January 16, 2011 –1.7% "Catherine Howard has been arrested for treason, but I think not yet beheaded. The story begins as our heroine is one of 61 eligible noblewomen invited to dinner with "King-Henry the Eight of England" so he can peruse them and pick his next bride."
January 17, 2011 –29.46% "Not much of anything happening yet. Lots of dress up court stuff, but no meat on the bones."
January 17, 2011 –29.75% "William Parr "
January 17, 2011 –36.83% "Notes to self. The use of "Royal Decree" is overused to the point of being clubbed over the head with it. While Bess is definitely more likeable than the heroine of the last book, she also not terribly interesting. Also, I'm not picking up on the historical details of clothes, food, etc. like I did in book one."
January 17, 2011 –70.82% "Some real lost opportunities here, all that time spent with Bess stamping her feet wanting to be with her *twu wuv*, instead of us seeing the formidable woman she must have been in her later years :/"
January 18, 2011 –90.65% "Unfortunate that things in Bess' life get interesting so close to the end of the book :/"
