    1 thought on “Wednesday Riders

    1. (I tried to remain as spoiler-free as possible, but beware!)I'm always nervous for sequels, especially since I loved Appaloosa Summer so much. But I shouldn't have worried -- Wednesday Riders was just as lovely, well-paced, and achingly wonderful as its predecessor.We pick right back up with our two main lovebirds, who are back for another exciting summer back on the island with their horse and human friends, old and new. Until The Boy drops a bombshell, which I actually did not see coming. It w [...]

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed this follow-up to Appaloosa Summer. Sequels are always a precarious thing, especially when you love the first book so much, but Wednesday Riders did not disappoint. I loved going back to the island and seeing the characters again, as well as meeting several new characters who were all very well-drawn, each with their own nuances and complications. Tudor's books never give you what you are expecting, but the reading experience is all the richer for that. And although there we [...]

    3. This is somewhere between a 2.5 and 3 for me. Not as good as the first, for several reasons. The main one was teen love-life drama. I get there has to be some conflict, but really. This took the characters and twisted them too much for me. Also, there needs to be more with the horses! It always felt like they were a side story, and not a focus point. It's an ok read, but not great. If you like lots of drama you might enjoy this more than I did. Full review will be up February 17th: courtneysread [...]

    4. Edit 17/09/15: huh. I reread Appaloosa Summer and Wednesday Riders and actually enjoy Wednesday Riders a lot more than the first time I read it! I don't know, the first time I read this book I thought that the grief and drama was a little heavy handed, but on my reread I actually really enjoyed these elements and didn't think they were heavy handed at all. I guess I'm raising my rating from 3 stars to 4 okay, maybe even 4.5. Also I listened to Taylor Swift's 1989 album obsessively while rereadin [...]

    5. I read book one of this series (Appaloosa Summer) and instantly fell in love with the characters. There was no cliffhanger at the end of book one, but for me, I just had to read book two.Wednesday Riders brought conflict between the characters. Jared might have ruined his relationship with Meg and Meg doesn’t help the situation at all. I hoped, more than wondered, all the way through that everything would sort itself out in the end.Lacey – I can’t decide if she would be a great friend to h [...]

    6. I loved this book, just like l loved the first book in the series. There is just something about Tudor's writing style that I can't get enough of. It's peaceful, or maybe that's just the laid-back island setting, but these books are so wonderful to read, so relaxing. And yet there is plenty happening. I love Meg - she seems so confident. Oh she reacts, but she also thinks. She's not stupid nor does she creat unnecessary angst. I was a littled worried when I started this book. Having loved the fi [...]

    7. I received a copy through Netgalley. Wednesday riders by tudor robins is the second book in the island trilogy. this story takes place in the summer after appaloosa summer. Meg is excited for the summer to begin so she can go back to the island and finally be back close to Jared. But the summer quickly changes when Jared tells Meg some news that will break her heart. This summer will follow Meg as she tries to make the best out of it and throws her some unexpected curves. Tudor robins brings bac [...]

    8. Oh man I was so excited about this book and it was good, sad and horses were awesome. Then there was one unclean moment. I would let it go but it almost felt like it was not needed like some swear words. Like having a cool glass of water given to a parched, sweat drooping person, then they take and drop one drop of toilet water in. Gah!!! I hate that! I would worry about teens reading it for that one revenge spot in the book. Personally I would not let my girls read it till they were over 18 or [...]

    9. This author really knows how to grab ahold of you and not make you want to put the book down!! Absolutely enjoyed it!!

    10. I loved Appaloosa Summer, the first in Tudor Robins’ Island Trilogy. Reading Wednesday Riders was the obvious choice for me after such a strong first book, and I have to say that it didn’t disappoint.(Some spoilers, so proceed with caution!)In this installment we find Meg Traherne newly graduated from high school. She’s been accepted to college, owns a new horse, and is still in love with island dreamboat, Jared. Things appear to be going swimmingly, and Meg can’t wait to get back to the [...]

    11. In ‘Wednesday Rivers’ we meet Meg a year later than when ‘Appaloosa Summer’ ended. Everything is going perfect for Meg. She finished high school, her and Jared are still going strong and now a new summer at the Island is ready to start. But unfortunately for Meg things don’t often stay perfect for long. When she arrives at the Island she soon finds out that her expectations are set a little too high and her summer will go a very different way.Since I loved ‘Appaloosa Summer’ my exp [...]

    12. I suppose this falls into the Young Adult genre but can't be sure as I don't often read this type of novel. It's also an innocent romance. Bring in horses, a group of four 13 year old girls and you have 'Wednesday Riders'. I always have a difficulty with these sort of novels as the characters seem to take the ups and downs of life so personally, as if the world is conspiring against them, as if they have been chosen to suffer heartache whilst all around them live in an idyll. The boys are 'cute' [...]

    13. 4.5 stars -- I was lucky enough to receive an ecopy of this book from the author!!This was a SOLID followup to the first book -- both books felt very much like coming-of-age tales, but this one was NOT a repeat of the first book. This was Meg growing even more, struggling with new and different challenges. From the synopsis, I knew this was going to be a hard book to take, and I wasn't disappointed. Ms. Robins gives us heartbreak, but it's so real and multi-dimensional and takes us through the r [...]

