I received this book free from Library Thing to read and review. When I began the book, I had second thoughts about the book, but they disappeared almost immediately. Everyone knows what a genie is wants to have one, but that is just wishful thinking. In this story, wishful thinking becomes reality as Em and Logan find they jointly are masters of a genie. Having a genie would be great, but having to share a genie? That might not be so easy, especially since both have to say the wish at the same time. The author has developed a creative plot where two ordinary teenage girls meet up with and share a genie, called Eugene. In the story, they go through a series of antics that are both unusual and funny as they figure out what exactly to do with the genie. The author has created two very believable ordinary teenage girls with the problems teenagers encounter. From the get go, this book held my interest, through page after page of their having and working with the genie. I found the book a welcome respite from all the serious dramas, love triangles and paranormal plots I've been reading lately. It was pure, welcomed fantasy and made me remember all the I Dream of Jeannie shows from years gone by. If you are looking for a welcome relief from life's trials and tribulations as well as a thoroughly enjoyable story, this book is for you. The author definitely shows creativity and promise.

I read My Wishful Thinking by Shel Delisle a few weeks ago. I'm a fan of her books ever since Dolphin Girl and Winging It! so I was very excited when she came out with My Wishful Thinking. And it sure didn't disappoint!
Logan (Lo for short) is a girl with a lot of problems. But..she deals with them. She doesn't think anything can change when she's working for her aunt's store and talking to her only company, Betsy, Trudy, and Monnique. Did I mention they were mannequins?
Like I said..a lot of problems and boredom going on for Lo at the moment.
However something maybe about to happen when a strange man walks in offering to sell his super heavy bag. (Seriously, what's IN that thing?) And Lo gets creeped enough about the bag that she call her best friend Em and together (with much struggle) they open it, summoning a magical (and cute) genie, Eugene. After much screaming and trying to throw Betsy the Mannequin's head at him they soon figure out how much incredible power they have.
Except for one problem.
Both Lo and Em are Eugene's masters.
You're in for a big adventure and lots of laugh out loud moments when you read this book. I absolutely loved it and finished it the night I first read it. An easy read and lots of fun as we figure more about Lo's background and how one incredibly handsome genie can sure change a girls life. It's up to them if they take advantage of it...or do the right thing.
A 5. Was really fast paced and kept me turning. Anyone would enjoy a great book like this!

I started reading this on a rather warm and sunny day, I was looking for something light and fun. I decided that this might satisfy my hunger. And I can surely tell you that I have not regretted it one bit. This book was hilarious at times, it is a chicklit with a paranormal twist.

The characters were very enjoyable Logan, is a skeptic, even though she doesn't pass up the opportunity to make a wish. She is skeptical about lots of things in life but it gets worst when a genie pops up out of a bag.

Logan finds mister Genie, or Eugene (aka Vash) as he calls himself, very annoying and a pain in the butt. This makes for great banter between the two of them, which lead to hilarious moments. And of course me laughing out loud.

Emily is the complete opposite of Logan, she beliefs in the magic of the genie in the back. The only downside to this story was that sometimes there were pieces missing, or it felt that way. It let to me having to reread pieces of the book.

The title of this book says it all. This was a great read all around, from a genie who grants wishes to an evil magician trying to get him back and a confused, scared young woman. A little magic, a little love story and some life lessons learned. I would recommend this one to everyone.

Good story for an easy read or the preteen/teen age. I found the story fun enough to entertain me. It was fairly predictable; could have given more "history" behind the genie - that would have been fun and interesting. Some grammatical errors, but not enough to ruin the read.

I absolutely loved this book. The author took an age old story and re-imagined it for a modern age. She made the characters lovable and vulnerable. They are the kind of girls that if I was their age I could see myself hanging out with them! Bravo Bravisimo! Must read it was a fun read!

I like that it was set in Orlando, a hop, skip & a jump from me in Melbourne. I wonder if the author is a Floridian; she sure got the weather right. :)

Everyone wishes their lives were better. But Logan (I love girls with boys' names) gets her wish when she encounters a genie who she winds up falling for. I wish Em' s character had been plumped up a little. All I really know about her is that Logan is jealous of her brains & they are best friends. Hopefully that gets covered in another story.

I would gladly read more by Shel Delisle. Her story flowed well, the writing was good, easy, believable; not stiff or stilted at all. A cute, enjoyable read.
