And guess who likes reading all that juicy drama? You got it, me! I think most people will agree that Kate is the most likable character out of the bunch. She does have her flaws, but I relate with her the most. Tommi was a little annoying at times. She was putting her dreams on hold for a guy.
Zara and I did NOT click at all. I just wanted to slap her silly most of the time. If you love horses and drama this is the book for you! Sorry US only. 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. I would also like to see them actually win something. Yes, they win, but we barely ever see it from that character's POV. We just hear a quick mention about stuff. Oh yes, btw I placed in this and that. Or I got this and that place. The barn sounds like an interesting place, though I am not sure if I would be there because of all the stress, all the drama that takes place there.
And while Jamie seems a bit bossy, he is kind, friendly, and he cares about his clients and their horses. All in all, this was a great book in this series, and I can't wait to buy the other 2 books and read them. I am curious to see how everything will continue, and I do hope we will see more competitions and horse stuff. Feb 28, Book Sp l ot rated it really liked it Shelves: own , release , series. Kate, Tommi and Zara are still very much involved in the horse world as riders on the A Circuit. Tommi has bought Legs, the horse she hopes to train and sell for a profit to prove to her billionaire father that she can make horses a true career, not just a hobby.
Kate is working harder than ever at the barn to be able to ride without a rich father or mother to pay her way. Zara, the wild daughter of a music celebrity, seems to finally be taking her riding seriously. What will happen when Tommi meets a new guy who convinces her to skip a horse show to come to his house party in the Hamptons instead?
Is Kate working a little too hard? Can she keep up a relationship with Fritz, her riding and all that she thinks she needs to do around the barn? And what of Zara? Can she continue to be dedicated to riding when her dad goes out of town and she gets a "nanny" who may be even more of a party girl than Zara? You'll have to read My Favorite Mistake to find out! I really enjoyed My Favorite Mistake. The few things about The A Circuit that kept me from really loving it - the fact that so many characters were touched on but readers never really got to know them and there seemed at least in memory to be a lot of drinking - were different in this second book.
We were able to really get to know the characters much better than in the first book and it helped both the story and my enjoyment of it. The horses and the shows are definitely still there and a very big aspect of the novel though I felt as if some of the terminology may have been cut back just a bit so readers looking for that need not worry.
We do get to see the more personal side of the shows, though. How Kate works to get things together for the different riders, what clothes are needed, how it affects their personal lives being committed to the shows for x number of days that week those sorts of things. While this book was a bit more tame in terms of some of their extracurricular activities and their legality , it does still have a bit of a Gossip Girl meets the horse world feel to it - which I suppose is only natural given the characters ages, locale and wealth.
This time, however, the book is much stronger than The A Circuit and I urge you to give it a try even if you were unsure after reading the first in this series. For some reason I kept doing that while reading this - and the first book! Jul 19, Lauren rated it liked it Shelves: netgalleybooks. After reading the fun and frothy The A Circuit, the prequel to My Favorite Mistake, I couldn't wait to see what was up next for Tommi, Zara, Fitz, and Kate, especially given where the last book left off!
It provided even more drama as well as intrigue and even some real live situations were thrown in. Basically, it was the perfect read for a quiet afternoon or evening!

My Favorite Mistake starts up shortly after the last book left up. The girls as well as their horses are training for even more horse shows while dealing with the many problems as well as fun that comes their way. In this addition, I really feel like the girl's grew as a characters. Zara became more than just a "party girl" when faced with the dilemma of what to do when her babysitter turns out to be even more wilder than she is.

Headstrong Tommi, on the other hand, deals with a new love, one that may provide a risk to her horse ridding career. Lastly, Kate is dealing with her own problems, which include her Mom's OCD ways, her developing relationship with Fitz, and much more. I came to like the girl's even more in this one, especially Zara, because not only were they fun, but they really managed to come off in a realistic way in this one. They made mistakes, they risked there futures for silly things, and they loved and learned The only aspect, I wasn't too big on in this one, was the lack of development into their friendship.
The girls didn't really spend too much time together in this one. Hopefully that will change in the next one! The plot in this one as much fun as the last one! It was interesting to find out more about the world of horse showing as well as the many preparations the girls have to do for it. I also enjoyed seeing the girl's everyday adventures as well as Kate's developing relationship with Fitz.
The ending of this one also provided me with enough juice and intrigue to be saying, "Where's the next one?! Georgina as well as Catherine did a fabulous job of blending the girl's POVs together as well as making sure they didn't overlap. Grade: B Dec 02, Katelyn rated it really liked it.
I have already read the previous book in this series and loved it, probably because of the horse aspect. At times the riders are all very superficial but you have to love them for their guts and own personalities. I like how this series tells the story of the three different girls, reading their different points of view was interesting. My favorite character, Kate, has been putting a lot I have already read the previous book in this series and loved it, probably because of the horse aspect.
My favorite character, Kate, has been putting a lot of pressure on herself and it brings a completely new element to the series. The friendship, or lack of, makes the drama quite spunky. In My Favorite Mistake Kate has been overwhelmed with her life at home and at the barn. She spends all her waking moments helping out Jamie, the head trainer, and then forgets to eat or just doesn't have time.
Her mother has OCD and Kate fears she will end up the same way so lots of things are on her mind besides the pressure of riding Fable, one of the horses Jamie has given her to ride for free. Zara still has a lot to learn about her new horse Ellie and is too stubborn to take any advice from Jamie. She is finally making some friends at the barn though. Tommi is under pressure from her father to sell Legs, her new prospect. She has an offer towards the end of the book but decides to keep him because she wants him to have the perfect home.
Fitz and Kate are now a thing and he keeps making big gestures toward her. Kate is confused but at the end of the book when he buys her another horse, she is delighted. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. It has all the parts of a good read, it can be very dramatic but the group of riders are very close and it makes the book personal.
I think this book is very relatable to teenagers because of the characters and where they are at in their lives.
Mar 03, Erica rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed the first book in this series, The A Circuit, but I wasn't absolutely blown away by it. I instantly was caught up in the story, and was so bummed when it had ended. I really just love the horse showing world in these books.

