May 16, Aj the Ravenous Reader rated it liked it Shelves: A highly entertaining, enjoyable and humorous romantic novel. She spends more than half the book as a doormat with perhaps two little acts of defiance. And the romance between Nellie and her love is cute but not sizzling.
Personally I thought the most interesting character in the book deveeraux perhaps Berni and that was even stretching it abit.
I spent most of my time not focusing on the romance but on Nellies complete and utter nativity and total lack he Heroine and that’s stretching it a bit is one of the most pathetic characters I’ve about in awhile.
I spent most of my time not focusing on the romance but on Nellies complete and utter nativity and total lack of self esteem. I wanted desperately for her to see her own worth and stand up for herself instead of Jace always giving her a pep talk. How can you even begin to love someone else if you don’t even love yourself first or at the very least have a little self respect?
Now for her sister Terel. If you really want to picture Terel just think of that mean popular chick in high school who has the face of angel but always gives back handed compliments like deferaux know what you’d be really pretty ddveraux it weren’t iwshes zit on your nose” Yeah remember her?

Deveraxu here and poor Nellie of course always stuffs her face with every criticism her sister doles out. So yes please save your money and yourself a little aggravation and pass on this book.
Jun 21, Shanelle rated it did not like it Shelves: This is NOT a better love story than Twilight. And that’s about as harsh as one can get. Definitely one of the weirdest books I’ve ever read. At the end of it all, I don’t get what the book was trying to say. That true love triumphs over every obstacle? Devraux that, magic trumps it all.
Why introduce any conflict at all if you would fix them with a Deux or Douche Machina fairy godmother? If the fairy godmother could’ve made people fall in love with whomever, why did we even have this book? That you reap what you sow?
There is no such thing as comeuppance. Apparently, selfishness and cruelty will get you exactly where kindness and self-sacrifice will, but with much less effort.
That despite being called fat or overweight, people jhde still appreciate you juxe long as you’re kind and good? No such thing, let’s make the heroine instantly kude by magic! That the hero liked the overweight heroine because of her golden heart and glowing soul?
Nope, he liked her because he had some Oedipus complex going on, devdraux his opera devraux mother and her amigas were also overweight. Gaah, this book makes me so angry for being so stupid and pointless. Such a waste of my life. Don’t let it waste yours. I didn’t like it perfectly describes how I felt about it. The fairy Godmother was useless, the main chick is a doormat, and the only person I liked was the guy, but even he started to bug me after a while, I like reading about strong women and strong men, who come together in passion, and both make compromises, huh, I’ve just got an idea for what to request a romance novel for Dec 22, Rebecca rated it it was ok Shelves: The heroine for the most part is very lovable and beautiful, but I was very annoyed by many things.
Her eating out of judee was realistic and she needed emotional help for it, but since when is pounds considered morbidly obese?
Wishes • Jude Deveraux
If she was I would be concerned. The hero loved the young lady exactly as she was, so why have her lose weight? It was as though the author wanted everyone to “accept” the girl, and the only way to accomplish this is to make her thin, the way all women “have” to Degeraux heroine for the most part is very lovable and beautiful, but I was very annoyed by many things.
It reveraux as though the author wanted everyone to “accept” the girl, and the only way to accomplish this is to make her thin, the way all women “have” to be. The younger sister is a bitch.
We all know that. No need to say more. The modern devfraux is a bitch too, and ends up learning a good lesson. But the overall effect left me annoyed more than happy. Deveraux is a great and well known writer of womens’ romance and is a nice storyteller, but when you sense a refusal or reluctance to create a truly strong character because of society’s prescriptions of what women are supposed to be, it takes away from your enjoyment of the story.
I loved the heroine and hero anyway, especially the hero. Very rare to find a devdraux falling in love with plus sized woman. Nov 25, Alethea Kontis rated it it was amazing. Wishes is one of my favorite books of all time.
Escapist fiction magic at its best, in a recipe that bakes only pure happiness. The other book was The Princess Bride. The concept had soooooo much potential, but it was horribly executed and completely unrealistic, even when you add in the “magic” of the “fairy godmother. Sep 29, Maria rated it it was amazing Judf A delightfully entertaining vision of what it might be like when we die.
I was a bit startled to find Jjude, having died in the 21st century, being sent back to the 18th to help Nellie.
Jace Montgomery is visiting in Colorado with newfound family in the Kane Taggerts when he meets the plump Nellie whose thinner and younger sister has always ruled the roost.
Jace doesn’t even look at Terel. All he can wisyes is Nellie. Nellie eats so much that I almost felt ill reading about it.
Fiction Book Review: Wishes by Jude Deveraux, Author Pocket Books $ (0p) ISBN
For once, I think a A delightfully entertaining vision of what it might be like when we die. For once, I think a book with so much food has put me off the thought of eating.
It may be the best diet book I’ve ever read. It certainly takes your appetite away. If I lose weight over the next few days, I may re-read it sooner rather than later.
I loved the ending as well as the beginning, which isn’t always a given with Deveraux. Dec 26, Evelyn Wilson rated it it was amazing Shelves: OMG this book was SO good! I have to look up what book that would be! Jan 29, Linda rated it liked it. Devsraux was a cute book and I was happy with the ending.
I liked Nellie and Jace and most of the rest of the characters drove me crazy, although I think I was supposed to dislike them. Jan 11, Kamy rated it it was ok Shelves: Kude is undoubtedly one of the weirdest books I have ever read. The plot is so unbelievably formulaic, the characters so steroetypically bland that I literally had to suspend any feeling realism in order to get any enjoyment out of this book.
