Book Traveling Thursday – For the 1st Time

168709Hey everyone & happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t counting down the hours. Ringing in the New Year was fun and all but work kicked my butt this week. Any way, I’ve been seeing the Book Traveling Thursday meme around since I started blogging and I figured it was time to give it a go.

Book Traveling Thursday is a weekly meme created by Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog & Catia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much. The themes are announced over on the Goodreads group page. The concept is simple, every week you have to pick a book that fits the theme of the week, explain why your chosen book fits the theme, look at covers from multiple editions and multiple countries for the book you chose, and finally, include pictures of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover.

wrathGoodreads Book Description:

One Life to One Dawn.

In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.

Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last. But something she never expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she’d imagined him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid’s life as retribution for the many lives he’s stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?
