March is a tricky month—the promise of spring taunts us, but in most of the country, it remains bitterly cold. Daylight Savings brings more evening light, but throws our sleep schedules out of whack. In Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar, a soothsayer famously warns Caesar before his assassination to “beware the Ides of March,” and we only have St. Patrick’s Day and March Madness to help distract us before April showers start to bring May flowers. So, what is one to do during the not-quite-warm days? Why read, of course! An incredible crop of books were published this month, and while many have a dark edge to them, we guarantee that once you pick these up, you won’t be able to stop reading until spring feels like it’s officially here.
