[WoW #1] Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

Hey guys,

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine and and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My WoW for this week is Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard:


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. [Publisher]

It sounds amazing, doesn't it? Every blogger I know, who has already read it, loves it, so this book just has to be phenomenal! And the cover is also pretty amazing. The crone with the blood - really unique! By the way, it will be published on February 12th 2015 by Harper Teen.

Do you want to read this book, too? Have you already pre-ordered it or are you still waiting to do it - like me?

An Introduction...I suppose...


So...I think I'm supposed to write an introduction. For the beginning, you should know that I suck in things like that. Sometimes I write way too much, sometimes I write almost nothing. So, as you can see, or as you'll see because at the moment there aren't any meaningful posts here. But they'll come, or at least I hope.

So, basically this is going to be a book blog, running by a little girl from Germany. This girl was a bit different. She didn't like the real world that much, she rather got lost in books. One day the little girl started a German Blog called Kueckibooks. And she was very happy, because she loved this blog, and she loved to blog. She met a lot of nice people, and one day she met some blogger, who weren't native English speaker but who used to blog in English anyway. So she started to write some English post on her German blog, because since she was you she has loved the English language, and she loved to read in English, so she wanted to try to blog in English as well. That's why she opened a second blog called "On my way to wonderland" to make this dream come true. 

So, I'm glad you found the way to my wonderland. If you want to check out my German blog I'll link it below. 

Now you're in my wonderland! My Name isn't Alice, but you call my Kuecki if you want to. That's not my real name, but its close. And I don't follow the white rabbit to find wonderland, but the call of good books. I'm always looking for good books and hope they'll take me to wonderland. That's why my preferred genre is Fantasy. I love to follow their words into a different world with different creatures and culture. I also really like to read Dystopian or Post-Apocalyptic books. Sometimes I read Contemporary books as well, but I don't like them that much. 

As I told you, I'm from Germany, so English is a foreign language for me. I'll try to make as little mistakes as possible, but I hope it won't disturb you if I'll make some. I'm here to have fun and to improve my English skills, so I'll be thankful for constructive criticism and help, but I don't want you to be unfriendly.

So...this was longer than expected, but anyway, I'm glad I wrote something. I hope you'll stay a bit, let's fill my wonderland with thoughts and amazing people!

Kuecki ♥

Okay, STOP, I think you've forgotten someone: me. You're wondering who I am?  This ominous me is called Maura and she is also from Germany. The similarities don't stop here, though: I own also a German blog: The emotional life of books. And I also love the English language. I love reading in English, writing in English and talking in English (even though my English is not the best, so I will make mistakes, but I really hope they won't disturb you too much!). 
Do you want know some other facts about me? Mhm, okay, I'm sixteen years old. Besides my love of reading I love dancing ballet and modern dance, writing my own stories and blogging (obviously...). 
I do not only read one genre, but I love fantasy, contemporary, YA (of course...), paranormal, biographies and classics (so nearly everything). My favourite books (besides Harry Potter): the Throne of Glass - series, the Shatter me - series, some German classics, the His Dark Materials - series, The DUFF and so on...
So, imagine Kuecki as the Alice, than I'm The Queen of Hearts here. But don't hate me, please. I can be nice. Really! Trust me! I promise I won't behead you!

Maura ♥
