The Forbidden WishThe Forbidden Wish - Jessica Khoury

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.

A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic, #2)A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) - V.E. Schwab

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path  with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games—an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries—a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again—meaning that another London must fall.

Mina tankar

Som jag har väntat på Jessica Khourys Aladdin-retelling, The Forbidden Wish, och äntligen är den här! Förhandsbokade den tillsammans med A Gathering of Shadows, så förhoppningsvis har jag dem båda två väldigt snart. Annars blev jag lite nyfiken på The Smell of Other People's Houses (alltså, vem blir inte nyfiken på en bok med den titeln och det omslaget!?) som jag sett lite här och var den senaste tiden men aldrig riktigt brytt mig om att kolla upp ordentligt - förrän nu. Den utspelar sig i Alaska på 1970-talet och handlar om fyra väldigt olika ungdomar och hur deras vägar korsas. Jag älskar ju böcker där relationer står i centrum à la Melina Marchetta så tror verkligen att det här kan vara något för mig. Den har dessutom redan fått väldigt fina recensioner.
