Waiting on Wednesday

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.

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 know we're on a fairy kick, but really? Shakespeare and fairies together is a bookworm's dream come true. That cover is also utterly fantastic. We're waiting on this one with bated breath (Note: that is the correct spelling of bated). The Bard and his characters come to life, and that certainly can't be bad. Shakespeare said "All the world's a stage," which just means that everything is really a story, and this is one I don't want to miss.

This looks like a really cool read! And oh my goodness, I used to spell "bated", "baited" until a friend told me I was wrong. I'm glad you guys know how to spell it!:D

Lisa- We are way excited. Thanks for commenting it means so much that you commented. You're the first author to post about her own book-amazing.

Melanie- I had to double-check which is why I put the parenthetical in the sentence. I love the internet, it saves me from horrible spelling mistakes. ; )

I love this book like chocolate banana cream pie with whipped topping. Which is to say, if that weren't already obvious, a whole lot. It is so much FUN. And then it sneaks up on you and breaks your heart. And then is FUN all over again.

RJ loved it like PIE. *happy dance*

I have a memory like a sieve... do you have an ARC, or do you need one?
