Nefertiti: A Novel | Michelle Moran
post image
Pickpick

Moran has taken what we know about Nefertiti & the 18th Dynasty to create a novel full of political intrigue with alliances that change suddenly whilst people are ruled by a zealous Pharaoh & narcissistic Queen. I was swept away by this book as Mutnodjmet recounts her time living in the shadow of Nefertiti; her innocence offers a balanced view to the cruelty of royalty & politics.

JaneyWaneyB I couldn't fit in everything I wanted to say about this book so a few more comments from me...Moran uses description to help the reader imagine the beauty & culture of ancient Egypt. A must-read for anyone with a fondness for Ancient Egypt & a time we can only dream of. 3w
Crazeedi How funny, I just ordered this book!! Glad you liked it, can't wait to read 2w
JaneyWaneyB @Crazeedi I hope you enjoy it I couldn't put it down 2w

Trying to keep cool on this August Bank Holiday, it's hit 30°c which for us Brits is a tad warm😓 but I've solved it...find a spot by the fan and read the afternoon away.

This book is good so far, I never knew Nefertiti was so manipulative and politically minded even at the age of 16. Hearing the story from the younger sister, Mutnodjmet, offers an innocence to the tale but how long till she is corrupted by the court?

#staycationintimeswap collage of awesomeness #3
@Gissy I am blown away by the generosity and thoughtfulness you have shown me (and @cobwebmoth ) in this swap. Thank you for the lovely card. The Viking ship art print is beautiful! I also love the print of San Juan by a local artist. I'll be framing both of them. The Poe pouch is great as well! This has really brightened my day! I love all of it! You are the swap Queen! Thank you so much!

Gissy I'm so happy you liked everything! I tried to put everything in those 2 boxes☺️I thought Vikings could be a different topic. I tried to match the topic with the books and bookish items. There are some titles there that I added to my wish list. I hope both of you like our coffee. Now, enjoy your reading! 🤗 1mo

More great books! I've been wanting to read some of these for a while now. The sketch book and drawing set will be put to good use, and I love the Viking print on the journal! I love the design on the tote! I'm definitely going to use that when I'm working at the renaissance festival this fall.
Ok. @Gissy the clock is awesome...really, really awesome! I'm trying to figure out where to hang it now.

Chrissyreadit Amazing!!!! 😍 1mo

@Gissy you went above and beyond for this swap! The Viking and Celtic theme was a great choice. I loved the books, snacks, and the awesome Viking warrior mug! My TBR has grown yet again! There was so many great items that a single collage post couldn't even begin to contain the awesomeness!
