Waiting on Wednesday (65)


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


So, it's been a very looooong time since I've done a WoW post, but I just had to share my book pick with y'all...

A Snicker of Magic
2/25/14
Scholastic

Introducing an extraordinary new voice---a magical debut that will make your skin tingle, your eyes glisten . . .and your heart sing.

Midnight Gulch used to be a magical place, a town where people could sing up thunderstorms and dance up sunflowers. But that was long ago, before a curse drove the magic away. Twelve-year-old Felicity knows all about things like that; her nomadic mother is cursed with a wandering heart.

But when she arrives in Midnight Gulch, Felicity thinks her luck's about to change. A "word collector," Felicity sees words everywhere---shining above strangers, tucked into church eves, and tangled up her dog's floppy ears---but Midnight Gulch is the first place she's ever seen the word "home." And then there's Jonah, a mysterious, spiky-haired do-gooder who shimmers with words Felicity's never seen before, words that make Felicity's heart beat a little faster.

Felicity wants to stay in Midnight Gulch more than anything, but first, she'll need to figure out how to bring back the magic, breaking the spell that's been cast over the town . . . and her mother's broken heart.

*************************************

Oh my cupcakes y'all! Ya know how sometimes you see a book and you're all "Hmm, yes this looks good. I would like very much to read it" *strokes beard and/or chin thoughtfully*...but then there are books that have you all "OHMYCUPCAKES! THIS BOOK CALLS TO ME AND WAS OBVIOUSLY MADE JUST FOR ME AND I MUST HAVE IT NOW *flails wildly*......well, A Snicker of Magic is definitely the latter for me! I love everything about this book-- the magical premise, the awesome middle-gradeness about it, the town name Midnight Gulch, AND THAT COVER! I seriously want to lick that cover (is that weird?!). I just can't even deal with all this "must have this book" feels right now. I cannot wait until Febuary and this sparkly little booger is in my hands!
