Can't-Wait Wednesday - The Henna Wars


 Can't-Wait Wednesday is a feature hosted at Wishful Endings where people showcase an upcoming book they are looking forward to.

This week I am looking forward to . . .



  Title: The Henna Wars (UK paperback)

Author: Adiba Jaigirdar

Pages: 400

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

Release Date: 7th January 2021


Nishat and Flávia are rivals at school, but Nishat can't help the secret crush burning in her heart - even though her parents disapprove of the fact she likes girls. Can she possibly find her happy ever after? A gorgeous, heart-warming, queer YA love story for fans of Becky Albertalli.

When Nishat comes out to her parents, they say she can be anyone she wants - as long as she isn't herself. Because Muslim girls aren't lesbians. Nishat doesn't want to lose her family, but she also doesn't want to hide who she is, which only gets harder once Flávia walks into her life.

Beautiful and charismatic, Flávia takes Nishat's breath away. But as their lives become tangled, they're caught up in a rivalry that gets in the way of any feelings they might have for each other.

Can Nishat find a way to be true to herself... and find love too?





Why I'm Anticipating This Book . . .

 I love a good F/F romance and this sounds really unique and enjoyable.




  1. This does sound good. I can only imagine how hard it would be for a person in Nishat's situation. I am adding this to my own wish list. I hope you enjoy it when you read it!
