How Not to Make a Wish by Mindy Klasky

How Not to Make a Wish by Mindy Klasky
Rating: 2.9/5

Synopsis: The AS YOU WISH SERIES shows what can go wrong when a magic lamp, a wish-granting genie, and backstage life in the theater all collide. HOW NOT TO MAKE A WISH (formerly titled THERE'S THE RUB) begins the series, introducing Kira Franklin, a stage manager caught in a dead-end dinner theater job when her true wish is to work on a production of Romeo and Juliet.

Review: I was more than excited when I heard of this book, but as I read it, I couldn't help but feel disappointed. The plot fell flat, and the characters didn't really reach out to me like I thought they would. It's been a month since I read this book so some things are a little fuzzy to remember. I'll refrain from doing my usual thoughts of the beginning, middle, and end of the book because I feel I can't do it justice (darn procrostination and school!). I'm not really sure how I feel about this one. I feel like I like some parts of it, but some others parts that aren't as good overshadowed my feelings for this one.

To end this review on a brighter note, the book had a great premise. It was a great story, but just told in a way that didn't appeal to me. It might to do other people so if you'd like, go check this one out! :)

FTC: Received this book for review from Other Shelf Tours. No bribery involved. Didn't keep this book so no need to sue me.

Sorry you didn't really care for this. It seemed like the plot was original, but too bad you didn't enjoy it.

Thanks for the review! :)

Is it just me, or does the woman on the cover sort of look like Stephenie Meyer? Sorry to hear you were disappointed with this. :-(
