The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

When I first heard about The Scorpio Races, I was on the fence about picking it up. I loved Stiefvater's Book of Faerie series but I wasn't salivating to read it. I'm glad I decided to read it. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.
The Scorpio Races have been compared to The Hunger Games. Eh, ok. I think that comparison made it hard for me to like The Scorpio Races at first. But after while I was able to get into the story. Puck is the first woman to run in The Scorpio Races. I liked Puck. I immediately wanted to root for her. I took me a while to warm up to Sean. But I liked learning about him a little bit at a time. The pacing was perfect. Stiefvater really knows how to write a great story.
Overall, The Scorpio Races was a fantastic read. Another fantastic story by Stiefvater. Others who shared their thoughts on The Scorpio Races: The Perpetual Pageturner, Chick Lit Teens, Pub Writes, Fluttering Butterflies, and Books From Bleh to Basically Amazing.
