Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 2.27.21 PMThe Red Queen 

By Victoria Aveyard

The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?


 My Review:

First of all can we all have a moment of silence for the beautiful cover. Now, I’m a firm believer in less is more because this cover is absolutely gorgeous!

(Totally judging based on the cover right now, but it paid off)

Victoria had me at red and silver blood– like what?! Mind Blown!

You follow Mare who was born a red blooded peasant with nothing to look forward to but dying in the silver bloods battle

With a crazy turn of events she displays powers of her own and she even ends up in the running to be a Princess.

Victoria blew me away especially for this being her first novel! I’m completely hooked and anxiously awaiting the next book… very impatiently!

Fifty Shades of Grey By, E.L James

Fifty Shades

Synopsis For Fifty Shades of Grey:

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.


 

My Review:

I know, I know what your thinking!! But everyone who reads this book loves it, it’s got to be for a reason, right?!

I’ll give it to you straight…

Yes, there is the crazy sex, but there is also a love story here. For the first time Christian Grey feels something more for a girl and she’s a nobody, lit major, virgin with frizzy hair.  We watch as their love story unfolds and he ultimately makes these changes in his life for her. It appeals to every woman’s desire– awesome sex and a man that will change who he is for her. Super romantic and his crazy control and protectiveness can be kinda f*cking hott!!

OKAY, enough of the sex already you pervs– there’s also major Drama, Background into how Christian became the way he is, and just plenty more things from the past pop out and make loving Christian Grey not so easy..
