Since March just ended, here’s the progress I made during that month in terms of books and Reading Challenges. It’s followed by the books I’ve read and reviewed this week.
March in Review:
Read: 19 books
2011: 65 out of 200 books.
Horror & Urban Fantasy: 9 out of 24 books
Speculative Fiction: 9 out of 12 books – I will definitely be reading above and beyond the minimum goal.
The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles by Michael Alan Nelson – 3.5 stars. Not bad at all, but sort of like a lot of horror ideas combined with some Lovecraft tossed in rather than a Lovecraftian take on horror. I’m also starting to wish people wouldn’t take Cthulhu’s name in vain or tease me with it since once again Cthulhu never actually showed up in this graphic novel.
Melting Ice 1 by D. J. Manly – 3 stars. An enjoyable M/M novella.
Shaken by J. A. Konrath – Will review next week.
Winter’s Child by Cameron Dokey – Read for the Fairy Tale Fortnight. Review will be posted later in the month.
