Cute and Quirky GoodFunTime

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...


  1. You know what's awesome...

    High fiving authors!

  2. That is hilarious! I've been wanting to read this one for awhile now. My library doesn't carry it and I'm too cheap to buy it...but I may have to now with this reminder of how awesome it is!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
