Fierce Kingdom takes place over a span of three tense hours, which was about the time it took me to read the book. Though I can't say that I was hooked from the very first page, once I was hooked, I couldn't put the book down. The need to know the outcome kept me turning pages even during the slow part in the middle.
Reading progress will be updated regularly here.
This summer I decided that I was going to great a seasonal (3 month long) TBR, and I loved the outcome and effect it had on my reading. So I have decided to continue with a Fall list!

There are 27 books on my Summer TBR - check out the list, and follow my progress right here. Books Read So Far: 13/27 + 7 Books not on the list
This summer I decided to play with the idea of a quarterly reading list. My first list may seem a bit ambitious (almost 30 books), but the intent isn't that I have to read all of the books on the list. It's not that kind of challenge. The idea is that it's long enough that it should last the whole summer and it has enough variety built in that it should cover at least a jumping off point for any reading mood I may find myself in.

Until one tiny, damp little island says 'no'. 'No. Not here.' A mouse in front of a lion. You're amazing, the lot of you.… Continue reading Doctor Who Wednesdays # 45 on Friday
