Goodreads Summary:
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.


One word, genies!! I have yet to read any book on them so I'm excited :D

What are you guys waiting on this week?

    1. Yep sounds so unique too! it's been too long! I noticed you don't post as much. School has been keeping you busy? Btw I love the new blog look! I know you've had it for awhile but just thought I'd let you know ;)

  11. Ah, I'm in the middle of this one and so far it's pretty fun. If you're looking for jinni books, though, there was one that was released last year called EXQUISITE CAPTIVE that is really good! Plus you don't have to wait for it, hah.
