Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read,
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!

(Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!),

Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

Nefertiti by Michelle Moran

Page 210

"And before the Elder was even cold in his tomb, Akhenaten and Nefertiti knelt before the alter that had once been Amun's, and Panahesi annointed them Pharaoh and Queen of all Egypt. I sat in the first row in lapis and gold, and while choirs of boys raised their sweet voices to the sun, all across Thebes Pharaoh's army defaced images of our greatest gods."

I didn't think I would enjoy this book much (I'm reading it for a book club, and I didn't select it), but I am thoroughly enjoying this! Drama, romance, betrayal, history. It's got it all!
