      I justwhat the FUCK were they thinking when they designed the cover It seems to go from bad to worse in its progression from ARC to real book, frankly.

    2. Kristi on said:

      I ve admired Jackson as a writer before I even read her novel And now that I ve actually read one of her novels, the admiration continues She s a genius Funny, off the wall, talented writer I loved Viola I saw so much of myself in her, it was scary Remembering how it feels to be absolutely invisible, and not even being able to see yourself clearly Very real teen characters, dealing with even realistic situations, you know, despite the whole magical aspect As You Wish is a light and fun read, bu [...]

    3. Michelle on said:

      With well developed characters and a unique, seamlessly written plot, Pearce lends weight to what could be, in less deft hands, a chick lit cliche Instead, As You Wish is a quick, enchanting read with unexpected depth and subtle but important messages about identity, self respect, and what it means to really belong A fantastic book for avid and reluctant readers alike

      Reviewed on the first day of Christmas 2009 The year is almost over and, frankly, I did not expect to stumble across another perfect book I believed my quota was full Well, what is Christmas for, if not for miracles As You Wish is my kind of teenage urban fantasy love story, Jinn is my kind of supernatural hero I would have wished for him to stay as well, if I were sixteen and Viola is the best kind of heroine kind and funny with flaws.The story is told in turns by Viola and Jinn, who actually d [...]

      Loved it When I bought this book, I just expected a sweet and fun read which it was but it also had alot of heart It was not only a story about love but also about belonging and self image It is an effortless read that I didn t want to put down I love the dual narration, allowing us to get to know both characters thoughts and feelings as they developed a friendship which then grew into love Viola is a likeable and realistic character, feeling broken and invisible Watching her grow and become co [...]

      Wow It just seems that in the short of a few days I ve uncovered a lost treasure trove of books As You Wish was sweet but with a touch of sadness Viola goes through a breakup with a best friend since childhood because, you guessed it, he s gay It seems that all the good man are always gay, taken, or, you know, mythical She goes through a change that leaves her sad, but just lonely She can t find her place where she belongs, giving herself the nickname Invisible Girl Sure everyone s nice to her b [...]

      TThe story was captivating and completely original The writing was humorous in some areas and deep in others It s on of the most perfect light reads ever I wanted to read it again once I finished I recommend this book for anyone.

      I read Jackson Pearce s AS YOU WISH back to back with Malinda Lo s ASH, and I m going to write about what an interesting experience that was when we review the books at length next week on the Beautiful Creatures site Quickly, though, it s amazing how smart and how different and how completely excellent two talented twists on loosely the same genre can be More on that to come Jackson Pearce is a lightning fast genius, funny, slick, who puts very real teen characters in the midst of a rollicking [...]

      Viola s story was one I ve heard much about I ve never read genies before but loved Aladdin and was curious enough to finally pick AYW up I can t say I m regretting my decision, but I do have a few qualms.I m not sure why this was rated YA lit In all honesty, Viola, despite being a teenager on the brink of adulthood, just seemed plain and a little young for her age Her quest for belonging was, although one every teenager struggles, a little immature That being said, I don t know anybody who s be [...]

      Tres deseos S , al parecer he salido de mi mala racha de lecturas con este librito que me prestaron Pues simplemente es bonico As no m s Qu bueno que me decid a leerlo Vale, que ya les digo las razones Si pudiera descubrir porqu se encasillan, podr a averiguar por qu yo no lo hago, por qu me he convertido en una chica invisible El tipo de chica que tiene unos cuantos amigos y un mont n de conocidos, pero no pertenece a nada en concreto Supongo que ser invisible es mejor que fingir formar parte d [...]

      I was blown away Seriously Jackson Pearce has written an amazing debut novel I m already a fan The story is new, original, surpring, and shocking I read it in one sitting.The story is told from both of the main characters points of views, Viola and Jinn, so you get an understanding of the differences between their worlds and thoughts Most of my favorite novels are with alternating views It s amazing to watch their relationship grow from both sides and to watch as their hidden longing for one ano [...]

      Entertaining, Amusing, Heart Warming, Brilliant Perfect I can t believe how much I absolutely love this book It has this over whelming, amazing, ear to ear goofy grin, feel that just makes you want to curl up and read it all over again This was just suppose to be a random book I picked up, a chaser, to take a break from my paranormal shots But this was so much As You Wish is a beautiful story that makes you think about what really defines the real you It takes you on a journey of self discovery [...]

