As You Wish
By Jackson Pearce
Blurb from Goodreads: "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."
This was such a cute book. I read it in a single sitting, on a day I was home sick. It's light and funny and just plain fun to read.
It alternates point of view between Viola and Jinn, and it's done flawlessly. Never once did I find myself confused about who's head I was in. Which is awesome, because that can be hard to do!
I loved the character development in the story. Viola grows and learns so much through the course of the book, and so does Jinn. Best of all, it feels genuine. Their growth comes because of genuine concern for others, and real learning moments.
You should definitely pick this up if you're in the mood for a quick, fun read.
