Wishful Thinking by Amanda Ashby

Wishful Thinking by Amanda Ashby
"After Sophie accidentally gets herself turned into a djinn, she starts to think that it might not be so bad after all. (Of course, that's after she gets the whole orange skin problem sorted out.) Who wouldn't enjoy having the power to grant wishes! But when Sophie develops RWD (Random Wish Disorder) and can't STOP granting wishes, things get more than a little mixed-up!"- summary from Amazon

I so love Ashby's books. There's always such a wonderful humorous voice paired with the paranormal aspect, this time involving a genie. Ashby did a great job getting Sophie's voice just right and I had problems putting the book down.

I really enjoyed the various relationships in the book. Sophie's friends were the best and I loved reading scenes with them. I also liked the presence of Sophie's mom in the book and it brought up a couple more serious issues (finances, moving, Sophie's dad leaving). I also liked Malik's character and laughed a lot when he was on the page.

Overall, a start to a really fun series. I have Book 2 as well and cannot wait to read it. Also, the third book is out Oct 11! So get reading!
