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