The Stardust Thief
The Stardust Thief | Chelsea Abdullah
Inspired by stories from One Thousand and One Nights, this book weaves together the gripping tale of a legendary smuggler, a cowardly prince, and a dangerous quest across the desert to find a legendary, magical lamp. Neither here nor there, but long ago . . . Loulie al-Nazari is the Midnight Merchant: a criminal who, with the help of her jinn bodyguard, hunts and sells illegal magic. When she saves the life of a cowardly prince, she draws the attention of his powerful father, the sultan, who blackmails her into finding an ancient lamp that has the power to revive the barren landat the cost of sacrificing all jinn. With no choice but to obey or be executed, Loulie journeys with the sultan's oldest son to find the artifact. Aided by her bodyguard, who has secrets of his own, they must survive ghoul attacks, outwit a vengeful jinn queen, and confront a malicious killer from Loulie's past. And, in a world where story is reality and illusion is truth, Loulie will discover that everythingher enemy, her magic, even her own pastis not what it seems, and she must decide who she will become in this new reality.

I really loved this retelling of One Thousand & One Nights. Loulie along with her bodyguard/jinn Qadir are hired by the Sultan to find a magic lamp 🧞

Amazing epic fantasy inspired by 1001 Nights. Though it is a retelling, I never knew what was going to happen next. (I thought I did but I was so wrong). Chelsea Abdullah had a way of taking the original narratives and making it into her own tale that evaluated morality and what that means.

KateReadsYA Oooo this sounds good 🤩 4w

My favorite book so far this year. I was a little hesitant since fantasy isn‘t my normal pick, but I was intrigued by the idea of a magical tale that was outside of the norm. I love this story. It‘s a book I‘m sure to read again.

TheSpineView I have this book, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Need to move it up on my TBR list. 4w
JennO1 Hope you like it as much as I did! 4w

Listening to The Stardust Thief and working on my cross-stitching. It is coming along nicely, and the book has been really good so far.

Great retelling of the search for the magic lamp. Jinns and humans travel to find the lamp to revenge the sultan.

I'm taking a staycation this week and starting it right with a lovely book on a gorgeous morning. And look, the crepe myrtle is finally blooming again! I was worried it wouldn't after it was butchered by the landlord's landscapers, but it is thriving again.

Twainy @KristiAhlers I saw a purple one that I liked but it was a subscription box. I don‘t have a lot of orange books so the choice was easy 😁 1mo

Mehso-so

Not a fan of fantasy.

I feel like it‘s always the following:
1. Need to save something/someone/somewhere OR Go on a Quest
2. Something magical and dangerous happens and everyone barely escapes with their life
3. Repeat until the end of the book/series

Starting this one from #BOTM. I don‘t read Fantasy at all but when I heard this book had Jinns and Golems, I thought I‘d give it a try.

This is book 1 in a trilogy and I must say this series is off to a solid start. There are shades of One Thousand and One Nights. Full of world building and magic, vengeful jinn queen and two people forced to work together to survive. This ends with a cliffhanger and I‘m looking forward to the next book. #bigjunereadathon @Clwojick

Clwojick You are crushing it! 2mo
KristiAhlers @Clwojick I‘m sitting in a hospital room with my dad as he is being treated for CHF and pneumonia. Not much to do but read. Today I got to read and listen to him complain about being bored. So I‘m hoping this means he‘s on the mend. 😄 (edited) 2mo
Clwojick @KristiAhlers Gosh, I‘m sorry. Hope he starts feeling better soon. Let him know he‘s in our thoughts, and that I‘m sending non boring, totally fun healing vibes his way. 💙 2mo
KristiAhlers @Clwojick I love it! 😄 I‘ll let him know! Thank you 💙 2mo

Twainy I ordered this book from Waterstones, exclusive edition. Can‘t wait for your review. … I liked the improbable Last Flight so I got The Lies I Tell for my June box. 2mo
Traci1 @Twainy I didn't realize that Lies I Tell had the same author as Last Flight. I liked that one a lot.. 2mo

WHOO HOO! BOOK OF THE MONTH CHOICES ARE OFFICIALLY UP!!! 🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉

Here are my picks! Kind of bummed the new Riley Sager book wasn't an option, but I chose two other thrillers instead and of course the fantasy book! 😺💕📚 What is everyone else getting? #botm

Twainy These are the 3 I would have gotten. 2mo
vivastory I wish the Sager had been included, but I'm guessing it will be in the July box 2mo
Branwen @vivastory I was really disappointed about Sager! All his other books have been botm choices in the past! I hope you're right and that we'll see it for July! 2mo
