Here are the books I read in March and my one-shot recommendations on whether they’re worth reading.

The Office of Mercy Ariel Djanikian YEA. Not rip-roaringly exciting, but thoughtful and well-written.
The Headmaster’s Wife Thomas Christopher Greene MAYBE. It was flawed, but intelligent, and I’d be interested to see what else the author has done.
Strange Bodies Marcel Theroux YEA. It was good-weird and interesting, especially in light of the fact that I read Neuromancer for the first time ever just a few weeks later.
Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles Ron Currie Jr. NAY. This book goes for something it just never reaches.
Darkness Take My Hand
Gone Baby Gone
Dennis Lehane YEA. If you like Tana French, you will probably also like Dennis Lehane, who is a similarly adept writer who pays attention to character and atmosphere/setting, though he is grittier than French.
Neuromancer William Gibson YEA. I’m embarrassed that, as a sci-fi fan, I’ve only now read this for the first time. Absolutely seminal.
The Fault in Our Stars John Green YEA. Hilarious and honest. But be prepared for a big snotty cry.
