Review: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This week’s question: Gateway Books: Which particular books opened you up to a new genre?
After picking up reading again, thanks to Twilight, I was really into anything Paranormal, Fantasy, and/or anything Supernatural. It had to have some of those elements in the story for me to be interested.
Then I happened upon a book on sale in Amazon…the book was The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. I had never read Adult or YA Contemporary Fiction, but the cover REALLY drew me in, and I guess I was looking for something different, looking to expand my horizons if you will. :)
I was blown away by the sheer amazingness of that book. I stayed up until 3AM on a work day finishing this book! Where had it been all my life?!
Then, I dove right into Looking for Alaska by John Green after that and was a goner. Completely in love. LOVE, I TELL YOU!!
And that’s how I left the supernatural realm, folks! :)
This week’s question: …something new, an activity. We want to see what you look like! Take a pic with you and your current read! Too shy? Boo! Just post a fun pic you want to share.
