The Fire Wish is a beautifully written, fast paced book about the Jinn stemming from the Middle Eastern mythology. I loved the vivid descriptions of the scenery and was transported to this area that I’ve not often read about. Lough’s story focuses on two very different girls who found themselves connected in unexpected ways.
There have been a few retellings recently featuring Peter Pan so when I saw Alias Hook, which is about Captain Hook, I was sold. I was very excited to be included in the blog tour as well as getting a chance to read this book prior to its release. Below you will find my review and information on the book.
A copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Growing up on Forge’s streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that’s not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs.

The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common—they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together. Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out. But somehow even when nothing is going on, something is happening between them, and everyone can see it. Their creative writing teacher pushes them together. The baristas at Starbucks watch their relationship like a TV show. Their bus driver tells his wife about them. The waitress at the diner automatically seats them together. Even the squirrel who lives on the college green believes in their relationship.
This last week (July 14th) marked my eight year wedding anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been that long. My husband and I are so bad at remembering our anniversary date…we have both forgotten almost every year. We hadn’t remembered this year until I got an email saying something about Bastille day and that made me think…oh yeah! That’s my anniversary. haha. Thankfully, we are both horrible at remembering so it’s never a big deal that we’ve forgotten.
