In My Mailbox (19)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi The Story Siren. I didn't get much of anything this week but that's okay!

From Paperbackswap:

~Sphinx's Princess by Esther Friesner

Summary from Goodreads:

Nefertiti was far more than just a pretty face.

Nefertiti may be the dutiful daughter of a commoner, but her inquisitive mind often gets her into situations that are far from ordinary, like receiving secret lessons from a scribe. And she’s the kind of girl who acts first, and apologizes later whenever she witnesses injustice or cruelty. But she is also extraordinarily beautiful. And news of her striking beauty and impulsive behavior attracts the attention of her aunt, the manipulative Queen Tiye, who sees Nefertiti as an ideal pawn in her desire for power. Even though Nefertiti is taken from her beloved family and forced into a life filled with courtly intrigue and danger, her spirit and mind will not rest. She continues to challenge herself and the boundaries of ancient Egyptian society.

That's it for me! I have to catch up on some reading before my trip so this one book is fine.
