The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar
March 21st 2013
Find it on Goodreads

Margo McKenna has a plan of attack for everything, from landing the part she wants in her high school musical to dealing with her increasingly absent parents. But when she finds herself in possession of a genie’s ring and the opportunity to make three wishes, she doesn’t know what to do. Especially since Oliver – not blue-skinned, not bottle-dwelling, but a genie nonetheless – can see more than what she’s willing to show him. With one peek into her mind, he can see the wishes that even Margo herself doesn’t know she wants.

But Oliver comes with more than just mind-reading abilities, a flair for magic, and the prettiest eyes Margo’s ever seen. Someone from his past is hunting him – someone bent on killing him, along with all the other genies in the world, for the sake of honor. And as Margo soon discovers, it will take more than three wishes to save him.

A whole lot more.

I don't know why, but I love books about genies and wishes. Genies just fascinate me! It may be because I watched Aladdin a lot growing up (you know you did too, it's an awesome film). Anyway, I am very intrigued by this book. Especially since a genie isn't your usual immortal love interest (I assume he's immortal? Genies are generally hundreds of years old, right?). Sounds like this book has a perfect mix of fun, magic and mystery with a good romance (hopefully) too. Can't wait to read it. Plus, look at that cover. Look at it. Do I even need to point out how awesome it is?

What are you waiting on this week?
