Waiting on Wednesday: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh




****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

My pick this week is:
The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh 
Expected publication: May 12th 2015 by Putnam Juvenile
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.

This was a popular one at TLA this year. The synopsis sucks you in right away. This pretty sounds crazy unique and exciting. I was lucky enough to meet this author and get a copy at TLA. So I will be reading ASAP! 
What are you guys waiting on? Let me know in the comments!
