@SERIESous_Book_Reviews You know, I didn't love Maggie's Wolves of Mercy Falls either. I only read Shiver and never felt the need to continue. So I almost skipped Scorpio Races, but thanks to a friend's recommendation, I picked it up and it's now one of my all-time favorite books! The writing and story is just gorgeous, though I know one of the bigger criticisms is that Scorpio is a bit too slow to start. It didn't bother me, but it might help to know that it's an atmospheric book going into it. Hope you love it!!
As for the Raven Cycle, I think the summaries for the books don't necessarily communicate their appeal because they are weird books! It's hard to put into words what the story is about. I'm not even totally sure, and I've read them! I just know that I adore everything about the series, especially the characters, and I'll follow them anywhere. So maybe if you're more curious in the future about the series, here's my endorsement.
