Waiting on Wednesday: Circle of Jinn (Becoming Jinn #2) by Lori Goldstein

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  My choice this week is a sequel, but it is a sequel to a book I wasn't quite sure if I was blown away by, Becoming Jinn.  It was good enough that I do want to read on though.  So here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Being Jinn is Azra’s new reality. As she grants wishes under the watchful eye of the Afrit council, she remains torn between her two worlds—human and Jinn. Soon, secrets spill. Zars are broken. Humans become pawns. And rumors of an uprising become real as the Afrit’s reach extends beyond the underground world of Janna.

Straddling the line becomes impossible. Aware of her unique abilities, Azra must not just face but embrace her destiny. But when the role she must play and those she must protect expand to include a circle of Jinn greater than her own, Azra will be forced to risk everything. A risk that means there’s everything to lose, and at the same time, everything to gain—for herself and her entire Jinn race.

In this dramatic sequel to Becoming Jinn, Azra’s story comes to a heartfelt and thrilling conclusion.


Have you started this series yet?  Does it sound like one you'd like to start if you haven't  yet?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  1. Well I haven't started the series yet but the first book has been on my tbr shelf since it first came out - there is simply not enough time in the day/week/month/year to read ALL of the books we want to! Le sigh. Hopefully the sequel here will officially blow you away :) Awesome pick Lisa and happy hump day! xx

  5. I haven't read the first one in this series and am not sure if I am going to :/ I know people had a lot of mixed feelings on the book. I am looking forward to hearing what they have to say about this one, and if it is good enough I might just embark on the series myself ;)

    1. Yeah, if I get an advanced copy of it, I'll probably read it like I did with the first one. But it will need to be better in order for me to go on after that.
