Release Day Blitz (Giveaway): The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

So I know I've been talking a lot about All Played Out... but today is more than just the release day for Cora Carmack's new book.

It's also the release day for another one of my most highly anticipated books of spring! You may have seen my swooning in my "Waiting On" Wednesday post a few weeks ago. Well the time has finally come--THE WRATH AND THE DAWN by Renée Ahdieh is finally out!

I'm so insanely excited for this book to finally be released in the world (so that I can stop trying to figure out who I need to kill to get an ARC). I've been heart-eyed over The Wrath and the Dawn since the moment that I first read the synopsis. Eventually, I read the first few pages in a sneak peek and was officially hooked. I'm already a devoted fan of Renée and can't wait to (hopefully) meet her at Bookcon at the end of this month!

In honor of this amazing release day, I have a nice little announcement blog post, as well as a special introduction from Renée herself!

If you haven’t yet heard about this wonderful book by Author Renée Ahdieh, be sure to stay tuned and check out all the details below.

This blitz also includes a giveaway for a signed copies of the book and some beautiful book inspired scarves, courtesy of Renée, Penguin Teen, and Rockstar Book Tours. So if you’d like a chance to win, make sure to enter in the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post.

A letter from Renée Ahdieh

There are not enough words to express how thrilled I am to share THE WRATH AND THE DAWN with you! From the moment I typed the first word, I felt connected to Shahrzad and her world in a way that carried me through the long process of publication to where we are today.

Everything about this process has been a dream come true, and I hope you love my book half as much as I enjoyed writing it. In celebration of release day, I'll be giving away a signed, first edition hardcover of the book, as well as a gorgeous scarf. . . or two!

Always remember to make it a story worthy of you!

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.
