TBR, Which Book is Next?

Since I have ย finished Looking for Alaska and had posted up theย Reviewย earlier in the week, I haven’t picked up another book. Its been a very fast week since Monday was a national holiday, but also very stressful with work.

All I’ve truly wanted to do was sleep in, with the AC turned to a very low temperature because NYC was just getting its usual wave of humidity.

I was looking through my TBR list which is ย always changing cause there are just many great books in the world waiting to be picked up!

6: Glass Sword – V.Aveyard

This is also a sequel book, to Red Queen. Mare must lead the Scarlet Squad to find others like her before Maven gets to them in the fight for equality between the Red and Silver Bloods.

Glass Sword is a book I’d really like read next but I’m doing a delayed tactic since King’s Cage, the third book in the series is going on sale in January 2017.

Its been forever since I’ve read a Sarah Dessen book so maybe I’ll read this first?

What do you guys think?

King’s Cage will be release next year, February 2017 and I don’t think I can wait. I’m very excited!

A post of myย Review : Red Queenย is available for my thoughts on the book and what the book is about. I had some points that I believe will be addressed in King’s Cage; there is supposed to be varied POV in it.

Please check back again for my thoughts on how the book is when I begin to read it and after when I have a review up.

Review : Red Queen

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

An EpicReads book
Rated : โคโคโคโค

Honestly, I’ve completed this book for about 3 days before composing this review. I have mixed feelings about this book Aveyard and I’m hoping some of my issue could be taken very seriously in the next installments of this series.*crosses finger *

Red Queen is about a girl, Mare living in a dystopian world. The people are segragated by blood. There are the elite and powerful with Silver blood and there are the paupers and lowly with red blood in their veins.Silvers have abilities, like telekinesis, mind reading, nymphs and so fort while Reds do not. This enables the segregation to be effective in show of powers.

Mare is a red blood. She is bitter, (whiny) and disheartened. She hates the Silvers because they take everything away from the Reds and make them suffer. Due to an accident in the palace during a show (an auctioning of type), the Silvers found that she possed an ability that belongs only to the Silvers. Now they were forced to cover up the anomaly and Mare had to pretend to be like the Silvers.

With her position and power, Mare joins the rebel group, Scarlet Guard, who are seeking justice and equality for all people. Her fight for equality consumes Mare and those all around her in a way that makes you wonder who’s on who’s side?

I truly love this story concept and the twist and turns that Aveyard took us through. There was many times this could have been like any dystopian novel we’ve all read before but she kept us in suspence until the last page was turned.

The beginning of the novel was very slow paced and I found myself almost giving up! It wasn’t until later I totally couldn’t put the book down! I’d advice if you had this problem, go back and shoulder through it. Its totally worth… To a point (at least for me).

Mare made this book quite difficult for me to like. I’m usually a go for strong, opinionated characters but she was very bitter. It cloaked the whole book and made me very distrustful of her voice as the narrator. I think this book should have been in third person narrator. Honestly, she was strong yet weak, a great flaw yet important for a protagonist of a dystopian novel. But she was very uncaring for other peoples wellbeing, especially if they were not beneficial to her. I know her attitude was needed to show how much struggles the Silvers put the Reds through, but I couldn’t help but feel that she needed to tone it down a bit. She didn’t have any remorse for the others who suffered if they were not Reds and her action makes me wonder what will happen if she did have totall control over the Silvers.

There are many love stories in this book, it made an unsual love square. It was intriguing but a tad too much. One of the love stories was obvious to me as it wasn’t to Mare that she was way over her head but it added to the great work Red Queen came to be. Another love story should be shelved off and progress towards another girl in the book.

I’m rooting for Mare and Cal all the way. I think they balanced each other well and Mare just has some growing up to do.

I gave this book only 4 โค because of how I feel about Mare and her attitude in general. She should want a revolution in a better way but I’m almost too afraid to see her in complete power mode. She seemed like she would like ittoo much!

I’m looking forward to reading the sequel, Glass Sword !

**I tried really hard not to give away any spoilers, especially with the love square but I’m sure you could guess which was which once you’ve read the book!***
