Introducing Our Book Club, “Pages in Colour!”

Hello, dear friends! I hope you all are well, and if not, I hope brighter days head your way soon!

Today I have an exciting announcement for you! Rae of Bookmark Chronicles, Sumedha at The Wordy Habitat, and I have created a digital book club! It’s called Diversity’s Lit “Pages in Colour,” and it’s a quarterly book club that starts up this upcoming May and that will focus on diverse fantasy! We’re so excited to bring this project to life and to share in it with y’all! We’ll be running the club via Discord, where we’re hoping to have discussions, activities, and events.

this quarter’s selection

Author of Empire of Sand and Realm of Ash Tasha Suri’s The Jasmine Throne, beginning a new trilogy set in a world inspired by the history and epics of India, in which a captive princess and a maidservant in possession of forbidden magic become unlikely allies on a dark journey to save their empire from the princess’s traitor brother.

Imprisoned by her dictator brother, Malini spends her days in isolation in the Hirana: an ancient temple that was once the source of the powerful, magical deathless waters — but is now little more than a decaying ruin.

Priya is a maidservant, one among several who make the treacherous journey to the top of the Hirana every night to clean Malini’s chambers. She is happy to be an anonymous drudge, so long as it keeps anyone from guessing the dangerous secret she hides.

But when Malini accidentally bears witness to Priya’s true nature, their destinies become irrevocably tangled. One is a vengeful princess seeking to depose her brother from his throne. The other is a priestess seeking to find her family. Together, they will change the fate of an empire.

I’m also happy to announce that this upcoming quarter’s selection is The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri! We’ll be reading it from May 1, 2022 to July 31, 2022. I’ve heard so many great things about this book, so I’m very excited to be reading it with y’all! As a quick note, you’re welcome to read/listen to our quarterly selections as a physical book, e-book, and/or audiobook. I, personally, have The Jasmine Throne on audiobook (which is my preferred format), so that’s how I’ll be consuming it.

join in the fun!