    14. I expected to like all the horsey detail in the story, and I did, so it's a good follow-up to Appaloosa Summer. However the rule is that you can't tell a good story about someone being entirely happy. Meg starts out with a new mare, a graduation and prom to attend, a summer of work on her favourite island to look forward to and a fine boyfriend. She can't have all of them.The teenage girl carries a lot of responsibility well, but hasn't learned about a personal life yet, so she over-reacts when [...]

    15. This'll be another great summer read, although I enjoyed reading it in this weird transition between winter and spring. Wednesday Riders was a cute sequel to Appaloosa Summer, and it includes everything you'd want and expect out of a sequel. These books bring me back to the days I read nothing but middle grade series about horses - except if course that AS and WR are YA. I really liked how the relationship drama, while there, wasn't the main solo plot of the book. It really helped when I got all [...]

    16. I won this book on First Reads. This book was very exciting, well paced and captivating to me. This is a story about a girl named Meg who comes back to this island every summer. Her long time boyfriend Jared is away at college and she can't wait to get to the island to see him again and her new mare. Everything is perfect until Jared confesses to her what he did while he was at college. There relationship is like a roller coaster and is up and down. She meets a young man named Adam and has some [...]

    17. This book starting by taking the story in a direction that I would have never seen coming. After reading Appaloosa Summer I would have never thought that Jared and Meg would break up. I had a WTF kind of moment when Jared told Meg he'd cheated on her. When Meg met Adam I did hope that they would start something and she would be able to forget Jared and move on, but as the book went on I missed Jared I think as much as Meg did. I also felt a strong pull towards Bridget. I thought she was a comple [...]

    18. Guys, this book was great! I sat down and finished it in one sitting. I devoured it and couldn't put it down!I dove into this book without reading the synopsis, so I had NO idea what the issue could possibly be. I start this book and Meg is getting ready for prom and is SO nervous and excited about seeing Jared. Prom ends up getting derailed though when Meg's horse, Jessie gets colic. Jessie ends up being okay, and Meg is so excited for her summer on the island with Jared. The only problem? Jare [...]

    19. I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book from the author and was so excited to read it because I loved Appaloosa Summer so much. This book definitely did not disappoint and had all of my favorite characters from book 1 along with a few new ones. It also had all of the magic that the first book had with regard to the setting. I love how vividly I can picture the horses and the island and farms. I knew that this book was going to have some drama in it but I wasn't quite prepared for it to [...]

    20. Jared Strickland, Meg Traherne’s boyfriend from Appaloosa Summer (book 1 in the trilogy), broke her heart. He confesses that while he was away at college, he kissed someone else. Meg had returned to Carl and Betsy’s B&B on the island in St. Lawrence River anxious to spend the whole summer with him. Now, she’s not sure what to do. On a sideline to the story, Meg coaches a group of young girls for a musical ride contest.This second book is not as much about Meg and her new mare, but more [...]

    21. Nice sequel, and a painful summer. We've all made mistakes like Meg's, and we've all learned from them one way or another. Just like a couple of the other characters in the book, I *so* wanted to shake some sense into Meg - and Jared too. Not a spoiler, since the book practically opens with it, but it started with Jared's confession and then me shouting at her, "Hey, Meg! He just told you! Don't you know how rare that is? Don't you know how much of a decent guy that makes him? Hey!" but she's no [...]

    22. This is a teen story about teens and horses. It is book two of a series. In the previous book Meg and Jared meet in a small community where everyone knows everyone else. The two have a perfect relationship, as I recall. Here the relationship falters and it takes the whole book to fix it. Meanwhile some younger teens convince Meg to coach them for some horse-riding competition. There was a lot of unfamiliar equestrian terminology, but I just skimmed over it. I enjoyed visiting with the characters [...]

    23. Any horse lover will enjoy thisShe's just broken up with Jared because he has admitted to having kissed another girl while at the university. She has committed to helping Betsy and Carl for another summer at the B and B. Meg doesn't know how she will spend her free time when she decides to learn to sail. Enter Adam, a group of four girl riders and a musical drill team on horseback.

    24. I read "Appaloosa Summer" first and loved it so much I purchase "Wednesday Riders". "Wednesday Riders" did pull me in a quickly as the first book did but I still loved it. The characters are so true to life and I love the horses. I highly recommend both books. I'm waiting for the third book in this series. I hope, it's release soon!

    25. This wasn’t as amazing as the first book, but it was good nonetheless. It keeps you guessing what is going to happen throughout. I don’t want to say much more, because I don’t want to give away the book. Overall, it was a good book! I don’t know what I was expecting, but it was still good!!! I would highly recommend reading this book!

    26. I really wanted to give this book five stars, and maybe I would have if the first book hadn't been over-the-top wonderful. There are many of the same good aspects to this book, but its feel was more typical YA-angst rather than the magical summery feel of book one. Still looking forward to the conclusion of the trilogy, though!

    27. I received this book through a First Reads Giveaway, but this an honest and accurate review. It is a wonderful sweet romance. I was sitting in a restaurant when I was reading about Jared telling Meg his secret. Everyone was looking at me funny, and I realized tears were flowing down my cheeks. It was a realistic story of romance and young love.

    28. Just as good as the first onepossibly even better.Tudor Robins managed another emotionally charged plot. The book starts with a bang, an event I never expected. Again, superbly written, it was a book I could not put down.
