Monarch Madness Blog Hop

I'm excited to be taking part in MEReadALot's Monarch Madness Blog Hop! I'm featuring Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard! I read the book in December, and let me say, it is AMAZING! In fact, you can go here to see my review!

But anyway, Red Queen rocks. It's so awesome, that I'm giving away a signed copy today! But first, if you haven't heard of read Red Queen, here's a little info.


Debut novelist Victoria Aveyard's sweeping tale of seventeen-year-old Mare, a common girl whose once-latent magical power draws her into the dangerous intrigue of the king's palace. Will her power save her or condemn her?

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with common, Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.

To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard--a growing Red rebellion--even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.

And don't worry, if you don't win, you can find Red Queen at all of these awesome sites!

You Can Find it At:
Barnes & Noble
Book Depository

Lastly, a little info on Victoria. You obviously can't get a book without making sure that the author's not a serial killer (btw, Victoria's not, I've met her. I know this)

Author Bio:

Born and raised in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, a small town known only for its traffic rotary, Victoria grew up painfully normal. The daughter of schoolteachers, she spent most of her time reading books and watching movies, looking for distractions and stories that could take her away. When she was accepted to the University of Southern California, Victoria took her chance and moved cross country. After graduating with a BFA in Writing for Screen & Television, she decided to try her hand at writing a novel. RED QUEEN came out of the terrifying, unemployed year after college.

Currently, Victoria is hard at work editing the second book in the series while pursuing other projects in publishing and screenwriting. She splits her time between Massachusetts, Los Angeles, Target, and Barnes & Noble.
