Parasha: February

Since it's mid-point in the month, I figure it's probably time to start figuring out what we're doing next month.

We've had Frankenstein and Wizard of Oz previously suggested, haven't done them though. Also in the vein *ahem* of Frankenstein, Dracula might be interesting, as I mentioned last month.

Something more modern might be fun too, like one of the newer fantasy authors that perhaps not everyone has read.

But I'd also be interested in more suggestions (or reminders of older ones I've forgotten). What would be good and fun to read in this way? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

In the vein of the (joking, I realize) comment about February and romance, we could also do something that has a little more romance than usual to the plot. Like maybe Sorcery and Celia, or something.

I'd suggest maybe a urban supernatural book, since they usually have romance twined into them, but that might be getting too specifically sub-genre-y for a group thing like this.

You... probably have a point. *sigh*

(Okay, you do, I just hate to admit it, since I do love at least parts of the sub-genre... and cringe horribly at others. Blah.)

Although some of them might be fun to do, to pick en masse at just what is wrong with them (ie, the early Dresdens or what have you. :p ) But I'm not really seriously suggesting that.

I'm not sure _War for the Oaks_ or _Tam Lin_ has a good structure for this type of reading. I may go reread them for the heck of it, though.

I hesitate to even mention _Blood and Iron_, partly because there's a sequel, and mostly because of the baggage surrounding it. But I liked it.
