You're giving away Cleopatra's Daughter! I read your review a little while ago and I would love to read the book.

Reasons: You mention meticulous research in your review of CD. I love Roman times, but always feel cheated if the novel makes silly mistakes.

In your review of Nefertiti you mention how the reader is drawn in to experience emotions with the character. That's always good in a book.

And in your Heretic review, you mention the character's morality - food for thought, another reason I want to read these.

I thought it was very interesting that Nefertiti is about her sister and that it is her first book.

I like how you really connected to the characters in THe Heretic Queen.

I have been wanting to read Celopatra's Daughter since hearing great things. It has to be good when you sped right through it with a 5 week old baby!

Cleopatra's Daughter:
you mentioned..."a reader gets to travel from Egypt to Rome and become immersed in the lives of historical figures in a way intangible before."

I love history books

Nefertit:
"I remember learning things about Egypt and Mummies in elementary school, but not much since then and this book was a good little history lesson as well as a good novel."
Mummies and Egypt are really interesting to learn about

The Heretic Queen:
" I giggled with her, and I became enraged at her enemies. I felt empathy for her situations and I praised her for her morality and decisions for love instead of revenge. "
I love books that can be gotten into emotionally.

I'd love to win this book thanks.

Nefertiti: I think that the relationship between Nefertiti and her sister sounds fascinating. Also, it makes me want to read it because I had never even heard of Nefertiti's sister.

The Heretic Queen: You mentioned that this book has a lot of historical value, which attracts me to the book because I love historical fiction.

Cleopatra's Daughter: the list of elements included in this novel make it sound very interesting.

I am so happy to have discovered Michelle Moran! I can't wait to get my hands on her books.

Nefertiti: I've always been intrigued by this character, but when you wrote that you can really feel the emotions with Mutny, I was sold that THIS is the book to read. I love that kind of writing (who doesn't?).

Heretic Queen: Again, your comments that you get caught up with the emotions of the character are a draw (I might be Michelle Moran's new biggest fan!) but the fact that it's one of those stories you're sad to finish and wish could continue really sold me...I'm curious to see if it would have that same impact on me!

Cleopatra's daughter: I already knew I wanted to read the book, but your 5-star rating and the fact that you read it in 3 days with a 5-week-old to care for REALLY said something.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I commented on the hydrangea quilt (ps - AMAZING). I am a new quilter and it's really so so pretty. I hope someday I'll be able to produce like that! Right now I'm working on my first quilt top - a queen size 9-patch with no sashing. We'll see how it goes!

Michelle Moran's books have stayed with me ever since I read your reviews on them. I was immediately intrigued! I've noticed our taste in books run in the same vein, so I'm pretty sure I'd love her. Please include me for the giveway...I'd love to win this!

I follow your blog and have you linked as one of my favorite book reviewers.

Wow - I wish everyone could win!!!!

Vicki said...

What you said that makes me want to read them~

Cleopatra's Daughter:
The characters and people are brought to life on the pages and their emotions and causes are strongly felt as if a reader was a participant in their day to day lives.

Nefertiti:
You feel her pain, her anger, and her ignorance at times right with her.

The Heritic Queen:
She overcomes the "sins of her fathers" and moves beyond.

Please enter me in this giveaway!

Cleopatra's Daughter:
I've always been interested in the lives and family of Marc Antony and Cleopatra.

Nefertiti:
I think it would be interesting to learn about the reign of an Ancient Egyptian queen, who was more powerful than all men.

The Heretic Queen:
This novel sounds interesting because Nefertari had to overcome Nefertiti's legacy to make her throne her own.
