Saving Wishes

Saving Wishes by GJ Walker-Smith Book Summary

*** Au & NZ iBooks Best of 2013 Breakout Book Of The Year ***
For Charli Blake, being seventeen is a tough gig.
She's been branded a troublemaker, her reputation is in tatters and she's stuck in Pipers Cove, a speck of a town on the coast of Tasmania.
Thankfully, it's temporary. Her lifelong dream of travelling the world is just months away from becoming reality. All she has to do is ride out the last few months of high school, which is easier said than done thanks to a trio of mean girls known as The Beautifuls.
When Adam Décarie arrives in town, all the way from New York, life takes an unexpected turn. His arrival sets off a chain of events that alters her life forever, convincing her of one thing. Fate brought him to her.
Saving Wishes is the story of a girl who doesn't quite fit the life she's living, and the boy who helps her realise why.

- LOVED IT❤️❤️❤️5 star

- Best I've read in a long time5 star

Seriously. I loved this book. Passionately. I couldn't put it down.

- 5 Enchantig Stars!!5 star

This was the first story I read that got me into reading as an adult and Saving Wishes by GJ Walker-Smith is still one of my favorite books. I often go back and re-read it after an ugly cry or a very suspenseful book. It's sweet and charming and it has quite a colorful heroine. Charli Blake is a handful! I loved this Aussie girl from the very first sentence: "Alex, my brother, sometimes calls me wicked. Sometimes I am." I just knew right away this girl was going to be fun to read about. Always rebellious, quick witted and a little devious, Charli also has this sweet innocent part of her that lives in LaLa Land and believes in fate and miracles. Adam Décarie is your good looking All American New Yorker in law school. Raised by strict parents, everything about his life is planned in precise detail. So it's completely out of character when he takes off to visit his cousin in Australia. When Charli meets Adam the connection is instant. Charli being the indecisive girl she is, doesn't give in right away, and I loved the banter between the two of them. Their exchanges are sweet and funny but the way Charli opens this man's eyes to the magic of LaLa Land is enchanting. There's nothing logical about how they met and fell in love. They're from two different ends of the world, with completely different upbringings, but their love knows no bounds. But is it enough? Adam is only visiting. This story was complete perfection to me. I fell in love with ALL of the characters and was really rooting for a happily ever after. Whether or not they get it is for you to find out!!

- At a crossroad3 star

Haven't quite finished the book. Not sure if I want to. I'm not connected to the characters one reason being there isn't a detailed description of them to make them relatable. She ddnt give a clear depiction of their looks, characteristics or motives. It's affecting the way I respond to the situations that each character is going through. I read books so that I could immerse myself in a fairytale but I would Never want to be any character in this book. Confusion set highest when they discribed charli as someone who left everything to chance but a later chapter her friend said she was a control freak. Seriously make a decision and stick to it. And give the characters more depth. we need history's and a better explanation of the plot

- I Got Addicted to it5 star

It’s AMAZING i loved it. I was addicted to it and I fell in love with the book and the characters especially Adam

- Saving Wishes5 star

Loved this book and the entire seriously. Brilliantly written with heart wrenching moments followed by lots of laughs!

- Loved it5 star

I loved it! I hope you can make a movie off of it.

- Entire-series-in-a-weekend-good5 star

Hooked. I read a lot of books, (2-3 a week), and a lot of them don't stick with me for long, but this one has stuck with me for over a year. It's truly refreshing to read a love story where they are so sure of their love for each other, and the respect they deserve for themselves, and the fall victims to circumstances rather than jealousy and lies.. Oh and I notice a lot of complaints about spelling, but you have to realize the author is Australian, they spell some things differently, no need to call the book poorly edited, because you're poorly cultured

- Saving Wishes5 star

Awesome book couldn't stop reading it , will read more of her books.

- ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️5 star

BEST.BOOK.EVER!!! Seriously, you get hooked right away. I could not stop reading. The whole series is great!! It's worth every penny to read this series. So sad when I finished the books tho haha I wish there was more! Highly highly HIGHLY recommend this book (:

I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the story line. I absolutely recommend reading the entire series. Enjoy!

