Red Queen Book Club

Hey everyone! This months book club is on "Red Queen" by Victoria Aveyard. If you haven't read the book click here to read my spoiler free summary/review of it on "Books at Tea Time" and don't read any further on this post. 
Let's get right down to it. Be sure to answer at least one of the questions below and rate the book. I would love to hear from you!

I give Red Queen 5 out of 5 stars, it's now one of my favorite books and I will definitely re-read it. It is so well written and is just overall amazing. I recommended it to everyone. Ok, I'm done gushing about the book now.
First lets talk about the characters, who was your favorite? I honesty think its hard to choose, but probably Mare and Cal. Mare, the heroine of the story, is strong, determined, and will fight for what she believes in (all the makings of a great female character)—even though she ultimately becomes a pawn, she still tries to control the game.
A lot of people complained about this, but I honestly didn't mind that the story  has similarities to Hunger Games and Divergent. I think that anyone who liked the Hunger Games or Divergent series will love it though. Did it the similarities bother you? There is a capitol (like in Hunger Games), there are the poor, regular people and then the high-tech, wealthy people in the capitol (again like Hunger Games), lastly Mare and other people like her who have silver abilities and red blood are seen as a threat to the system (like Divergents). 
Do you think Cal and Mare could still be together (I sure hope so)? Or do you think Mare could end up with Kilorn? 
Lastly, what did you think of that betrayal? Did you see it coming? I know I didn't, it was mind blowing. 

Other questions:
• If it were made into a movie who would you want to play your favorite character? 
• Would you have changed how the book ended? 

Congratulations to Daria for winning last months Paper Towns Giveaway! Hope you enjoy the book!
