Wishes, She Roars by Angela Kulig and Angela Sanders
One of my favorite books to read are retellings of any kind. I'm a big fan of fairytales and taking a well-known story and putting it in a new setting makes it so much better. :)
Wishes, She Roars is the retelling of Aladdin's story, as told by the princess Cyra. She lost her parent and her grandfather took over the crown again. She keeps on turning away suitors away, not one keeps her interest until she runs into a boy in a dark alley.
She is not just a princess, her mother passed on a gift, that allows her to esape the castle at any chance.
I liked reading it very much, my favorite thing about it was the princess. I love the way she doesn't take any crap from anyone. She stands up for herself and what she wants. :)

Princess Cyra isn't cursed, and she doesn't need Aladdin's wishes to save her kingdom.
People are starving in Henjanan but in the palace on the mountain, otherworldly parties continue almost every night. In the middle of the crowd, where colorful veiled ladies dance with young lords and whisper lies and secrets, sits a sultan with a devil on his shoulder—The Grand Vizier—who does far worse than a lie, cheat, and kill.
Absent from most of these parties is Princess Cyra al-Budur, who seeks to root out the evil inside her country by whatever means necessary—even if it means never marrying or finding love, even if it means donning claws and fur, even if it means giving up everything she has. She doesn't dare fail.
In the middle of a monsoon, with the world raging around her, a chance meeting with the handsome son of wealthy merchants leaves Cyra attempting to outwit a kind soul.
Aladdin refuses to believe she doesn't need to be saved and tries to prevent the inevitable fallout of wishes three.
Never After Tales is a series of standalone novels, that can be enjoyed in any order!
