‘Red Queen’ by Victoria Aveyard is part of Maximum Pop!’s book club for the month of July – and we are loving it. Full of twists and turns, deception and crashing revelations, this is not a book you will be reading slowly. In fact, you may feel the need to power through it in a night – next day grogginess be damned.
MP!er and book blogger Coleen applied to get her freebie copy of the book so we can see all her thoughts, let’s take a gander shall we?
What did you think of the cover? I thought it was gorgeous. I loved how the Crown was raised, it was a nice touch. Plus, the cover goes well with the story.
After finishing, ‘Red Queen’, are you excited for the sequel, ‘Glass Sword’? Yes I am. Once I closed the book, I immediately wished that I waited till the last book was almost published, just so I could marathon the series.
Who was your favourite character? Julian was my favourite character. I thought he had an interesting background, and I’m hoping to hear more about him in the next book.
Based on your first reactions, were you Team Maven or Team Cal? I passionately shipped Mare and Maven.
If you could choose to have any of the Silvers powers, what would you pick? Whisper. I feel like it’s the most powerful power. And because I can communicate telepathically.
Can you describe ‘Red Queen’ in three words? WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED?!
Final rating out of 10? 8
