Book Traveling Thursdays: Favorite Book Read in 2015

Wrath and the Dawn Italian CoverBook Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week’s theme is not so much a theme as much as it’s a conscious choice. Seeing as it’s the last day of 2015 (Already? But how?) today’s Book Traveling Thursday topic is the number one book you read this year.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I loved loved loved The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, which is a beautifully written and incredibly romantic retelling of The Arabian Nights.

Romantic? It’s a story about a man who murders his wives! I know, just trust me.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell is incredibly smart and was a close second, but I absolutely devoured The Wrath and the Dawn, earning it its spot at the top of my 2015 reads.

Have you read it yet? No? Read it! Read it! Read it! Read it!

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.
