Books that I want to read

There are admittedly a million books that I have to read but I’m trying *laughs maniacally * to cut it into a short list  . 

1 . Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn

Mistress of Rome (The Empress of Rome, #1)

You might be thinking I’m very late for this and you’re right . I’m almost 9 years late for this one . Alright , this is going to make me sound nuts but you know what got me into this book ? It’s this : 

“- what was the point of having an Emperor, if you couldn’t cook up spicy rumors about him?” 
― Kate Quinn, Mistress of Rome

That is a nice one , right ?

I don’t really know why , but that dialogue is enough to string me along . 

2. Lady of the Eternal City by Kate Quinn

Lady of the Eternal City (The Empress of Rome, #4)

You see where this is going , don’t you ? 

Though the whole series sounds interesting , the Lady of Eternal City and the Mistress of Rome are the ones that are too intriguing to pass up . 

“But if men are the makers and breakers of empires, then women are the makers and breakers of men.” 
― Kate Quinn, Lady of the Eternal City

3. Poison by Sara Poole 

Poison (The Poisoner Mysteries, #1)

“Sometimes it is in the empty, blank places that we find truth staring back at us.” 
― Sara Poole, Poison

I think I’d love to follow the story of a protagonist trying to avenge her father’s death . 

Bonus Points : The cover looks awesome . 


4. Hand of Isis by Jo Graham 

Hand of Isis (Numinous World, #3)

So , this one follows the handmaiden of Cleopatra who is also an oracle . Rome is spreading too fast , will Egypt last ? 

“Can the leopard change his spots?” Emrys mused. “Leopards have, but the other leopards don’t like it.” 
― Jo Graham, Hand of Isis

I think Historical fiction is drawing me in . 


5. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series 

Daughter of Smoke & Bone

I’m late for this series , too . This has been sitting on my TBR for years now and I just can’t find time to get through with this . I hope to start this soon . 

“Wishes are false. Hope is true. Hope makes its own magic.” 
― Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

6. Valley of the Kings by Terrance Coffey 

Valley of the Kings: The 18th Dynasty

Oh , oh , oh , but the cover is pretty , isn’t it ? I love it ! 

I’m honestly hooked because of the mention of Queen Nefertiti and King Akhanaten . 

In the year 1355 BCE, the land of Egypt was the superpower of the known world. King Tut’s father, Akenaten, the so-called ‘heretic pharaoh,’ and his wife, Queen Nefertiti, are on the verge of catapulting Egypt into a revolution that will forever divide its people and rip the most powerful empire on the earth from its foundation. 

7 . Come Closer by Sara Gran 

The cover of the book Come Closer
Scary cover 

I want to read this one just because I haven’t read many horrors and this one seems lovely . 

“We could devote our lives to making sense of the odd, the inexplicable, the coincidental. But most of us don’t, and I didn’t either.” 
― Sara Gran, Come Closer

I hope it’s a eerie and creepy story. 


8 . The Chaos of the Stars by Kiersten White 

The Chaos of Stars

Again , another book picked just because it mentions Egypt and because it’s from Miss White . 

“Some things, the best things, do last forever” 
― Kiersten White, The Chaos of Stars

The reviews on goodreads are confusing me , however . So this book is a maybe . Has anyone read this already ? Is it worth it ?

Bonus points : Awesome cover !

That’s my short list to accomplish soon . Is any of it on your own tbr ? Tell about what you’re going to be reading next .