- Saving wishes5 star

This book was amazing to read I could picture the images in the book so good I can't wait to read the other books in the series GJ Walker-Smith is s fantastic writer keep doing what your doing.

- Fine read4 star

It was alright. I got really into the book but the ending isn't satisfying

- Best series EVER!!5 star

Cannot say enough wonderful things about this series!! Love all of the characters. Have read all of GJ's books. Can't wait for Shiloh to come out.

- Goodness4 star

I could not stop reading this book. I read it at work, and during lectures at school. I never pay for books but I'm about to pay for the rest of this journey. I NEED IT. Can't stop reading!

- Enjoyed it5 star

I truly enjoyed the journey of this story and can't wait to find what happens to Charli in the next book. One problem was on a number of pages in some chapters sentences were cut off so some parts were missed.

- Saving Wishes5 star

One of the best books I have ever read. Really enjoyed author writing (GJ Walker-Smith).

- Best Author Ever5 star

I absolutely love the style of writing Mrs. Walker-Smith uses and the story is magical. I have read all the books so far and I really hope they turn into movies! I cried so hard at moments because of the wonderful description and narration. The only bad thing is that there is not a movie yet. Saving wishes is an excellent book and I can't find enough adjectives to describe it. I'm just really glad that I read this book, and the sequels!

- Saving Wishes5 star

Loved this book. I was addicted, it was a truly great book.

- Amazing I couldn't stop reading5 star

I loved this book I really couldn't stop reading it. It was addicting and I bought the second one after reading it


Well, seven books later and I'm left sad to let these characters go. I almost stopped reading after the first book because it seemed like it was wrapping up to be like every other teen love story, but I was SOOOO wrong! Charli grows up through the books and it's so best to see. This is unique in every way and no detail is left without a meaning. Her name even has a meaning at the end of book 5. I feel like I'm losing a friend... Write more, please!

- Yass5 star

I would give it 538 stars if I could!!!!!! My hands down favorite book!!! So phenomenal!!😃😃😘

- Not the normal Happily-Ever-After4 star

Most romantic novels have a standard plot in which the characters meet, have some barrier to overcome and then get married etc. This delightful series focuses more on what happens with a couple having to figure out how to live a life together beyond the happy send-off. Really enjoyed it, well done.

- Best short read ever.5 star

At first I figured it was going to some cliche love story and it took me by surprise! This book had so many plot twists I could hardly keep up, everytime it would simmer down the next page would pick it back up. It was a beautifuly told story , my only complaint was the ending. The ending really wasn’t something I expected or wanted, but that being said it did make me want to read the second book just to see if it turned out better. Great read! I would recommend it to anyone.

- Saving wishes5 star

- Great book5 star

Great book

- Was this book even edited?!2 star

SO MANY GRAMMATICAL ERRORS!! I was shocked! They are extremely distracting which was very disappointing because I did enjoy the storyline. Surprised that of all the great reviews, the subject isn't brought up more often.

- My absolute favorite book, magic.5 star

The only way to describe this series is magical. A tale of fate, enchantment, and true love, it never gets old. I bought this series in paperback just so I could read them over and over again. Love this series.

This book wasn’t groundbreaking by any means, but I fell so in love with the story that I couldn’t put it down. The characters were everything (yes, looking at you Adam & Alex) and there were twists I wasn’t expecting in the slightest. Overall, I loved this and I seriously can’t wait to finish off the series!

- You keep me coming back for more5 star

Smith, What a book. You have me coming back for more. I can't believe how it has finished, but to smooth into the series that way? Encore! Fabulous read. Might I add the fear to find out who the real Adam is? Please review if you read this! You must!

- Amazing5 star

Love this series. I really think it should be made into a movie! This is my new go to feel good book!!!

