Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!
This week the book that I'm making all the grabby hands at and whining about not getting an ARC of is Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard!!
"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 am I eagerly awaiting Red Queen? Well, look at that summary! Doesn't it sound fantastic? And I've seen some really positive reviews for this one from some of my blogging friends, so I'm very much excited about this one! I hope I can get to read it soon and love it as much as some of my friends!
What are you all (im)patiently awaiting this week?
I can't wait to read this myself. I'm starting this next month. I wish you got a copy too. I'm not usaully one for Fantasy's but this looks brilliant! Great pick, Pili! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Emma, I cannot wait to hear what you think of it!Delete
I've seen so many positive reviews for this one too! The synopsis just sounds so amazing!ReplyDelete
Fantastic pick, Pili! I can't wait for this one to come out either!
It sounds brilliant, doesn't it?? Thank you Samantha!Delete
Was there a sampler for this? I seem to remember a sampler. Hmmm. My brain is getting old. I went to see if it was still on Netgalley the other day and it said preferred for Australia and the UK. I requested anyway, but got turned down. I am curious to hear what you think when you do read it because I have seen mixed reviews.ReplyDelete
It was on EW as far as I know, and yes also the AUS & UK Netgalley version. I've seen mixed reviews too, but it still sounds pretty cool!Delete
I am still going to let you be the guinea pig!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see what you think of this one Pili! I thought it was fantastic and now I'm desperately counting down the days until book 2 is out. Which is hard since book 2 doesn't have a release date yet ;-)ReplyDelete
Your review is one those that made me do all the grabby hands for the book!Delete
Thank you, Jenny!
I just finished this one. So good! (though, there was a kind of love triangle)ReplyDelete
I hope that you like it when you get it.
I've heard about the sort of love triangle, but I hope it won't be too bad!Delete
Thank you, Lis!
So much hype around this! I hope it'll live up to it and you'll love it Pili! The story does sound promising ;)ReplyDelete

You know it was, Alyssa! ;) Yours and Jenny's! ;)Delete
I read a review that compared this one to Red Rising so I'm a little intrigued. It does sound quiet interesting on its own as well and I like the cover as well. Nice pick!ReplyDelete
Yeah, I've read a few reviews that also compared this one to Red Rising, which makes me want to read it even more since I looooved Red Rising!!Delete
I'm super excited to read this. Kristen didn't care for it, so that makes me a bit nervous, but I hope she's the odd man out here. :)ReplyDelete
Kristen's review made me go uh oh... but I've alread read other reviews that really liked it, so I know I must read it myself and see what happens!Delete
I read Red Queen a while ago and it is fantastic, Pili! I hope you love it when you do get to it--it's totally worth the wait xDReplyDelete
Great pick, hun! <33
YAY! So happy to hear you loved it, Melanie!!Delete
Ahh Yes the RED QUEEN is on everybody's wish list! I can't wait to read this. I keep reading awesome no spoiler reviews and I just cry a little bit every time lol. It's almost here :)ReplyDelete
Awesome pick Pili xoxo
It sounds fantastic, doesn't it? Cannot wait!Delete
Thank you Helena!
You'll LOVE Red Queen, Pili! Esp. if you loved Rutkoski's writing because they have the same dream-like quality, except that this one has a more Red Rising premise ;)ReplyDelete

Rutkoski's writing with a Red Rising premise? I don't think anyone could have sold this book to me better, Faye! Thank you!Delete
