Waiting on Wednesday - The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater


Waiting on Wednesday was a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, so that bloggers can feature upcoming releases that they cannot wait to get their hands on.

Here's mine...


It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

 You have no idea how excited I am for this one.  I just finished Maggie Stiefvater's Wolves of Mercy Falls series, and I adored it.  Now I want to read everything she's ever written.  EVER.


And just in case the cover and the summary didn't grab you, here's another little treat:  Maggie made a trailer for the book.  You can see it here, and I will also be posting it here on the blog once I can get my dang computer to cooperate with me.  (It's still sleepy).


Happy Reading Everyone!


...and share your Waiting on... posts in the comments!  I love to see them!
