Read in January, 2012

After reading Jackson's other two books, I knew I had to read her first book. At first, it looked a little ho-hum, nothing to make it stand out from another YA book with magic in it. Jackson Pearce being Jackson Pearce, I opened it anyway.
It was completely different than I had expected and rang very true to real life.
If I was given three wishes, I'd immediately think to wish for something like a jar of nutella, or maybe a brand new book. After I'd gotten over the initial shock of a bored (although verrryyy handsome jinn) appearing in my life, I'd realise that these are stupid, pointless wishes. Even if I tried to wish for something that wasn't stupid and pointless, it would have awful repercussions.
As I continued to dive deeper into As You Wish, I fell in love with Jinn (and followed his mood-swings), smiled and cried with Viola, and looked on the whole thing much as Lawrence did.
When I reached the final page, I was terribly sad that it was over, however satisfying the ending was.
I cannot wait to read it again!
