Review of "Red Queen" (Red Queen #1) by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

Finished. Not sure what I think.

 

A much hyped series with lots of activity on my book sites that I was curious to try.

 

I expected like others reviewing the book to either really love it it really hate it.  I did not.

 

I finished this first book and never really connected.  I was also very distracted when reading it.  I may not have been in the mood for this.  A few sparks of interest and a few annoyances.  I'm not likely the targeted audience age.

 

I haven't made up my mind if will be reading further.  I did not enjoy enough to run right out and buy rest of series; definitely will be a library borrow if I ever do continue reading further in this series.
