description

"The Wrath and the Dawn" is the BOTM of July, for the theme "Fairytale retellings"!
You can find the guidelines here.

Please sign up in this thread, if you want to join the readalong.

The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1) by Renee Ahdieh
The Wrath and the Dawn

So the idea of a 'Book of the month' is sort of a read-along. The BOTM thread (this one) will be for the people who want to do the read-along and share their thoughts after each goal (July 8/9 - I just read till page 40 and my thoughts are .... etc.). Spoilers must be marked of course!

Reading schedule
July 1/7 - Time to get your copies!
July 8/9 - read prologue + until (incl.) chapter 3 ("The veil between")
July 10/11 - read until (incl.) chapter 6 ("Draw weight")
July 12/13 - read until (incl.) chapter 9 ("The beginning is the end")
July 14/15 - read until (incl.) chapter 12 ("A righteous blaze and a restless spirit")
July 16/17 - read until (incl.) chapter 15 ("The promise of tomorrow")
July 18/19 - read until (incl.) chapter 18 ("To inflict a dark wound")
July 20/21 - read until (incl.) chapter 21 ("Mehrdad the bluebearded")
July 22/23 - read until (incl.) chapter 24 ("Two crossed swords")
July 24/25 - read until (incl.) chapter 27 ("A floating carpet and a rising tide")
July 26/27 - read until (incl.) chapter 30 ("Ava")
July 28/29 - read until (incl.) chapter 33 ("Burning embers")
July 30/31 --> Time for more discussion :) This is also the best moment for people who have already read the book before to join in!

(or *[number]) --> in case you have another edition than the main one I used for the schedule, just do this:
1. - Divide your total amount of pages by 11.
2. - Multiply this by the number of the day (which is [number])

Have fun :D

So I'll probably join in halfway the readalong, cause I can't get my copy earlier :(
Should I get the hardcover or the paperback btw? I like them both <3

Both covers are pretty, but if you order it from Amazon, for instance, both the paperback and the hardcover seem to be on sale. So I'd go for the hardcover. It's cheaper than on bookdepository too!

Thanks for the tip, but I checked on amazon and the hardcover isn't on sale :(
I order from amazon.de though (although I live in the Netherlands), so I think it's only on sale on your amazon.
Usually hardcovers are pretty cheap on there (The Hate U Give harcover is currently €4 on there like whattt), but not this one unfortunately...

Oh shoot, sorry should've remembered that. I got the e-mail yesterday, that's why I bought the e-book...

I was checking the .com one, even though I got the e-book from the .es one, I didn't even realize ups (the euro and dollar are pretty close in value right now, soo I'm kinda used to translating one into the other :P)

The .nl one doesn't seem to have a lot of English titles we're bound to want. At least, there is one. There's no amazon.pt for us xD

At the .uk one the paperback is at 6,39 pounds, which is like €7,29 or so? Standard delivery 4pounds + 0.40pounds per kg... Prolly not worth it after all..


Laurel | 9 comments Are we not reading complete chapters at a time?

Lena (lenaluna) | 7 comments I'm going to try to join in! last month went Badly for the Simon vs readalong because I had exams and less free time than I expected but hopefully this month will be good to me!!! I've been wanting to read this for years, I bought it a couple months ago and still haven't gotten to it so this is perfect

@Laurel It's by pages but I read it by chapters. Maybe she can put it by chapters because I also read by chapters as well

@Lena Awww that's too bad. I hope you still liked the book though!


Erica (xtisb) Laurel wrote: "Are we not reading complete chapters at a time?"

I don't run this (Ayla does, so if this isn't allowed, sorry) but I'm sure you could read full chapters (if you're anything like me, I'm not a huge fan of not finishing chapters)

but not discuss any of what you've read ahead to, since even though it's marked in spoilers, the others who aren't reading full chapters may still be spoiled for the things you've read.

The nl. one only has e-books unfortunately... And since I don't own a kindle and prefer physical copies anyways, I order via amazon.de (+ Standard free delivery!).
Thanks for your help though :D

Last readalong I changed it into chapters as well, but I don't own a copy yet, so I can't see how many chapters this one has...
If someone could tell me the amount of chapters, I can change the reading schedule into chapters instead! :)

Hi Lena! Thanks for joining in :)
Can I put you on the list of participants?
How did your exams go by the way?

Sure! :) I used to only get physical copies, but then amazon does give you free e-books and so do some authors I'm subscribed to. So I started getting used to it.
