[Waiting On Wednesday: Red Queen]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"Red Queen"
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Release Date: February 10th, 2015


Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own--an ability she didn't know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.

To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard--the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince--and Mare against her own heart.

From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.

Look at that cover?! It had a crown and blood on it. How creepy is that. I lurv it so much and I need it and it sounds so good. And I feel like I'm doing exciting rambling, so sorry, but not really...

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!    

P.S. since this week is my birthday week (and today is my birthday!) I'm doing twitter giveaways for some of my favorite books. Twitter handle @BlueBowGrl

Happy Birthday!

The Red Queen looks so freaking awesome! Reminds me a bit of Alice In Wonderland with the red and silver colors even though the novel sounds nothing like it. xD Definitely adding this to my TBR pile.
