Waiting On Wednesday: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard



“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine, and it gives you a chance to spotlight a book that you are eagerly waiting to be released.


This week, I picked:



The Red Queen
By Victoria Aveyard
Publication Date: February 10, 2015

From Goodreads:


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 centre 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?


Why I Picked It:

It sounds like a mixture of Cinderella, meets Graceling, meets The Selection, in a brand new world with twists all of its own. This book looks to be a promising start to a riveting new trilogy.
