My first John Green book! Also, John Green's first book. I will be going back for more. I like clever people, and this book is full of them.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
What stood out most to me was the incredible setting and how Stiefvater used it. I've loved all of Stiefvater's books, but this one really uses the island it's set on in a different way. Have you read it? What did you think?

Something different from the paranormal side of things here. If you're intrigued by the title, you won't go far wrong reading this. Favourite aspect? The story. A good, complicated, twisty story that kept me interested. Also, zombie squirrels. Yeah!
Have you read anything great lately?
