Her wishes end up making her life anything but easier. How much you would enjoy this book really depends how you feel about clichéd romance.

Her wishes end up making her life anything but easier. Every wish seems to just turn into a huge fiasco – like when she wished away her extra thirty pounds, her family and friends began to think she was anorexic. How Not to Make a Wish sounded interesting when I read the back of the book, but I’m disappointed to say it was anything but. It was ridiculously predictable, and the plot really fell flat. I had a hard time trying to actually finish the entire book.

To Wish or Not to Wish (As You Wish). I wish we'd gotten a little more interaction between her and the love interest. For someone with not familiarity with the realities of professional theatre, those inaccuracies would be irrelevant, but I found them quite jarring.

The As You Wish Series shows what can go wron. How Not to Make a Wish introduces 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. When Good Wishes Go Bad shifts to producer Becca Morris who gets the lamp – and the opportunity to truly make a difference with a brilliant new play. To Wish or Not To Wish brings the lamp to Erin Hollister, an actress who struggles to land the musical theater role of her dreams. Fantasy Romance Sci-fi & Fantasy.

I've read many of Mindy Klasky's books ... all the Glasswright's books and several of the romances ... and liked them all at least reasonably well (some of them extremely well). This one, while pleasant, didn't seem to measure up to her other work.

The arc of the story was more predictable than I usually expect in Klasky's work, and the characters, other than the protagonist, seemed a little thin. The protagonist, however, was enjoyable -- quirky, nuanced, humorous and often quite self aware -- and her character arc was good. I wish we'd gotten a little more interaction between her and the love interest.

I have to confess, the book lost a star in my rating because it happens to be set in the industry in which I work -- and the details are largely wrong. For someone with not familiarity with the realities of professional theatre, those inaccuracies would be irrelevant, but I found them quite jarring. A few examples: The character is stage-managing a show, with a three-month rehearsal period. Never happens... many theatres are happy if they can afford three weeks! Set designers -- outside of community theatre -- don't build scenery, and don't attend rehearsals -- unlike the designer in the book. Set design decisions are made weeks or months before rehearsals begin -- not during rehearsals, as in the book. Director's can't change the date of opening without consulting the producing theatre. You could never open a show weeks before it's scheduled opening -- you wouldn't get the necessary technical rehearsals in! And so on. Trivial inaccuracies for most, I concede.

All that being said -- if the theatre-errors hadn't been a factor, I think I'd have liked this relatively well. I'll certainly buy the other books in the series, and I expect they'll be good fun.

This author must have a hell of a sense of humor in real life, because she can really put it into her books. I've read several already and loved each of them for keeping my mind occupied and in another world. You really will identify with her and her "family of familiars." I howled at one scene in which she barks through her newly found powers. Buy the series, they're romantic, too.

I enjoyed the way the book caught you up in it and took you for a ride. I read it in about 2 days and enjoyed every morsel. It tied up all the loose ends and you saw the characters grow before your eyes.

I am STRUGGLING to get through this book since I refuse not to read anything I spent money on....but it is really dumb! I was planning to buy the whole series, but not now. I like the author's other series though!

This book was an easy, fun read. A bit slow at times, but still entertaining. Was wishing I had my own genie after finishing the book. Purchased the next book right away!

I wouldn't give it to someone to read..

I was very excited when I heard Klasky was coming out with a new book. I've read all of her other novels and enjoyed them. This one did not disappoint. It takes you to that magical realm where you are granted wishes and even makes you wonder what you would do in the same situation. Also makes you realize that sometimes the old adage is true "be careful of what you wish for"
This book was really awful. The writing is painful, the main character is horrible, and the overall story is just bad. I've read better by this author and I expected this book to be pretty good. I was very disappointed.
