What Are You Reading Wednesday was created by Rhianna, Marissa, and Kendall. The idea is to create a space for book lovers to share, discuss, and recommend the books they are currently reading and loving. All you have to do is answer the questions about your current read and then head over to one of the host’s sites to link up your post! Have fun and don’t forget to check out everyone’s posts as well!
MY CURRENT READ
This is a world divided by blood – red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power. Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime. But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.
1. Why did you decide to pick up this book–cover or content?
Content, but mostly because this is my blogging bestie Jessica’s favorite series. Also because we are reading it for her book club. If you are interested in joining us as we read this series in anticipation for War Storm, have a look at Jessica’s book club page.
2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?
Hmm…I really like the main character, Mare, but I think Cal may be my favorite character so far. I really don’t know why because I haven’t seen much of him. I just have a good feeling about him.
3. Will you finish this one?
Yup! Reading this along with a wonderful and supportive group! We help to keep each other motivated and on track! Also we will be discussing this at the end of the week!
4. This book reminds me of…
Lots of different books honestly. The Hunger Games, Shatter Me, Shadow and Bone, Red Rising…
5. What type of read is this one? (Slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)
Cannot put it down! I was nervous going into this one since it has such mixed reviews. I can happily say that I am really enjoying it so far!
Well, that completes this week’s What Are You Reading Wednesday post! It was a lot of fun! Are you planning on participating next week? What is your current read? Let me know down in the comments! ‘Til next time!
