Hey everybody! I think that I have hit a blogging slump because I have no idea what to blog about whatsoever, but don’t worry! I have posts that I haven’t published yet in my drafts and they are begging to be published. Plus, expect a lot of reviews and maybe a book themed playlist for my new WIP.
Don’t hid that you are freaking out. I need to see it.
When I First Saw You is a monthly linkup where the fabulous Sophie @ Sailing Through Books gives you FOUR covers and you get to make you OWN synopsis based on cover of the book. It is pretty much judging a book by its cover, but in a good way. You can check out how it works by clicking here.
Title: The Best Kind of Magic
Author: Crystal Cestari
Expected Publishing Date / Publisher: May 16th 2017 by Disney-Hyperion
Cosmo Chang has always seen himself as a magician. He didn’t care if he had embarrassed himself in front of his fifth grade class. He didn’t care if there was rabbit poop in his Grandfather’s magical hat. However, when you grow up it seems like the magic drains out of you.
Cosmo stopped believing in his Grandfather’s magic stories. There was no way that he could pull a rabbit out of his hat or a quarter from behind his ears. They were fake, mind tricks to be exact. Then, Grandfather dies. His last words were, “Do the magic for me.”
As Cosmo works at the town’s fun fair over the summer, he learns that magic can be anywhere in any form. Maybe magic is the girl that smack talked him when they were both on the ferris wheel together, getting stuck together. Maybe magic is the form of good things happening. Or maybe magic is in the form of bad things happening like breaking your leg by falling off of the dock and landing on a rock.
Wherever magic is hidden in, Cosmo is starting to wonder if it is real or not. Maybe his Grandfather was right? Was he right all along?
The Real Deal
Amber Sand is not a witch. The Sand family Wicca gene somehow leapfrogged over her. But she did get one highly specific magical talent: she can see true love. As a matchmaker, Amber’s pretty far down the sorcery food chain (even birthday party magicians rank higher), but after five seconds of eye contact, she can envision anyone’s soul mate.
Amber works at her mother’s magic shop–Windy City Magic–in downtown Chicago, and she’s confident she’s seen every kind of happy ending there is: except for one–her own. (The Fates are tricky jerks that way.) So when Charlie Blitzman, the mayor’s son and most-desired boy in school, comes to her for help finding his father’s missing girlfriend, she’s distressed to find herself falling for him. Because while she can’t see her own match, she can see his–and it’s not Amber. How can she, an honest peddler of true love, pursue a boy she knows full well isn’t her match?
The Best Kind of Magic is set in urban Chicago and will appeal to readers who long for magic in the real world. With a sharp-witted and sassy heroine, a quirky cast of mystical beings, and a heady dose of adventure, this novel will have you laughing out loud and questioning your belief in happy endings.
Okay, I am just going to say that both of these synopsis’s sounds super good. I really got the whole aspect of the magic right, and who wouldn’t by looking at the cover, and the whole magician part.
I really love how the real synopsis is set in Chicago, I love Chicago, and I think that the whole book sounds really romantic, really cute, and really interesting. I honestly can’t wait to read this when it comes out.
What do you think of The Best Kind of Magic? You won’t hurt my feelings, but who’s synopsis sounds better? Mine or the real one? Have you done WIFSY this month? If so, comment the link to your post below! I would love to see it!
