Waiting on Wednesday (#60): The Fire Wish by Amber Lough


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


The Fire Wish by Amber Lough
Book One of The Fire Wish series
Publisher: Random House Children's
Publication Date: July 22, 2014

Summary (from Goodreads):

A jinni. A princess. And the wish that changes everything. . . . 

Najwa is a jinni, training to be a spy in the war against the humans. Zayele is a human on her way to marry a prince of Baghdad—which she’ll do anything to avoid. So she captures Najwa and makes a wish. With a rush of smoke and fire, they fall apart and re-form—as each other. A jinni and a human, trading lives. Both girls must play their parts among enemies who would kill them if the deception were ever discovered—enemies including the young men Najwa and Zayele are just discovering they might love.



FANTASY! This one sounds so great!

  4. Najwa doesn't sound like a good spy if she got caught haha. This sounds pretty cute, like Freaky Friday! ..But also action-y. Awesome pick, thanks for highlighting this!

    1. I have not seen a single review for this one.

    2. No? Hmm, I'm not sure where I heard it talked about, come to think of it. Maybe I'm confusing it with one of the (many) other new releases. Wouldn't be the first time. :)

    3. That could be it! Your comment made me panic a little internally, because I so want an ARC! Or eARC! So I would have hunted down those people who already read/reviewed this one (via ARC/eARC that is, if it were possible at the moment).

      And yeah there like a billion amazing 2014 (and 2015!) releases coming at us... I know your feeling ;)

  7. Ooh I haven't read many books about genies, but the fact that it's not only about them but also revolves around deception which is always a fun topic. Nice choice, Alyssa!

  10. Ooh! I like the sound of this! Like the Princess and the Pauper! On to the TBR list it goes! :)

    And it would've been amazing if your comment had simply been "FANTASY!" and that's it. I would've lol'ed. But maybe that's just me... :D

    1. I should have done that - simply blurted out one word, because OF COURSE that's a good enough reason ^_^ Although, "fantasy" IS a more than good enough reason. Hehe!
