My Favorite Mistake: an A Circuit Novel By:Georgina Bloomberg & Catherine Hapka

Wednesday, March 14, 2012
Tommi, Zara, and Kate are all elite riders on the A Circuit. Tommi, the billionaire heiress, is training a young horse to prove she can make horses a real career. But when her new beau, Alex, convinces her to skip a horse show to party in the Hamptons, the results could be disastrous. Zara, the celebutante wild child, is finally taking her riding seriously. Until the new "nanny" her dad hires threatens to upstage Zara's party girl status. Then there's Kate. She doesn't have money to burn like the others, but she does have Fitz, the barn's resident hot guy. But when the pressure of being a working student builds, Kate's perfectionist tendencies threaten to get in the way of her relationship and her riding.

Readers who are growing out of the Canterwood Crest series or searching for an A-list fix have found just what they're looking for in the A Circuit series.

Goodreads Summary

Tommi,Zara, and Kate try to balance their love of horses, competitions, friends,boyfriends, family, work, and shopping. In this second book in the series, Tommi has a new boyfriend who doesn’t always help her make the best decisions; sometimes "catty" Zara deals with the annoyance of having a “babysitter” who turns out to be less responsible than she is; and, Kate learns that friends want to help her balance work and her health.  The reader will love getting to know these dynamic and interesting characters.  The author can really make the reader care what the characters do in the novel and how their decisions play out. 

Who doesn’t love horses?  Although I know something about horses, showing, jumping, and stables, I learned something from the descriptions of riding and caring for horses in this book.  I loved that Kate found a potential ride, one that might rival her wealthy friends’ mounts, in a small country stable.  The descriptions of the horses and environment can really make the book come alive for the reader. I don’t usually watch the teen/young adult TV dramas, but My Favorite Mistake reminds me of series like “Gossip Girl” and “Pretty Little Liars”.
