Waiting On Wednesday [@somiayadaud @Flatironbooks]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:

MIRAGE (#1) by Somaiya Daud

In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.

But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.

As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection...because one wrong move could lead to her death.

It's in space and there are royals which has so many possibilities right there. Then our main character is a girl who doesn't fit in and is the evil princess' doppelganger? This book sounds like so much fun (and drama and emotion and awesomeness).!

Oh, but I want to read this one and discover Dihya and about the Vathek empire and meet Amani and find out what happens to her.

You can preview  Mirage on Entertainment Weekly's website, here.

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
