I was hoping to love it but found that I couldn’t. Shahrzad was a cool character, but I did not understand the romance dynamic at all. Neither boys seemed appealing whatsoever and the ending was more confusing than cliff-hanger-y. I highly doubt I’ll read the sequel. ( )

“Love is a force unto itself sayyidi. For love, people consider the unthinkable…. and often achieve the impossible. I would not sneer at its power.”

I grew up watching Alif Laila on TV. Watched and heard different stories from Arabian Nights like Sindbad, Alibaba, Aladdin etc. What I didn’t know initially was that all of them originated from 1001 Nights. And I definitely didn’t know that it still fascinated readers after all this time. So, when I heard about this new reimagining of the tale(s) that is so highly rated, I decided to pick it up.

“Give him the love that will enable him to see it for himself. To a lost soul, such a treasure is worth its weight in gold. Worth its weight in dreams.”

This book follows Shahrzad, who volunteered to marry the caliph Khalid to exact revenge for the murder of her best friend Shiva. Shiva’s cousin and Shazi’s first love Tariq decides to kill the caliph himself to get her back and starts gathering forces from like-minded nobles and supporters. Shazi’s father Jalandar turns to dark magic to find the strength to get his daughter back and become powerful. And then the unthinkable happens; Khalid and Shazi fall in love.

“I know Love is fragile. And loving someone like you is near impossible. Like holding something shattered through a raging sandstorm. If you want her to love you, shelter her from that storm. And make certain that storm isn’t you.”

I really thought I had outgrown romance novels. Even though this story has some mystery, fantasy and magical elements, it’s heart is a love story. So, I didn’t expect to really love it. But surprise surprise!!!! I did. I fell in love with both of them – the boy king pretending to be a monster and the girl who can’t stop herself from falling for him. Even though she seems vulnerable in love, Shazi is a very strong young girl – equal parts fierce, stubborn, determined and so full of love. Khalid is a ruthless king but also a boy who just needs love – this paradox is captured very well. Jalal and Despina are wonderfully written supporting characters and their flirty and playful natures bring much humor amidst all the angst. But the best part of this book are the words themselves. The writing is beautiful and captivating throughout – the descriptions of the palace, the lavish clothes and jewelry, the smells of the food, Khalid’s letters full of his unspoken feelings, Shazi’s inner turmoil – all the words are vivid and rich and soulful. I fell in love with the characters because of this exquisite writing. And finally, these same beautiful words broke my heart…..

“For nothing, not the sun, not the rain, not even the brightest star in the darkest sky, could begin to compare to the wonder of you.” ( )

Blog Review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2021/01/01/my-december-in-bo...

This is more of a 4.5.

This book. I enjoyed it way more than I expected to.

This book really surprised me. I actually first started with the audiobook for this, but I've got to say the narration for that was horrible. No offense to the narrator or publishing company, but maybe when narrating a book with words from a language that is not english and definitely needs a different accent for certain words, just take a narrator who speaks in that language? Or can maybe do that accent?

Because the narrator was American, or maybe British (can't remember), and the way she was saying the words that were Urdu/Arabic was just wrong and really getting on my nerves.

And so I switched to the ebook. And my reading experience improved dramatically.

I love the Thousand and One Arabian Nights stories though I think I've only read some of them...and I used to love that show on Discovery Kids but that's a separate matter. And the things that maybe disappointed me in this book was the lack of the actual stories she was supposed to be telling.. and also to length of the stories that she was telling....how early does sunrise happen here anyway?

Those stories can't have taken more than half an hour to get through and you can't tell me they had sex for like hours because that was obviously not the case and that brings up the question of how late was the guy coming to her chambers anyway.

Another thing that bothered me about this book was the sex on the first two days. And why I liked that this book included something like that is that it raised the question in my head as to what exactly qualifies as consent.

If you ask anyone what consent is, and how it's usually approached in books, I think the answer is that both or more parties want to have sex. They willingly approach the other parties involved and the other parties involved also want to have sex. And that is what I thought qualified as consensual sex.

But in this book since we were in Shazi's POV we see that she doesn't really want to have sex. She wants to seduce the guy so she can have her revenge yes but did that invitation count as consent? I don't know.

Also the guy never had sex with any other of his wives so that was just plain weird and all. And then when we see that the guy doesn't seem particularly eager to have sex either it gets really confusing whether it's consensual because the only reason they're having sex is because she literally threw herself on him. And he wanted that.

Where this gets infinitely more confusing is when it happens again on the second night. And this time it seems even less consensual but not exactly? And maybe what I wanted to achieve from this really long essay was to communicate that consent is confusing. And it shouldn't be.

Once we move on from that and the insta-love that this then incorporates, this book got amazing. It got much better than I had expected and the romance got beautiful and I had so many changes of heart that I was devastated by the end of this book.

Once we move on from the romance there really isn't much left in this and I was liking it for that. I didn't particularly want anything else because I was really enjoying the romance.

And that is why I hated the Tariq-trying-to-save-her subplot and the her-father-doing-whatever-the-hell-he-was-trying-to-do sideplot and that other-father-manipulating-him subplot and the trying-to overthrow-the-kingdom subplot in this.

I really believe I would have liked this more as a standalone novel than a series but I will still be reading the next book. Because I need to know what happens next.

I liked it and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good enemies-to-lovers, slightly questionable actions by love interests, does not mind side plots that fell unnecessart and slightly stupid love triangles that aren't exactly love triangles. I mean, it's pretty obvious who she actually wants and I can so get onboard one of those kinds! ( )
