My To-Be Read List 12/7

Posted December 7, 2013 by Michelle in My TBR List / 2 Comments

I have SOOOOOOOOO many books on my TBR list 
I decided that instead keeping it to myself I would share with all of you. 
I put most of these books on for a reason, some I have no idea why they are there 😉 
maybe it’s a book you read and HATED 
or a book you LOVED and want me to read NOW 
or a book you never heard of. 
I figured… 
I will randomly pick one book each week to share with you 🙂 
Wow it’s been a while since I was able to share a book with you from My TBR List.
Had a lot going on the last couple of Saturdays but I am happy to report if this was a feature on my blog you enjoyed it is back 🙂
This Weeks pick I actually remember picking from the synopsis and the cover. 
We read a lot of books about magic and the main characters amazing ability with magic
but what if the enter books revolves around magic but the main character has NONE!


Ordinary Magic

by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway
Hardcover, 277 pages
Published May 8th 2012 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens (first published May 1st 2012)

In Abby’s world, magic isn’t anything special: it’s a part of everyday life. So when Abby learns that she has zero magical abilities, she’s branded an “Ord”—ordinary, bad luck, and quite possibly a danger to society.


The outlook for kids like Abby isn’t bright. Many are cast out by their families, while others are sold to treasure hunters (ordinary kids are impervious to spells and enchantments). Luckily for Abby, her family enrolls her in a school that teaches ordinary kids how to get around in a magical world. But with treasure-hunting kidnappers and carnivorous goblins lurking around every corner, Abby’s biggest problem may not be learning how to be ordinary—it’s whether or not she’s going to survive the school year!

How cute does that synopsis sound?
I find books to be really fascinating when they take an idea 
that is used so many times and completely flip it. 
I’m going to assume this is a Middle Grade books 
Really thinking I might want to read this one sooner rather then later. 
So…. 
Have you heard of this book? 
Have you read it? 
If so, is it something I should read soon or not read at all? 
Lets Chat 🙂 
Thanks for stopping by this weeks My To Be Read List 
Check back next Saturday for a new featured book!!
