March Books update on my TBR challenge

I read about this book challenge on Names Have Been Changed
Anyway, since I'm always trying to read at least one hundred books per year, I'm giving it a shot as part of the The TBR Challenge

March: Somehow I end up reading the books that are in front of me, and forgetting to read the books on this list. I just finished Farthing by Jo Walton, which gets five stars and rates a separate review.

I've also read this month:
Stones from the River by Ursula Hegi
A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula LeGuin
The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula LeGuin
Rainbow's End by Vernor Vinge

My list of twelve books is:
1. The White Castle by Orhan Pamuk read in Feb
2. The Pakistani Bride by Bapsi Sidhwa - XK
3. Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott - currently carrying around with me
4. Mortals by Norman Rush read in Jan
5. Carnival by Elizabeth Bear Vte

9. Brasyl by Ian MacDonald Vte
10. The War of the Nerves by Ben Sheppard SLV

12. A Door into Ocean by Joan Slonczewski read in Feb SLV

Alternative Books:
