Red Rising
Red Rising | Pierce Brown
The Earth is dying. Darrow is a Red, a miner in the interior of Mars. His mission is to extract enough precious elements to one day tame the surface of the planet and allow humans to live on it. The Reds are humanity's last hope. Or so it appears, until the day Darrow discovers it's all al lie. That Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations, by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. A class of people who look down on Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought. Until the day that Darrow, with the help of a mysterious group of rebels, disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their command school, intent on taking down his oppressors from the inside. But the command school is a battlefield - and Darrow isn't the only student with an agenda.Break the chains. Live for more.

The moment I spotted Red Rising on one of our student worker's desk and it led to a great chat about contemporary vs classic, how it's ok to not enjoy Tolkien's writing, the diverging threads of the Enderverse, and good ideas vs good execution in books. Wrapped up by dropping recs of Dark Matter and Vicious because those are my ultimate go-to titles, this day is a SUCCESS!

DGRachel I love Vicious! 2w
BookFreakOut @DGRachel Me tooooo!!! Everybody I've ever told about those two has loved them, I gave him my very best recs in the hopes that he asks for more titles in the future! #booksfordays 😄 2w

I'm loving my reread of Red Rising. It is so gorydamn thrilling. Plus Dillon is reading Iron Gold right now, so I can talk his ear off about it all. It has been insanely hot here in Alaska (according to Alaskans). We have been seeking some cool air where ever we can get it- today on Dolly Varden Lake. #teacheroflitsy #YA #summervacation #alaska #heatwave #dogsoflitsy #atleastimnotinafrysuit

I liked this book but didn‘t love it. A little too graphic for me. Reminded me a lot of Hunger Games. I probably won‘t read further. Still, it‘s a good book if this type hits your fancy.

Darrow is the best protagonist I‘ve met in a long while. I love him. Red Rising is tough in a way that authors usually shy away from. I came into this 100% blind and bought the ebook because of positive reviews. As soon as I finish writing this I‘m getting the rest of the series. Pretty sure this will be on my favorite series ever list.

Finished the first part of the Red Rising trilogy, which was a reread for me, as I seek to read all three parts of the Red Rising Trilogy. A very enjoyable read, and I feel I picked up much more on this occasion, than during my first read of the book. Now keen to quickly continue with the trilogy. If you enjoy fantasy or dystopian books I strongly recommend reading this one.

BookaholicNatty I just re-read this myself a few weeks ago and am now close to finishing Morning Star! I have completely fell in love with these books all over again! So good! 1mo

Didn't care for the first part, but picked up and part 1 was needed for the rest. Ends up being part Enders Game, part Hunger Games, part Gattaca.

Good if you like action combined with mild political intrigue and are okay with a matrix-y infodump providing most of the larger world context.

Strong dislike for just killing a female character as a way of driving the male lead. She was less character, more plot device and was disappointing to read.

My reread of this proved to be better than the first time I read it! The audiobook wasn‘t going fast enough for me so I pulled out my paperback and finished the book this morning! I‘m looking forward to finishing this series now that I have had a refresher. What will happen to Darrow, Mustang, Cassius, Sevro, The Sons of Ares, Darrow‘s Family.So many questions. I think this would make a good TV series, wonder if that will ever happen!? #SeriesRead

I have been listening to Red Rising on audio as a refresher since it‘s been awhile since I last read it and there is so many things I had forgotten, like Titus and Sevro. I also forgot how much I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I‘m looking forward to reading the rest of the series! Pierce brown is an amazing author(and also very cute😂)! Are there any other Red Rising lovers? If you haven‘t read this and enjoy sci-fi, check this out!

Dragon Enjoyed the trilogy 👍 2mo
DGRachel I enjoyed the original trilogy more than Iron Gold. I didn‘t care for the shift to multiple perspectives, but I understand why Pierce did it. I can‘t wait for Dark Age in July, but if it‘s anything like Golden Son, it is going to shred my heart. Golden Son is still my favorite of the four published and it was such an emotional read, I nearly threw the book across the room when I finished. Enjoy!! (Just be sure to have Morning Star ready after GS) 2mo
Addison_Reads I loved this trilogy and recommend it all the time to sci-fi fans. Iron Gold was boring to me, but the original 3 are excellent. Enjoy💜 2mo

One of my 2019 reading goals is to finish books in a series that I have already started. I enjoyed the first book of this series so much!!! I‘m relistening to it on audio before I move on to book #2 because I know there is a lot that I have already forgotten. If you are into sci-fi you will love this. What series have you started that you need to finish?? I love a good series so fill me in on your favorites! #SeriesRead

Leniverse I'm currently finishing Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy. I took a long break after the second book, both because the series is really heavy on the science, and because I was terrified that it would all go wrong in the final book and I needed to pause while I still had hope for humanity. Almost done with the final book now, and I still have hope! Love this series and want to move to Mars. 😅 2mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag I‘m a series grinch these days - often I‘m interested in the premise of a book but end up striking it off my tbr when I find out it‘s part of a series 😐 that said, I‘m still keeping up with Jim Butcher‘s The Dresden Files (which has been easy as he hasn‘t released anything for 4 or so years now), Alan Bradley‘s Flavia de Luce series and most recently fell in love with Alyssa Day‘s Tiger‘s Eye Mysteries and Ilona Andrews Innkeeper Chronicles... (edited) 2mo
BookishBelle I started Nevada Barr‘s Anna Pigeon series last year. I‘m reading the third one now. I‘m somewhere in the middle of Janet Evanovich‘s Stephanie Plum series. I need to get back to those. I‘d like to get back to The Dresden Files that @thegirlwiththelibrarybag mentioned. I read the first few probably ten years ago and really liked them but haven‘t gotten back to them. 2mo

I got my hands on this one due to the fact that it showed up via happenstance on Litsy. It's got mixed reviews, they lean more towards good. So far I'm really into it. It does give off a Hunger Games Fanfic feel to it, I hope this one doesn't turn in to a carbon copy like The Mars Room did with OITNB. I will say, while I understand the dialogue I wish it wasn't so redundant. Seems every character opens their mouth and it's the same one talking.