- Saving wishes5 star

Wonderful love story with great surprises. Fun to read

- So awesome!5 star

I loved this book and series! I just found it in the free book section last year and never expected such a spectacular and touching story! Usually stories of this genre aren't written so real and it just warps you into La La Land ;) So happy GJ Walker Smith made this happen :)

- The Wishes series5 star

One of my best series... Just can't stop reading it... La la land is a place to be!!! And GJ Walker-Smith is so funny on FB ☺️

- A Hidden Gem5 star

WOW. I stumbled upon this book in the free section last December because I'm a university student trying to be as frugal as possible. After having read Saving Wishes (and all the other books in the series) it's safe to say that I would pay hundreds of dollars to read these books. This series is my favourite and I'm dying to read the new book coming out in December. A quirky love story that just pleases the soul. Highly recommend - especially to lovers of la la land.

- From the get go...5 star

I found this wonderful book on a whim. It ended up being one of the best decisions I made. Saving Wishes and the rest of GJ Walker-Smiths wishes series books are absolutely beautifully written pieces of prose. They're emotional, funny, sexy and so beautiful I've read them over and over again. Adam and Charli and by far the best book couple around. I adore them and everyone should take a journey to LaLa land. It's worth it! X

- BEST BOOK EVER!!!5 star

Words can't even explain how much I love this book! It is perfect. I have never read such an amazing book in my life! Do yourself a favour and read this book! It's just so perfect!💜

- Amazing!!!5 star

Love love loved it!!! Tiny bit of a slow start but such a good read. I fell in love with the characters!!

- Loved it5 star

I want a hard cover please!

- Good read4 star

Definitely worth reading

- Saving wishes4 star

At first, I was skeptical about reading this book because I haven't read any reviews for it. I must say I was surprised and thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. So much so that I read saving wishes and second hearts (the follow up book) in two and a half days. Honestly, the only reason why I rated this book a 4 instead of a 5 is because the constant grammatical errors were distracting. Anyways, if you're looking for a good read I suggest you give it a try. It's a cute romantic story about a young girl named Charli who falls hopelessly and completely in love with a New Yorker named Adam.

- Wowza5 star

I don't usually write book reviews but this book was too good not too! I highly recommend it! Completely out did all my expectations! Started reading and couldn't stop until past 4

- AMAZING5 star

I couldn't put it down read cover to cover in 3 days. Charlie and adam make me happy. Such a great read. Looking forward to book 2!

- Love this book!!!5 star

I could not put this or the second book down. Can't wait for the third one!

- Best book ever5 star

This is the best book I have ever read and I can't Waite to complete the second and third one I think that everyone should read this book

- I fell in love5 star

There are not enough brilliant words to describe this book. It's so unbelievably written, and keeps your heart beating fast. Wow.

- Crazy beautiful love5 star

Wow! I could not put this book down. Amazing read. Charli's mind is like no other- I could live there forever!!! Do yourself a favour and read this book!

- I loved this book period.5 star

A very touching, beautifully written novel. Once I started reading I couldn't stop until I finished the whole book.

- Awesome Series!5 star

UPDATE: I can’t tell you how many times I have read this book now, and I love it just as much each time. Charli is like a kindred spirit to me. Even though she is only 17, and she does do things that any 17 year old will do, she also has maturity beyond her years. Fate steps in and Charli meets the delectable Adam who I just adore. I’m on a pilgrimage now to re read the entire series. Saving Wishes is the first book in a fabulous series by GJ Walker-Smith. This book not only has become one of my favourite series, but has opened up a new world to me. I discovered this book on iTunes for free - which it still is. I couldn't put it down and finished it very quick, but I had to have more. I then discovered that it was part of a series and quickly downloaded the next book. GJ Walker-Smith is one of a few authors that I pre order and one click without hesitation. Saving Wishes is set in a little town of Tasmania Australia. Charli is a teen finishing her last year at school and then she is out of there. That is until she meets Adam, who has come to visit his cousin. This couple has a banter you are going to love. Their romance is so sweet. Charli shows Adam around La La Land which he adores. This story will take you on highs and lows with it's twists and turns. If you are a true romantic, as I am, you are going to love this book and series. It is a special must read that I am happy to recommend.

- Outstanding!5 star

My favourite book series ever. I have read extensively but this book is one that stays with me. It isn't the most eloquent nor don't doesn't have the most amazing story line ever but it's truely unique and resonates with anyone who has a meandering soul.

