I’m about 100 pages into Michelle Moran’s Nefertiti, a book I would have never picked up if it hadn’t been recommended. So far, so good. It’s pure entertainment, but let me tell you I am thoroughly enjoying just sitting back and being entertained. The writing flows, the story — told from the perspective of Nefertiti’s sister — is compelling, and I’m learning something about a time period and part of world I know little about. For this crazy time of year, it feels just about perfect.
