Shelf Control: The Golem and the Jinni

Shelf Control is a feature where bloggers pick an unread book from our shelves and talk  about it a little. It's supposed to be a Wednesday thing but I have French Movie Mercredi on Wednesdays already, so. Shelf Control is hosted at

Today's selection is  

The Hidden Palace, by Helene Wecker. This is the sequel to her 2013 hit The Golem and the Jinni, about a pair of magical creatures in early 20th century New York City. Think of it as an immigrant novel crossed with fantasy. The Hidden Palace came out in 2021.

How and when I got it:

My copy is a galley and I either picked it up at work or had it sent to me. I don't remember at this point. When I read it and review it I will treat it as something I got for review.

Why I Want to Read It

Because it's the sequel to a book I really enjoyed and I wanted to spend more time with these characters and their adventures. My husband read The Golem and The Jinni too and I may have to fight him for it when the time comes.
