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…

Trixie Watson has two very important goals for senior year: to finally save enough to buy the set of Doctor Who figurines at the local comic books store, and to place third in her class and knock Ben West–and his horrendous new mustache that he spent all summer growing–down to number four. Trixie will do anything to get her name ranked over Ben’s, including give up sleep and comic books–well, maybe not comic books–but definitely sleep. After all, the war of Watson v. West is as vicious as the Doctor v. Daleks and Browncoats v. Alliance combined, and it goes all the way back to the infamous monkey bars incident in the first grade…

    • Yes! I heard about Forbidden Wish because of all the semi-hype and good reviews about it. And it’s a retelling of Aladdin, so that’s a big plus for me (since I love Aladdin, lol)! Hope you find some other novels that I mentioned interesting 😀

  4. I haven’t picked up a novel by Stacey Lee yet, but I hear she is amazing. I have Under a Pained Sky on my shelf and if I enjoy it, I’m going to be hunting down her other novels soon after. Hope you enjoy all these new titles you’ve added to your TBR!
