Waiting on Wednesday *120*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's the pretty I'm waiting on this week:

The Rose & The Dagger by Renée Ahdieh
The Wrath & The Dawn #2
Expected Publication: May 3rd 2016 by Putnam

I am surrounded on all sides by a desert. A guest, in a prison of sand and sun. My family is here. And I do not know whom I can trust.

In a land on the brink of war, Shahrzad has been torn from the love of her husband Khalid, the Caliph of Khorasan. She once believed him a monster, but his secrets revealed a man tormented by guilt and a powerful curse—one that might keep them apart forever. Reunited with her family, who have taken refuge with enemies of Khalid, and Tariq, her childhood sweetheart, she should be happy. But Tariq now commands forces set on destroying Khalid's empire. Shahrzad is almost a prisoner caught between loyalties to people she loves. But she refuses to be a pawn and devises a plan.

While her father, Jahandar, continues to play with magical forces he doesn't yet understand, Shahrzad tries to uncover powers that may lie dormant within her. With the help of a tattered old carpet and a tempestuous but sage young man, Shahrzad will attempt to break the curse and reunite with her one true love.
LOOK AT IT^^ I can not wait to set this gem right next to her sibling and bask in their radiance ♥.♥  Of course, that will only come AFTER I dive into it and return to the gorgeous and enchanted world that Renée Ahdieh has created here! Can't it be May already?! The wait for this one has been long my friends.

Thoughts on my pick?
What are you all waiting on?

  4. Oh yes! I'm looking forward to this one too. I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed the first book. I'm not as fond as this cover, though! It's not bad, but the first one was much better.
