Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

I love this series. I do, I do, I do. Bertie is a fun, if sometimes frustrating, character and her world is one I can happily get lost in. It makes me sad to see the series come to an end, but this means I get to do a reread of Eyes Like Stars and Perchance to Dream in preparation for So Silver Bright (which I was incredibly lucky to receive an ARC copy of a few weeks ago--thank you, Ksenia)! I'm partway through Eyes Like Stars now and you can expect reviews of all three closer to the release date of So Silver Bright. Since it's not out yet, I'll cheat and feature it.

(Also, I am eternally in love with the covers for the series. Jason Chan did a fantastic job with all of them!)

So Silver Bright
by Lisa Mantchev
September 13, 2011
320 pages (hardcover)

All Beatrice Shakespeare Smith has ever wanted is a true family of her own. And she’s close to reuniting her parents when her father disappears. Now Bertie must deal with a  vengeful sea goddess and a mysterious queen as she tries to keep her family – and the Theatre Illuminata – from crumbling. To complicate it all, Bertie is torn between her two loves, Ariel and Nate.
