Dusty Reads [2]
hosted by Xpresso Reads

Dusty Reads is a weekly meme, hosted by Giselle at Xpresso Reads, featuring a book that has been sitting unread on our home shelf for some time.

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
"All her world’s a stage.

Bertie 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. That is, until now.

Enter Stage Right
NATE. Dashing pirate. Will do anything to protect Bertie.
COBWEB, MOTH, MUSTARD SEED, and PEASEBLOSSOM. 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 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.

Lisa Mantchev has written a debut novel that is dramatic, romantic, and witty, with an irresistible and irreverent cast of characters who are sure to enchant the audience.
Open Curtain"

I bought this one because the cover looks really good. Sadly, I hadn't had the urge to pull it off my shelf and start flipping the pages. 


  1. Ooh I love this cover!! I haven't seen this one before I'll have to take a look on GR! :)
