Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev:
(Blurb by Traveling To Teens)

Beatrice Shakespeare Smith has lived for as long as she can remember in the Theatre Illuminata – a magical place where the characters of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. She is not a player herself, and when management thinks she’s starting to upset the balance of the theatre, she’s tasked with making an invaluable contribution or leaving. So Beatrice decides to do what she knows best – stage a play. But it’s not going to be easy, and there are forces at work against her…

O.M.G. I so want to read this! I was in Theatre all four years of high school, and I loved it - I have a small playbook, As You Like It, thats over 100 years old. And bringing so many characters together! I would love to see how the cast of this book gets along.

The Demons Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan:
(Blurb by Traveling to Teens)

Nick and his brother, Alan, have spent their lives on the run from magic. Their father was murdered, and their mother was driven mad by magicians and the demons who give them power. The magicians are hunting the Ryves family for a charm that Nick's mother stole -- a charm that keeps her alive -- and they want it badly enough to kill again.

Danger draws even closer when a brother and sister come to the Ryves family for help. The boy wears a demon's mark, a sign of death that almost nothing can erase...and when Alan also gets marked by a demon, Nick is desperate to save him. The only way to do that is to kill one of the magicians they have been hiding from for so long.

Ensnared in a deadly game of cat and mouse, Nick starts to suspect that his brother is telling him lie after lie about their past. As the magicians' Circle closes in on their family, Nick uncovers the secret that could destroy them all.

This is the Demon's Lexicon. Turn the page.

I love books that contain some aspect of magic, demon/angel, faerie... anything sci-fi, really. And the flow of the book seems to be fast paced and exciting - a great book for me to read in one sitting in the middle of the night. Excitement abounds!

  1. Having been privileged to read an ARC of both ELS and DL, I can say in perfect honesty they both absolutely ROCK. These are definitely two authors to watch.
