March's Book List

15) Claimed by Shadow - Karen Chance (3/12/08) - If you like perfectly proportioned heroines with supernatural powers, you'll like this book.

16) Dark Possession - Christine Feehan (3/13/08) - if you think vacuums suck, try living with one of the men in this series. you'll be a fan of this book if you think it's a laugh riot reading about an egotistical old dude (who looks young) try to conquer a spunky hispanic chick while avoiding the clutches of bloodthirsty vamps. i'm not a fan.

17) Bloody Bones - Laurell Hamilton (3/16/08) - i have determined this series must contain subliminal messages spurring me to read on. no other excuse.

18) Saint City Sinners - Lilith Saintcrow (3/19/08) - if you like tough heroines who are awesome in the first two books of the series, okay in the third, and become downright annoying as the series progresses...Dante Valentine series for the win. Still gonna continue reading it. that's how i roll.

19) The Killing Dance - Laurell Hamilton (3/23/08)  - see 17.

20) Alice in April - Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (3/23/08) - there's no ifs about it, you will like this series. those who don't like coming of age stories should not comment.

21) Alice in between - Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (3/23/08)  - see 20. i really wish i had read these when i was younger.

22) The Outlaw Demon Wails - Kim Harrison (3/26/08) - finally! not only did i have to wait for the book to be published BUT i had to wait forever and a day for my turn to read this from the library. fun, enjoyable, quick read. yaysers.

23) Aristotle and an Aardvark go to Washington - Thomas Cathcart & Daniel Klein (3/27/08) - the first 2/3rds not nearly as humorous as all of their first book, but Cathcart and Klein make up for it a bit in the end. Probably b/c the last 1/3 includes the VERY important chapter on post hoc ergo propter hoc - after this, therefore because of this. it's the best illogic tool out there - i.e. correlation = causation. wrongness times ten!

24) Howl (from the editors of BARK) (3/31/08) - fun collection of stories from Bark magazine. if you like dogs (and you should), you'll like this book.

Does it have to be a current best seller? Nonfiction or fiction?

Either of Malcolm Gladwell's books are fab and easy reads - The Tipping Point and Blink . Levitt's book Freakonomics is good too. Natalie Angiers book The Canon is a fun read too. Thos are some nonfiction reads that I think are good.

As for fiction - The Memory Keeper's Daughter isn't an easy read but it's interesting and well written. The Lovely Bones and The Time Traveler's Wife were both best sellers but not current ones, I don't think. Laura Lippman's What the Dead Know is a creepy, tightly written (imo, anyways), mystery-thriller.

i've just started reading laurell hamilton. i finished guilty pleasures, the first anita blake novel. the story kept me interested, but there were a few times when the writing seemed, i dont know, kinda flat. but the story was good and i intend to work my way thru the entire series.

howl sounds cute and is available at my library (woohoo!)

the kim harrison novels sound interesting too. amazon.com said a blend of anita blake and stephanie plum.

the cassie palmer books look good too.

i'm up to my ears in good reading!
