My Favorite Lines from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Victoria Aveyard is becoming one of my favorite authors! 😁 In fact, after reading Red Queen, she has already become one! 😄 Her characters are amazing and her words are .

Even though I’m a little late to start reading this series, I’m sure glad I picked this book up! ☺

Red Queen is like a combination of Divergent and The Selection. I love it since it is set in a dystopian setting and I just love dystopian books! 😍

There are already a lot of reviews on this book so what I’m going to share are my favorite lines from Red Queen. 😊

“Words can lie. Look beyond them.”

“Thinking all Sillvers are evil is just as wrong as thinking all Reds are inferior.”

“There’s nothing wrong with being different.”

“I didn’t want to trust him before for this very reason, for the secrets he kept hidden. Or maybe, this is what he was hiding all along … his own heart.”

“He saved me, he brought me home, he broke the rules for me. And he’s a merciless solidier, the heir to a bloody throne.”

“If you know someone’s fear, you know them.”

“Tears sting my eyes, threatening to fall, but I will not cry. I have that much pride left. I can fight the tears but not the questions. Not the doubt growing in my heart.”

“As beautiful as this world is, it’s just as dangerous.”

“Conscription, survival, green-eyed children with quick feet and Kilorn’s last name. That future was almost impossible before; now it’s non-existent.”

“There’s a reason my only friends are written words.”

“Anyone can betray anyone.”

“Make no mistake, my girl,” he finally breathes. “You are playing the game as someone’s pawn.”

“As much as I want to stand still, to stop time and let this moment last forever, I know it’s not possible. Whatever I might feel or think, Cal is not the prince I’m promised to. More important, he’s on the wrong side. He’s my enemy. Cal is forbidden.”

“Cal is a cliff, and I throw myself over the edge, not bothering to think of what it could do to us both.”

“I have to hide her, the scared girl; I have to smile and dance and look like one of them.”

“Once, I feared he would go, and now I wish he would.”

“He knows I’m sinking fast, a stone dropping through the river. And he wants to drown with me.”

“I hurt everyone, especially myself.”

“I hate him. I know that, but something in his eyes and his voice reminds me that my feelings aren’t so simple.”

“I was wrong. About myself, about Cal, about everything. The pain makes my head spin, but somehow I keep myself from falling. He will never choose me.”

“I made him choose. I was eager, I was stupid. I let myself hope. I am a fool.”

“He was too perfect, too brave, too kind. He gave me exactly what I wanted, and it made me blind.”

“It was all a trick, a masterful trick. Every word, every touch, every look was a lie. And I thought I was the liar.”

“I will never make the mistake of loving you ever again.”
