Red Queen

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

I can't do this book. I really can't. I was so excited to read this too but, yeah no it's not happening. I got to about page 100, past my first typical DNF mark and it's just not for me. I was expecting dystopian and got a dystopian high fantasy mix. I kept comparing this to the BIRTHMARKED trilogy which is fucking phenomenal, but it felt like a combo of The Selection which I read because it's a train wreck and I can't stop, and a wannabe Katniss. I am probably super alone in this but I tried. I really couldn't do this.
