Can’t Wait for Ayesha at Last!

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.


I love retellings of the classics, and this week’s pick takes a Jane Austen favorite and gives it an Indian twist in Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin.

Book description

“A smart young Muslim Canadian woman navigates the complexities of career, love, and family in this lively homage to a Jane Austen classic. “While it is a truth universally acknowledged that a single Muslim man must be in want of a wife, there’s an even greater truth: To his Indian mother, his own inclinations are of secondary importance.” With that nod to Pride and Prejudice firmly in place, Jalaluddin lays the groundwork for a raucous story that mixes a zany cast of characters with a tightly wound plot.”

This time me sounds great. I have a hold on it at the library and I can’t wait!

  1. So fun! I’ve seen this cover around (on Amazon or Goodreads), but didn’t know it had some Austen flair. That’s pretty cool. Hope you enjoy!! Thanks a bunch for visiting Finding Wonderland last week. 🙂
