Monday Madness (6): Eyes Like Stars & Blue Moon

What is Monday Madness?

Well, it’s sort of like Waiting on Wednesday, except I will be featuring a book that will be released during the same week. So, I have some great books that I will be featuring along with Interviews from Authors, Book reviews and Contests for the books.

Stay tuned for more!

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Pub. Date: July 07, 2009
Age Range: Young Adult
Series: Theatre Illuminata Series

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.

Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning.

In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must chose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day...

Blue Moon Book Trailer


  1. I am super excited for both of these! I think I'm going to re-read Evermore before picking up Blue Moon, it kind of got meshed with Wicked Lovely because I read them both in the same day!

  2. Thanks for sharing the trailer! I hadn't seen it yet!

  3. I want to read both of them so bad! I think Blue Moon is going to be amazing.

  4. I love ELS! I just finished it last night at 1 AM! Can't wait to review it! Unfortunately review won't be up for a couple of weeks because this week's schedule is jammed pack!

  5. Both these books sound very intriguing. I still need to read Evermore


I want to hear from you, I promise I won't bite!
