50 Book Pledge Round-Up: November 7-11

Hello Savvy Readers,

This week has been quite hectic with all the election drama, so to wind down, why not catch up on some book news and spend some time with something you enjoy?


Here’s what you missed…

The 50 Book Pledge

Savvy Readers! We are currently at 83% of our goal! That means we’ve read over 144,000 books! We are slowing climbing our way to the finish line! Do you think we can do it?!


This Week’s Featured Read


Pharaoh brings Wilbur Smith fans back to Ancient Egypt and takes them on a new epic adventure. Egypt is under attack, and Pharaoh Tamose has been mortally wounded. This book has everything—magic, mystery, romance, battles, gruesome deaths, intriguing characters, and everything in between. See what other readers had to say about this exciting book!

“Best historical novelist – I say Wilbur Smith” Stephen King, Amazon

“Wilbur Smith’s greatest strength is the characters that he creates. They are over-the-top and larger than life; they are characters where the heroes take center stage and everyone else is just lucky to be in the same place at the same time.” Greg, Goodreads

“With a plot faster than the swiftest chariot in Egypt and pacing as relentless as the mightiest warrior, Pharaoh is an adrenaline-pumping addition to Wilbur Smith’s epic Ancient Egypt series.” Ryan, The Real Book Spy
