Contest- Win As You Wish & Signed Bookplate!


Win an ARC of As You Wish and Signed Bookplate from Jackson Pearce!
As You Wish by Jackson Pearce

Ever since Viola's boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.

Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can't deny that he's falling for Viola. But it's only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she's in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.

I'm excited to be able to offer one lucky winner an ARC of Jackson's novel "As You Wish" and a signed bookplate from the author.

To enter to win, leave a comment telling us what you would ask for if a genie
offered to grant you three wishes!

If a genie offered me three wishes, and I wasn't in love with him, and he wouldn't have to go back to his world if I made the three wishes(unless he wanted to), I'd make some pretty decent requests.

1. End to world hunger. Plenty of food for everyone. The only rule is that you can't waste it. Chances are, if we are all well fed, we wouldn't have to fight over food or starve to death. Plus, most people are happier after the have a good meal.

2. Get rid of most deadly and debilitating diseases like cancer, AIDS, and Multiple Sclerosis. I know they are to remind us that we are human, however, I think that there is enough suffering and adversity. But so we'll truly appreciate this life, you can still get sick.

3. The eternal happiness of me, my family, and those I love. You can't put a price on happiness. Through it great things can happen.

Thanks for the contest!

Three wishes (these are going to be ridiculous and probably selfish):
1. unlimited funds (so I could buy ridiculous amounts of books and also give to charities... and buy shoes... and pay for college)
2. my own personal library with one of those sliding ladders like on Beauty and the Beast
3. perfect weather... basically autumn for most of the year with a week's worth of the other seasons

2. To be great at my job and love it
3. For all of my family to find their dream jobs and be happy while working their and able to keep it as long as they like.
