Books in March

So March is here, it’s gone fast. I’m not sure I like it. So that’s good. Little existential crisis on top. These are the books I’m planning to read in the month of March. There were three books I was planning on reading in February (I was a wee bit ambitious), that I’ve moved over to March. Those are Americanah (which I have started), Råta (the Rot, I guess) and Metro 2033. Other than that though. Off we go to March books.

Dark Currents by Jacqueline Carey
So I’ve read like… ten of Carey’s books. I think she’s an incredible fantasy author. The other books I’ve read are sort of epic high fantasy, this is more urban fantasy. Also it features Norse Goddess Hel, who is awesome. It’s about a young woman named Daisy Johanssen, she’s half human, half incubus-demon-hell-spawn, and she works for the Pemkowet police department as a liaison between Hel and the human world. Pemkowet is full of supernatural creatures, Hel, naiads, undines, werewolves, a badass lamia, ghouls, and you know, Daisy. There’s a suspicious death in the little town, and Daisy has to liaise with the police when it looks like he’s been killed by something supernatural. I’ve started reading it and so far it’s awesome. There are scary-sexy ghouls, handsome werewolves and you know, Daisy struggling with her darker side. Fun.

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
I read this before, when I was like 17, and I could not get into it, I hated all the characters and I got annoyed with them. And I’m bitter and broken, so the love story didn’t really appeal to me. But I’m willing to give it another chance, it’ll be fun. It’s about the relationship between Catherine Earnshaw and a boy her father adopted, named Heathcliff. He is in love with Catherine, and believes his love is not reciprocated (wrongly), and when her dad dies her brother mercilessly bullies Heathcliff and he leaves angrily. Then comes back a while later to exact vengeance. As far as I remember I didn’t like any of the characters, so that’s nice. Mainly because they’re awful.

Geek Love by Katherine Dunne
So I found this book through justkissmyfrog’s YouTube videos. It’s about a carny family who use amphetamines, arsenic, and other poisons to breed their babies to become oddities. And they travel around the US doing their freak show act. And I don’t know anything else about it, but that was enough for me to just go, yes! So that’ll be interesting.

The Absolutely true Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie
This is a book of the month in one of the groups I’m in on Goodreads. But I’ve always wanted to read it anyways, so that was lucky. It’s about a kid called Junior, a budding cartoonist, who grows up on a reservation. He leaves his reservation school to go to a white school. It’s supposed to be amazing, so I’m excited.

That’s what I’ll be reading for March. It’ll be fun. Yeah, go March.
