The book this week if Nefertiti by Michelle Moran. I like the book. As I have liked other books by Moran. But I do not like Nefertiti in the book. She is a bit of a witch.


He was taller than any Pharaoh that had come before him, and there was more gold on his arms than in my parents’ entire treasury in Akhmim. The priests of Amun filed through the crowd, taking their places on the dais next to me, their bald heads like newly polished brass in the sun.

I have a feeling I might like this book. I enjoy novels that are based on real people or events. Plus I love Egyptian mythology.

I love that description -- "bald heads like newly polished brass in the sun." So if the rest of the book is as well done, I'd love it.
A RELIABLE WIFE is featured on my blog today.
