Wishlist Thursday[145]: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Razorbill

Release Date: February 23, 2016

Goodreads Synopsis:

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 Aladdin from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.


Since this is being described as a twist on Aladdin, there’s no way I’m not interested in this. And since I’m also intrigued by genies and magic, and this time it’s a girl in that role—I’m intrigued. I’m hoping to pick up a copy when I can.

What’s on your list?
