In this word, nothing is black and white… but it IS red or silver. Mare Barrow lives in a world where people are described and segregated by the color of their blood – red or silver. Mare is a red, which means that she lives with poverty and oppression, as the silvers nearby enjoy their freedom and excess. But a series of events leads Mare in the belly of the beast with some of the most powerful silvers alive; and they’re all about to discover that Mare, and countless others like her, can’t be contained by the red/silver dichotomy. But just like many of the other dystopian series I’ve picked up this year, I never connected with The Red Queen. The ten discs dragged by and I found myself forgetting characters and plotlines, unable to stay interested in the story. In fact, to give you the summary above, I had to Google the book. Oops! This series, but it wasn’t for me. Except for that gorgeous cover! How beautifully sinister. Did you read the Red Queen? What did you think? #bookreview #youngadult #ireadya #redqueen #dystopian #bookstagram
