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."

Breakfast at noon after a late night of reading.

So I didn't love it. The pacing felt really slow at first. I picked out the rotten characters and assumed the return of another early on and so those scenes, intended to be additional climaxes, but fell short for me. I didn't dislike it enough to quit reading but don't plan to continue with the series.

Prefer teen dystopian The Selection series by Kiera Cass instead.

A would have liked a little more world building and then the comparisons to Hunger Games & Handmaid‘s Tale would be more apt. Still...I will continue with the series. I want to see what comes next.

Spoilers in the comments.

Melismatic Was anyone surprised that Mavin was the villain? Or that Shade was still alive? Bc it felt very obvious to me. 😭🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo

I plan to jump back to my waiting stack of hardcovers in my TBR soon but this was available with no wait so...

I like it so far — the protagonist doesn‘t seem like a wet blanket and it feels very Hunger Games meets Blood & Bone meets Girls of Paper/Fire.

First book for #24B42020 finished.

I enjoyed it. I've read better YA similar to this story, but the characters are interesting and the action keeps the story moving. I'll pick the next one up in the series at some point.

It's 72 degrees today here in Texas, all the windows are open in the house, and I'm trapped under a sleeping puppy, so I'll just keep on reading the tagged book while she snores away. 😁

I've gotten 7.5 hours so far for #24b42020 and hoping to read for a few more hours before life pulls me away.

Lots of people recommended this series to me and so far I'm enjoying it.

Scochrane26 I got bored during the 2nd book & didn‘t finish the series (I did skim the end of the last one so I knew how the romance ended). I think it was because i audiobooked the 2nd one & picked up on repeated statements (talking about the same feelings multiple times, etc) that are often in ya. Maybe I‘ll try the 3rd at some point. 2mo

Genre: Young Adult Fiction

Started: October 2, 2019
Finished: October 9, 2019

Summary: In this world, people are divided by blood. Those with silver blood are more superior and have special abilities. Those with red blood are often peasants working under the silvers.

Why I chose this book?: I read this book about a year ago and it was very entertaining book so I decided to re-read it. The plot is really interesting and unique.

🎧 it took me SO long to finish this book! It‘s not my genre & I‘ve been distracted with work ... I didn‘t want to like it but I did. It had a YA trope or two but they were easily overlooked. Great book! I highly recommend it! Good conflict, not much teen romance, royals vs the peasants where the royals are pretty much cowards with supernatural powers. A war is sustained by the ruling class enlisting the common class. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

I thought it was going to be the “classic” plot of a dystopia of discrimination based on X characteristic (this time, blood color), and inequality... I was actually even “predicting” the end of the book and BAM I was caught off guard 😱
Without realizing it, I finished the book in a few days, and I couldn‘t put it down!
I‘ll definitely continue reading the saga... :)

Genre: Young adult fiction
Date Started: Sometime in September 2017
Date Completed: October 25, 2017
How did you choose this book: It was recommended to me by my LA teacher at my previous school.
Write a brief summary of the novel: The book revolves around a protagonist named Mare Barrow. She found out that she had powers she didn't know she could possess. This discovery turned her seemingly normal life into a complicated one full of surprises.

Just completed the red queen saga. I don't find any option of reviewing the whole saga, so, I review them individually. This goes on a thought that we all are 'seperated' by many things like religion, race, caste and many other. But we all are same to the blood. But what if we are different even in blood? It might just be an addition to all others, but will it really be?
The book must be held until the pace picks up and it worth it.

This series seems to follow the basic structure of The Hunger Games—strong female heroine, dystopian future divided into the elite and wealthy and the oppressed underclass, complicated love interests. That being said, I could not put this book down. Its characters are compelling and human, the plot pulls you, and the story itself is captivating.

Our hatred for Maven.
I don‘t need to be a whisper to know we share a thought.

On Goodreads, I found a list of books with characters who have superpowers. These all look really good. I haven‘t read them. I thought the book Red Queen was an Alice In Wonderland retelling but I just looked it up online and it‘s not. On Amazon, it says,”Red Queen, by #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Aveyard, is a sweeping tale of power, intrigue, and betrayal, perfect for fans of George R.R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones series.”

Re-read to finish the series. This, to me, is not a 5 star read. It‘s not really even a 3 star read. And yet, it‘s like a good Beatles song - there‘s something in the way she moves ... even if she‘s getting by with a lot of help from her Selection/Divergent sampling friends!

The concept wasn‘t original (think Hunger Games, Divergent, Shatter Me, The Selection, Legend, GOT), the storyline was predictable yet this one still managed to be enjoyable. Reader beware, if you aren‘t a fan of book series, especially those that end with cliffhangers, you may want to pass. I enjoyed it enough that I will continue on.

The narration by Amanda Dolan was enjoyable