One of the best series I have read in a while. At the start, the names of some characters sounded similar and it confused me a little however, I got past that and could not stop reading until all books in the series were read. Captivating! My imagination was running wild with this one! Love it!!

- BRAVO!5 star

I just stumbled across this book one day and thought hey let's download it. And then gj walker took me on an amazing journey with Adam and Charlie and everyone else! You will fall in love with them and her writing style is sooo beautiful. It's full of surprises, sweet moments and laugh out loud humour and all I can say is bravo. It's magnificent. One warning: if your going to read be prepared to read the whole thing in one go as you won't wanna stop and you won't be satisfied until you read the rest of the series!!

- Hooked!5 star

After reading this first book ive been hooked! I loved reading the growth of all of these characters. Read the series multiple times now and can not praise them enough. Ive smiled, laughed and cried with the characters. Just purely amazing!

- Adore this book5 star

So I picked this little treasure up off the freebies list. I am so glad that I did. The way that Gj Walker-Smith writes is enthralling. Charlis life is a mix of heartache and joy, adventure and stagnant moments. But we love every moment of it!!! I simply adore this book. And the rest of the series are all in my bookshelf and on preorder. Love love love. Well done Gj Walker-Smith. Life time fan here xxxxxx

- OMG!! Best book EVER!!!😁😄😜5 star

This book is now my favourite book, Charli (the main character) doesn't care what others think of her as she is rebellious and hardcore. I love how in the end it leaves room for another book and the same thing continues with the rest of yeah books. Loving the whole series so far!!

- Must read series!5 star

This book absolutely captivated me! I have now read the entire series and I'm almost literally counting down the days until noon 5 is released in December. G.J walker smith does an amazing job of sucking you in and never wanting to put these books down!

- Fantastic5 star

I loved this book and the whole series do far. Great read

- Heart Warming5 star

This book and the others in the series are well worth it. You will fall in love with the characters and loose sleep because you will just want to read the next page. Walker-Smith grows with her writing. While the first couple of chapters are bit hard to keep you engaged after a few she has a handle on it and just gets better within the series. I have now read them all and cannot wait for Dec when the next book arrives.

- Saving Wishes5 star

I loved this book! It's such a beautiful read and a great start to a series. I can't wait to read more from this author and series! Definitely 5 stars!

There is nothing about this book that I didn't like! From witty remarks to memorable quotes I just could put it down, reading it in one sitting. If you have a love for romance, fairies and a bit of magic in your life then this is the book for you:)

Loved it!!! Unique story, unique writing style, can't wait to read the next book!!!!

- Good read5 star

Great book

- Unforgettable5 star

This book was amazing and I recommend it because it displayed trust and love; two qualities needed in a relationship. The characters were also very well portrayed especially Charli's character as a troublemaker.

- Must read book!5 star

I read a lot of books but this one resonated with me on a level I rarely experience. I absolutely loved it and will now read anything GJ Walker-Smith writes. The characters are unique and sometimes a little crazy but you just want to meet them in real life. Romance, magic, often tragic fairytales are just a few of the many reasons, this is a must read book!

- Saving Wishes5 star

An engaging, easy read that really captures your attention, couldn't take my eyes of the pages :)

- Worth a read :)5 star

I loved reading this series. The characters were easy to like particularly Charli's magical and romantic views on everything. I found myself laughing out loud throughout too :)

- "LaLa Land " is the place to be !5 star

Really neat read , the querkiness of the characters made the story special .

- plesantly surprised5 star

at first, i was worried at how fast the storyline started. As i continued reading i was drawn in by each page. The characters all have their own essence that is written beautifully. Each characters strenghs and weaknessess dont take over the story making it too dramtic. It is always at a perfect balance. These are characters with real life problems and it was easy to relate to. one of the best Aussie books I've read! I love this world!

- Loved it!5 star

Great read!! Have read all 3 book in series now and there all great!

- Absolutely Magical!5 star

It's by far the best trilogy series I have read in contemporary genre ! It's full of so many gems and the love story between Charli & Adam so emotive that you are literally transported into their world .

