So, starting July 1st, we will be reading Renée Ahdieh’s The Wrath & the Dawn, a re-telling of A Thousand and One Nights. Here’s the blurb via Goodreads:
Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi’s wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch . . . she’s falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend.
She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all.
Can’t wait to get started with you all! Don’t forget that our next check-in for Melissa Grey’s The Girl at Midnight is this Saturday. Be sure that you’ve read through chapter 40 and that you’re ready to discuss.
See you all then!
