Book Review: Red Queen

YES, I’m here again, and I am SO sorry that I didn’t get any posts up. There’s been a lot going on, so I didn’t get the chance. School has been quite hectic, and as for the weekend, the weather was good so I was at the beach for both days. I literally can’t WAIT until I finish school. It’s so far away though… (the 26th) but when I do finish school, blog posts will be coming up more regularly. PLUS, I was thinking of doing my own readathon during the summer, since I have TWO WHOLE FREE MONTHS. OH. And while the idea has come up, do you ave any reading suggestions? I don’t want anything to long, because I’ll only be doing this for 12 hours. I was thinking of reading We are Okay because it kinda short looking, and I’ve been wanting to read it FOR AGES. But, ANYWAY. I’ve been rambling on for a while now so… onto the review.

Book Review (5)

I just finished this yesterday, and OH. It’s not what I was expecting. I thought it would be WAY worse. My sister (Sophia from @naturalmusings) read this book a while ago, and from her perspective, IT WAS CRAP. But to me, it wasn’t at all that bad. It was kinda a mix of a few books, but there were other things there too.
Another thing is, it seemed to have rolled on for ages while Mare was in the castle. I found that whole 100 or so pages quite dull, and I was beginning to think that Sophia was right about it. But then (at long bloody last) there was a major change.

I thought she was OK. She wasn’t that bad, but I did find her kind of odd. I don’t really know why, but there was this weird thing about her that I didn’t like. I donno what it was, but it’s there anyway. I like the whole ‘super power’ thing going on here. That lightning sounds cool. Normally I don’t like characters that have sort of fantasy powers and stuff, but this worked.

Well. At the start of the book, I thought he was just some random guy that was really kind. THEN, I got a bit confused. Wait, WHAT, he’s a prince!!!??? And then, I was all like, I hate you, and then at the end of the book, I was like, now you’re mister nice guy again, really? It’s confusing stuff, so it is…

I THOUGHT he was a goody – goody two shoes, but no. TRAITOR!!!

*That’s all I can say about such a traitor like him