- Captivating5 star

This book grabbed my really grabbed my attention. It was not a cliche and also not very predictable which left me wanting for more!


This book was amazing i told my friends about it and they have all started reading it, I've never had a book touch my heart like this before and its probably he first one I've read all the way through within a matter of day!! Ive been in school thinking about it every second about Charli and Adam and i have been brought through the emotions of crying my eyes our worrying, you name it which another book has had never had such a tole on me!!! I think this book i worth being published because it is remarkably amazing and there would be plenty of teenage girls and women who would love to see this story as a film, it would get an extreme amount of views!!!! To the author of this book, you are the best writer i know of whom i have read their books. The description used and the different scenarios are perfectly described with so much detail and i love it!! This book needs to be made into a film and i am looking forward to reading the other making wishes books within the next few weeks!! Please carry on i'd love to here from you about your work and ideas, Georgina Sidley-Brooks xx

Instantly addicted to this series! Read all 3.5 books in 3 days!

- Complete waste of time1 star

Cannot believe I wasted my day reading this bs. Such a predictable plot + unreasonably infuriating characters. Seriously wishing I could turn back time right about now so I wouldn't have read this crap

- Couldn't put it down!5 star

Literally every spare minute I had I would read to find out what was going to happen next... Once you finish this you'll have to read the next two.. And wait (not so patiently) for Secret North!

- BRILLIANT!5 star

This first book is amazing! I am currently reading the second book and so far I love it. There is a twist to the end of this book and you'll discover something amazing that was right in front of Charli's eyes for years!! Read this book and get hooked on the series.

- Loved it! - emmiemay5 star

I don't normally get hooked to books. I have trouble to keep on reading most of the time but this book i couldn't stop reading! I loved the little twist and everything about the book. I cannot wait to read the 2nd and 3rd! Keep up the amazing work G J Walker-Smith

- Amazing!!5 star

These books are some of the best series of books i've ever read. So funny and magical. Im gutted ive finished them. Definately look forward to reading more by this author in the future.

- Its keeps you craving5 star

This book is simply reading and very enjoyable to read, will be reading more of her books

- Perfect ending to a beautiful story5 star

After waiting months for my next fix of la la land and for storm shells to be released I couldn't wait to start reading. Nothing disappointed it was perfect from start to finish as the other 2 are. I got all the answers I wanted and think that the final instalment couldn't have been any better. Even though I found myself shouting, crying ad laughing it was exactly how it should be.Very much worth the wait. Well done G.J Walker Smith you are a very talented lady.

- Awful1 star

This book is full of grammar and spelling mistakes. The story is dull, up until a shock reveal right at the end. It ends badly and doesn't tie up any loose ends for any parts of the story. Very disappointing.

- Perfect:)5 star

Such a cute story, I couldn't put it down!

- Totally sucked me in5 star

A must read

- Amazing5 star

Finished this in 2 days, very addictive, can't wait to read the next 2!!!

- Fell in love5 star

I couldn't put it down - I fell in love with the story and with Charli

- Perfection in a book5 star

although this book was at some point predictable all books are, an amazing the best book I have read in a while, I've read it twice so far and plan on reading it again, it's got twists and turns you don't expect and a massive cliff hanger of an ending. It is the perfect book for a teenager, totally recommend if you're looking for a beautiful and touching love story

- Brilliant5 star

I was totally hooked!!! I've also read book 2 and was so 3 isn't out until November :( Can't wait. Brilliant read.

- Had me hooked5 star

Really good story, extremely well written and the characters have depth. Love reading a book where I don't want to put it down.

- Amazing5 star

Couldn't put this book down can't wait to get the the other series

- V good4 star

I absolutely love Charlotte! the book itself is very nicely written, good enough to grab the second one!

- Amazing5 star

I absolutely loved this book and read it in 3 days which is quick for me because I'm a slow reader. Also, i find that when I read a book, if it doesn't pull me in after the 2-3rd chapter then I get bored, but this book was amazing from first to the last word! I thought it would be better with a few romantic and saucy bits in it ;) but still the best book I've read so far!

