A belated ARC, this was an unexpected joy to read!

19-year-old Lara applies to enter a 1000 mile horse race, across #Mongolia on a whim, at the very last minute. Her energy & enthusiasm shine through, & her appreciation for how ridiculous the whole thing was made me laugh.

It‘s a quick, light read, sometimes overwritten, but I enjoyed her musings & admired her scatty determination. Plus, I‘ve come away with some Mongolian authors to investigate.

Librarybelle Oh! Finding new authors to explore is the best! 2y

rockpools @Librarybelle It really is! 2y
eraderneely I liked this a lot at the beginning, but once she‘s deep into the race and just relaying her thinking...I did NOT care for her musings, haha. 2y
rockpools @eraderneely That‘s fair enough! It‘s all a bit random and she comes across as being Very Very Young at times - I expect my enthusiasm for it would have warn off if it had been longer, but I smiled all the way through. 2y
rockpools @eraderneely Ha ha! Fair enough- I‘d probably have got tired of her random nonsense if it had gone on longer, but as it was she kept me smiling all the way through. 2y
LibrarianRyan Nice! 2y

This was fun! I could have done without the love triangle, but I liked the characters and the fast moving plot. Can‘t wait to pick up the sequel.

This was a really cute story! January Andrews is a romance book author who still believes in happily ever after, even when her life doesn't go the way she expected. Augustus Everett, her literary rival, believes the opposite. #Booked2020 #NewIn2020
