This week my pick for "Waiting on Wednesday" is The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury!
She is the most powerful Jinni of all. He is a boy from the streets. Their love will shake the world…
When Aladdin discovers Zahra’s jinni lamp, Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn’t seen in hundreds of years — a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra’s very existence is illegal. She must disguise herself to stay alive, using ancient shape-shifting magic, until her new master has selected his three wishes.
But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever, she seizes the opportunity—only to discover she is falling in love with Aladdin. When saving herself means betraying him, Zahra must decide once and for all: is winning her freedom worth losing her heart?
As time unravels and her enemies close in, Zahra finds herself suspended between danger and desire in this dazzling retelling of Aladdin from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.
The Forbidden Wish releases February 23, 2016!
Why I'm waiting:
So I've got to admit that I've been a really bad YA fan this year thanks to my love for new adult and adult contemporary romance books, but I'm looking to change that in 2016 and finally get back into YA. And out of all the YA books coming out next year, the one that is particularly calling to me is The Forbidden Wish. From that stunning cover to the blurb, this book looks and sounds like it's going to be an amazing and I can't wait until the copy that I pre-ordered is in my hands in late February!
So what are y'all waiting on this week?
