    As a grandmother, I loved this exciting book. I can imagine how much more my teenage granddaughters will love it. It's soooooo romantic and soooooo dangerous and soooooo modern.Isabelle Merlin is a terrific writer and if her heroine, Rose, writes as well as Isabelle, she WILL become a best selling author one day. :) I highly recommend Three Wishes and suggest that you have nothing else to do when you open this book, because you won't be able to put it down.Wendy Laharnar-author The Unhewn Stonesoon from Enspiren Press.www.bebo.com/WendyL38http://wendylaharnar.blogspot.com

    I was happy to FINALLY read a book by an Australian author. I mean, apart from John Marsden, who is there, really? OK, I'm not a fan of romances, not by any stretch of the imagination. This one wasn't too bad, though. I mean, the setting was nice and I enjoyed the fact that Rose is actually a 3D heroine who isn't 'special' or 'marked' (eg: she isn't dubbed as 'The Chosen One') even though she is an orphan, of course. Loved the whole French thing, and it was awesome having a combination of romance and mystery. But, oh hell, a love triangle. Please someone, show me a romance that ISN'T a love triangle. Please. Just one. This was actually a reasonably good triangle - even though the whole Charlie thing was kinda... blunt. I mean, who kisses someone an hour after meeting them? ...Seriously?And who accepts it as normal? So yeaaaaaah... Paul all the way XDAnd I loved that chapter where you didn't know who the villain was. I was reading through it, wondering who it was. ONE MORE RANT - JUST ONE: I HATED THE STUPID BLOG. SOOOOOOOOO TRY-HARD. I MEAN, IT'S PRETTY DANG OBVIOUS THAT ROSE ISN'T REAL, NOR IS KOSCHEI OR PORTIA/MADDY/ALICE/OTHER FRIEND WITH NO PERSONALITY. SO PLEASE. I JUST WANT TO SIT DOWN AND READ THE BLOODY BOOK, NOT LOG ONTO MY COMPUTER EVERY TEN PAGES AND GO ONTO THE GOSH DARN BLOG. So yeah. Not too bad, I would recommend it to those who can't cope with 'big books' or 'complicated books'. It takes practically no brain cells to read it. Not my all-time favourite but not a waste of time either.

    Loved it! The only disappointment I experienced was that the beginning was very slow, but when she went to France, the story became so compelling and lovable! :D

    I loved the plot of the story, but I did not like the writing style. I felt like the language of the book did not flow and I found a few typos in the text. The ending seemed rushed and it wasn't until the end that I realized Rose was recounting the story through writing in her journal. Overall, the idea for the book was amazing. The author and her writing style not so much.

    It was okay. The beginning wasn't interesting or entertainig. But the story was full of twists, and the ending was rather shocking.

    My rating: 1/5 starsFrom the very moment I read the blurb I knew I was going to be disappointed. I mean, any book with ‘Rose becomes enchanted with her new life, and particularly with Charlie, a charming boy who is equally besotted with Rose’ on the blurb was bound to be cliché, cringe-worthy and way too predictable, but in an act of stupidity I chose to read it anyway.Merlin’s writing was unoriginal and multiple times throughout the novel I found myself rephrasing her words (and I can’t write to save my life!) as an attempt to make the story slightly more enjoyable for myself, although it didn’t work. This unfortunately led to me guessing the whole plot and being correct the whole time, which I must say was a real spoilsport for me. I could kind of see where Merlin was going with the whole ‘three wishes’ and ‘careful what you wish for’ theme throughout the book, but honestly, it just didn’t work out for her. Instead it left the novel hanging (in a bad way) in the midst of everyday reality and fantasy, which ruined the whole book’s flow. I must end with that I was looking forward to reading this novel, regrettably however Merlin just failed to deliver. Shreema

    So this is a re-read and good god is this classified as "guilty pleasure" for a reason. It's not fantastically written and tends to go down the easy route of Mary Sue orphan finds herself in a somewhat interesting mystery tainted with a love triangle with not much build up with the romance whatsoever so it feels quite forced and unnatural. French men aren't that forward, are they? The climax is kind of a let down because the writer (Isabelle Merlin) tends to tell and not show. I suppose the way it's written is from a seventeen year old perspective who is reliving a traumatising event in her life, but it reads like almost everyone loves her and she's "adorably awkward" and people just can't help themselves around her and if they don't like her it's because those people are stuck up or have glaringly obvious negative character traits. And also - you were nearly murdered. Why are you having jovial conversations with the good samaritan who saved you and he just has to mention you're pretty? Unnecessary for a good story. And again, more telling, no showing. I think the only reason I keep this book is because there is a good story here, it's just very well conveyed. P.S. Too many friends equals very little characterisation.

