BookWhisperer Rating:

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 genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.

But Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she won’t wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, Jinn can’t deny that he’s slowly 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 makes her final two wishes, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.

As You Wish is incredibly fun and fast paced novel. It is a journey that ends almost as quickly as it started, and will leave the reader with a feeling of contentment. Regretably, I lack any major positive for negative comments about any of this book. I enjoy novels such as these; they allow a fast and funny story that did not require much mental effort to unfold. Sometimes book addicts need a vacation from deep stories; sometimes we all need a little glimpse of happiness and fairytales.
