Victoria Aveyard was really nice and beautiful. She signed books for 1,200 people in the Glorietta event alone, which was insane. Her book are amazing at first when I saw a copy of the Red Queen last may I was skeptical at first at getting it because the synopsis kinda sounded like a mixture of different young adult fantasy books but I'm glad that I read it because it did stand out on its own. I love the characterization of Mare Barrow in the book. She is has a strong personality but she can be vulnerable at the same time, which makes her humane. And the politics in this novel is so good. I love how it relates to the real world and how the author incorporates different political theories, such as Aristotles' notion of a monarchy and ideas of democratization. The plot twist in the Red Queen got me flabbergasted. I was not really expecting it and I'm still in denial about it up until now. Even when I finished sword of glass I am still in DENIAL and I won't accept it until I read the next book.
|She so pretty even in blurry pictures.|
|So near yet still far away|
I was fangirling so hard that I was stuttering while talking to her. This is how our conversation went.
Me: (omg! she is so pretty)
V.A: Hi how are you?
Me: Fine, Can I just say that I love the politics in this novel?
V.A: Thank you.
Me: It just coincides with Aristotles idea of a monarchy and ideas about democratization.
V.A: Well... you're smarter than I am.
Me: Thanks (OMG she just called you smart OMG girl breathe)
She is just so nice and very welcoming.
