Waiting on Wednesday : Becoming Jinn


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

For the people who already read As You Wish by Jackson Pearce, The Art of Wishing by  Lindsay Ribar and Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios, or just read any of these, I am 100% accurate that Becoming Jinn will be on your radar. Otherwise, if you haven't yet read any of those books, I highly suggest that you should read it!

Reading about genie/jinn is one of the themes that I'm fond of. Every author made different spin off with regards to the beginning of their life up to what they are in the modern times. And I like how these authors were able to play with those parts.

So when I searched for upcoming books that will be published on 2015, I'm so delighted to see that one of them has a new book about Jinn. (!!!) Now I am counting down the days up to its release date to have a copy of Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein.

Becoming Jinn (Becoming Jinn, #1)
Forget everything you thought you knew about genies!

Azra 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.

Mentored 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.

Expected publication is on April 21st 2015 by Feiwel & Friends
