This looks very thought provoking. I'm curious to see how the story ends. It's a really great blurb. Would definitely love to read this one.

I would love to read this book for several reasons. First, it would count toward my participation in The Story Siren's Debut Author Challenge. Second, it sounds fantastic--A book that both my students and I would love. Finally, who doesn't like to wonder what would truly happen if their wishes started to come true?

Thanks for the giveaway!

After reading your interview and review I really want to read this book. I can't imagine what it would be like to experience what Hazel is going through, I would love to read more about what happens.

Thank you for the giveaway.

I cannot wait to read this book! I love the premise and think I'd really enjoy it. I'd write a review if I won and try give it away (pay it forward?) to one of my blog readers.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win! :)

Oh, and by the way, I love your background: it reminds me of Marla Singer from Fight Club, for some reason, but in the best of ways!

I've always been intriqued by stories where the main character is able to make wishes that could/would change their lives. I find it interesting to read about what they'd choose and how it would affect their life. It also doesn't hurt that the cover is so nice. Thanks for the great giveaway. ^_^

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
