Waiting on Wednesday 253

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose: 

"The Fire Wish"
by Amber Lough
Random House Children's
Release Date:  July 22, 2014

A jinni. A princess. And the wish that changes everything. . . .

Najwa is a jinni, training to be a spy in the war against the humans. Zayele is a human on her way to marry a prince of Baghdad—which she’ll do anything to avoid. So she captures Najwa and makes a wish. With a rush of smoke and fire, they fall apart and re-form—as each other. A jinni and a human, trading lives. Both girls must play their parts among enemies who would kill them if the deception were ever discovered—enemies including the young men Najwa and Zayele are just discovering they might love.

Sounds so different from the fantasy we are used to seeing right now, with of course, a fairy tale twist!

What are you waiting for this week???


  1. This is outside my normal realm of reads (I can't remember ever reading a jinni book!) but the cover is great and the synopsis just as good! What a great pick! Thanks for another addition to my TBR! I look forward to it!

    Check out my WoW?

  2. Intriguing! Although it has me wondering if this trading lives will have dire consequences for one or the other! Those kinds of reads tend to make me sooooo tense!!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Eeep, this one was my WoW pick a few weeks back too!! I agree with you 100% that the premise sounds different from the usual ya-fare! Hopefully we can both get our hands on it soon :D
