waiting on wednesdays- the rose and the dagger

I usually don’t do Waiting on Wednesdays, mostly because I really don’t want to clog my blog up with a bunch of weekly memes, that and I’m too lazy to keep up with them every week, but I had to do one for The Rose & the Dagger!

23308084Book: The Rose & the Dagger

Author: Renee Ahdieh

Published: April 26, 2016

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling

Summary: The much anticipated sequel to the breathtaking The Wrath and the Dawn, lauded by Publishers Weekly as “a potent page-turner of intrigue and romance.”

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.

I can’t remember being this excited for a sequel since Nevermore by Kelly Creagh.. Actually, also after ACOTAR by Sarah J. Maas. That book was so good, I seriously don’t know anyone who isn’t excited for that sequel.

Are you guys excited for The Rose & the Dagger? What are y’all waiting on this Wednesday?

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
