--> REREAD #3, NOVEMBER 2017So I purely reread this for the aesthetic of NOVEMBER 1st. Go me. I am shallow and great. And also I love this book so bloody much it actually hurts my heart. I am hopelessly and utterly in love with Sean and Corr and Thisby and every word choice is so PERFECT that it melts me.Notable 3rd Read Thoughts:• can Holly pls adopt Sean• Puck keeps trying to be less vinegar but she should be all the vinegar• 99% sure Finn has OCD and it is such a good rep• Gabe and Tommy Falks are my new ship don't @ me• SEAN FREAKING KENDRICK <3 <3• also shout out to the fact that this is truly the best romance of life and Sean and Puck like barely have to hold hands or kiss to be the most beautiful relationship of the world• also why can't I have more• sean tho• i need to go sit down i have emotions--> REREAD #2, JUNE 2016I CANNOT EVEN POSSIBLY REMEMBER HOW TO WORD RIGHT NOW PEOPLE. This book means so very much to me. You know those books that are just yours for some reason? This one = mine. It started me on YA. I read it after The Hunger Games and there was noooo going back afterwards. YA OBSESSION HERE WE COME. Not to mention my deep eternally wildly fangirling permanent adoration of all things Stiefvater. She is my most favourite author of the universe. Why? THIS IS WHY. Flawless books of utter writing perfection and characters that steal your heart. omg. I honestly...I'm just a mess of feelings.Re-reading this was like coming home to old friends. It's been 4 years since I read it. I FORGOT SO MUCH. I had like 9 anxieties reading it even though I'd already read it. I fell hopelessly back in love with Sean Kendrick. It's the quietness. I LOVE QUIETNESS. Sean says 1 word where everyone says 6. Me toooooo. Or else I say 0 words where everyone says 6 and wait until they're definitely listening to talk. His non-talking-ness just resonated wtih me. aGAIN. And Puck's vinegar and sugar temperament I just love endlessly. ALSO FINN; the precious. He is probably one of the bestly written characters with OCD I've ever read...especially in a fantasy!! (I think Maggie Stiefvater has OCD, right? So you can tell this is just crafted so beautifully and thoughtfully.) (I just wish I knew how old he was, dangit. I just KEEP WONDERING. I'm going to say 13 maybe?)ALSO I THINK I CRIED. Because beautiful words and just the way Thisby always catches my heart so I KINDA CAN'T BREATHE BECAUSE I LOVE IT ALL SO MUCH.I need more stars to give this book. MORE. STARS.(Also there's a whole chapter set in a bakery, FYI.)Needless to say: this is one of my all time favourite books of the universe. I just....I JUST CAN'T SUM IT UP OKAY?!? My heart fractured so. many. times. and the last chapter actually...I just...ajfdklasfdjakldj. If you haven't ever read a Stiefvater book: START HERE. I just want to HUG IT and keep it and love it forever. OKAY I'LL STOP GUSHING BUT OMG THIS BOOK MEANS THE WORLD TO ME.(Note: the audiobook is freaking fantastic by the way. BEST choice for the re-read. The actors are impeccable and Sean's voice = <3333 PLUS it has music on their by Maggie Stiefvater!!

  2. Also posted on STRANGEMORE.This is basically the paranormal version of Misty of Chincatigue with gasp romance Like Hidalgo, on the beach instead of the desert with gasp kissing Between two riders NOT between the horse and it s rider though Well sometimes between the horse and it s rider Just a little.When this book started, it felt like a breath of fresh sea air, not rife with the smell of YA cliche That was mainly because I thought this book was told from the alternating perspective of two boys [...]

GET IT HERE FOR 1.99 9 22 2017 This Skarmouth is raw and hungry, striving and unknowable Everything the race makes me feel on the inside is bleeding up through the seams in the street tonight Sean Kendrick I wonder how long it will take for me to feel as adult on the inside as I look on the outside Puck Connolly deep breath Sometimes you read a book and it becomes your whole world while you are reading it For me, The Scorpio Races is one of those books I am just forever in debt to Maggie Stiefva [...]


  4. 3.5 5 stars I really liked The Scorpio Races, and I m glad I listened to it on audiobook Since there were two voice actors it was very easy to separate Puck and Sean, which was lucky since I ve heard that some readers found it very difficult to distinguish between them when reading the book The narrators also had very different ways of speaking as the characters, which made it impossible to mix the two up while listening.The writing was beautiful There is such a rich atmosphere, and the descript [...]


  5. It s easy to convince men to love you All you have to do is be a mountain they have to climb or a poem they don t understand Puck has a horse, two brothers and soon no house to call a home Sean s heart beats for something that he doesn t own Both have no choice and only one chance to get what they desperately need It s either win or die.Why did I not pick this up sooner This totally deserves the 5 star rating My heart goes out to every single tiny detail of this book But most of all for the oh s [...]


  6. They came in with the tide The moon illuminated long lines of froth as the waves gathered and gathered and gathered offshore, and when they finally broke on the sand, the capaill uisce tumbled onto the shore with them The horses pulled their heads up with effort, trying to break free from the salt water.I had to restrain the squealing, fangirly Maja and shove her in the closet so that the adult, critical Maja can sit and write this review Believe me, it s better this way With The Scorpio Races, [...]



  7. I reckon the reasons for which The Scorpio Races weaved itself throughout my beloved favorites could cause an opposite reaction to other readers Do I care, though No, because every slow paced page, every heartfelt and beautiful sentence, every haunting and atmospheric landscape, every inch of Sean s bloody stained jacket and killer horse reminds me that if nothing else, The Scorpio Races has a soul, and I m consumed by it I am here on firm ground, but part of me is already down on the beach, and [...]


