Hi, there! I gave up on posting my TBR of the Week early on mornings if I’m doing live posts, so I’m sorry if this one is so late 😦 But it’s here nevertheless, haha!
Today I picked an Aladdin retelling: A Whole New World, first book in the Twisted Tales series, by Liz Braswell!
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 got interested: IT’S A DISNEY ALADDIN RETELLING FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! OF COURSE I AM INTERESTED! It’s practically authorized fanfiction!! *–* I NEED TO READ THIS AND SO DO YOU IF YOU, LIKE ME, IS A CRAZY DISNEY FAN!
Ahem, thanks for reading and sorry for the outburst, haha! Have you read A Whole New World? 🙂
