Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on A Whole New World by Liz Braswell (September 1, 2015)
Summary From Good Reads
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
Why I’m Waiting
This sounds awesome! A Disney retelling? Bring it on! I love retellings, especially ones that change the story in unique ways. I’m excited for Jasmine, it sounds like she’ll be a badass in this retelling. And I hope Raja gets some awesome action too, make some use of a tiger side-kick! Maybe Raja and Abu will team up in hilarious awesomeness! There are endless possibilities with this; I can’t wait for September to read it!
