Waiting on Wednesday - A Whole New World

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week on WoW is A Whole New World by Liz Braswell. I know this book has been receiving bad reviews, but I still want to give it an opportunity. If I hate it then... oh, well, I probably already read worse books. The book will be released on September 1st.

"Welcome to a new YA series that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways. Each book asks the question: What if one key moment from a familiar Disney film was changed? This dark and daring version of Aladdin twists the original story with the question: What if Jafar was the first one to summon the Genie?

When Jafar steals the Genie’s lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish.To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed Princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war.

What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again."

  1. I don't remember much from the Aladdin movie - I didn't enjoy the classic Disney movies as a kid. I know, I'm totally weird but this is such an interesting theme to reimagine such classics! Can't wait to see the other ones! Enjoy!

  3. I saw the bad reviews for this as well, but I guess I'd give it a try myself, too. With all the books I want to read, it's not very likely though.
