People with more knowledge of Egyptian history may feel differently about this book but my knowledge is limited and I found this very informative. Some parts were a bit dry, and at times the author assumes things without proof to support it, but that still didn't distract me from the fascinating lives of these six powerful women.

Cleopatra: A Life | Stacy Schiff, Schiff

Took an unintentional break…. My mental health has not been good and I‘m still adjusting to my new job so I just haven‘t been reading.

Currently I‘m try very slowly to finish Hour of the Witch by Chris Bohjalian and Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff.

Things will get better I know and maybe getting back to posting will help.

What do you when you have the next three days off because you left your job but the new one doesn‘t start yet?

Try to finish the books your in the middle of so you can have a fresh book to start your next chapter with of course.

I saw that that this has pretty 50/50 mixed reviews, but I liked it. I didn‘t think the author was too over-reaching. It was a well done biography that simultaneously dispels some of the myths surrounding Cleopatra while also exposing how they came into being in the first place.

I love this series! Charlie Thorne is so smart, the other characters are great, and each books contains a fantastic combination of history and action. In this 3rd book Charlie is searching for a secret treasure hidden by Cleopatra, and the story emphasizes Cleopatra‘s leadership and intelligence. #MiddleGrade

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I've read a lot of books about Egypt and Cleopatra as well as Roman history, which made this book all the more enjoyable. Looking forward to the 2nd book in the series 👌

4/5 ⭐️ Overall this was an interesting read that delved into a few Egyptian queens that I had never heard of before! I just wish there had been less reference to modern events and politics, since I‘m listening for ancient history, not current events..

A bit late on this one…

1. There was a locally owned used bookstore where I grew up that opened up when I was a child and remained open until well after my kids were born called The Book Rack. They had the sweetest shop dog named Dandy. Also Chamblin Bookmine in Jacksonville.
2. Don‘t really have a favorite library currently although my daughter‘s middle name is Alexandria for the greatest library. :)
3. My job.
