Mary Pat | 2186 comments Suggested break down of reading so that you can check in and let us know how you're doing. The following breakdown is purely a suggestion and is therefore not set in stone.

Rather than putting dates for each section I've done it so that it takes into account that not everybody will necessarily have the book at the same time.

Week 1: 91
Week 2: 91
Week 3: 91
Week 4: 91

Ilona | 4222 comments Has anyone already started reading this book? I have just started Middlesex, but it is next on my list!

SarahKat | 3447 comments I'm just starting this today. May has been a difficult month for me so I'm behind on my reading.

Ilona | 4222 comments Me too! May has been crazy, but I am positive that I can finish Middlesex today and start reading The Girl in the Tower!

Ilona | 4222 comments I started reading last weekend, but have only just reached the part where Vasya encounters the first village. The pace is higher in this book compared to The Bear and The Nightingale, but so far I am not enjoying it as much as that book.
Then again, I am only just at the beginning of the story. Hopefully, I have some more time to read this weekend!

I was a bit hesitant about this book in the beginning, but enjoyed the second part much more! Will definitely read The Winter of the Witch when it comes out in January 2019!

SarahKat | 3447 comments I think I have less than 100 pages left. I agree with you Ilona. It was pretty slow to get into at the beginning even though there was more action than in the first one. I'm pretty intrigued now though. I should finish by tomorrow.

Mary Pat | 2186 comments FYI, the third book, The Winter of the Witch, is not due out until January 2019. I will keep it on my tracking list and check back in when it is available.

I thought most of the book was too slow and having naught to do with the main plot and then the end just sort of happened. I didn't like it as much as the first one for sure.

I agree Kristin. Yes I'll finish it. I'm enjoying it enough and I want to see how everything turns out.
