Book Review #337 - As You Wish (Genies #1) by Jackson Pearce

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 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.

My Rating: 3/5

I have been aware of this book for a while. I put off reading it because I thought that the concept of it was a little immature. It definitely has a fairytale kind of feel to it throughout.

There is not much depth to this story at all which is what I liked about it. It was just a fun and quick read.

The relationship between Viola and Jinn was interesting because you were able to see both perspectives because of the split chapters.

It didn't exactly end the way that I thought it was going to which was a big positive.

I probably would recommend it more for the younger portion of YA readers as they will get the most enjoyment out of it.
