BECOMING JINN BY LORI GOLDSTEIN
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.

I think Becoming Jinn sounds awesome and a bit different from what I have read, yet I think I will love it. I hope so, anyway :D I cannot wait to read this book. And omg, new cover arrived last week, via Hafsah at Icey Books. <3 And it is stunning. I love the purple. And the ring is gorgeous too. Yeah. I'm just very excited about this book. Hoping for an amazing story with a gorgeous romance too, hih :)

This is a gorgeous cover, and the book definitely sounds intriguing. I look forward to your review of it. :)ReplyDelete
You need to read (or "preview") this and tell me if it has any sort of love triangle! But I agree, the story sounds like lots of fun. I like this trend to write Jinn books.ReplyDelete
I LOVE THE NEW PURPLE COVER! Purple is my favorite color :D I'll be reading this one soon! I hope you enjoy this book if/when you read it!ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous week, Carina :)
