Hey y’all! In contrast to Throwback Thursday, I like to use Fridays to look forward to an upcoming release that I’m excited about! Today’s is This Woven Kingdom by Tahereh Mafi! Now, admittedly, this release isn’t one I have to look forward to for much longer because it’s actually out today!!! 🥰 Here’s why I’ve been counting down the days.
Expected Release: February 1, 2022 (er…today!!!)
Why wait on this one?
- This one might sound odd, but: the blurb is so short. That always feels like a bit of a risk to me, but at the same time, when a blurb about a book is short, it often means that there is just SO MUCH TO DISCOVER by reading it that there isn’t much to say without taking away some of that fun!
- 2And what we do get from the blurb is my catnip: prophecy; fate; royalty; kingdoms; hierarchy; secrets; and JINN?! FRICKIN GENIES AND MAGIC?? ABSOLUTELY YES I WILL READ THIS!!
- “Inspired by Persian mythology.” A thing I know little about and desperately want to know more about. Sounds like a perfect fit!!!
To all the world, Alizeh is a disposable servant, not the long-lost heir to an ancient Jinn kingdom forced to hide in plain sight.
The crown prince, Kamran, has heard the prophecies foretelling the death of his king. But he could never have imagined that the servant girl with the strange eyes, the girl he can’t put out of his mind, would one day soon uproot his kingdom—and the world.
Clashing empires, forbidden romance, and a long-forgotten queen destined to save her people—bestselling author Tahereh Mafi’s first in an epic, romantic trilogy inspired by Persian mythology.
