Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine! Every week book bloggers put the spotlight on an upcoming book they’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m looking way into the future at a book scheduled to be released in March 2013 by Dial Books for Young Readers. The Art of Wishing, a debut by Lindsay Ribar sounds like a pretty fun fantasy/contemporary read!
He can grant her wishes, but only she can save his life.
Margo McKenna has a plan of attack for everything, from landing the lead 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 love the whole genie-three wishes premise sounds refreshingly fun! Also, that cover is so cute! All in all, The Art of Wishing just sounds like a light-hearted romance that I’m in the mood for. If only it was March 2013!
