Book review: I Dream of Johnny by Juliet Madison
Be careful what you wish for…
… and be extra careful when you type
The first time I heard of Juliet Madison was when she published her novel, Fast Forward in February this year. Every now and then a comment from some of my Goodreads friends would pop up in my feed saying how much he/she enjoyed it. Naturally, I was over the moon when I got approved by NetGalley, because I was so eager to see why all of my friends LOVE Ms. Madison’s writing.
And yeeeessssss, now I understand why they love her. Ms Madison is a brilliant author and I can seriously see her rocking the chick lit charts.
What I loved the most about I dream of Johnny was the original and well-crafted story. Mandy receives a high-tech magic lamp one day…and puffff, her life is changed forever. She’s given the choice to make three wishes, so naturally she wishes for the things any girl would love to have –
a house which never needs to be cleaned,
unlimited funds on her account
and A GREEK GOD!
You go girl, I would make exactly the same wishes! But, you see, she makes a tiny mistake leaving “R” from the word ‘Greek’ and Voilà, she’s given A GEEK GOD. LOL
Of course she wants to cancel that wish, but until that happens she’s stuck with the geek god that literally adores her.
This is really a short read but had me laughing so hard on few occasions. I absolutely LOVED Mandy and the way she’s handling the new situation. She’s nice, friendly, and cares for other people’s feelings. I loved how things turned out for her, and the ending sure took me by surprise.
To sum it up, this really is a cute story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think it’s about time I read Fast Forward, now I’m pretty sure I will like it.
My rating: 4/5
