Finished a couple of books for review this week – one being Joe Hill’s The Fireman – an excellent read – review to be posted later. And I finished The Scorpio Races! I have to admit – when I first started this book, I wasn’t completely in love with it. I’m a huge fan of Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Boys series (just bought The Raven King this past week), but this one took a little while to grab me – but when it did, I literally couldn’t put it down and became completely enthralled with the story. The descriptions, imagery, writing, characters and their incredibly high stakes – just a perfect book all the way around. Parts of it are heart-wrenching, but karma makes some well-deserved visits to a few characters. If you haven’t experienced any of this author’s books, it’s your loss. Amazing reads.
I finished a Stiefvater book and bought another – so the count remains the same.
TBR pile: 104
Total: 104 – making absolutely no progress as far as numbers go – on the flip side, I’m ahead of schedule on my Goodreads reading challenge!
