Teaser Tuesday: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.

Red Queen – HarperTeen

One day he’ll realize I'm his enemy, and all this will be a far-gone memory. But not yet.
— Chapter 14

I can’t believe I didn’t see him for what he was from the beginning: a wolf in sheep’s clothing. And now I’m the sheep pretending to be a wolf.
— Chapter 24

Life isn’t about reaching the end in pristine condition with nary a scratch. Or so they say. If that is the case, I’d like to argue that neither is reading. You shouldn’t expect to reach the end of a book without having accepted some emotional punches in one way or another. This book is an especially adventurous reading rollercoaster. When you think you have figured out the motives of everyone they’ll more than likely blow up in your face. Anyone can betray anyone, as it says in the book ... and true to their word, they will. Even those who you think are a safe bet. A brilliant story with maybe one too many twist for me at the very end, but I’m more than excited to find out more in the next book.

Which book made you doubt your character understanding skills? Would you recommend it or rather say that it was causing you too much whiplash? Share your experiences and teasers in the comments.
