Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per
week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's
entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and
onto our wonderful shelves. This meme is hosted by Pen to Paper. This event is also posted as Waiting on Wednesday over at Breaking the Spine.
Book: Becoming Jinn
Author: Lisa Goldstein
Release Date: April 21, 2015
Forget everything you thought you knew about genies!
has just turned sixteen, and overnight her body lengthens, her olive
skin deepens, and her eyes glisten gold thanks to the brand-new silver
bangle that locks around her wrist. As she always knew it would, her
Jinn ancestry brings not just magical powers but the reality of a life
of servitude, as her wish granting is controlled by a remote ruling
class of Jinn known as the Afrit.
To the humans she lives among,
she’s just the girl working at the snack bar at the beach, navigating
the fryer and her first crush. But behind closed doors, she’s learning
how to harness her powers and fulfill the obligations of her destiny.
by her mother and her Zar “sisters”, Azra discovers she may not be
quite like the rest of her circle of female Jinn . . . and that her
powers could endanger them all. As Azra uncovers the darker world of
becoming Jinn, she realizes when genies and wishes are involved, there’s
always a trick.
I'm not so sure about this one anymore after some of the advanced reviews have come out, but who knows, maybe I will end up liking it :)
