Waiting on Wednesday (20) The Forbidden Wish

Waiting on Wednesday (20)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're excited about.

This week, I'm excited about:

Title: The Forbidden Wish
Author: Jessica Khoury
Pages: 368
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: February 23, 2016

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 Arabian Nights from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.

So I have Arabian Nights as I believe I mentioned in some post at some point.  Anyway, I like Aladdin and this looks pretty fun.

What are you waiting on?