- NK5 star

Amazing book! I literally can not wait for the 3rd I've read hundreds of books and this one really got to me! I laughed and cried and fell in love with the characters! I can't recommend it enough!

- Must read5 star

I hadnt picked up a book in a while, and i thought why not give it another go. So i did, i started reading this book, and then it got to me. I couldn't stop reading it! I got to the end,and i didn't know it was a series, so i immediately brought the next book. It was very annoying to find that i had finished second hearts, to have to wait until 25th November for the next book of the series storm shells. The wishing series have made me cry my eyes out at several different times. Its a great book, so if your thinking about reading it, then you must do! It gets very addicting to find out what happens to Adam and Charli!

- Amazing!5 star

I loved this book from the very first chapter. This is the type of book that kept me awake through the night and had me hiding in the bathroom just so I could fit in another chapter. I would recommend to anyone who loves to read! My only disappointment was to have the love making scenes completely skipped out! Apart from that I thought it was amazing. Very humerus with parts that had me covering my mouth at 3am trying to muffle the sound of my laughter as I did not want to wake up my sleeping partner. Loved every second and cannot wait to read the next one!!!!

- Saving wishes5 star

Excellent would love to see a movie from this addictive. 😘

- Tears!!5 star

I have to admit I cried a whole bunch of rivers at this book haha. It's a really good book with a few unpredictable twists. The way the author portrays Adam just makes you fall hopelessly in love with him just like Charlotte had. It's quite emotional but I absolutely loved it

- Brill5 star

Brilliant until i reached nearly the end to see THE END ;( didnt realise it was a series, tho defo cant wait too read book 2 now, best book i have read in a while!!

- Lovely4 star

Beautifully written love story. The characters are so vivid and touching. I really enjoyed it.

- Didn't finish it2 star

I only got as far as 11 chapters then I decided to stop reading as I was bored & found i already knew what was going to happen in the end of this book. There was nothing that happened that made me what to read on.

- Lovely writing but...3 star

...after a point, the main character's self sabotage becomes annoying. I really loved the story until nearly the end and then couldn't bring myself to finish it. It's beautifully written but just a bit 2D at times. And I don't like angst when there's no real reason for it.

- A rare treasure..5 star

Initially, I was skeptical whilst reading this book. But these doubts instantly vanished as I continued reading. Charli is a dreamer, and viewing the world through her eyes makes you wonder how much magic you fail to see in the world. Cue the arrival of Adam, and both of their lives change instantly. Saying anymore would not provide justice to the story. The depth given to the characters in this book is often lacking in others. But my personal favourite relationship would be between Alex and Charli. Both share a bond so sweet and understated, you can only admire the literary skills of the author. I always think the quality of a book is based on how long it takes to detach yourself from the story and its after reading. So saying that this book continues to be part of my thoughts days after completion is the highest praise from an avid reader like myself.

Don't think. Just read it. 👌

- Meh2 star

This story seemed to never pick up. The romance felt trite and the plot was weak. The cliffhanger ending is about the only thing compelling me to look at the second book in the series.

- 😯😯😯😯😯😯😯5 star

This story is amazing it's beautiful and breathtaking and so incredibly sad and well woven together and so many other indescribable things

- Loved it!!5 star

Such a good read!!! Wish the second book was free.

- Young Love4 star

The book was easy to read and held my interest. The only negative I have is why do we have to encourage under age sex and not finishing school. The story would be just as great if every one was legal...

- Fantastic5 star

Great story all around. Captivating characters and and story line. Best book I've read in a long time!

- Must read5 star

An absolute must read. I enjoyed every bit of it.

- You will love this series5 star

I very rarely give five stars...I'm just too critical. But this book and the whole series were so captivating. The characters are so well developed and the writing is just plain good. I have reread the series twice now and will probably read it again soon!

- OMG.5 star

This is the best book ever!! I would totally rate it 5 stars and more if I could. Can WAIT to read the second!!!

