This book straight-up annoyed me. Thoughts I had while reading this:

1. This author is trying too hard and it shows. Instead of telling a story she's stringing together pretty words.

2. This book is so sweet. Now it's saccharine. Now it's cloying.

3. How long has Felicity known Jonah? Less than a month? And she's saying he "always" does this or "never" does that. Really?

4. I'd rather be reading [b:Savvy|2133795|Savvy (Savvy, #1)|Ingrid Law|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1402594623s/2133795.jpg|2596626].

5. I can't take another "What the hayseed?" or "Spindiddly!"

5. I'd rather be reading anything else. I care not for what happens to these characters. I quit.

Okay, so I didn't finish a book with great reviews and a lot of fans. I just don't get it, folks. Too many characters, too many threads, not enough substance. ( )

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 eaves, 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.

It took me a little while to get into this one, probably because most of the middle-grade books I read are action-packed adventure ones. A Snicker of Magic is not an action-packed adventure. It's more of a colorful, slow-and-steady but magically immersive story.

What struck me the most as I read A Snicker of Magic is how perfect a read it is for kids who see the world a bit differently, especially kids with types of synesthesia. How wonderful to think that our differences in how we perceive the world could be "snickers of magic." Not just how we perceive the world, but our talents and skills and all the things that make is unique; feeling that those attributes are little bits of magic could give some kids a whole new outlook on life.

Note: I received a digital copy of this book through NetGalley. ( )

Magical adventure for the middle grade crowd. ( )

From the delightful wordsmithing, to the wonderful characters, to the really excellent slices of the magical world, this book has all the charm one can hope for. Featuring wacky ice cream flavors, poetic synesthesia and troop of kindness-spreading Beedles, this is the story of finding home and holding onto it with all your might. ( )

This is a fact I know to be true, thanks to all my world-weary travels: Making new friends, in a new place, when you’re the new girl, is harder than fractions.
Numbers tell all sorts of stories to some people, but they’ve never done so much as whisper at me.
The way he said her name made my heart cramp. In all my years of word collecting, I've learned this to be a tried and true fact: I can very often tell how much a person loves another person by the way they say their name. I think that's one of the best feelings in the world, when you know your name is safe in another person's mouth. When you know they'll never shout it out like a cuss word, but say it or whisper it like a once-upon-a-time.
So you keep catching them words, you hear? Pluck them out of the wind. String them together like the finest set of pearls. Line them up on paper. And if it hurts too much to say them, then you sing them, or whisper them, or write them into a story. But don't waste them. Your words matter more than you know.
Women who make you laugh, and who make you think, and who also happen to wear yellow flowers in their hair are always dangerous.
