Recommended Reads: THE SCORPIO RACES

Here’s another magical story I couldn’t put down. Part of me was bothered by the idea of capturing and caging mythical sea horses, and that feeling only seemed to get worse as the story went on.

But I think that’s kind of the point. It adds to a darkness in this book that wouldn’t be so pronounced without it, and in that darkness this love story shines so bright.

One of my favorite concepts in love stories is when the differences between two people create the perfect connection, a meant-to-be team, and each brings something to the other. Where each person guards the other, keeps them safe from their demons. They don’t just love each other, they need each other in a life-or-death way.

And there’s so much more going on in this plot which I don’t want to mention for fear of ruining the magic.

Recommended Reads: THE RAVEN BOYS

theravenboysTHE RAVEN BOYS was so entertaining on so many levels I could barely stand it. It was hard to read without shouting aloud at the end of every page. What would I be shouting? No idea. Gibberish probably. Or maybe fangirl squeals. My brain was so consumed by great characters and story it had no power left to form words.
