As You Wish

As You Wish by Jackson Pearce (August 25th 2009—Harper Teen)

Grade: 4.5 stars out of 5

Summary: “Ever since Viola’s boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wising—for someone to love her again and, most importantly, to belong again—until her wishes inadvertently summon a genie out of his world and into her own. But it’s only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she’s fallen in love with Jinn…and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.”

Review: Wow! It just seems that in the short of a few days I’ve uncovered a lost treasure trove of books. As You Wish was sweet but with a touch of sadness.

Viola goes through a breakup with a best friend since childhood because, you guessed it, he’s gay! It seems that all the good man are always gay, taken, or, you know, “mythical”. She goes through a change that leaves her sad, but just lonely. She can’t find her place where she belongs, giving herself the nickname Invisible Girl. Sure everyone’s nice to her but it felt that she’s not whole when Lawrence broke up with her. Then Jinn comes along…

Viola was a perfect main character. She grew throughout the entire novel. Jinn was such a swoonful man. In general I thought the progression of the storyline was smooth. This entire setup was nicely done that gave an ease of effortlessness. Magically delicious.

Honestly there isn’t much I can say about this book, just pick it when it comes out!

Overall: Awesome!

Cover C
I actually love the ARC cover more. It’s like they went from okay to bleck.
