Week 13 – Shelf Pleasure’s 2016 Reading Challenge
This week we’re reading The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh for our personal book club. Inspired by A Thousand and One Nights, this YA saga centers on 16-year-old Shahrzad, the latest bride of her land’s murderous boy king, 18-year-old Khalid. Each new bride of his wakes with a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. Shahrzad is determined to get vengeance for her best friend who was one of his ill fated wives. When she wakes up and finds herself the first to survive through the night, she is shocked to find herself falling in love with the boy who should be her enemy. It’s a beautifully written book we can’t wait to discuss, which is one of the many reasons we love book club–plus the wine, of course!
