MMGM: A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd

Here is the review for A Snicker of Magic!

Plot Summary:

Felicity Pickle loves words. She can see them floating over people's heads. Her family never settles down; they are always moving around. So when her family settles down in her mom's hometown, Midnight Gulch, Felicity discovers that there is still a snicker of magic left in the town, and it is up to her and her new friend Jonah to find it.


A Snicker of Magic is a heartwarming book, but nothing more. I didn't connect with the characters, and I don't think it is anything special. It's good, but in my opinion a waste of time because there are much better books out there. It just seemed fake, with kids who act like adults, and a nail place/ oil change place (???) . Also, let's be honest, who says "what the hayseed"?  Like seriously, who says that?


  1. Thank you for your honest review! I had a hard time getting into this one myself. I'm not sure what it was.

  2. This one is on my TBR list. I'll leave it there for now but your review and Jenni's comment made push it a little further under the pile. Thanks for your thoughts.

  3. Thanks for an honest view of this book. I've been meaning to read it. Maybe I'll wait a while.

  4. I've see this one around Amazon a lot, but I was never interested. Looks like I was right.

  5. Sometimes quirky books are awesome, and sometimes they're just weird. This sounds like a book I might like, but I've felt that way about a lot of books that turned out to be too weird or too silly for me. When it gets to our library I'll check it out (pun intended!).
