books, reviews,

My fascination with horses started when I visited Quezon province all those many years ago, people have horses tied in their backyards all around. If I can afford it then, I would’ve probably bought myself one! Horses are such fascinating, gentle creatures that I am always in awe whenever I see one in the zoo or last year, when we just hailed a horse-driven carriage when we got out of Manila Ocean Park, just because. It was an experience worth having. The little man is just as fascinated with the horse as I was.

Having said that, I guess it won’t be surprising that I’d also jump at any books with horses in them + enjoy reading them, too! Just like this one from M. Garzon, Blaze of Glory.

books, review

The gripping novel about horses, love, and the passions that consume us.

It is a YA novel best suited for girls 14 year + up {never you mind the book cover}. A well-written + beautifully-crafted story, that I bet you won’t notice you’ve read all the 300+ pages in such a short time! The novel tells about the beautiful story of Tea, who lives in a ranch with her step-father, her dreams and aspirations, her budding love affair with Jaden + the love affair with horses, of course!

A synopsis:

Last year, I had it all. Two jumpers on the show circuit, a lot of wins, and a lot of attention – the good kind. But now I have nothing. My life is circling the drain. The only spark of light that exists for me is my new, forbidden passion. If my stepfather finds out, he will kill me. My twin brother, my only blood relative in the world, has already begged me not to. But I can’t help myself. If it can’t be horses, it has to be this…

I give this book a two thumbs up! + don’t just take my word for it. Check out + read the first 10 pages here to see what I am raving about. You can also buy it here {+ did I tell you the Kindle/ebook version of the book has gone on sale in anticipation of the release of the sequel! :)}
