It was pretty good. Re-read this so I would be ready to read the rest of the series.

This book was just okay. Overhyped, but I don't regret reading it.

Review: Red Queen by: Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

*I solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God*

 

Publishing Information: Orion, February  2015

 

Safety Rating: PG-13 (If I remember correctly, a couple of bad words and heavy violence...suggested for ages 13 and up)

 

 

     The one thing that stands out about this book is its similarities to the Hunger Games series by: Suzanne Collins and the Selection series by: Kiera Cass. To me, there isn't anything that stands out as being unique. If you put the Hunger Games and The Selection into the same world this would be it! The only original element would be the use of magic or powers.

     In the beginning I wasn't in love with the love triangle. I thought it was strange and a little cheesy but, in the end it really worked for me! (No spoilers, I promise!)

     If it wasn't for the ending of this book it would not be getting such a high rating but, the ending is what really did it for me! It starts of excruciatingly slow and doesn't pick up till a little over halfway through, I was so close to putting this book down and DNF-ing it. Now I am proud of myself for pushing through! Thanks for reading this review!

 

Yours Truly, signing off!
