Mine was so exhausting! My dad just had surgery, so I've been tending to him and trying to keep up with my normal activities. It's been so tiresome. That's why, if you've noticed lately, my reviews haven't been coming as much as they use to. But I'm hoping to get back on the ball with everything soon!! :) Anyways, check out this weeks TT and let me know what you think in the comment section and be sure to link me up to your TT or weekly memo so I can come visit you.
(The Wrath and the Dawn #1)
by Renee Ahdieh
Published: May 12th, 2015
Genres: YA, Fantasy, Retellings
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.

One hundred lives for the one you took. One life to one dawn.
Should you fail but a single morn, I shall take from you your dreams. I shall take from you your city.
And I shall take from you these lives, a thousandfold...

She swung a haphazard fist at his face. It caught him in the jaw, and she spun around to bolt. He lunged at her, snagging a shoulder in one hand and the back of her neck in the other.
"I'll kill you for that," he spat in her ear.
"Says a dead man," she rasped.
"Not just yet."
I live in North Carolina (Go Heels!) with my husband Victor and our dog Mushu. My YA fantasy novel, THE WRATH AND THE DAWN, will be published in 2015. In my spare time, I like to cook, dance salsa, and wreak havoc on the lives of my characters.
I’m also a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, as well as an active member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.