This made getting int I enjoyed the first book in this series, The A Circuit, but I wasn't absolutely blown away by it.
This made getting into the story and completely understanding what was going on so much easier in My Favorite Mistake. The plot was a lot of fun. I felt like the plot of My Favorite Mistake had a bigger focus around friendship, and that was really nice to see.
There are some new relationships that I am curious to see how they will pan out in future books. I really love the characters in this series. Kate and Tommi remain my two favorite characters of the books. They are both such goodhearted people and a ton of fun! It was nice to see more of some of the other characters, as well as a different side of some, like Zara.
I simply cannot wait for the next book in the series now.

This installment was so much fun to read, and I loved hearing more from the wonderful characters. I would really recommend My Favorite Mistake to anyone looking for a great story and a fast read. I am very excited to see more from this dynamic duo! Feb 12, Harmony rated it liked it. The A Circuit series is officially my guilty pleasure series. The authors truly hit their groove with this one, creating a novel that is fun and enjoyable while also hitting upon some tougher subjects.
I love this series because it plays into all the dreams I had when I was 12 — to ride horses competitively and spend almost every minute living and breathing horses. What I love even more is that while I don't r The A Circuit series is officially my guilty pleasure series. What I love even more is that while I don't really have any experience riding horses at all, let alone in such a competitive circuit, I am still able to relate to the characters.
So while this is aimed at horse-lovers, I think others will be able to enjoy it too. And while those things still happen in My Favorite Mistake, I felt they were handled so much better. I am looking forward to Book 3 where we hopefully get to see the characters go a little more in-depth with some things. Can't wait for Book 3! Jul 19, Eileen rated it really liked it. I read this book almost immediately after it came out and had some mixed feelings about it. For whatever reason, I thought it contained less horse-related scenes than in the first book, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

Tommi, with her entire future riding on one horse; Kate, because she's trying desperately not to end up like her mother and living in constant anxiety and self-doubt, running herself into the ground by working nonstop at the barn; Zara, because while she's got good intentions deep down, and is finally starting to take riding a bit more seriously, still has loads to learn about her newest partner, Ellie.
From her first ride on the mare she's been impatient and ignorant, especially to her trainer's warnings about Ellie's attitude.
My Favorite Mistake
She knows how to ride, but she needs her ego to be knocked down a couple of notches. She's definitely the character that irritates me the most, but I do like her spunk at times. I do recommend this series, more of a guilty pleasure than anything. It has good themes about teamwork, both on horse back and within the barn riders' dynamic, but is pretty superficial.
Mar 24, Gigi rated it it was amazing Shelves: 4th-quarter-reviews. I loved this book. It's about horseback riding, so I can connect to the characters. I don't recommend you read this book if you don't do horseback riding though, because it won't be interesting since you won't know what they're talking about. The story is about a girl named Kate, who's a very talented horseback rider, but doesn't have a lot of money like the others.
Kate is dating the "bad boy" at their barn, who will do anything to be with her.

Mar 21, Katie rated it liked it Shelves: read-in This is definitely one of those guilty pleasure books.
I'll keep reading the series for the entertainment value, however I do have a big problem with this book and the last one for that matter : I really dislike how the "cheaper" barn is portrayed as a place that cares less about their horses, that the girl training the horse at the less-elite barn is doing things wrong, and that she basically manhandles horses and isn't as good a rider as the other girls.
I hate this stereotype that people who This is definitely one of those guilty pleasure books. I hate this stereotype that people who don't show on the elite circuits are lesser riders than those who do. I think the authors would benefit from introducing a character who doesn't show or is in any way associated with the fancy show barn Apr 21, Miriam Cook rated it it was amazing. The series continues with this book and does not fail to disappoint. As I loved the first book this second book was no surprise that I loved it too.
The main character Kate is not focused on as much in this book as Zara is. Zara know as the wild child almost loses that reputation in this book. Both her parents leave her and she is left with her babysitter. But this babysitter is a pretty good actor and hides her real personality really well. How does crazy Zara handle it?
