Library Loot - August 5

Library Loot is hosted each week by Marg of Reading Adventures and Eva from A Striped Armchair.

I find it a neat thing to participate in because I like to see what people are borrowing from the library (and it encourages me to borrow books, rather than buy them).

I've only got the one book out this week:

Michelle Moran product description:
Nefertiti and her younger sister, Mutnodjmet, have been raised in a powerful family that has provided wives to the rulers of Egypt for centuries. Ambitious, charismatic, and beautiful, Nefertiti is destined to marry Amunhotep, an unstable young pharaoh. It is hoped that her strong personality will temper the young ruler’s heretical desire to forsake Egypt’s ancient gods.

From the moment of her arrival in Thebes, Nefertiti is beloved by the people but fails to see that powerful priests are plotting against her husband’s rule. The only person brave enough to warn the queen is her younger sister, yet remaining loyal to Nefertiti will force Mutnodjmet into a dangerous political game; one that could cost her everything she holds dear.
I've been hearing quite a lot of good things about Michelle Moran on the blogs I follow, and, given how much I enjoyed reading Hand of Isis, I'm on a bit of an Egypt kick right now, so it is a good time to try a new author. Especially, with the newest book by Michelle Moran coming out next month: Cleopatra's Daughter.

Like you, I only took one book out this week as well, but that's because I stocked up in previous weeks. I haven't read Moran, but do know it made the rounds among book bloggers and from what I recall, most people seemed to like it. So hopefully you will to.

Thanks Blodeudd.

Justareadingfool, sometimes fewer is better. I'm certainly hoping to like this book. Thanks for stopping by with a comment.

Thanks for letting me know how much you enjoyed her books, Marg and Lezlie.

The more you guys say how good she is, the more excited I get about reading this one.

(still have to finish reading Defenders of the Faith and Order in Chaos first though).
