Musing Monday is hosted over at Should Be Reading.

 

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Today I am going to muse a little bit about a book I wrapped up reading and will be posting a review for soon. Lily of the Nile is a Historical fiction that plays with the children specifically Selene of Cleopatra and Antony and what happened to them after the war. Those who know my Love of Ancient History know I support and always will Antony, and think Octavian is a fathead (to put it nicely). Those who know me very closely know just how deep my dislike of that man run. Nearly as bad as Brutus…but that is a whole different post.

I have to say I like this story. I wish there were more stories about the children of Cleopatra and Antony. There were parts that galled me like when Antony was refereed to as having been a coward for killing himself. Bad understanding of Roman tradition there. So my muse is really do you take up reading a book if you know without a doubt there is going to be at least one character within it that you dislike a great deal?

    While I am not a great historical fiction fan, this sounds interesting.