    Well, agak ketebak tapi suka ceritanya cuma bagian terjemahannya kadang kurang populer dan kadang agak kebalikbalik. Tapi sejak awal udah suka sama paul fountaine, dan curiga sama si charlie. Ngeri banget kl ada orang macem charlie. Sedih waktu kakek sama sopirnya kecelakaan nice work, cuma kadant bingung sama perasaan si rose. Agak kecepetannya dy care sama charlienya. Dan curiga ke paulnya kelamaan hahaha.. sering sebel sih bagian dy nyebutnyebut charlie.Fairytalenya kerasa bingo. Dan effort penulisnya yg sampe bikin 2blog utk ngelengkapin tulisannya juga good job.

    I loved this story. I read this a few years ago, because I hadn't read anything in a long time and I needed to get back into reading, and this book reminded me of why I loved reading books in the first place. This book was exciting to read and the characters just kept getting more interesting the more I read on. The mystery in this was great and I didn't guess any of the twists, I have read three other Isabelle Merlin books and I haven't guessed the twists in those either! It's just a lovely book and I am so glad I own it so I can turn to it whenever I need a good book to read.

    really cute novel, an easy read for year 7-8, innocent faux mystery fairy story set in France with links to a blog, which while a clever idea has not been updated recently. It has some great lines such as what she thinks of a teacher: 'I used to think that teachers stayed at school all night, sort of sat on shelves or something wit the lights off till morning. Like frogs in a drought, waiting underground for rain to make them croak again.' :) Charmant.

    Sebetulnya yang saya baca yang versi Indonesia. Tapi tidak nemu covernya.Bagian tentang Rose yang mudah berpindah hati--meski bisa-bisa saja atau sah-sah saja--kesannya memaksa sekali. Terlalu ... begitulaaah. Tapi sense of mystery-nya cukup menegangkan juga.

    The book Three Wishes by Isabelle Merlin was quite a read. It was a bit confusing yet it kept making me want to go back and read it to find out more. I enjoyed the little twists and I think the idea of the blog with the story was one so clever!

    At first I thought the book was gonna be a sort of girly book because of the cover. But it turned out to be a murder mystery for teens kinda book. And I liked it. That's why they say "Don't judge the book by its cover"

    It was a good book, not awesome, but nice. It just that i was expecting something like Victoria Holt but in modern time. It did have mystery and romance and its located in a castle, just like most of gothic books, but something was missing. I just wasnt into the character of Rose.

    Da muss man nicht viel zu sagen...alles ziemlich flach. Immerhin am Ende spannend, wobei das Mittel, was die Autorin da benutzt hat, auch leicht zu durchschauen war. Und ich mag die Hauptperson nicht, was mir eher selten passiert.^^ Aber vielleicht bin ich zu alt für die Altersgruppe...^^

    thought it was pretty good. the story itself was quite cute. i thought it was awesome that she made actual websites to match her story that you could go and look at. it was just a really cool idea and made her sotry exciting even after the book was finished and more real.

    This was Isabelle Merlin's first novel. Beware: read it - and you'll be left praying for more. If you love a bit of mystery with heaps of romance thrown in for good measure, this is the book for you. I'm hanging out for number four, so hurry up Ms. Merlin! Recommended for ages 10-101...

    I read this in high school in 2009 and this year I remembered reading it, but had no clue of the title, or the author, this frustrated me to no end and I have spent months trying to find it, today I found it using WorldCat and am so very happy. Great book!

    Kinda of wish I didn't take a look at the ending. Suspense was gone. I saw what's coming next.

    I really like this book. It was a bit creepy to find out that the person who was sending her threats, was that person whom she trusted the most.

    I love this book so much. It is so addictive. Once you start reading it you can't stop. I also have a little crush on the character Paul.
