Waiting on Wednesday: 06/10/15

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

A Whole New World (A Twisted Tale #1)

A Whole New World 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'm Waiting: First off, CONGRATS BRASWELL ON THIS AMAZING COVER! I was already super excited to read this one, but it really sealed the deal. But who wouldn't be ready to read this one? Reading a classic tale that I actually grew up with, but adding a twist? Of course I can't wait for this one! I actually have this one from Netgalley, but it is EATING AWAY AT MY CONSCIOUS THAT I CAN'T READ IT.
