Couple of Mini Reviews

As You Wish, by Jackson Pearce (2 Bookmarks)

Cute book, readable, definitely great for the tween/young teen age. But I feel as if I'd read this book before. Viola is the MC who unknowingly wishes to be seen. Well voila, enter a Genie (or Jinn) who stalks her at first and demands that she make her requisite three wishes. Reason why Viola made wish. Her ex-boyfriend/best friend has come out of the closet and is more interested in the same sex. What is Viola to do? I think you know where this goes. Jinn (as she names him) is beautiful, ethereal, blah blah blah... You see where I'm going here?

The Van Alen Legacy, Melissa de la Cruz (2 Bookmarks)

Schuyler and Oliver are on the run, Mimi is hooking up with Silver Blood and Bliss is surprise Allegra's daughter, who has some visitor in her body.  This book was broken up in three parts.  Schuyler, Mimi and Bliss.  Bliss annoyed the hell out of me.  She was not herself for most of the book because of this crazy sub-plot where she has been taken over by whoknowswhat.  Mimi is Mimi and is looking for the watcher.  Mimi also finds herself extremely drawn to the reformed Silver Blood, Kingsley Martin even though she should be bonded to her 'brother' Jack.  I love the mythos of this story.  Fallen angels, Caligula, being reborn over and over again.  Charles Force aka Michael.  Allegra Van Alen aka Gabriel, Jack Force aka Abbadon, Mimi Force aka Azrael.  But these past two books have been literally going nowhere.  Yes, there is action and romance, but I'm more confused than ever. 


  1. Such a sad thing you didn't enjoy As You Wish. I heard it was really cute and I really want to read it.

  2. Its very hard feeling that you have not enjoy this as you want.
