The Scorpio Races: Why You Need to Race to Get the Paperback

It’s probably safe to say that Maggie Stiefvater’s The Scorpio Races was one of our favorite books in the last couple years. When it came out, we had a lot of Maggie on the blog: a Facebook chat, a Show Us Your S(h)elves feature, the amazing book trailer she created—and why not? She’s awesome. Well, we weren’t the only ones to think so: Maggie received a Printz Honor for The Scorpio Races! The book has just come out in paperback and is being offered in TAB April.

Since we’ve discussed this book a lot before I won’t go into the plot, but what I will say is that if you’re a fan of The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, even Harry Potter, you have to read this book. Which isn’t to say that the plot is the same, but the magical realism, action, drama, and characters will all appeal to fans of those books and they will love The Scorpio Races.

Why would you care about the paperback of this page-turning thriller? I’ll tell you why. It comes with a ton of extras the hardcover didn’t have:

• A Q&A with Maggie and her awesome editor David Levithan

• Her Printz Honor speech

• Four (that’s right, FOUR!) extra chapters

• A recipe for the November Cakes that the hardcover didn’t have

Even if you’ve read the book already, there is a lot of extra content here for you that makes it well worth getting the paperback. If you haven’t read it yet…what are you waiting for?
