This novel is part of my heart. I can't even tell you how this novel grabs, teases, drenches my emotions with the joy of reading. I'm in love with all of the characters and the horses. The relationship between Puck and her brothers is awesome. I recommend this novel to everyone. It's gorgeous and utterly feel good read.

This novel is a masterpiece of utter joy to me. This sentence is touching by itself but in the full relevance of the relationship between a brother and sister it's divine. #quote #favorite

My #OwlCrate 10th anniversary edition of The Scorpio Races box delivered! Everything is super appropriate for the world of TSR!

Loving the blue and white blanket scarf that can be worn as a poncho, complete with hood!

The tea smells beautiful and I bet it will taste just as delicious!

I should make this a re-read, it was such an emotional book. One that stuck with me long after finishing it. I‘m sure the second time I‘ll be just as touched!

LibrarianRyan @WanderingBookaneer I am so over HP. Besides the movies are played into the ground (and my mother and nephews insist on watching it everytime it is on), all the other stuff, the author stuff, the people insisting there is no other better book. I'm just over it. and I was a huge HP fan, but so not anymore. And I need NO MORE HP swag. 2mo

WanderingBookaneer @LibrarianRyan I am over HP as well. It‘s also inescapable in YA. So many books have HP references. 2mo
LibrarianRyan And probably will for another decade or so. However, as a letters about Lit judge, we see less and less letters about HP. Except for last year when everyone was distance learning. Then over 1/2 our letters were HP. I figured it was because for many houses it was the only book series in the house. We also saw a lot of hunger games, and a lot of adult books for elementary readers (James Patterson specifically). like I said, what ever parents had 2mo
Bookzombie I hadn‘t heard about the Owlcrate issue. I‘m very over HP too. I haven‘t read any other Steifvater books so far, but I loved this one. 2mo

I have just finished this book. There were strong characters, a good plot, and a neat ending. The one thing that I didn't like was the fact that the actual race didn't start until the end of the book. I would have liked it a lot more if the races happened in the beginning or middle, and focused more on what happened after the race. It made the beginning and middle slightly boring. I would rate this a three out of five.

“It‘s the first day of November and so, today someone will die”
These haunting words set the whole tone of the story.
This story is beautiful but fearsome - I loved every minute.
I grew to admire the two main characters: the brooding, mysterious Sean Kendrick and the bold, determined “Puck”.
A simple plot which you can‘t help but be pulled into. A courageous spellbinding tale which I didn‘t want to end.

In the middle of all this, as Sean slips out of his jacket, he looks over his shoulder and he smiles at me, just a glancing, faint thing before he turns back to Tommy. I'm quite happy for that smile, because Dad told me once you should be grateful for the gifts that are the rarest.

You have to love a book which starts: It is the first day of November so today, someone will die. Every year on Thisby the water horses are raced. Puck has lost her mom and dad to the horses but she wants to be the first girl to ride in the Scorpio Races. Sean is the past champion. Story leads up to the day of the yearly race. Well written.

I love the aesthetic around the setting of the book: the island, the sea, dangerous horses that come from the sea, a race that defies love. It truly captured my attention instantaneously.

Puck Connolly might just be the best character I‘ve ever read about. She was so brave & true! And Sean Kendrick!! Oh my! Even his name is gorgeous! I have to say, I haven‘t fallen in love with a male character in so long, not since Tobias Eaton from Divergent.

My 6th read for #ReadYourSign #Scorpio
🦂 Book by a Scorpio author
🦂 Water heavily mentioned in the book

I found myself getting quite into this book as it went along. I wish there was a bit more at the end about what happened after the races, like how the island reacted to the result and if Holly‘s prediction came true (though with Dove and Corr). I loved the imagery and longing for the sea in the book, it makes me want to visit the ocean. 7/10

CrowCAH I LOVED this book; so vivid, lives in my memory! 🥰 1y

I love Irish and Scottish folklore because it is both beautiful and dangerous, grown much like the land it comes from. And while Scorpio Races is set against the backdrop of mystical water horses and an island they‘re drawn to, it‘s really so much more. I loved the characters, and while reading the pages, I was there, living amongst them. Maggie has a talent for bringing words to life. This book has seared a permanent place in my heart.

I'm a bit behind on reviews!! This one was pick no. 8 for May's #BookSpinBonanza. I hadn't read it in several years, so I couldn't remember the details or how everything came together - just that I had liked it! It's a great story with such a sense of place and season. More violent than I remembered, but not gratuitously so. This one is staying on my shelves!!

PS @Clwojick I kept thinking that carnivorous water horses would be your nightmare!!

Clwojick THEY WOULD! FRICK 😱 1y
TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick - the whole time I was like “If you were scared of horses already, this book would send you over the edge!“ DO NOT READ THIS ONE!! 😂 1y

Enchanted_Bibliophile Actually we have it all. On the coast it's wet, windy and cold. The mountain range that separate the coast from the inland is snowy and cold. As is the part desert that follows the mountains. Then you get the High Veld (where I live) and then there's the low veld where the temperature does not go down that much but in summer it's very hot and humid. That's the Bush Veld part where our biggest game reserve is. 1y

🎧 there is an audience for this book, it just wasn‘t me. This wasn‘t quite YA, maybe 11-13. Horse race with horses that eat humans on an island. Puck (Kate) & Sean‘s POV switch back & forth in the chapters. The narrators are great! I‘m just not into horses or horse racing. The book has a strong girl power message as of course horse racing is just for men. It‘s good for what it was just not my cup of tea. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

First and foremost, congrats to @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for getting these milestones!! Cheering you on!

1. While Into the Drowning Deep was my favorite book of 2019, I didn‘t technically read it in 2019, so... I did finally read the Scorpio Races and oh my god it was so good!
2. Most anticipated release for 2020 was One of Us is Next, but it‘s been mildly disappointing so far so I‘m gonna go with All the Stars and Teeth.

It took me a bit to warm to this story— a horse race just doesn‘t sound that interesting. And the horses come out of the ocean? Absurd. Don‘t be like me. Be better. Don‘t delay- just read it. After I flew through this book yesterday, I fell into that post-book depression. You know what I‘m talking about- when a book is good enough that you don‘t want it to be over and it lingers in your mind. That‘s the Scorpio Races. So supremely good.

I finally got around to reading it but I guess I don't understand why there was so much hype. Don't get me wrong, it's good -- a haunting magical realism love story between two folks who are entwined in the island on which they live and the lives of the horses, both land and water, which drives so much of the island's culture. A great interweaving of the bloody and brutal capaill uisce mythology into an everyday life. But I wasn't blown away.

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!
