As You Wish --- Jackson Pearce



As You Wish  By: Jackson Pearce
Rating: 4/5 Stars --- Good!

Ever since Viola's boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.



Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can't deny that he's falling for Viola. But it's only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she's in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.




Jackson Pearce spins a magical tale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong . . . and how important it is to be careful what you wish for.


My Review: Very good tale. I love this book, as there was not as much love as magic (People who know me know I think books get too <3 and less *Magic!*  Anyway. I am a little confused on Viola. She seemed to act a little...mature for her age, but I guess that's okay. I really like the writing style, and how the reader was also shown Jinn's P.O.V! Okay, now cutting to one of my favorite parts. The cover. I love the font of 'Wish' and the girl's face. It perfectly related to this story, and it was actually what made me try this book out! I hear there is a small short story sequal, which I may try, I would love a whole second book, but I don't know if this is too much to ask for. :\ Well, anyway I love this book. And it is something I would recommend. I bet your wishing I end this. XD So as Jinn always says, "As you wish."




In a little wishing world, Natasha
