Red Queen (International)
Red Queen (International) | Victoria Aveyard
Mare Barrow s world is divided by blood those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but a twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers an ability she didn t know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince and Mare against her own heart.From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal."

Though not the most original story, the millennial quippy-ness (at one particular line I even paused the the audiobook to look up the age of the author) and the pace of the story kept me engaged throughout. Overall, Red Queen was a great way to occupy my mind while I worked and commuted, and I‘ll be following it up with the sequels.

This was a re-read, but I finally have all 4 books, and I forget what happens in the first 2.
The storyline is so good, though, that I didn't mind reading it a second time at all.

1. I totally want to be friends with Patricia Briggs and Darynda Jones.

2. All sorts of places. Litsy primarily, but also book e-newsletters, Goodreads, IG, friends, just browsing bookstores or the library

3. I‘m not sure it‘s completely unpredictable, but there‘s a good twist in the tagged‘s plot.

Eggs Thanks for the rec and for playing!! 3mo

The Red Queen series is fantastic, and I love it not only because it's great, but also because it made me fall in love with Victoria Aveyard as a writer! 😍❤️📚

Why does YA for girls ALWAYS have a "romance", granted this was written less boy crazy from others but still, boy YA books don't have these themes ?. Anywho...pretty predictable so not sure if I'll continue with the series. Really only read it because my niece recommended and now she's busy with school so we couldn't "book club"... BOO

I had to DNF this book because I found that I wasn‘t motivated enough to finish it. Plus there were other books that I wanted to read instead. What I read of this book I though it was just alright. Rating: 3 ⭐️

This book really moves! It surprised me quite a few times. I could not put it down. Finished it in two days. 🤣 Can't wait to start the next. Thinking of reading the novellas here before starting Glass Sword. I was advised not to start with them even though they are a prequel.

This was a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me. I‘m beginning to think though that this is simply not an author for me. There were moments this story seemed to drag. Although I enjoyed it I won‘t continue the series. #100readschallenge #readingchallenge2022

I don't know why so many people hated this book--I loved it. It had all the elements of a good dytopia with some major plot twists. I didn't like the love triangle though, bleh. Love quadrant? Speaking of which, Kilorn is totally Gale. Anyway, can't wait to read the next book.

I cannot put into words the way this book made me feel. I‘m not exaggerating AT ALL when i say that the plot twist made me have to stop reading and go take a walk before i started to rip the book. Maven, the shadow of the flame, my all-time favourite fantasy character ever, betrayed Mare (the main character). RIGHT AFTER i developed an emotional attachment to him. He didn‘t just betray Mare, he betrayed every reader who believed he could change.

Book that #BeginsWith #Red Day 5: As I was reading the book, I kept thinking that I am already familiar with this kind of narrative, except that it has been written better and more cohesively-presented in other stories. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-b5p

This was one of those books where you stay up later then you‘d like to to finish it. For a short time in the early middle, I thought it was pretty boring. But then, the plot picked up and I couldn‘t put it down. 5⭐️

persephone1408 I had a hard time putting all of them down...but I had an audio book with the 3rd one so I listened literally ALL THE TIME! By the last one I read non stop until I finished lol 1y

I don‘t know if the twists in Red Queen or American Gods counts as jaw dropping, but both had a plot twist. (Although in the case of Red Queen, the title might give it away.) but these are the two I thought of as I don‘t read thrillers where you get the OMG! kind of plot twists.

MidnightBookGirl These definitely count! Although Red Queen still sits upon my TBR piles. Love that cover of American Gods! 1y

I think I enjoyed this way more than I initially thought I would. It got off to a bit of a rough/slow start but by the midway point I was hooked. I did see some of the plot twists coming but that didn't take away from my overall enjoyment. This book reminded me a lot of Red Rising at times which could be why I enjoyed it so much. I was a fun read and I need to get my hands on book two as soon as possible

I said from the beginning that I knew I wasn‘t going to love this book. If it wasn‘t an audiobook that I listened to while doing mindless tasks, I probably wouldn‘t have finished it at all. The sequel is waiting for me but I have no desire to see where this story leads right now. Maybe if I don‘t find another audiobook I‘ll try it out.

KathyWheeler I read this one and thought it was okay, but I have no desire to read the rest of them. 2y

About 2 hours in & I‘m still not sure I‘m going to finish it but I‘ll keep going for now. Since I mostly listen to my audiobooks while driving, sometimes having a book I don‘t need to pay all that much attention to is nice 😅

My biggest issue with this book is the main character. She‘s a cliche trope of the overly independent girl that‘s not stereotypically feminine. I get those characters are supposed to be “empowering” but I find it limiting.

Started RED QUEEN as my new commute audiobook. So far it feels like another stereotypical YA novel of your “average” girl finding out she‘s actually special and ends up in a weird love… pyramid. This might be. DNF for me but I‘ll give it another hour before deciding.

What YA trope are you entirely over seeing?

GondorGirl Love triangles. 🤢 2y
Oryx This was the book that finished me for YA 🙂! I read about a fifth, then nope, I've read this all before. 2y
CollapsingLibrary @GondorGirl yes!! I need like a major twist on the love triangle before I want to see it again. I have no idea what that would look like though 😅😅 2y
CollapsingLibrary @Oryx ugh that‘s how I feel this is going to go for me 😣 which I hate because I think YA is such an important part of people‘s literary journey! 2y

persephone1408 For some reason as I read this 2nd book...in my mind kilorn is Murphy from the 100. Farley is nina zinek from six of crows (shadow and bone) AND Maven is joffrey from game of thrones.🤷🏻🤷🏻 2y

Usually it‘s difficult for me to pick up a new book with a plot I‘ve yet to dive into, but this book, with the characters and their relationships with one another, really took me for a spin. I‘ve come to find that the books with the biggest plot twists are the ones that I can‘t seem to put down!

Finished this today and it wasn‘t my favorite. I picked it up as a similar book to the the Three Dark Crowns series, but it didn‘t quite fit the bill. This one felt predictable in some ways and forced in others. I kept looking at the page numbers to see how far along I was and when I‘d be done. I don‘t plan to continue the series. 3⭐️

This world is separated by the color of blood red has no power and live in harsh controlled conditions, silvers have God like abilitys and live in luxury. Mare barrow a red.
gets into in a dangerous situation , she has power of her own although she had an audience will she survive?
If you like books such the six of crows this book is for you.The author uses a first person perspective It's full of engaging characters, surprises, and romance.

MissYaremcio This book is one of my favorites!! I loved this series! Well done! 6/6 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The writing style wasn‘t my favorite but once the plot picked up after a few chapters I was hooked.
I found the concept of the Red/Silver divide interesting and appreciated the plot twist at the end. Definitely kept me on my toes the last few chapters.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.
