Scorpio Races
Scorpio Races | Maggie Stiefvater
A spellbinding novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater. Some race to win. Others race to survive. It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die. At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them. Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn't given her much of a choice. So she enters the competition - the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen. As she did in her bestselling Shiver trilogy, author Maggie Stiefvater takes us to the breaking point, where both love and life meet their greatest obstacles, and only the strong of heart can survive. The Scorpio Races is an unforgettable reading experience.

Thank you for these #MoonReflections @Meaw_catlady 🌜 YOU are a true blessing! 🤗

1. I have trouble setting boundaries, but there are a handful of people in my life who always expect me to drop everything I‘m doing when they want something, yet never show consideration for me when I need something, so I‘m going to start saying “no” and limit my interactions with them.
2. Breathe
3. Sending blessings to any Littens going through a tough time! 🙏

Okay, when I put the Thestral on top of the book in my other picture, I didn‘t know how close to the actual capall uisce I‘d get. If only Thisby was real!! I would go there in a heartbeat. This book is so good, lovely and unique, and I hope maybe one day we get a chance to see what happens after the races. A wonderful fall read, and definitely a good spooky one.

I finished my first Maggie Stiefvater book last month! This was an interesting read. Kind of a slow burn, but also intense all at once? I listened to the audiobook and the two POV characters were voiced by the same narrators as An Ember in the Ashes and they‘re sooo good! I‘m definitely interested in trying out her Raven Cycle series... maybe next year?

In the first half of the book I felt very strongly that it was going to be rated a so-so for me. It just felt very slow paced with not a lot of important events. I'm very glad that I kept with it though because The Scorpio Races ended up being more than worth it, it's a very special book and it really spoke to me. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, and it definitely turned out to be a pick for me.

I was so wrapped into this book and thought I had 34 minutes left and my Kindle tricked me and it ended 😭😭😭 All the emotions for Kate and Sean and Dove and Corr. All the characters on this lonely, wild island came to life with Maggie's deft and talented writing. I'm a sucker for strong, resilient female leads and lonely stone faced, soft hearted men co-starring. I had tears in my eyes at the final scene. 4 and a half stars!

Shley9225 I remember reading and loving this book years ago, and yet I‘ve somehow forgotten every single detail within it. Time for a reread perhaps? 10mo

Hmm if this isn't my favorite book, it's definitely close. I can't help but absolutely love every single part of this novel! The world is so whimsical: man-eating water horses that are raced every November. Sean and Puck, the main characters, have such chemistry. I love their individual plots and their plot together!
The audiobook is a great way to read it, all the music heard is composed and performed by the author herself.

I think I am going to shelf this and come back to it when I am in a different mood.
Because I am really bored with it. Such a disappointment because so many people love it, and I loved the Raven Cycle series, I loved All the Crooked Saints. I mean, the author said this is her favorite book she has ever written, it even got an award.
Maybe it is just me.

Chelsibno I think it‘s one of those books that you need to be in the right mood or state to read. I had started it a few years ago but had to shelve it, because I just couldn‘t get into it. I took it up again a couple years later and really enjoyed it. 12mo

"It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die."

These are the first words I ever read from someone who would become my favorite author. I have had the absolute joy of listening to Maggie talk and meeting her twice. I will always celebrate this book on this day because it is amazing and I need something after saying goodbye to my favorite month and holiday.

We‘ll be flying to Arizona & spending 10 days on a mini road-trip. One of our first stops is in Mesa. We‘re planning to kayak & see the Salt River Wild Horses. 😍

I‘d be lying if I said this stop wasn‘t inspired by Maggie Stiefvater‘s “The Scorpio Races.” 🐴🧜‍♀️

This book gave me all the feels 😭 I was crying because Puck's relationship with Dove was so beautiful and then Sean and Corr came along whose relationship just destroyed my heart completely, especially because of the ending 😭😭 the way Maggie Stiefvater describes the bond between those two and their horses is just so magical and reminded me of myself and my horse 💚

I had several hours in the car the other day and Puck and Sean kept me company the whole way. I thought the narrators did a really good job bringing the story to life. I liked that this story had little bits of magic but it didn‘t take over the story. It was more about the relationships between Puck, Sean, their horses, and families. Another book from the Audio Publisher ‘s Dinner at PLA.

This book is about carnivorous horses....water horses that come out of the sea and eat meat! It was disconcerting.
But, I love the way Steifvater writes. Her ethereal writing style, and her enchanting characters, made me soon get over the killer horses thing.