  8. Killer water horses Maggie Stiefvater What could go wrong As it turns out, quite a lot I feel just terrible writing this, and if you want to know just how much, it actually took me 4 months to make myself finish the book partly because I wasn t engaged in the story, but also because I could sense that this wasn t going to be good reading experience After the bruising my heart took with Forever, I really didn t want to write a second negative review for this author But I m afraid my disappointmen [...]

Tarot card reading for this book inverted Tower The Tower is leaning into the sea, crumbling, with thrashing waves and stormy skies, and while it can be a card of destruction, it can also be a card of fundamental change which describes The Scorpio Races down to the letter.A fierce and hungry book Even the wind is hungry here, a live, starving thing The tomboyish Kate, otherwise known as Puck, and her brothers have been orphaned ever since the carnivorous water horses killed their parents Loss ru [...]

  14. 4.75 A Buddy Read with the MacHalo Freaks, because mythical blood thirsty Water Horses are awesome Let me start by saying that very few authors are capable of affecting me emotionally the way Maggie Stiefvater does Her prose is magic I am not just spouting words here Her writing hits somewhere in the vicinity of my soul and I can t get away unscathed She wounds with her beautiful prose, enchants with her lyrical cadence of melody made of letters, and heals with the hope for salvation, as unlikel [...]




  15. Absolutely fantasical More pleaseFirst off, a huge thanks to Flannery from thereadventurer who is touring this book with the Street Corner Bookers and allowed me to experience this crazy sauce of a book Thank you Wow Just wow Maggie Stiefvater has definitely cemented her status in the YA genre and Scorpio Races is her full access ticket to the game I ve enjoyed her Mercy Falls trilogy for over a couple of years, but this book has definitely pulled her away from the pack and shown she has what it [...]


  16. Scorpio Races is such a beautifully written tale, I swear I could cry In retrospect, I did cry while reading the book In fact, I ve experienced a dozen different emotions while reading The entire story was exciting, intriguing, terrifying, hilarious, romantic, inspiring, fantastical and heartwarming I adored it It s funny because I was never a fan of Ms Maggie Stiefvater I tried reading Shiver but got so bored I didn t even finish it I gave her a second chance in Raven Boys and even though I lik [...]


  17. On a small island in the Scorpio Sea, men and boys strive to capture the deadly, killer water horses that come onto the land from the ocean If they can master these mounts, they can ride in the yearly races for honor, glory, and big cash bets Sean Kendrick races for his father, killed by the same water horse he rides now, and for the horse farm he works for as chief hostler He has won the Scorpio Races four times and understands the water horses like no one else Puck Connolly, on the other hand, [...]


  18. This was a book I was ready to hate Actually, if I m being honest, this was a book I wanted to hate What German foosball players aren t the only ones capable of schadenfreude.Plus, this was a story about horses, those vicious, four legged beasts that naive children are tricked into riding at summer camp before they re brutally thrown off Hypothetically speaking, of course Yet I found myself drawn into this story, this mythic tale of savage water horses in a barbaric race created by all too real [...]


  19. 3.5ish stars.An enjoyable YA sort of fantasy, sort of romance book that doesn t really focus on either genre as much as it focuses on its likable lead characters and the cool water horses used to race in the titular Scorpio Races It s also just very classy it s definitely a YA novel, but it avoids being immature YA fantasy romance is not my preferred genre for which reason I tend not to read much of it, and I don t expect this to make a particularly lasting effect on me, but this made for a very [...]


  20. The Scorpio Racesis one of those books that you can read as much as you want about and raise your expectations to seemingly unreachable levels, butnothingcan prepare you for the story within its pages It s beautiful from the writing, to the descriptions, to the characters and their relationships everything about this novel is a beauty Yet, what truly moved me as I read this novel was the sheer amount of passion it contained I have never read a Maggie Stiefvater novel before, but if each one of h [...]


  21. Tell me what it s like The race What it s like is a battle A mess of horses and men and blood The fastest and strongest of what is left from two weeks of preparation on the sand It s the surf in your face, the deadly magic of November on your skin, the Scorpio drums in the place of your heartbeat It s speed, if you re lucky It s life and it s death or it s both, and there s nothing like it This book This book is about blood and sea foam, about folklore and danger, about a girl and a boy and thei [...]


  22. Welp, kids It s been real, but I m going to retire now This is a perfect book It s perfect This Book Is Perfect.It is an embarrassment for me to even try to write anything after this So, in lieu of continuing to try to write, I will simply be giving out copies of The Scorpio Races to everyone for all future birthdays and Christmases.


  23. Edit I feel it worth nothing that this is my 250th review Yay milestones This is the first time I ve felt even a little guilty about not liking a galley I didn t really enjoy this book, but I didn t hate it enough not to care, and so here I am stuck in limbo, not really sure what to do with it.The idea is absolutely fabulous A race run on killer water horses Yes, please And there s the element of romance between two competitors, both with a reason they need to win, which just amps up the tension [...]


  24. I ll never look at horses the same again This book is amazing I really have nothing negative to say From page one I was so interested in this book I loved it right from the start The writing is incredible and mesmerizing The characters are beautiful and complex The plot is interesting and the concept is mind blowing.There s only a handful of books that I ve read that have made me feel how I felt while reading The Scorpio Races I laughed, I cried, I did everything I never wanted to put this book [...]


  25. Well, for feck s sake I can t post my comment in my group buddy read, so I ll dump it here and write the review later Grrr, Errors and stuff.I finished Whew That ending I totally cried Very moving sniff I really liked it I had a couple minor issues Some of the book felt too slow moving and there was no view spoiler explanation for any of the magic or history of the horses No world building where they are concerned We just know they have always been around as long as people have been on the islan [...]
