PRE-RELEASE REVIEW: “The Wish Augur” by Cecil Wilde



Gabriel Juarez has only one wish for Christmas, uttered moments before midnight on Christmas Eve: a hug. He wakes up the next morning to find his wish being haphazardly granted in the form of an insecure elf called Felix, who works as a wish augur and couldn’t bring himself to let Gabe’s wish go unfulfilled.


Short sweet review for a short sweet story:

Yes, there is that insta-love situation because it doesn’t take long for Gabriel to fall in love and throw caution to the wind to be with Felix. But look, this is a Christmas story (a short one, only 13.5 k)! And there is already magic in the first place – we have an elf! Such an endearing, adorable, insecure little elf here. I just couldn’t be too finicky about it since it made me feel happy that Gabriel found somebody who loved him and gave him happiness. He needed it.

So dismiss the insta-love effect. It’s a holiday story, it’s cute and magical. Take a leap of faith and just fall in love with Gabriel and his elf.

PS: I’m curious what Felix’s real name is!

About Ami

My name is Ami and I'm an Indonesian girl in my mid 30's, living in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. I used to do a lot of journal writing in a different website but over the years, I started to lose interest. I am, instead, pretty active in reading and writing opinion in Goodreads. Then I start thinking that maybe I can have a blog in which I write mostly about books or joy of reading or anything related to reading activity, really. So this is what this blog is for ... although, I may be inspired to write off-books topic as well :)
