It’s not often I can say there isn’t a single thing I dislike about a book. Please note that I listened to the audiobook version narrated by Steve West and Fiona Hardingham. THINGS I LIKED: The settingIs it Scottish, is it Irish? Is it a little of both? I’m not sure. The atmosphereVery gloomy ...

What to say about The Scorpio Races, which I read as my first Booklikes-opoly Free Friday Selection: The story of The Scorpio Races is told from two intersecting perspectives, that of Puck Connolly and that of Sean Kendrick. The audiobook is read by two narrators, a female narrator for the chapte...

"Tell me what it's like. The Race.""What it's like is a battle. A mess of horses and men and blood."Too bad that's not actually what the book is about, at least not 95% of it.Before reading this book I didn't understand why those I follow gave this book low ratings when it has such a good premise. H...

The Scorpio Races is one of Maggie Stiefvater's better received books - which is saying something when you're a fan of everything the author puts out. This was the last of her books that I needed to read and since I had so much success with her Wolves of Mercy Falls series, it seemed like the perfe...

Once upon a time, I fell in love with Maggie Stiefvater and her writing. I was given a copy of Shiver when I first started blogging, and completely fell in love with it. Then, for some reason, I never picked up another of her books. Time went by, books came and went, until finally Audible said "You ...

***Note: this review assumes that you've read the book.*** One-sentence summary: a long build-up to a very short actual race, with Ms. Stiefvater focused laser-like on character and setting, while losing track of plot and pacing again. Plot summary (so I don't forget). The book starts with a fla...
