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.
From the second I seen this cover I just KNEW I had to read this book!! Then I read the synopsis, and hot dam I was in some serious need of this book!! I never seen 1001 Arabian nights, but I've heard great things about it, and about this book too!

I mean, this right here had me sold. I really didn't have to read anymore then that, because I was already DYING to read it just from these couple sentence below!

Doesn't that make you want to instantly stop what you're reading and read this book?? It did for me, but I only wish I already HAD the book to read it. They have the eARC up on Edelweiss, in which I just discovered it last night. So I requested it, but me and penguin have a love-hate type of relationship, so here's to hoping I get approved. ;)
