Persephone Book Club ““ April, 2012

[E] Slay BelleBook Club22 Comments


Hello readers!

First, let’s congratulate our lady, Minerva McGonagall, for her win in this year’s Middlemarch Madness. Unfortunately for her, we already read Harry Potter for book club, so we’ll be skipping the Middlemarch winner and moving along down our reading list for the next meeting.

The next P-Mag book club will “meet” the weekend on May 5th-6th. We will be reading ““ I need a drumroll gif here ““ The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin.


Yeine Darr is an outcast from the barbarian north. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, she is summoned to the majestic city of Sky. There, to her shock, Yeine is named an heiress to the king. But the throne of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is not easily won, and Yeine is thrust into a vicious power struggle with cousins she never knew she had. As she fights for her life, she draws ever closer to the secrets of her mother’s death and her family’s bloody history.

With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Yeine will learn how perilous it can be when love and hate – and gods and mortals – are bound inseparably together. (Book description courtesy of Amazon.)

    I just borrowed an e-book copy from my library and read it all in one day (and slightly into the night…oops). That’s what happens when your life is filled with reading scientific papers and you’re craving some good old fantasy novels…

      zohmygosh yes! So true. I would have finished it tonight, but I have exams tomorrow, so I have to be a good kid. Still I made it 200 pages in this morning before making myself behave.

      I did, too (Kindle web reader for the win). I found it compulsive but I’m not sure if I liked it… which is pretty much how I felt about Twilight… but I’ll save my feeeelings for the books club weekend:)

          It takes years of hard study, hours of practice, an official poetic license, and copious amounts of trash-TV.

          Well, maybe it doesn’t need that last part…but that would be funny to me.
