    I Wish I Weren’t a Djinni

    I Wish I Weren’t a Djinni is your run of the mill genie story. A young man finds a lamp, he gets three wishes, and the djinni wishes to be free. It’s a pretty standard genie story that is very predictable but still manages to be sweet. There is a little humor as the genie tries to figure out 21st century life. After a while, though, it got a little tiring. “What happens to you once I make my third wish?” As a positive, for a young adult story with mild hints of romance, there was no instalove and I found that to be refreshing.

    Storm Born

    Back in the day when I had a Nook Color, a friend of mine and I used to exchange books pretty often. I loved most of the books she loaned me, and so when I saw Storm Born pop up on my device I instantly accepted the loan without even thinking. After reading a chapter or two I thought to myself, “What the hell am I reading?” and finally looked up the synopsis to the book. I furrowed my brow wondering what I had gotten myself into. A kitsune and a bondage fairy? This is the kind of stuff that I would have been into over a decade ago. Not…
