The time it was about Reading Rewind {9}

Posted October 15, 2016 by Stacee in Reading Rewind | 5 Comments

Hi everyone!  Here we are for another round of Reading Rewind!


When it came time to pick a book for September, I took to Twitter and you guys answered the call.  For some reason, I never got around to starting the book {who knows why}, so here we go.

You guys chose The Scorpio Races!

1. When did you originally read the book and what did you rate it?

I read TSR in March of 2012 and rated it 4 stars.  It was my first Maggie book.  Everyone had been going on and on about how amazing it was.  And I had no idea what I was getting into.

2. Why did you love it?

I didn’t write a review, so I’m going to guess I enjoyed the imagery and magic of the story.  You know, the Maggie standard.

3. After the re-read did your rating/feelings about it change? Why or why not?

I rated the re-read 5 stars.

I loooooooved Puck and Sean and the horses and the town.  And still the imagery and magic of the story. This time around, I knew that I needed to read Maggie’s books slowly and read every word. I really took my time with it {I’m literally typing this up the night before the post goes live because I just finished the book.}

I forgot how delicious the slow burn build up to race day was.  I forgot how Sean whispered to Corr and the other horses.  I forgot how angry Mutt made me.  I forgot about the anticipation of the race and how I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.  I forgot about the initial heartbreak of the ending…I forgot just how much I enjoyed this story.

But it did remind me of how badly I want to binge The Raven Cycle. Because Ronan and Chainsaw.

  1. I read the first three Raven Cycle books before I read this one, and it amazed me how it was so different, but still had the same vibe. I have the audiobook everyone has been raving about now, but I am afraid to listen to even the tiniest snippet, to quench my curiosity about the narrator, because I know I will want to listen to the entire book and I don’t have the time right now. :)
