"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.

Jackson Pearce spins a magical tale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong . . . and how important it is to be careful what you wish for."

Overall Thoughts:

I found As You Wish Jackson Pearce, to be a very charming and sweet novel. Her writing style is amazing.
I related to Viola and what she was going through. Dealing with the aftermath of a bad break-up with Lawrence who is also her best friend.

She is sitting in her English class wishing to not feel so broken anymore. That she could feel the way she did before the break-up. In doing so she summons a Genie to grant her three wishes. When she firsts spot Jinn she doesn't know who he is or why he's there. Not till going home does she found out why she's seeing him.
Viola finds it hard to come up with three wishes on the spot because of feeling invisible.

She does make her wishes. But while spending time with Jinn. They develop feelings for one another. I loved how their feelings came to be.

All and all I loved this story, and I'm glad I read it. As You Wish was Jackson's debutant novel in 2009. I'm looking forward to reading more from her.

So go and pick it up now. Gave it 5/5 stars!! I love the cover as well!!

Hope you enjoyed my review, Ashley
