Magic Under Glass {A Review}

Book: Magic Under Glass
Author: Jaclyn Dolamore
Rating: 4 out of 5
Cover Rating: 4 out of 5

"Magic Under Glass" was a book that I was really looking forward to reading, and I had high expectations for it. I am so happy that my expectations were met! "Magic Under Glass" is about a girl who suddenly finds herself in an expensive palace hired to dance with an automaton. The reason that she was hired, was because all of the ladies that had been hired before were scared away. At first, the girl believes it was just silly nonsense. However, she begins to see that it is so much more than that, but rather than running away like the other girls, she stays and begins to uncover the secret of the automaton.

"Magic Under Glass" kept me reading and was so different than the average young adult book! It had the elements to make it a great read - a little bit of romance, a great plot, interesting twists, and a whole lot of mystery! At times it was a little bit creepy as well! This is a book that I really enjoyed.


I love the cover of this has a very historical feel to it and the colors are great! However, I do wish that they would have portrayed the girl on the cover as the same ethnic as the girl in the book. What do you think?