- Lovely5 star

I absolutely love this book and all the ones that follow it. It is my favorite series besides Harry Potter, and I love me some Harry Potter. The story that is told over the progress over seven books is so amazingly detailed and connected but not so hard that the reader gets confused. I feel like I really know and understand Adam and Charli, and all the surprises that come along the way are so wonderful.

- Love it5 star

I absolutely love this book. I've read it so many times that I'm pretty sure I've memorized it by now.

- Simply amazing5 star

I must say I was skeptical about the series at first but you really get carried into the story. I must say I could not put this one down and waited (on edge) for the rest of the series to be released. A truly great story.

- Awesome5 star

So good , couldn't put down, the whole series are a must read!

- Captivating & Addictive5 star

I must admit that I have never left a review for any book before... until now! I vowed to make time to tell you how amazing this book is! I just could not put the book down! This book had me very emotional at times and I found myself in tears more than once, something that I haven't experienced in a long time. Thank you for sharing your excellent gift of writing with us GJ Walker-Smith!!

- Review5 star

This is the best book I have every read I love the story line

- Love love love5 star

Charli and Adams love story just beings here! I read this book in a day and had told myself to wait for pay day to buy the second book...but didn't! I had to read it! I just love them!

- Addicting and a wonderful series...5 star

So beautifully written... I love it!!!

- Wat should i say?5 star

I loved this book. Its not ur average romance book of where the grl falls in love and the guy becomes her prince charming and the end. Its much more than that!

- 10 stars!5 star

Awesome book. I would recommend anyone to buy it. There was an aspect of ambiguity and also realism that made the story both realistic and relatable. I loved it. Plot twist after it twist.

- Be Careful3 star

It looked like a good book. But the first few paragraphs there was a swear word. Not very appropriate. Probably only for adults.

- Love the book5 star

This is my favorite book.GJ Walker-Smith always keeps you guessing throughout the book. She dosen’t tell a typically love story and that is what drew me in. I would recommend this book to everyone.

- AMAZINGNESS 😄😄😄😄‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️5 star

This book is very good and in one of my favorites. If anyone says this book is bad, ignore them, cause they are so wrong. This is a must read.

- Wow!5 star

The Wishes Series is spectacular. Each book has touched my soul in its own way. I can't even put into words the emotions GJ brings to the surface through her writing. I can't wait to see what else she has in store for us!

- Awesome read5 star

This book has everything. It has romance, humor, action, second chances, what ifs, magic, etc. You'll sure to fall in love with the characters and hate some, too. I'll be reading this over and over and share this with my daughter in the future.

- Favorite Book! 📚5 star

This is an amazing book it got me to love reading! I have read it three time now plus the rest the series. I can't wait for the next book to come out... If you like to read or you don't like to read it anyway it will change your mind. I fell in love with this book from the first chapter. When you read it you will fall in love with the whole family and you won't be able to stop reading this series!!!😍👍👌❤️📔📚📖 #⃣1⃣

- Awesome5 star

I really enjoy this book a lot..I can't wait to read the rest of the books!!! I couldn't put this book down! Keep up the good work!!!!

A must read!!

Never regretted to download, read, buy the next book and pre-order the last installment of the Wishes! Best book i read in a year 😍

- Must read!!!5 star

I was hooked on this book from the very beginning! It was impossible to put down! I enojoyed every page of this book! I loved gettting to know the characters and growing with Charli and her relationship with Adam! GJ had a way of detailing everything, it painted pictures in my mind while I read it. I love this whole series. Have read them multiple times! I will definitely be a life-long fan!<3

- Amazing story! <35 star

I've truly love this story, so beautiful! Saving wishes really took me far and beyond of myself, from laughs to tears. And unexpected ending that has left me wanting for more LA la land. Adam and Charli are a great sample of how a love story should be portrait: true, unique and real yet passionate. GJ Walker-Smith really did it, it's so well written and also reflects the meaning of self respect which you don't see now. I love it, anxiously waiting for more. Highly recommended if you're looking for a wonderful story that takes you to the edge of excitement, delight, laugh and tears so you must read it. Thank you GJ Walker-Smith, you and your series ROCK!!! <3

- Amazing!5 star

One of the best love stories I have read in sometime. The story is so addictive you won't find the will to stop reading. Charli and Adam will make you fall in love with them just as I did. So stop reading this and get a copy of the story now!

