30 Day Challenge- Day 1


Day 1 Challenge:
FAVORITE BOOK YOU READ LAST YEAR


I read a lot of amazing books last year but my favorite would have to be Michelle Moran's The Heretic Queen (my review here).

This book aroused in me an even deeper love for historical fiction. I love the time period and I love learning about Egypt. After I read this and Moran's Cleopatra's Daughter, I was obsessed with any show on TV having to do with Egypt. Nat Geo got a work out on my DVR!

Have you read The Heretic Queen? What was your reaction to the book? Are you a fan of Michelle Moran?

  3. I haven't read The Heretic Queen but I did read Cleopatra's Daughter and I loved it! I couldn't stop reading and I loved learning so much about that time period.
    I'm definitely a fan of Michelle Moran :)

  4. Kathy- I hope you read and like it!

    Heidenkind- I am seriously jealous. Maybe you can send it to me when you finish? :D

    Sharli- I personally liked The Heretic Queen even better than Cleopatra's Daughter, though I gave them both 5 stars. Moran is awesome!

  5. Ancient Rome, Greece and History is one of my favorite time period for historical fiction (18th-19th century France), it's a shame I haven't read Morgan yet!

  6. I haven't read The Heretic Queen, and probably won't, because historical fiction just isn't something that interests me that much, but I've read so many great reviews about it, I admit I've been tempted to pick it up!
