Waiting on Wednesday (12)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that occurs here; we bloggers post about the books that we'd really like to read now :).

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Release Date: October 18, 2011

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Shiver and Linger comes a brand new, heartstopping novel.

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.

Yep.  They haven't released a lot of information about this one yet, but wow.  I read the prologue here, and look at this first line and tell me you wouldn't want to read this book:

"It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die."

:).  What're you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. This one sounds completely amazing. I can't wait to read it! Great choice.

    If you'd like, you can check out my WoW here.

  2. Yes, this should be an amazing one! I love Maggie's writing and the concept of The Scorpio Races - the tiny bits we've gotten, that is - sounds brilliant.

  4. Whoops, sorry about the previous post. The internet at college can be very wonky.

    Otherwise, I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Between it and forever, there's a lot to look forward to. :)
