"Not super spicy but good read. Some confusing lango "
"This was a great retelling of 1001 Arabian Nights!<br/><br/>I started this book for my English class and ended up not having to read it anymore which is why it took me some time to finish it. <br/><br/>I recommend this book, the characters are all so unique and special which only makes this book so much better!<br/><br/>Also, I just love Khalid and Shahrzad!"
