Red Queen.


Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
5 out of 5 stars.

Red Queen was such a fantastic book! I loved it so much and I got through it pretty quickly! It was great from beginning to end and it kept my interest and attention throughout the entire book. I loved the whole concept of the book and idea between the Silvers having these special powers. There so many different powers and it was pretty crazy and cool. Mare was a really great character and I loved her so much. I was kind of off and on with my feelings about Maven and Cal. There were a lot of twists and turns, which was great. I’m still so shocked at how the book turned out! It made me so angry at times, because I had no clue what was going to happen and what happened definitely made me angry. I was pretty much saying “what?” “are you kidding me?” “noooo” throughout. Ahhhhh! I was just so shocked! I definitely recommend that you read Red Queen if you haven’t already. It’s a really awesome book and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed! I am so excited to see how this plays out in future books! I am dying for more!

Here were my feelings throughout the book…






Goodreads Description: The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers. To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change. Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the center of those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control. But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Do you prefer Hardcover, Trade Paperback, or Mass Market Paperback? Why?

I’m currently reading…

Since I finished Throne of Glass (you can check out my post on it over here), I decided to draw a book from my book jar (bowl). The book that I got was…

I am excited that this was the book drawn, because I’ve been really wanting to read it. I bought it back in March and never got around to it yet.  I can also use this book for one of the Popsugar challenge topics, so that’s cool too. Random: my nails are red too, so it was pretty perfect. 😛 I’ve read a few chapters last night and so far I like it. I can’t really say much about it yet, since I’m only 25 pages in. So far though, it’s fine.

As far as my book jar goes, I decided that I would allow myself to draw a second book IF I am not into the book that I drew first. I will have to read one of the two that were drawn and no other draws. The other will go back into the jar once I finish one of them. I don’t think I will be making a second draw for this time around, because I have a feeling I will really like Red Queen. Hopefully this book jar helps with not buying book as much (maybe 😛 ), get through the books I own, and to help better choose what to read next, because we all know that is a hard decision!

I am also currently listening to Talon by Julie Kagawa as my audiobook at work. I started it the end of last week and so far it’s interesting and I like it.


This week’s random question is: Do you prefer Hardcover, Trade Paperback, or Mass Market Paperback? Why?

This is actually kind of a tough question for me, because I love them all. I guess I prefer hardcover more. I go back and forth between though, because hardcovers are so much more money and I sometimes don’t like to spend the extra money on it. It’s so much easier to read a hardcover though, because you’re not worrying about bending the paperback covers or messing up the spine of the book so much. As far as me buying, if I start a series in hardcover, then I will continue in hardcovers. If I start a series in paperback, then I will continue in paperback. I want everything to match and look the same.

What are you currently reading? Which do you prefer more: hardcover or paperbacks? Link me to your post if you’ve done one or answer in the comments! 🙂
