Well, for once, I have an answer to the usual end-of-the-month Road Trip Wednesday question:
What was the best book you read in January?
I called this one back when I finished the book, on New Year's Day. In fact, I called that it would be the best thing I'd read all year, but one thing at a time. I read two books this month that I gave five stars on Goodreads (check back for Sunday Sunshine this week to see what the second one is) but The Scorpio Races, by Maggie Stiefvater, takes the prize. I keep having to stop myself from just going back and re-reading it instead of attending to my lengthy, lengthy TBR list. I've already waxed poetic about it, here, so I'll keep today short. But if you are the kind of kid who read a lot of horse books as a child, or if you're looking for a slow-burning, rich, lyrical read--you may want to consider reading The Scorpio Races like, immediately.
