As You Wish by Jackson Pearce

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.

What an AMAZING debut novel! It had me up all night finishing it. Jinn? Super sexy AND can grant you anything-now that's the kind of guy I need! Holy crap, Jackson Pearce is hilarious. Her writing style is inviting and intoxicating. Humor mixed with a sweet love story makes this novel seriously irresistible.

And how cool is it that a younger girl I know just read this book, and let me tell you she doesn't read a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g! And she loved it! Yay for reluctant readers finding something (really great) in this novel!

Jinn just might be my new fictional character crush. I know that this review is really informal but I feel like a gushing school girl telling her best friend about her first (or fiftieth) crush.

So if you haven't read As You Wish, WHY NOT? Go pick it up! Now!

Rating: 5.0

Happy Reading!

P.S. Jackson Pearce is way too cool for words. She teaches color guard. I teach color guard! This somehow makes me feel cooler. Haha! And I definitely sent her an email telling her all of this-in much detail.
