This weeks book is…
Red Queen (Red Queen Trilogy #1)
Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood—those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own—an ability she didn’t know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.
To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into 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 her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard—the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince—and Mare against her own heart.
From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.

Why am I waiting for this book?
I think the summary tells you why, but if you want more straight forward then… The blood sets everyone apart? Oh, I must read now please! I have never read a book about blood being the conflict before and it sounds so interesting, and there are so many factors that could take place, and now I really want to know what Mare’s super secret power is!!!! And that cover art??!!! WOW, it looks super creepy, I really want to read this book on campus and freak people out! HAHAH.
