Monstrous March – Reading Challenge

Kathy over at Books & Munches hosts a monthly reading challenge, and this month is Monstrous March. This simply means that you include at least one book on your TBR for March that qualifies as a “monstrous” book. This could be a book with monsters, characters behaving like monsters, or even a monstrously large book. Thrillers, suspense novels, horror, ghost stories and the like, all are fair game for March!

This challenge seems particularly timely for me as I have several thriller/suspense types coming up on my list that I can’t seem to get especially excited about. This challenge could prove just the thing to get me over this suspense novel slump and make room for more of the books I really want to read.

On my to-read list I have several books that will meet this challenge, including:

  • Several of the Kinsey Milhone books by Sue Grafton
  • The Last Innocent Man, by Phillip Margolin
  • A handful of Jonathan Kellerman’s Alex Delaware books
  • Or how about a monstrous nonfiction – Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army, by Jeremy Scahill

I will not get through all of them, but it would be nice to mark a few off the list. This is assuming, of course, that I don’t get completely sidelined by John Ringo’s Black Tide Rising series. Though, to be fair, these books also fit very neatly into this monstrous challenge. What isn’t monstrous about a zombie apocalypse?
