"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I'm waiting on this week:
by Carolyn Meyer
To be released: June 07, 2011
Summary from Baker and Taylor:
"It is the first century B.C. Cleopatra, the third of the pharaoh's six children, is the one that her father has chosen to be the next queen of Egypt. But when King Ptolemy is forced into exile, Cleopatra is left alone to fend for herself in a palace rife with intrigue and murder. Smart, courageous, ambitious and sensuously beautiful, she possesses the charm to cause two of history's most famous leaders to fall in love with her. But as her cruel sisters plot to steal the throne, Cleopatra realizes there is only one person on whom she can rely--herself."
I have a confession to make... I've never read any of Carolyn Meyer's books. As a lover of historical fiction, I know this is a serious issue. I'll probably be fixing that with this book. I love Egyptian history stuff, so I'm super excited for this book. It sounds really unique!
