Wizards, Fairies, Wands, OH MY
When Kristin Montgomery discovers her three aunts are fairy godmothers and she's next in line for the job, her uncomplicated life disappears like magic. No, not like magic; it is magic. Kristin not only has to deal with burgeoning magical powers, but also a reluctant arbiter, a selfish sprite, and a suave French sorcerer. It’s bad enough there are no books or classes she can take to learn magic, but someone is out to take over the Arcani world. Kristin has to trust her heart and her instincts to keep herself and the ones she loves out of danger.
The Wish List is such a cute romance story. But don't get me wrong. This is not just a romance, its just part romance. It is a story of the struggles a young girls must go through to become a fairy godmother. Its full of Wizards, Sorcerers, Sprites,and of course Fairy Godmothers.
I have to admit when i first started this i was not a fan of Tennysons. He was a jerk to Kristen! She was thrown into a world, that as far as she knew was all make believe and for children. He acted like he was too good to help her, and had more inportnant things to do than help her.A Rare One.....Who knew nothing of the magical world that lay before her.But as i got farther into the story you get to know the Real Tennyson, and he is such a doll! The love that starts to build between Tennyson and Kristen is a true love.
You also get to meet a few other characters in the story. The Aunts Lily, Rose, and Hyacinth. and Friends Zack and Callie. The Aunts are freakin hilarious! My favorite is Hyacinth. Then there is Zack and Callie. I loved these 2 characters. Zack is such a laid back kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back, even if it was the only thing he had. Callie is a no nonsense, speak her mind Sprite. I do hope we get to see more of Zack and Callie in the next 2 books!
Once i started reading The Wish List I couldn't put it down. Such a wonderful story full of Magic. I can't wait to see more into the world with the next 2 fairy godmothers!
