Waiting on Wednesday (#74) - The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh


 Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine
 The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)
Goodreads Summary:
A sumptuous and epically told love story inspired by A Thousand and One Nights

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.

Why I'm Waiting For It: This cover is amazing! I love the cutout and the color is really eye-catching! Besides that, the plot of the whole books sounds great. 

The killer/murder/marry aspect of the book is definitely interesting and unique and I'm totally digging these character names! Crossing my fingers this one turns out good :)

The Wrath and Dawn will hit shelves on May 12, 2015 from Putnam Juvenile
