Yep!  Two more Horse Diaries and the last one on the way.  I’ll give you a short summary of each one.

Golden Sun is about a snowflake Appalousa horse.  He lives with the Nez Perce Indians, and his owner is a boy named Little Turtle.  He finds a friend in Dancing Feather, a skittish, but beautiful filly.  After a riding accident, Dancing Feather’s owner becomes sick.  Will Golden Sun and Little Turtle be able to save their friend?  Read this book by the illustrator’s daughter, Whitney Sanderson to find out.

Risky Chance is about a sleek and fast Thoroughbred.  He wins many races, but injures his leg racing against Seabiscuit at the Santa Anita Handicap.  Even though his leg seems to heal, it never really does, and he is forced to run in claim races, going from one owner to the other.  But is there hope at the end of this dark tunnel?  This is one of the best Horse Diaries, so be sure to read it!


Look out for…the Horse Diaries!

I got a $10 gift card to Chapters today, so I went to Chapters, naturally! 🙂  I got two books in a wonderful series called Horse Diaries.  They’re basically stories of different breeds told by the horses point of view, first person.  I haven’t had time to read them yet, but watch out for a post about them coming up!

Horse Diaries #6: Yatimah

Horse Diaries #2: Bell's Star

The Black Stallion Returns

I went to a used bookstore yesterday, and found this book on the shelves, and took it home.


The story begins when a mysterious stranger tries to inject the Black with poison.  The very next day, Sheik Abu Ja Ben Ishak shows up, claiming the Black as his own.  When he leaves for Arabia with the Black, Alec decides to follow him with Henry.  Will Alec ever see the Black again?
