Waiting on Wed: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Waiting on Wed is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
It's something that she does every Wed where we pick a book that hasn't been released yet.

Author:Lori Goldstein
Expected publication: April 21st 2015 by Feiwel & Friends

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.
Why I'm waiting on this?
I'm not gonna lie I saw this one on some peoples WOWs last week, and I knew I had to add it because how many YAs are out that are about Genies? None that I can think of so it's a different paranormal creature. I actually just got approved for it on Netgalley as well so I'm pretty excited to get on it, but I still can't wait to have a pretty copy.


  1. I just got this from Netgalley too so hopefully we both like it. This is my first YA Genie book so I can't wait to read it. Great pick for this week!

  3. This sounds good, I hope you get to read it soon. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my WoW earlier. :)

  4. I'm really curious about this one! There definitely aren't many genie novels, so I hope this one is good! :) Great pick!
