What Are You Reading in March?

What is on your reading list this month?

Do your reading habits change with the seasons, or are you at all times equal opportunity?

After last month’s lighter vacation reading schedule, I’m back to my usual heavy rotation of books.

Since 1st March, I’ve finished:

  • Victorian Women and the Theatre of Trance: Mediums, Spiritualists, and Mesmerists in Performance by Amy Lehman
  • Nicholas Ray: The Glorious Failure of an American Director by Patrick McGilligan

I’m in the midst of reading:

  • Shakespeare’s Restless World: A Portrait of an Era in Twenty Objects by Neil MacGregor
  • Women of the Underground: Art: Cultural Innovators Speak for Themselves Edited by Zora Von Burden
  • Hawthorne: A Life by Brenda Wineapple

To be finished by 31 March:

  • Keepers: The Greatest Films–and Personal Favorites–of a Moviegoing Lifetime by Richard Schickel
  • Paris in the Fifties by Stanley Karnow
  • Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman by Sam Wasson
  • Women of the Underground: Music: Cultural Innovators Speak for Themselves Edited by Zora Von Burden

    • The Nick Ray book is pretty fantastic. I highly recommend it.

      The trance book is interesting, if mainly because it talks about a lot of fascinating, mostly forgotten women. Writing wise, it’s fine but not amazing. I still recommend it, though.

  1. I’m keen to hear what you think about Keepers by Richard Schickel.

    I’m currently reading The Ice Cream Blonde: The Whirlwind Life and Mysterious Death of Screwball Comedienne Thelma Todd by Michelle Morgan. Quite interesting!

    Just finished reading A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. Highly recommended.

    • I’m saving “Keepers” for last. I cannot wait to read it.

      I’ve read a book about Thelma, but not that one. I’ll have to check it out.

      I’ll look into “A Man Called Ove,” as I love a good book rec!
