I think my biggest problem was that When Good Wishes Go Bad TELLS you the story, rather than immersing the reader into the story, so I always felt like I was reading a diary rather than going through these experiences with the characters. The big events took place off the page. This is another entertaining book by Mindy Klasky. When we left Kira, in How Not to Make a Wish, she was on her way to NY with the man of her dreams and a lamp she needed to pass on to another wisher. Enter Becca, a young woman with a future.

Rebecca Morris is suffering from an excess of magic!Things that have disappeared: her boyfriend; her life savings; three-and-a-half million dollars from the theater company that pays both their salaries. (Coincidence? Um, no.) Also, the groundbreaking play she's been slaving over has vanished in a puff of copyright-colored smoke.Other, weirder things that have appeared: a magic lamp complete with genie wishes. A fully furnished (and paid-for) Manhattan condo and fabulous designer wardrobe. (The last two courtesy of the first one, obvs.)So Becca's putting that last wish on hold. What with discovering a mesmerizing new play, getting it onstage and falling hard for the adorably awkward guy who wrote it, Becca is swamped. And that's without factoring in the guerrilla gardener, popcorn magnate and the gender-bending genie with an agenda of his/her own.Now Becca's hoping that her good wishes don't go oh, so wrong….


Fun summer read. Very good.

This was such a cute book and helps put importance of life's desires into perspective. Definitely recommend this series. It was an enjoyable read.
I read the first book in this series about a genie named Teel and I loved it. The theater atmosphere was so real, you felt like you were actually there. And this book is even better! It can be read as a stand-alone, so don't worry if you didn't read the first one (although you'll want to, I promise you). Klasky's writing is clever, funny, and full of heart. Her characters are real and original and the genie is, well, a genie. What's not to like?!
This is another in Klasky's series of delightful books combining magic/fantasy and chick-lit. Now dealing with a genii and a backstage background (first was stagemanager, now a dramaturg) she not only entertains but enlightens about "life behind the wicked stage." Where and how she comes up with such amusing plot points as Guerilla Gardeners and ghastly flavored soft drinks never ceases to amaze me. It's good fun, nice romance with complications, and a worthy addition to her growing list of highly enjoyable novels!
Be honest, if you came across your own personal genie who granted you wishes, would you honestly know what you would wish for? I don't think it would be as easy as you think. I would probably ponder my choices for a long time to make sure that I would get the most out of each each. If I had a genie like Teel, they would probably be very annoyed with me for taking such a long time to make a decision. I don't normally read paranormal books and other than Harry Potter, I usually don't even really like books about magic. But Mindy Klasky writes about those subjects with a chick lit twist so being a chick lit fan, I fell in love with her writing. This series have been fun to read because you can help but wish you were in the same situation as the main characters.

Becca works at a theater as the person who reviews all the scripts that have potential to be put in production. She's just found out that her boyfriend has embezzled the theater of millions of dollars and has run abroad with all the money. Plus the show she had just commissioned now has to be put on the back burner. Just when she's hit her lowest point, a miracle in the form of a gender bending genie comes into her life with the power of granting four wishes. I don't want to spoil the story but there were lots of surprises that I didn't see coming that were a lot of fun. There's great humor in the story as well, I found myself giggling while reading several times.

Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Kira, the main character from the first book, makes some appearances but her story is not continued. Reading the first book might help you to understand Teel a bit more and his/her desire to want to get into the garden. I will admit that I liked Kira's story more so than Becca's. There were times when Becca seemed to be a bit selfish. In fact almost all her wishes were solely just for herself. I can understand the first wish being just for yourself but she didn't seem to want help out others even though she had the opportunity.

Overall, this was a really fun read. I really enjoyed learning about what goes on in the background scenes of running a theater. There were so many things that I didn't know before that this book taught me and it gave me a whole new respect for those who have that career. I think everyone would like to share the scenario of having a genie like Becca. It's a wish that everyone wants. This is a light read, great for a day at the beach. I'll be looking forward to the third book in the series to see if Teel finally gets to go to the garden.
This was a fun and lighthearted read about a woman who finds herself suddenly broke and homeless after her boyfriend of 3 years disappears with her entire life savings, as well as 3 million dollars from the production company that they both work(ed) for. That being said, a friendly co-worker lends our protagonist a box of clothes, as well as a brass lamp, complete with a gender-bending, wish-fulfilling genie. What I didn't realize before reading this book is that the friendly co-worker's adventures with the magical genie were apparently documented in the first book in this series. However, this book stands alone just fine and I had absolutely no trouble keeping up with what was going on. Even though the two books are evidently written as a continuation of the story, one needn't necessarily read them in order. That's what I was told, anyway, and I believe it since I didn't even realize this was a continuation until I was told so. That being said......

I found this book to be the perfect brain candy. It was an effortless read, perfect for a lazy summer day. The characters were, in my opinion, very likable and well rounded. Even the Popcorn King was irritatingly well-written. The plot was well executed and the author left no loose ends when the story was over. Toss in a teaspoon of humor and a dash of romance, and you have a perfect recipe for a great book. I noticed that some reviewers didn't like this book because the plot was "unbelievable", but how believable is a genie in a lamp supposed to be? This book has very little semblance to anything believable, but that's what makes it so much fun. This book is a nice little escape from reality, and it was an escape that I truly enjoyed making.

The back of the book states that Mindy Klasky's next book (in this series) will be published in October 2010 and I look forward to reading about another 4 wishes being granted to another unsuspecting soul.
