Teaser Tuesdays: TheScorpio Races

Hi, everybody!

TUESDAYS: not as bad as Mondays, but still too early in the week to be excited for the weekend. Luckily we have awesome memes like Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, to help us pass the time! :)

The Rules: 
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
(Find it on Goodreads)

And there is the girl. When I first see her and her dun mare from my vantage point on the cliff road, I am struck first not by the fact that she is a girl, but the fact that she's in the ocean. It's the dreaded second day, the day when people start to die, and no one will get close to the surf. But there she is, trotting up to the knee in the water. Fearless. 

~Sean Kendrick about Kate/Puck Connolly on pg. 97-98
I'm almost done this book and I can't even tell you how much I'm LOVING it so far! Maggie Stiefvater is such an amazing author and this whole "killer water horses" thing is genius! :)

  14. Oh my Lovely Mimi!! Im so happy you are loving this book!! This one is one of my favorite of the year sniff! A lot of people wasnt very happy with it, but mostly, it's because those people were expecting to find a love story like in Shiver. This book is not really the same genre at all. So those people were kinda deceived by the book. I personally love this book so much! it brought tears to my eyes!! beautiful in every single way!!! I take my hat and I bow in front of Maggie! Bravo!!

    Keep enjoying it me dear!! Every single word, is written with love <3 =)

  15. Great teaser!! I'm glad you're enjoying the book, I loved it!
