I wanted to fall head over heels for Wish for Me and I was in the beginning, sort of. But I don't know, it just wasn't what I expected and I could easily put it down. The opening scene was awesome and hilarious but the more I got to know Glory, I don't know, she just rubbed me the wrong way sometimes with her actions. Glory is real and I love it, but sometimes she was just too much for me and it's probably cause we're so different. She's confidant and out spoken, she's very forward and these are all great qualities but why is it necessary to say "f**king" in like every single sentence you say? I'm not a prude but I'm not one that needs to cuss in everything I say but I also know people who are like that too, my husband is one of them haha. So, for me I'm torn towards Glory. She's real but I just couldn't connect to her.
And then there was this one chapter where Glory thought it be cool to bring Irving to her classes, like why? I understand the first time she wanted to hang out with him, to ask him questions and what not. I mean, he's a freaking GENIE, I'd do the same thing. But why bring him to school the next day, especially if you aren't going to make a wish. I don't know, I think the author gave it a reason in the book but for me it's like, why? Especially, if you guys are only to argue. I know it sort of helped the plot move forward but yeah, still.
The romance, sigh. If you love when the love interests are constantly arguing with one other then you'll love this one. Don't get me wrong, I love it and it can sweep you off your feet sometimes too. But then there's also times where it can get tiring from reading a book after another where it's like that. So, I rolled my eyes and of course by the end of it, they're in love. I know this is a common plot in a lot of the romance books, especially paranormal/fantasy ones but it's nice to get a change once in a while. I don't know, maybe I was hoping for something a little bit more original. Especially when the genie plot feels so original!
Then there's a steampunk element to Wish for Me. I wasn't head over heels for this either. I think it's because I was expecting the whole thing to be wrapped up in a steampunk world but in reality Glory lives in our time and it's the genie world that's steampunk. I enjoyed it but I was wishing for more though. Oh, and one last thing before my final thoughts. "Three wishes. Two lovers. One destiny." I'm guessing this is foreshadowing to the next two books in the series because there was only one lover in Wish for Me, another expectation I had.
Overall, I don't know, I'm torn. I had high expectations about Wish for Me and sadly they weren't delivered. But that ending though, it makes me crave for the next one! Though that was like the only twist I didn't see coming. I had a feeling we knew who the hunters were, saw it a mile away. I like Wish for Me but it just didn't knock me off my feet, it was kind of so-so for me.
I liked the beginning of this book and can easily understand why it was recommended to me. Snarky heroine, sexy aloof Djinn with a twinkle in his eyes , amethyst eyes no less! There's a lot more to Irving then meets the eye , he has quite a past and is an inventor to boot so if you enjoy a touch of steampunk alongside magic than this might just be the book for you. What Glory discovers about him was almost exactly what I suspected . Glory hmm what do I say about her? I think her personality will divide readers as I'm pretty sure not everyone will like her. Yes she can be funny and clearly suffers from verbal diarrhoea but she can also appear obnoxious at times . I really enjoyed some of the authors unusual choices to describe things but alas wasn't sure about the big reveal. I'm like eighty six percent in ( according to my kindle) and the author had my eyes virtually popping out of my head! What? No? Really? Light, sexy and fun with a lovely cover and an ending that was totally surprising .
