Guess what today is? The release date for YOU WISH!!!! We’re dedicating the day to our very own Mandy Hubbard and her new novel, YOU WISH (did we mention it just came out today?)!
[Description from Goodreads]
What if all your wishes really came true?
Kayla McHenry’s sweet sixteen sucks! Her dad left,
her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy
Kayla’s secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles,
Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually
came true. Because they never freakin’ do.
Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink
My Little Pony outside her window. Then a year’s
supply of gumballs arrives. A boy named Ken with
a disturbing resemblance to the doll of the same
name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kayla’s wishes-past
appear, they take her on a wild ride . . . but they
MUST STOP. Because when she was fifteen? She
wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her. And Ben is
her best friend’s boyfriend.
* CONGRATS, MANDY! *
To celebrate, we’re doing a few things.
2. Biljana has posted an interview with Mandy on her blog!
3. We thought we’d share 1 RIDICULOUS thing we would wish for.
4. And while we’re talking about wishes, we’ll also add what our MS/WIP protagonists would wish for!
I’d wish for a unicorn. Just cause!
Danae would wish for a tanning bed – if they existed in her world. Okay, even if they did, she wouldn’t…. but living in those caves leaves one with rather pasty skin, and a serious lack of vitamin D!
I’d wish for super-fast metabolism, so I can eat as much junk food as I want and never have to worry about gaining weight. And a lifetime supply of Cheetos and cookie dough.
Celaena would wish for a Beauty and the Beast-sized library. And to go on a massive shopping spree. Oh, and freedom. 😛
I would wish for control of time, the kind where if it stops or you take a trip back your body doesn’t age.
Ingrid would wish for instant gratification. Not much patience, that one.
I would wish for a remote control that could let me pause life, but get to walk around in it. As my first order of business as Almighty Life remote Holder I would probably break into the Pentagon and find the files on aliens and Bigfoot.
The Poetess would wish for freedom, obviously. As a secondary concern i think she would probably wish to erase all the misery that Shae endured.
I would wish for a big fat Undo button. Because we all need one of those sometimes…. 😀
Eva would wish for acceptance. And maybe a little privacy…
I would wish for Chris Hemsworth.
Priscilla seriously wishes for a shark tank, and if there were friggin’ lasers in her world, she’d want them on the sharks’ heads, because she believes in standards.
So, what ridiculous/silly thing would YOU wish for?
What would your protagonist wish for?
