Because I’m a sucker for a time-wasting meme…

…and because I started a short story earlier and the main character is still suspended upside-down in midair over a roller coaster, trailing a vomit comet…and I’m not sure what happens next.

Day 01 – The Best Book You Read Last Year –

That is a toughie. I read a lot of good books last year. I’m gonna go with The Scorpio Races, by Maggie Stiefvater (it seems to be a very Maggie day here at “Brushes and Pens”). Here is my Amazon review, which was slightly more informative than what I posted here:

The Scorpio Races is far and away Maggie Stiefvater’s best book to date. Pitch perfect from beginning to end, it lacks for nothing. Like any Stiefvater novel it is savage, beautiful, subtle, and unpredictable. Not only are main characters Puck and Sean deftly characterized and fully realized, so are a dozen or more secondary and tertiary characters. This is a book for anyone whohas ever had a family, been in love with anything or anyone (romantic or otherwise), taken a great risk, or hoped to do any of the above. This novel will scare you, make you angry, make you ache…the reading experience becomes more intense with each turn of the page, but you will dread the end. I cannot wait to see what the author writes next.

Note: I am not saying this is a perfect book, but I loved it a lot. It was just the kind of book I like to read (and Maggie drew a horsie in my copy). Also, I may be alone on this, but I hate the cover. It makes me think of John Grisham novels.
