I was talking with Basically Amazing Ashley the other day about Magic Under Glass (after I was talking with Jaclyn Dolamore, but that's another story, and I am a tease, so I'm not going to tell you about that yet...). Anywhoodle, it made me want to reread Magic Under Glass. And, um, relate a silly little story with you.
In June, when I was at ALA, my friend Evie and I were weaving our way through the crowds of ravenous readers, and I just happened to glimpse a familiar face. Jaclyn Dolamore*. So I abruptly left Evie (sorry, Evie!), turned around, completely interrupted the conversation Jacklyn was in, tapped her on the shoulder and said "Magic Under Glass." Not a question, just a Capt. Obvious statement to the author of said book. She just looked at me for a second and nodded. I said "High five!" and proceeded to do said thing. I think all of the people that were around her (including Maggie Stiefvater, who gave me a look and laughed) thought I was crazy, but I just felt the need to share a high-five with her. Her book made me happy, ya know?
And that was it. I came, I high-fived, I went back to the abandoned Evie and went on with ALAing.
Thinking about that little scenario was part of what made me want to reread the book; just being back in that mindframe, just shortly after I'd read it, and feeling the need to high-five the author. Like a total dork.
*If you've read my review of Magic Under Glass, you'll know why that face was familiar...
Anyway, I don't have the luxury of a quick reread at the moment, but that doesn't mean I can't share this CutenQuirkyGoodFunTime book trailer with you. And it doesn't mean you can't go pick up a copy and let me live vicariously through you...
