Bookworm1858 - I always love the sound of Kenneally’s books but I had really strong negative reactions to the first two so I’m unlikely to try this one-I don’t want to read something that might make me angry but I’m glad you loved it!

elena - one day, i shall finally give these books a shot! i like what you said about how this is more grown up because they really do sound more mature than typical teens. i used to LOVE reading about horses when i was younger (like saddle club) so yay for horses in the story. thanks for your review!

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Estelle, this review makes me want to pick up this entire series this very second! I’m seriously loving the sound of these characters- I think I would be able to relate to them so well. I love how they’re actually mature, and how Savannah is dedicated, but in a different way. I think that would make me immediately like her. I think I would also like Jack a lot- because it can be such a struggle to get taken seriously as a high schooler (I’ve experienced this many times while book blogging, actually). People tend to make these generalizations, and thus, treat you the same, even though you’re different from other kids your age. I can relate on so many levels.

I also love how you pointed out your love for some of the secondary characters- this makes me very excited for the fact that we get a ton of secondary character development! I’ve always loved seeing that in books.

Lovely review, Estelle! <3

Alexa Y. - I am SO excited about Racing Savannah, particularly after hearing you rave about it on Twitter. I just caught up on the Hundred Oaks series this year, but I love it dearly and cannot wait to meet Savannah!

Hannah - This made me so happy to read. I love Miranda Kenneally so much, and while Catching Jordan will always hold a special place in my heart, Racing Savannah comes in at a close second =) I love that you say reading Miranda Kenneally is like sitting down to coffee with an old friend. It’s so true.

Tammy - I’ve only read the first book Catching Jordan and I loved it. I need to catch up with the rest of the series.

Giselle - So happy you loved it! Savannah was such an easy to like character and I was kind of fascinated by the horse topics as well as the whole live-in maids (pretty rare around here). Great review, Estelle! 🙂

Amy @ bookgoonie - Me & The Kid can’t wait to read the newest addition to the series.