- Great book!5 star

Absolutely love this book! (And the rest in the series!) if you need something new to read, it should definitely be this. You won't regret it!

- Saving Wishes5 star

I really enjoyed the book and the characters in it. Charli makes some pretty weak decisions without much thought. However at the end of the book her maturity and her need to find Adam sets her on a road she would never have been able to handle if it wasn't for all her experiences in the situations she encountered. She now has the courage to move forward alone.

- Must read5 star

A great book however the seventh book isn't as good the first 6 are amazing

- Fair Warning: You Will Become Addicted...5 star

...And forced to buy the other books in the series. I can't explain why but I have completely fallen in love with the characters. I find myself staying up too late to read a little more and as I finish one novel, I can't wait to download the next. Romance, humor, and relatable characters. Try this first one, you will be glad you did.

- Awsome5 star

Amazing book

- Addicted to this series5 star

I've only just stumbled upon this series & after the first book I was hooked. I absolutely couldn't put it down!! I would recommend this series to anyone because once you read this first book it's hard to stop and have to read more. A wonderful love story and lots of unexpected twists & turns. Kudos to G.J. Walker-Smith. I'm so glad to have stumbled on your first book and can't wait to finish the rest of the series now that I have just finished the second!!

- Very addictive.5 star

I read the whole series in less than a week. I relate so much to the main character, I found myself looking at her philosophies even. It's a must read.

- Great Read5 star

This was a fantastic book. Excited to read entire series!

- Excellent5 star

This book is so good! It's very entertaining and I couldn't put it down! This book should definitely become a movie. It's up there with the fault in our starts.

- Good yet disappointing4 star

I really enjoyed reading this book. The plot was strong and the characters were relatable. However, there were a lot of unanswered plot twists when the book concluded. It seems like the author is just trying to stretch out the series and keep the reader wanting more. I was so confused when the book ended because it seemed like the middle of a thought. I am not going to read the second book or the rest of the series because I know the others will also have inconclusive plots meant to generate more sales. Looking at other reviews it doesn't seem like the main characters story will be concluded until the 3rd book.

- Two Words....5 star

READ IT!!Best book after TFIOS 👍👍👍

- Kae5 star


- Emotional Rollercoaster🎢5 star

This book is literally the best thing I have read since The Fault In Our Stars written by John Green. It was not only an emotional roller-coaster for Charli and Adam but for me and I am sure any other reader as well...📖💕😭

- G . J . Walker4 star

I loved all the books in this series. I got hooked when I read the first one and had to buy the rest. It's not your conventional love story. It's a great book and I could relate to it. This is my first time of leaving a review so better believe the books are amazing!

- Amazing Read5 star

Wow. This book was way better than I expected. It made me smile and made me PMS all over the place. There were a bit of grammatical errors in some places but the book was still enjoyable. If you are looking for a great romance novel that's pretty short, this is the book for you.

This book made me smile, laugh and cry!!! Such a true to life story about insecurities we all have and sometime make them the axis that our world revolves around. LOVE, priorities, choices and everything in between was perfectly woven ... Just FELL IN LOVE WITH IT.

- Amazing read5 star

I have had this book for ages and had not read it, always putting it off. What a mistake that was this is the best book I have read in a while - and I read A LOT. Thank you to GJ Walker Smith for this gem it will stay with me for a long time as well as all the fairy stories. What a beautiful character Charli is reigniting my belief in magic. Fantastic!

Soooooooooo good! This story has made me laugh and cry so often. I love Charli. Thank you and can't wait to read the next part of her journey! D

- Good Casual Read3 star

3.5 stars - I don't know I'm kinda torn to give it a 4 too... It was a good book. I enjoyed the characters and the hidden twist, but sometimes I felt like I was thrown from one scene to another without any connections. The personality of Charli was sometimes all over the place too. Enjoyed this read - if you're looking for a casual young romance novel then you've found the book! =)

- Saving wishes5 star