      I was so pleasantly surprised by this one I got it for a light, relaxing read and therefore was not expecting something of such high quality The writing was flawless with crisp, lovely prose The characters were all nuanced and 3D and flawed and likeable Pearce shows so well all their struggles and aches and feelings without ever once stepping into clich d territory.The romance was not an over the top paranormal love but a lovely tingly crush and blooming love The world building was flawless it r [...]

      Me apetec a algo totalmente distinto a lo que suelo leer y, la verdad, me ha gustado mucho m s de lo que me esperaba No acostumbro a dar puntuaciones altas a los chick lit, pero este casi llega al 3 5 5 Tres deseos es la historia de Viola, una chica invisible y desesperada por encontrar su lugar en el mundo, y Genio, un chico desesperado por cumplir sus tres deseos y largarse de vuelta a Caliban, su mundo invisible Es un giro original al tradicional no podemos estar juntos porque somos de mundos [...]

      I had high hopes for As You Wish and I can safely say that Jackson Pearce did not disappoint As You Wish is told in alternating chapters between Viola and Jinn Jinn by the way is the name Viola calls him but he is really a jinn and has no name Jackson Pearce kept me hooked onto As You Wish from the first page Viola has this fresh honest voice which I love Her thoughts and feelings were evident and heartfelt Reading the book in Jinn s POV gave me a good idea on how he was feeling and his intentio [...]

    20. Lamia on said:

      Okay, so you may think the synopsis looks ridiculous You may be right But the delivery was surprisingly well done I mean, don t get me wrong, this isn t a deep, insightful read with a progressive build up of the main protagonists relationship But the narrator was relatable and actually learned from her mistakes, and I liked her relationship with Jinn It was all super cute and adorable, if a bit rushed but like I said, the tone is deliberately light so depth is not what you re looking for here I [...]

      Surprise That was the general feeling once I got hooked in this book Bad PJ judged this book by it s cover and the silly little synopsis on the jacketbut what was I supposed to do Both the cover and synopsis screamed candy coated teen chick lit As You Wish while giving the impression of a shallow, quick little read, was anything but Well, yes, it was quick, but I wouldn t call it shallow As You Wish is a very poignant tale of a young girl struggling with her social standing and her self image Sh [...]

    22. Tammie on said:

      I loved the message of happiness and feeling whole coming from within oneself and not from external influences that was found in As You Wish The romance was sweet and I got the sense that Jinn really did love Viola I liked the way he just held her in his arms, instead of rushing into passionate kissing The one part where Viola tells Jinn, who doesn t sleep, that he can stay but that he can t watch her sleep all night, because that would be weird, really cracked me up and made me think of Twiligh [...]

    23. Jessica on said:

      Rating clarification 3.5 starsA very cute but slightly clich d YA love story.I don t have much to say about this one but if you re looking for a funny, sweet and light read, a cute romance that will make you smile and go aaaw, then this is the book for you A perfect pastime for rainy days.

      Sounds like the synopsis for the next Disney movie, right Maybe but it s one that would appeal to both the children AND the parents AS YOU WISH took me by surprise with its sincere charm, lighthearted humor, and the best kind of romance.The development of Viola and Jinn s from master genie to romantic love was extraordinarily well done It was subtle and likable, like a romantic comedy movie unfolding before your eyes, except in words It seemed completely natural for them to start off wary of one [...]

      I am very disappointed with this book First let me say that I love Jackson Pearce as a person I watch her YouTube videos all the time and I think she s hilarious I ve always meant to read her books ever since I ve heard of her Unfortunately, this book doesn t do it for me It s like every other YA novel out there except with genies The story was mediocre and I didn t really care for the characters Especially Viola Oh my God, was she annoying She did nothing but complained about how lonely she is [...]

      When Viola s best friend and boyfriend came out to her and they broke up, she felt like she would never be whole again All she wished for was to stop being Invisible Girl and find the group where she fit in But when a genie arrives to grant her three wishes, Viola can t decide what will make her happy And the longer she puts off wishing, the she grows to like Jinn But she has to wish eventually and when she does, Jinn will leave her world forever.I was really afraid that my expectations would b [...]

      Lei este libro hace mucho tiempo y no lo tenia marcado en Porque ni idea.El punto es que la protagonista no me gusto nada.Genio si me gusto mas como personaje, a el no le gustaba estar en la tierra porque envejecia y eso le dio algo a la historia.Pasa algo como que mega magico al final Y bueno el libro es bueno, si quieres pasar el rato, este es tu libro.Si le pongo dos estrellas, es porque el libro no es nada memorable, los personajes no te dejan huella, y no me deja un valor sentimental ni nad [...]
