The Scorpio Races
Why this book?
I read this book 3-4 times, I forget, that’s how much I love this creepy story. I am a writer who actually doesn’t hold onto books. I believe in sharing them, especially with reluctant readers. But I have a small bookshelf where I keep my favorites, the ones I’ve read twice and probably will again. To me this book is sort of a mix of Far and Away (the movie with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman) meets Jaws, except instead of a shark, there are creepy, man-eating horses! Set on the coast of Ireland. Not super detailed in the gore, but enough to lead your imagination to a scary place! I love the atmosphere of this story and the Celtic elements. Plus there is a sweet, G-rated romance. Love this! I think I’ll go read it again!
