My rating: 3 of 5 stars
By Alexandra Bullen the novel Wishful Thinking is about main character Hazel. Put up for adoption as a baby and with the only constant in her life being change, it’s no wonder Hazel wishes for things to have been different. On her 18th birthday, she finally gets her chance, three wishes that are all hers for better or worse.
I gave this book a three star rating for a few reasons. It was a well written book I really like how the plot line evolved; with turns both expected and unexpected. The characters were good, they were given their personalities and they stuck with them but their only purpose seemed to be to move the plot. they were developed only as much as they needed to be. I feel that my experience with this book can be summarized with one word, it was okay. I read it from cover to cover in one day because if I had put it down I don’t think that I’d have picked it up again. I felt no connection and no real need to know the ending. It was not bad but I was not impressed either.
P.S: I never knew that this book was a part of a series, much less that it’s the second book in that series. Maybe that affected my opinion, maybe there was something in the first book that would have made this one great. I am not motivated enough to find out unless at least two, maybe three, people tell me that I really should give it a chance because they loved it. Anyone who read the first one, tell me what you thought of it!
What do you guys think? Any arguments?Did I miss something that would make me feel different about it?
