Red Queen
Red Queen | Victoria Aveyard
This is a world divided by blood - red or silver.The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.Fearful of Mare's potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance - Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart . . .

🎧 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 had this pegged as another violent, angsty bleak YA, but I ended up really enjoying it. I found Mare really likeable and the plot was gripping and kept me guessing. I‘ll be back for the next books. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

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.

So, today is a deadline of a SUPER big project. From my part, it is done,ready,and perfect. No need hassle over it anymore. But I just can't stop to worry about it. Perhaps it's time for the most luxurous distraction that I have been denying myself for few weeks: reality escape with this ^

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.

Storia avvincente, un bel fantasy che si fa leggere tutto d‘un fiato. La protagonista è ben descritta e la storia è raccontata nei dettagli.
Mi son piaciuti particolarmente i personaggi e le relazioni tra essi.

Our shared memories flash before me, parading every second of our time together. But now our friendship is gone, replaced by the one thing we still have in common.
Our hatred for Maven.
I don‘t need to be a whisper to know we share a thought.
I will kill him.

Ahh! I finally completed it. I'm so loving this series. Although, it pains me to know that sweet Maven turned out to be the villain and Lucas died.😭

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.”

LibrarianRyan I've Read the Young elites and really liked it. It took a bit to get into, but once it stats moving it goes. 4mo

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!

This was my first Book Club book for my new Tennessee book club. It wasn't too bad.

I enjoyed this book! I feel as though it may have been suited for a younger crowd, but it was intriguing and held my attention very well. I would recommend this book for anyone who likes fantasy, and romance with a twist...

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

Powered_By_Plants Ooh I‘m constantly searching for a series that will match up to the hunger Games and just come across this 🥰 4mo

This book was definitely a mix of the selection, game of thrones, and hunger games. There‘s very much a twist when you don‘t expect it. I‘m looking forward to reading the next book of the series.

I was excited to read this book! It captured my interest immediately, and kept me captivated the entire time. Usually I get to a point in a book where I need to force myself to keep reading, to get to the more exciting parts of the story - usually around the beginning/middle, but that was not the case with this book.

I‘ve already bought the second one and can‘t wait to dive in to the next part of this story!

I finished this one today on the ride home. I have the hardcover, but opted to listen to the #audiobook since it was so cheap on iBooks. Overall I enjoyed it and may pick up the second book in the series. It was also a nice distraction from the 6 1/2 hour drives I did Friday and today.

Rereading the Red Queen! I read it way back in 2016, but life got in the way of me reading the second book that had just come out. Needless to say, I‘m so excited to finally read the entire series now that they are all out!

#AnglophileApril Day 7: #TaintedLove reminded me of this story of “tainted royalty.” Like most protagonists in fantasy novels, Mare does not seem to fit in as she eventually appeared to be neither Red nor Silver. While I generally like characters who are ambiguous and find themselves in the in-between, I did not particularly like Mare‘s character whom I thought of as resentful and small-minded. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-b5p

This was my #blinddatewithabook pick from Valentine‘s day. I was initially disappointed since I don‘t really do teen or fantasy.

BUT, I was was pleasantly surprised. I was riveted. I found myself rooting for Mare and trying to figure out her love triangle. And I did not predict that ending.

Looks like I need to get my hands on the rest of the series. 😀
