Waiting On Wednesday #35: The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar



"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 
This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting on... 

by Lindsay Ribar
Release date: March 21st, 2013

SUMMARY

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 waiting on THE ART OF WISHING... 

GENIES?!?!

Seriously, you had me at genies!!!
It's definitely different than all the other YA books out there right now - 
I am SO looking forward to this one :)

SO, what are you waiting on???
