Waiting on Wednesday (54)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"The A Circuit"
by Catherine Hapka and Georgina Bloomberg
Bloomsbury
Release Date: May 24, 2011


The following description is from Goodreads.com:


The A Circuit is the top of the top when it comes to horse shows. It's a world with its own rules and superprivileged lifestyles. Teens travel the circuit all year, showing horses that cost as much as some homes.
Tommi, Kate, and Zara are all elite competitors on the circuit, but they come from totally different backgrounds. Tommi is a billionaire heiress trying to prove she has real talent (not just deep bank accounts). Kate puts the working in working student—every win has been paid for with hours of cleaning stalls. She's used to the grueling schedule, but Fitz, the barn's resident hot guy, is about to become a major distraction. And then there's Zara. She's the wild child of a famous rockstar, but she's ready to take riding seriously. Can a party girl really change her ways?
Readers who enjoy peeking into the elite world of Gossip Girl or The A-List will feel right at home in this new series with its friendships, drama, and privilege set against the backdrop of competitive horseback riding.

The reason this book caught my attention is the cover. It's beautiful, I'll pick up anything with a horse on the cover :) We see horseback riding a lot in younger children's and middle grade books, but you don't see it much in YA, I think it'll be an interesting book!

What are you waiting for this week??

I just love horses as well, and I can see why it caught your eye!!!

I love the beautiful cover, too. I like horses. I'm short so I never felt comfortable riding one. I always wished I could. I recently watched Secretariat. It's great! This book sounds really interesting because it's different and fresh. Great pick!

Great pick! I've never heard of this one, but it does sound good. A lot of my students love horses! This may be a good one for my classroom. Thanks for sharing!

Ooh I agree I like the cover and I'm not a fan of Gossip Girl type books but the setting of Horseback riding has me interested. I might have to give this book a try.
