keeping you from reading it!
Here is mine:
Published: September 13, 2011
Purchased: September 13, 2011
Why I bought it:
I bought this after reading early reviews and editorial reviews claiming how excellent it was, plus I loved the cover!
Why I haven't read it:
I add it to my tbr pile each month and some how the next shiny cover catches my eye. It's almost like, I know it will be good so there is no rush to find out..does that even make sense?!?
First chapter thoughts:
The first chapter begins when a little girl named Celia, with wide eyes and brown hair, dressed in her best is delivered by a lawyer to the circus for Hector Bowen "aka Prospero the Enchanter" She has an envelope addressed to him pinned to her coat. The owner takes her to his trailer and serves her tea. When Hector arrives he grasps the note, stares at the girl and says, "She should have named you Miranda."
Quote: "The girl looks up at him again. Dark eyes narrow beneath her curls. The teacup on the desk begins to shake. Ripples disrupt the calm surface as cracks tremble across the glaze, and then it collapses in shards of flowered porcelain. Cold tea pools in the saucer and drips onto the floor, leaving sticky trails on the polished wood."
