You Gotta Read…The Scorpio Races

JV You gotta read this!

Maggie Stiefvater’s contemporary fantasy, The Scorpio Races, came out in 2011. I read it exactly one time, but nearly eight years later, it remains one of my favorite books.

Why I loved it:

  • the push and pull between the two main characters, Puck and Sean
  • the fantastical imagery of the demonic water horses–they were super scary and fascinating all at the same time
  • Puck’s deep love for her horse
  • there is tension on every page–I couldn’t put this book down
  • the mixture of fantasy and contemporary worlds
  • no denying Stiefvater knows how to write beautifully

Has anyone else read it? And if you haven’t–don’t wait.
