All Horses All The Time, Even Horse Books!
If you aren’t into horses or fiction, this reading list probably isn’t going to do much for you! This month, I was still on a horse fiction kick so that is what I read about!

Noble Dreams Series-Book 5- Course Perfect
Course perfect is the story of everyone that we have met throughout the series at the end of the show season. Each book features one character in the series. The books do stand alone. This last one though you will enjoy more if you have read the previous books.
How Were They?
I liked the Thornhouse Stud story better than the Noble Dreams Series. I felt like the Thornhouse Stud story got more into depicting each of the individual horses. You learned just as much about the horses in the books as you do the humans. That’s my kind of book!
The Noble Dreams series were easy reads. The books were interesting. It was cool how each book was looking at the Noble Dreams Farm from the eyes of a different woman who was boarding there. The characters were super close in the books. It was like they had a “barn family”. Which added to the cool dynamic of each book being from someone else’s view.
If you like horsey fiction, this month’s books I think you will find worth the read!
