The Wish List by Gabi Stevens

The Wish List (Time of Transition, #1)The Wish List by Gabi Stevens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW! What a great book!!!

I recieved a copy of this book from my new book friend over at lovlivlifereviews - she is awesome and I am learning so much from her about blogging - she has a huge list of books - and I'm slowly following her around :)

Ok The Wish List

LOVE this book!

It is so different then anything I have ever read! It was hard picturing Kristin and Tennyson as an adult though - being the whole fariy godmother and wizzard thing - I kept trying to picture them as adults and the best I could get was 20ish :)
The sexual tention was too intense to be a teen book - but 27 is too close to my age and I couldn't picture myself going through these kinds of changes - Maybe that's why it was so cool :)

This book was way cool! There was so much going on with Kristin - she had a really hard time adjusting so quickly to her new lifestyle.

In the beigning when the Aunts were hurring off for their cruise and trying to explain in a rushed explaination without giving anything away - I was totally with her when she didn't understand anything :)

But once Tennyson showed up - wow! I could see it all placing together. But then he turned out to be a "troll" and their personalities seemed to really clash - Then comes Lucus - wow! I so wanted her to get together with him :)

but the more that happened - the more I could see her with Tennyson instead.

I think the camping trip was a little short - I wish we could have gotten a "tent scene" like in Eclipse - have them talking  and joking around - not too stressed about everything - but nothing too serious either - I really liked how that took place. They seemed to have gotten to know eachother on a whole new level while camping :)

I really liked the way the book was written - Gabi Stevens did a good job showing the different POV's. We were able to get inside both their heads - and even the Aunt's heads a little while still going through all the motions of what was going on. Nothing was disrupted by the different POV's and nothing was missed.

The magic was Awesome! I can just picture all the little crowns over the heads of children for their wishes - I wish Kristin had gotten to spend a little more time on granting wishes - she did an awesome job though. The first time in the resturant with the little baby being too warm was just too cute! And what better way to live a life but to grant the wishes of those unable to talk about it. Makes me really wish there were Fairy Godmother's out there in the world - I know my kids could really use one :)

Enter Zach and Jake - Oh wow! I can TOTALLY hear him talking - Whenever I think of a surfer guy - I'm always thinking the turtle from Finding Nemo :) And his "DUDDDEEEE" was right on there :) Then his little boy Jake (Spud) I am in love with that 5 year old :)They are on their way to a H.E.A. with his new Sprite :) I hope everything works out for them in the next book :)

Speaking of the next book - I can see a LOT of different directions it can go - there was a LOT left unresolved in this first book - a really BIG Cliffhanger at the end :( I have good hopes for this next book though - and I'm anxious to find out how it goes :)
