As You Wish

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 woul remain until she makes three wishes.

Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she ill not wish for the right stuf, the kin that could get her truly happy. As he two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn ca n't admit that he 's falling for Viola. But it 's only after Viola makes her first wish that she finds 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 ale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong... and how vital it is to be careful what you wishe for.

When I ought the book, I just expected a sweet and fun read which it was but it also had alot of heart.

it was perfect! A great feel good book!

Viola accidentally summons Jinn, because the wish in her heart to feel like belonging to someone or to some group wells up very strongly.

an he o back to the jinn world having no name and no real friends, living one perfect, eventless day after the other, knowing that Viola has forgotten the time spent with him? Viola can not pinpoint her disconnected feeling.

I love the normal and casual way in which Viola worms herself into Jinn 's business-like heart.

I love he fact that Jinn is the next to discover his feelings ( no weak heroine with questionable taste in males pining after the bad boy who treats her like dirt).

She learn through a change that leaves her sad, but just lonely.

Jinn was such a swoonful man.

his entire setup was nicely done that gave an ease of effortlessness.

I ’ ve ever read genies before – but loved Aladdin!

I don ’ t trul love him – would never fall to my knees in absolute awe – and actually thought him a bit bland.

As I think back on every dual-narrative I ’ ve ever read, I find I ’ ve never outright LOVED any book with two protagonist in the spotlight, both with their words being spilled upon the pages in first person.

I wonder why they don ’ t rite a third-person story – is it because the market isn ’ t as great?

I don ’ t now why I begi to read YA paranormal romance.

I don ’ t appreciate how many more times I can give a boring male X-species character, one more otherworldly and opportunity-blessed than the drab human girl, falling quickly in love with, yes, that drab human girl.

Whatever the name, though, it ha a fresh take on the alien species and more fun than another vampire story – even though I love the newest vamp lore as much as the next person.AS YOU WISH by Jackson PearceAudience: 10+ ( okay.

Viola Cohen wants to loo like she belongs to something bigger, someone special, someplace amazing.

But I forgot to belong only so I can ... feel complete again, instead of broken apart from losing Lawrence— “ As You Wish is a lovely and quick read.

I certainly like books with characters that grow up throughout the tal.

he moment when sparks flying between Viola and Jinn makes me ant to go ‘ aww ’ .I ’ m not often a fan of multiple POVs, but I like both Viola and Jinn ’ s voices in thi bestsellin.

As You Wish is a memoi that digs deeper beyond a story between a boy and a genie that fall in love.

It ’ s thi tory about finding your own happiness and discovering the real you. " I ca n't tak away unless you wish! " I shout, my temper finally at its breaking point.
