Blaze of Glory
This is one of the best books I have read! A cross between a horse book and a love story, I couldn't put it down.
Tea has suffered a horrible tragedy and now her life is spiraling out of control. Then she falls for her cousin Jaden. Although he makes her happy, it's creating new problems within her family.
I learned a little about polo and I loved the horses but it's a great story even if you aren't horsecrazy.
This book was very well written, and I stayed up late reading it. As soon as I finished, I looked for the next book. It's not out yet so I started reading Blaze of Glory again. I can't wait for the next one!
Warning: This book is for girls at least age 15 years or older. Some parts are not appropriate for younger girls.
Look Twice by M. Garzon
What can I say? I have probably read Look Twice 17 times now and each time it gets better and better. Unlike many writers whose second books are not as good as the first, I easily liked this one just as much as the first book Blaze of Glory. (I’ve read Blaze of Glory too many times to keep count.) I couldn’t wait to read this sequel and it definitely lived up to my expectations.
As soon as she sent me the book to review I read it in one sitting. And then I read it a bunch of times after that. Yes it’s that good.
This book continues the original story which involves a girl named Tea and her boyfriend Jayden who is much older - and her cousin. (It’s complicated.) I recommend you read the books in order so you really understand what is going on.
Tea is a competitive rider and this book tells about how she is starting to train her new horse. It also includes the story of her brother who is making some major life decisions.
The first book Blaze of Glory was definitely a young adult book and had some parts that weren’t appropriate for all ages. This one not so much, but I’d still recommend it for older girls not younger readers.
I am serious when I say that M. Garzon is one of my favorite authors and I think her books are just awesome. I hear they are going to make a television program about the series and I can’t wait for that either. I hope you’ll check out Blaze of Glory and Look Twice and let me know what you think!
