Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Mythology
SynopsisBeing Jinn is Azra’s new reality. As she grants wishes under the watchful eye of the Afrit council, she remains torn between her two worlds—human and Jinn. Soon, secrets spill. Zars are broken. Humans become pawns. And rumors of an uprising become real as the Afrit’s reach extends beyond the underground world of Janna.
Straddling the line becomes impossible. Aware of her unique abilities, Azra must not just face but embrace her destiny. But when the role she must play and those she must protect expand to include a circle of Jinn greater than her own, Azra will be forced to risk everything. A risk that means there’s everything to lose, and at the same time, everything to gain—for herself and her entire Jinn race.
In this dramatic sequel to Becoming Jinn, Azra’s story comes to a heartfelt and thrilling conclusion.
As soon as I saw the opportunity to be on the tour for Circle of Jinn, I knew this was the perfect time for me to pick up Becoming Jinn, that had been lying untouched in my Kindle for a while now. I pretty much sped read through the MAGICAL first book in the AMAZING duology, and I loved every second of it. 

The book opens up with Azra, who is currently granting wishes under the direction of the Afrit council. She's still struggling with her estrangement from her sisters in the Jinn world, among other things that I simply won't ruin for you because YOU NEED TO READ THIS SERIES!

I mean, it has GENII! And Magic! It felt so Aladdin-y, which happens to be my bests friend's favorite Disney movie, and he cannot stop singing the songs, so this series that I totally binged had a very cool feel to it. I am, however, babbling, but regardless. MAGIC. AND COOL FEELS.

I loved Circle of Jinn for many reasons, that despite so much happening, this book has this slow undercurrent of anticipation that I can't really explain, but despite everything not going 'Bang-Bang' all the time, it ALWAYS, always left you anticipating more, in that skin tingling, edge of your seat kind of way. Lori Goldstein's writing is exceptional, magical and will leave you spell bound and hungry for more. 
In Circle of Jinn, the the character development was SO much more well-rounded and Lori's writing make you get more and more attached to the completely lifelike fictional characters she has created. 

A beautifully written book I cannot recommend more!

Too much of my day involves chatting books, obsessing over The Vampire Diaries, and perfecting the art of efficient writing through Twitter. Find me at @loriagoldstein and follow my blog at, my Tumblr at, or my Instagram at
