Eyes Like Stars Review

Summary:Enter Stage Right All her world's a stage. Beatrice Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater. She is not an orphan, but she has no parents. She knows every part, but has no lines of her own. Until now. Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the characters of every place 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.

My Feelings: Eyes like stars is mesmerizing.I feel in love with every character in this book especially the funny and wild faeries that are Betrices #1 Sidekicks.Beatrice is a a hardheaded 17 year old who's lived in the Théâtre for almost her whole life she's quite a individual with her dyed Cobalt blue hair and spunky attitude that always seems to get her in to a lot of Shenanigans.(God I love saying that word).Nate is a charming pirate with a cute accent he's also is very protective over Beatrice. Aerial is a handsome and somtimes very annoying air spirt that happens to be my second favorite character in this book which is really weird because he barley has in personalty in this book until the very end but somehow his few parts in the book seemed like the best. I am a big fan of love triangles so when I was happy when saw the love triangle between Beatrice,Nate and Ariel now it's got me wondering who Beatrice is going to pick but I've got a feeling I know.
Overall: Eyes like Stars is a blend of laughs,magic,mystery and self-discovery I am so glad that I have the second book in this trilogy because I can't jump right into where I left off .
