FanIQ Book of the Month Club: March, 2012
I'm giving us five to choose from, because I don't think we've set rules as to how many choices we have. I'm totally up for any of these, and will probably read them all anyway. The Hunger Games is a choice even though I believe that a couple of you have already read it, so take that as you will. Lust Lizard - I loved Christopher Moore so much from reading Lamb, I'll be reading more of his stuff. 

Wicked - Gregory Maguire
FanIQ Book of the Month Club: March, 2012 Photo
When Dorothy triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum's classic tale, we heard only her side of the story. But what about her arch-nemesis, the mysterious Witch? ...Gregory Maguire creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again. Wicked is about a land where animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class citizens, Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle-class stability, and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence. And then there is the little green-skinned girl named Elphaba, who will grow up to become the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, a smart, prickly, and misunderstood creature who challenges all our preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil.

The Witching Hour - Anne Rice (Old, I know, but I've never read it)
FanIQ Book of the Month Club: March, 2012 PhotoFrom the author of the extraordinary Vampire Chronicles comes a huge, hypnotic novel of witchcraft and the occult through four centuries. Demonstrating, once again, her gift for spellbinding storytelling and the creation of legend, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of witches - a family given to poetry and to incest, to murder and to philosophy; a family that, over the ages, is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being.

Beach Road - James Patterson w/Peter De Jonge (I've read this, but it was years ago, and I want to reread)
FanIQ Book of the Month Club: March, 2012 PhotoMontauk lawyer Tom Dunleavy's client list is woefully small - occasional real estate closings barely keep him in paper clips. When he is hired to defend a local man accused in a triple murder that has the East Hampton world in an uproar, he knows that he has found the case of his lifetime...The crime turns the glittering playground for the super-rich into a blazing inferno. Dunleavy's client is a local hero, but Dunleavy knows the case rests atop a volcano of money, deception, and forbidden desires. His client is the perfect fall guy - unless he can find the key that unlocks the secret rooms of the gilt-shrouded set....When Dunleavy is joined by his former flame, the savvy and well-connected attorney, Kate Costello, he believes he has a chance. But payback is a bitch - especially from the rich. The violent retaliations of billionaires threatened by his investigation exceed anything Dunleavy has ever seen. With the entire nation's eyes on him in a new Trial of the Century, Dunleavy orchestrates a series of revelations that lead to a stunning outcome - only to find afterward that the truth is wilder than anything he ever imagined.

The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
FanIQ Book of the Month Club: March, 2012 PhotoKatniss is a 16yo girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorist district of Panem, the remains of what used to be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.

Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove - Christopher Moore
FanIQ Book of the Month Club: March, 2012 PhotoThe town psychiatrist has decided to switch everybody in Pine Cove, California, from their normal antidepressants to placebos, so naturally (well, to be accurate, artificially) business is booming at the local blues bar. Trouble is, those lonely slide-guitar notes have also attracted a colossal sea beast named Steve with a, shall we say, thing for explosive oil tanker trucks. Suddenly morose Pine Cove turns libidinous and is filled with mysterious crimes, and a beleaguered constable has to fight off his own gonzo appetites to find out what's wrong and what, if anything, to do about it.

#2 | 779 days ago

I vote either Wicked or the Hunger Games.  I have read The Witching Hour probably 20 times.  Beach Road would probably be the quickest read for me, though.  This coming from the girl who has put The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on hold until after my midterms this week.

The Hunger Games is a total page turner and I can't wait for the movie. This gets my vote. (The other 2 in the series are great too.)


I've read Wicked, seen the musical too----LOVE IT, it's a good one too. 
The Hunger Games  
#6 | 779 days ago

I voted for Lust Lizard.  And it's absolutely NOT because it's what we're reading for my work bookclub next month and I don't want to fall behind by three books.  

(Although I read The Hunger Games months ago, so I'd be ok with that, too.)

I voted for Lust Lizard because I am enjoying Lamb, not in the mood for the others. Plus, Kat and Teach have already The Hunger Games.

It's looking like unless Lust Lizard makes a pretty big leap, The Hunger Games will win March. Although, I'm going to read Lust Lizard anyway...especially since I started reading Hunger Games one day this past week and finished it in just a few hours. I'm on the 2nd one of the series now, started it last night and I'm almost done with it.

Anyone with me to read LL anyway? 
#11 | 776 days ago

I'm out.  I'm only about half way through 11-22-63 so I won't be starting a new book anytime soon.
#12 | 776 days ago

I'm on spring break in Dallas next week.  I will probably buy Hunger Games and try to knock it AND The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo out next week.  I won't even read Jan/Feb selections because my life is just too hectic for now.

I think you're in the clear for January ... Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was both December and January (which I still have yet to read too...I need to be in the right mood; I started it and got bored by about the 6th page in). So you'll only miss the one month laugh

Yay!  I did too much this semester.  Hopefully, i've learned not to overload myself.

Be prepared for more of the same.  The first half of that book is a snooze-fest.  The second half is outstanding.

You defintely told the truth with this statement- so much of a snooze I opted not to see the movie

That's tough for me - even with movies, I turn them off if they bore me for very long...and they're only a couple of hours...with books, I could be bored for days. I'm sure I'll pick it up again, just on the promise that at some point it does get better - but I'll probably end up taking months to read it.

It took me months to read it.  I struggled with the first half and almost gave up, even though I HATE doing that.  Even with free books (I started one over a year ago and toughed through about 65% of it before I just gave up on it a few months after starting it.  Now it still irks me on almost a daily basis.  )
