Review for AS YOU WISH by Jackson Pearce

Cover ImageSummary: 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. (Summary from Barnes and Noble)

My Review: I excitedly dove into this book, looking for something to take my mind off of final exams, and general stress from high school. What I discovered did not fail to please. Viola turned out to be a love-able character whom I could connect on so many terms. She's clumsy, funny, crafty, and also wants to belong. And Jinn...oh Jinn..he's absolutely dreamy! A cute, strong, guy who just happens to be a mythological creature..what more could a girl ask for? Jackson Pearce did wonders with this book, surprisingly too since this was the first novel she published. It never failed in it's expectations, and I finished the book in less than two days. All in all, if you're looking for a quirky fun read, this is your type of book!
