    Absolutely amazing!!!! :D It's a book I've read over and over again and yet I still love it. Highly recommended if you want some light, funny, feel-good reading :D

    A onda kao treću njenu knjigu pročitala ovu... I zaključila da njeno pisanje sazrelo, da je knjiga dobro i da upravo s ovim naslovom treba da počne s objavljivanjem u Srbiji... I onda sam se bacila na sve svoje uredničko-ubeđivačke moći da je Laguna objavi... I posle nekoliko dana natezanja, nisam uspela da ubedim gazdu... I onda ju je godinu dana kasnije objavio uspešno Alnari... :)

    This book is amazing! The story is really fairytale like and yet so realistic, that is just insane. I love how the story unfolds and they way Heather wishes for things we all wish for sometimes. Oh and I might have a little crush on Gabe, he sounds like the perfect boyfriend

    I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT THIS HAPPENED.

    .I'M IN HEAVEN.

    So,this is my second Alexandra Potter book and I love it!Like the last one I read,this one is a chick-lit with a touch of fantasy.Great characters who definitely develop a lot by the end of the book.The ending is great,too.I love the fact that Heather turns down her job at Sunday Herald when she thinks that she didn't get it because of her talent.I personally love to know that my hard work paid off and is appreciated and that I got something and acomplished something thanks to my hard work and talent,not because someone else just gave it to me,so I understand Heather completely.Great read and I would recommend it to every chick-lit lover.

    Things I really liked:

    Every character in this book.They are all very interesting and loveable.(even James is ok.)I really liked Heather's father Lionel-he's such a funny guy.And Gabe:

    Favourite quotes:

    ''Consider the implications. We think we know what we want, but we can never really know until we've got it. And sometimes when we have, we discover we never really wanted it in the first place -

    .''

    .’ Absorbing the words I’m struck by its profundity.

    . Someone who probably didn’t even own a pair of shoes. Let alone a pair of overpriced sandals that ended up in the bin. Suddenly I feel ashamed. ‘

    ’ I ask, reverentially.Having drunk its fill the bird darts away and my dad turns back to me.

    ,’ he confesses, and linking his arm through mine we begin walking slowly to the house.'

    Veoma dobar chick-lit roman koji daje odgovor na pitanje "Da li nas zaista usrećuje kada dobijemo sve što želimo?" :)

    But when wishes start coming true, what do you wish for? You can have anything, but are those things good for you? You never know till you actually try it out. And then probably along the way you find out it's not all that. An idealistic wish is just that - maybe when it translates to reality it's not really something you'd want.

    But when wishes start coming true, what do you wish for? You can have anything, but are those things good for you? You never know till you actually try it out. And then probably along the way you find out it's not all that. An idealistic wish is just that - maybe when it translates to reality it's not really something you'd want.

    Heather is our leading lady. Heather, lucky Heather. Heather gets lucky, gets happy, and comes to terms with the reality of wishes coming true.

    But when things start to come true in ways that are different from what she expected them to be, that's when it hits her.

    A couple of incidents happen that show her what she really needs, what truly makes her happy.

    This book is very well written, and I enjoyed reading it. I read chick lit quite quickly, and a well written one draws you in beautifully. This definitely did.

    Some of it, you may say, is unrealistic. But the basic premise is magic, charms and a sprig of lucky heather. Don't try and debate the premise.

    A lovely book, it'll put you in a good mood and make you count your blessings.

    And being blissfully aware of our blessings and happy little moments, well that's something we should all wish for.

    Ok, I give up. It’s official, I don’t like Alexandra Potter as an author. She has great ideas as plots go, but then the delivery is awful. This book was no different.

    It was slow paced; it took a while for me to get into it, and loads of will power not to quit it altogether. I had to skip-read a bit towards the end, when a useless and page-wasting family tragedy takes place, in order to finish the book.

    The general feeling I got from this book was meh.

    There are also three general line of writing that I’ve read too many times and that are really starting to annoy me:

    1. Heroin sees guy with a gorgeous girl, she misunderstand her for his girlfriend, and it turns out she actually is the sister.

    2. The oh-too-perfect-man – Please stop the madness.

    3. Stand-up comedy, why?

    I think I’ll start some discussions about these three point because it’s becoming annoying to have to read them over and over again, I want to see if I’m the only one.

    Supposing I won't like this at all, judging by the cheesy title, I still read it out of politeness because I got it as a present. As I read a couple of pages, I couldn't believe that someone actually sees this as literature. It seems as someone wrote this book just to make a joke.

    As someone who passed the age of twelve, I couldn't see how this could be taken seriously by anyone pass that age, but sadly I've seen grown woman reading Alexandra Potter. It may seem as cruel but I find this writer aw

    As someone who passed the age of twelve, I couldn't see how this could be taken seriously by anyone pass that age, but sadly I've seen grown woman reading Alexandra Potter. It may seem as cruel but I find this writer awful as well as this book. ( I read another book of hers just to make sure).

    Anyway, the story is a very bad blend of reality and fantasy concerning a young woman with many desires. She buys a magical good luck charm from an old woman and suddenly all her wishes come true. After some time she finds out that all those things realized do not please her, but bother her.

    Not even having to think about the moral of the book, you see that it want to spread the message to think carefully before you wish for something because it may not be what you want.

    Nothing wrong with the moral, but I'm very displeased it's displayed in such a shallow way. This book, with all it's exaggerations, very bad humor and above all, shallowness enters my list of worst books ever.

    This was the first romantic comedy I wrote that had that touch of magic. It was so much fun to write. Thinking of all the tiny little things I wish for every single day... it's quite incredible... and it really did make me realise that I needed to be careful what I wish for!
