My Pick This Week Is...

As You WishAs You Wish
By Jackson Pearce
Published by HarperTeen, September 1, 2009
304 pages

"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." - Goodreads

Why was this added to my TBR list? It sounds like a cute, uplifting story that I could love. I really enjoy these types of stories with romance and a quirky setting. So, this sounds like my cup of tea. Who could resist the temptation of this book?

Have you ever seen or read this book? Would you be interested in it? Recently what book has made it to your To-Be-Read list?
Thanks for reading....


  1. Ugh. I read (some) of this book, thinking it would be good. And the writing and plot was-it was just WAY to adult. And I don't mean there were bad words...I stopped reading when Viola made her first wish. Now, just because I didn't like it doesn't mean you won't. Also, thanks for recomending Ally Carters books! They are amaxing!

  2. I liked this book! I didn't love it, but I thought it was sweet and light. Jinn grew on me and I liked his friendship with Viola's ex.

  3. Shelby - Oh sorry you didn't like it! I'll probably still try it but I'll be wary. Thanks for the heads up! And your very welcome.. I loved them too! Thanks for stopping by!

    Small - I'm glad you liked it, I hope I get to read it! I happen to love light and sweet books... Thanks for coming by!
