Waiting On Wednesday: The Art of Wishing (again)

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 a repeat, but it's the book I'm most anticipating this March - and it's my Birthday Book selection! Check it out:

The Art of Wishing

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: I get a SERIOUS Anna and the French Kiss vibe from this book - meaning a light, fun read that I will thoroughly enjoy. Can't wait to get my hands on it, and the sooner the better! If you have an ARC you'd be willing to trade, poke me on Twitter @skyelyte. (Yes, I'm that desperate right now. :)

So what book are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    1. You have excellent taste. ;) You're right, genie books are rare. The closest thing I can think of is The Bartimaeus Trilogy (he's a djinni), which I highly recommend.
