Once Upon A Genie -by Durriya Kapasi

BLURB – Daisy had no idea what was in store for her when she uncovered the priceless reward concealed in a miscellaneous bottle; a super sexy genie that would pull the rugs below her feet. Khalil Muwahid, the genie owed Daisy his gratitude for freeing him from the trap. He generously asked her for three wishes without holding any grudges against her. Gradually there was a strong connection between them, the bond of love. Also, the rules of Djinn world were amended for their love, where Daisy wasn’t supposed to ask for the third wish since they could be together, everlastingly. BUT on the horns of Dilemma, Darren, Daisy’s best friend’s life was at threat. Does she use the last wish to save Darren? Or does she save her love?


TITLE AND COVER – The title is very catchy and indulges you into knowing more about what the book is about. The cover is so amazing with the glossy cover, i instantly fell for the book. And the blurb all the more, lets you want to read the book very eagerly. Keeping the suspense alive and not giving much.

THEMES COVERED – love,  imagination, sacrifice and hope.

CHARACTERS – daisy is the main character and soul of the story, Darren is her best friend and then the hero – khalil( the genie).  You will absoulutely love daisy’s character of how bubbly cheerful and caring she is. Darren is her best friend and funny. Khalil makes you fall in love with him instantly! Less characters and beautiful plot by the author.

PACE – medium paced.

STORY – It is a different book for sure.  Starts with daisy’s grandmas death and she leaving a gift for her. when unknowingly she frees the genie away. little did she know and she fell in love with khalil – who asks her for her three wishes and wants to go back to the genie land. they fall in love. she has already asked for two wishes now what about the third one? read the book to know more!

WHAT YOU WILL REALLY LOVE – We all want something surreal? don’t we. This book takes you to a sweet trip. lucid language and easy flowing. The way each incident has been described, the freshness of the story. the way each persons dialogue is given with its name , which will not confuse you at all during reading it. It definitely keeps you hooked to the book, and with the ending the book. I am really waiting for its second book. Also as a debut book by the author – she has done a tremendous job. you will feel connected to the story – the pain and the love. The scenes between daisy and genie, also few hilarious incidents that take place. makes you believe in magic all over again!

definitely recommended.

overall -4/5

I would like to thank the author – Durriya kapasi to provide me the book in exchange of an honest review!
