[tps_title]01. Mare, Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Okay, I know what you’re all thinking already: “Brooke. What? Are you sure?” Which is generally what many people say to me when I express my obviously great opinions via the internet or in person, but hear me out, guys. Mare Barrow is one of those characters that was relatable to me. Have you ever read a book where you shut the cover and sat for a minute to decompress and enjoy the afterglow? This was not one of those for me, but the kind where I shut the cover and desperately yearned for more. Mare is a character who is flawed, but ultimately wants the best for everyone around her. She makes extremely overzealous decisions regarding her people and is in a bit of need for some character development, but she is overall an extremely gorgeous heroine who gets the “You’re a wizard, Harry” line and then kicks some butt. Lucky for me (and you!) Victoria is signed on to do two more books, making this a trilogy.
Is it 2016, yet?
Above is an ‘official’ trailer for the book. Time for the movie trailer, please.
