Waiting on Wednesday: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

I love it when authors become really well known for a particular type of book, then sort of break away from it. Stiefvater still stays within the realm of YA books, but The Scorpio Races seems to have a totally different feel from Shiver and the rest of those books.

Title & Author: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Genre: YA- Fantasy (?)

Publication Date: October 18, 2011

Description: “With her trademark lyricism, Maggie Stiefvater turns to a new world, where a pair are swept up in a daring, dangerous race across a cliff–with more than just their lives at stake should they lose.”

Why I’m Stoked: I really loved Stiefvater’s other works, and am super excited for this new book/series!! Even though the description is not very detailed, I love the idea! Like Ben Hur meets the Dauntless (from Divergent). 🙂

What books are you pining over?

    Ah, this one looks so good! I can’t wait to read it. I do think they could have done something a BIT more interesting with the cover art, but the story will speak for itself. Nice pick!

    This one sounds slightly familiar. I recognize the authors name and think the book looks familiar too. But I don’t think I’ve heard much about it. Thank you for sharing this new book with us. 🙂
