Books from the Backlog - Crocodile on the Sandbank

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters

Blurb:  Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I absolutely adore Barbara Michaels but never read her Amelia Peabody books under her Elizabeth Peters name.  Also, Barbara Mertz (who is both Barbara Michaels and Elizabeth Peters) was actually an Egyptologist with several published books under her real name.


  1. I had this same book on my shelf for many, many years. I hope you do read it and review it. It sounds like this author is the perfect person to write this series.

  2. This one has been on my shelf forever, too...really need to try the Ameilia Peabody books!

  3. oh I've read and loved all of these. Enjoy!

  4. It sure looks good. I hope you get to read it soon

  5. I have had the first few books in this series on my Kindle for years. I can't wait to see what you think of this one.

  6. Hi Katherine!

    I actually have this one on my TBR and my kindle as well! If you are up for a buddy read, perhaps we can get it off our shelves that way! Just let me know.

    Hope you are well otherwise!
