Waiting on Wednesday: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks book that I'm desperate  waiting to get my hands on:

The Forbidden Wish  by Jessica Khoury

Publication: February 2, 2016

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling, Romance, Historical Fiction

Goodreads Summary

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 Arabian Nights from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.

Why I'm desperate for The Forbidden Wish:

A retelling of ALADDIN, you guys! *shrieks* Aaaaand in the point of view of the jinni whose in love with Aladdin! This just sounds so cool! And because I'm already half dead from not breathing properly, I might as well go all the way.....
