The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Hey everybody! Cassia here! Umm I don't really have an intro for today, so here's another review for you all!

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Puck and her brothers live alone.  Their parents are dead, and for money, they do odd jobs--painting teacups, fixing things, anything to get food on the table.  When the Scorpio Races come around, Puck realizes that this is her chance to save her family.  But is she brave enough to ride one of the wild, carnivorous capaill uisce?

Sean Kendrick is known all over the island of Thisby as the boy whose father died in the Races, who has an incredible connection with all horses, and has won the Scorpio Races five times.  When he sees a girl on his beach, he has to know why.

Upcoming Release: Allegiant by Veronica Roth

On October 22nd the last book in the Divergent series will be released! Ever since Insurgent came out I could not wait to read the last book, Allegiant! I know it is going to be epic. According to Veronica herself this book will be in both Four's and Tris's perspectives. I am ecstatic about this and all of you who read Free Four probably are too. If you haven't read Free Four click here to read it.  

The spoilers start here, so those of you who have not read Insurgent please stop reading now.

Just in case you fourgot, (See what I did there?) Roth left us with a gut-wrenching cliffhanger in the last book. Apparently their whole city is just part of a plot to save mankind from themselves. Now they have to go out into the world and try to change human nature. I have no idea how they are going to do it, but I have faith.

The Man Painter by Melissa Turner Lee

Hey everybody! I know it's a little soon to be putting up a review of a sequel, but I couldn't help it and right now it's the only review I've got. I recently went to read Insurgent by Veronica Roth, but then I totally forgot what happened in Divergent. So I'm re-reading that now, and I forget who claimed it to review, but it's not me. Might be Max, actually. Without further ado, here's another review for you all!

The Man Painter by Melissa Turner Lee

 WARNING: This is the second book in the Painter Series. If you have not read the first book, The Earth Painter (click here for a review), I advise that you STOP READING NOW. Thank you!

It’s been two years since the old Chesnee high school blew up. And since Holly saw Theo. She’s tried to keep him out of her mind, and has even tried to move on, and even though she’s mostly succeeded, he’s still working his way into her thoughts. When Holly hears about ancient paintings of dinosaurs, she knows it has to be him. Who else could it be? Why would he be drawing attention to himself, anyway? He knows he’s not allowed to do that…

WARNING: This book contains sexual content. While it is not graphic, there are very clear suggestions of it.

The Earth Painter by Melissa Turner Lee

Hey everybody! Cassia here! A couple months ago, I received an ebook from someone on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review, and I finally got to reading it. I just finished it last night, so here's the review:

The Earth Painter by Melissa Turner Lee

***I received this as an ebook in exchange for an honest review***
Thank you again!

Holly’s mom wants her to be perfect. No, demands it. All to make Holly’s mom look good. When Theo pays attention to her, makes her feel loved, she can’t help but be drawn to him when no one else has ever looked at her like that. But when she finds out what he really is, and that he’s incapable of love, things get complicated, and she has no idea what to think. Does Theo love her? Or is it really impossible that he could ever love her?

Wow. That’s all I have to say. I started reading this, thinking it would be good. Boy, was I wrong. It was great! One of the best fantasy books I’ve read in a while.
