    The story itself was only okay. Even for a story aimed at thirteen year olds, it was a little predictable, though it wasn't bad. Just nothing very original. (I would really like to see some fairy fiction that doesn't feature (view spoiler)[a lost fairy princess, (hide spoiler)] but I ...

    This book is such a quick and cute read! Although it is obviously geared toward younger readers, fantasy lovers of all ages will love the illustrations and messages presented in Wish! I flew through it in just a few short hours because half of the book is full-page illustrations of the...

    3.5 Stars Wish: Faerieground is the first book on a series of four about Soli and Lucy. I enjoyed it. Lucy is light, while Soli is dark. They are thirteen, best friends and complete opposites. They have played in the woods all their lives; it?s their secret shortcut, even thoug...

    Wishes really do come true. This story is a beautiful example of a fun and lighthearted young adult book. Many of the YA book today are dark romances and have the well known bad boy, but this one is different and it was one of the things I liked most. There was whimsy, danger, and...

    First off I would like to say that yes this is younger than YA. But I like to do younger reviews here and there. I would like to say that the art in this book is beautiful and I have to say the best part of the book. It is was beautiful and creative.it was a very cool mix of different...

    At first the cadence of the language seemed off, but the more I read the smoother it got. I think it just took me awhile to realize that this book is not intended for teens, but more for tweens and advanced children. It will make a great reluctant reader book for grades 4 and 5. The st...

    Lucy and Soli are best friends?opposite as day and night. One boy between them leads to jealously and betrayal. One careless wish makes a girl captive of the faerie kingdom deep in Willow Forest. The faeries are not as imagined. They are scarier and meaner. The terrifying faerie quee...

    The illustrations in Wish are beautiful and will captivate the imagination of a young reader. (Or an old one like me.;) The flow of the book is a little disjointed due to it being told in alternating points of view between the two main characters, Lucy and Soli. It did not completely d...

    Friendships aren't always smooth and fun and exciting, as we all know. They take understanding, dedication, and time, and even then, sometimes they fail. In Wish, a friendship is thoroughly tested through magic, separation and hurt feelings. Soli and Lucy have been best friends for yea...

    Once upon a time two girls grew up together and were best friends. Lucy was the light one; popular, beautiful, always wanting to be around other people. Soli was the dark one; shy, also beautiful, but content to stay in the shadows. They did everything together and were as close as clo...

    First, the illustrations are gorgeous. They're captivating and beautiful. I think I spent more time looking at the illustrations than the text. They're definitely the best part of the book. I wish the same could be said of the characterization and plot of Wish. However, the book rea...

    I have never read another story quite like this one. The book itself looks very long, but it isn't. It is precisely as long as it needs to be. The chapters of this book are rather short, the longest being maybe four or five pages. And, as short as the chapters are, the writing is not y...

    I'd like to thank Netgalley for the opportunity to read this story. "That's just who we are. Two sides of the same coin. Two halves of the same whole." This is the first boook in the Faerieground series. This book is a quick and easy read with really gorgeous artworks. It's a...

    I work at a bookstore and this happened to be in our white box (the ARC box) and I thought Hey! Faeries, I like that topic a lot, lets try it. Despite its young-adultness it was actually pretty good. It didn't take me long to read it either because it is written in a short story format...

    this was a short read, but I found it to be an enjoying read. I currently placed the second book on hold at the library, so I will pick it up later this week. It is a good story of an outcast who feels betrayed by her friends and it seems like her dark emotions took over. Well, let's s...

    2.5 stars, maybe 3 based on the categorization: hi/low Read this book because I might introduce it to some of my struggling readers who yearn for chapter books but aren't necessarily ready for them. This particular book isn't bad. The short, simple sentences are easy to read and com...
