Waiting on Wednesday: The Art of Wishing

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: The Art of Wishing
Author: Lindsay Ribar
Release Date: March 21, 2013
Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

Why I'm Looking Forward To It: This sounds like a light and fun read, which is something I'm always scrounging to find in our current time of paranormal angst addiction. And who wouldn't like a book about a hot guy who grants a girl wishes? ;)

So what's your "waiting on" pick this week?

  1. The Art of Wishing is one of my choices for the 2013 debut challenge! I'm definitely picking this one because it sounds so unique. I've only read like one book about genies in YA Fiction. Nice pick! :D New follower via GFC. Would love it if you could return the favor.

    Here's my WoW.
