As You Wish by Chelsea Sedoti

Ashley’s first review of the year

*I received this for review from NetGalley

CW: Homophobia
TW: attempted suicide

While I loved the writing, I had a few problems with this book. I didn't like Eldon, I thought that he was mean, I also wasn't a fan of his mother either. I felt that she was way too pushy when it came to Eldon and his wish. I also didn't like that there was language that is considered offensive. While the use of offensive language is challenged, I still can't get passed

Ashley’s last review of the year

liked it
*12/31/19 Update: I don't know why, but I enjoyed reading this so much more this time around.

*12/31/18 Update: I still ship Albus and Scorpius, the time turners still bother me as does Voldemort and Bellatrix having a child. And yet, despite the flaws and not being able to see the play, I still enjoyed reading this.

While I enjoyed reading this, there were things that I loved and things that kind of bothered me. I'm going to start off with things
