We are too busy at my office getting ready for an upcoming trial to take Presidents' Day off work, but I can still enjoy a couple of new books I got this weekend:
A Hole in My Genes by Dr. Jodie Fleming. This cancer survivor memoir is particularly compelling because the author is a psychologist who, before her own breast cancer diagnosis, specialized in "psycho-oncology" counseling cancer patients.
Mira's Way by Amy Maroney. This is the second book in Maroney's historical fiction Miramonde Series. I just finished the first book, A Girl from Oto and absolutely loved it. Read my Rose City Reader interview of Amy Maroney.
What books came into your house last week?

It's uncanny that a cancer counselor would end up with cancer herself. I think it would be an interesting memoir.ReplyDelete
I am glad that you are enjoying the Maroney historical fiction series. It does look good.ReplyDelete
A Hole in My Genes sounds interesting too.
I had a cousin who worked as a registered nurse in the cancer ward of a hospital. She smoked and died of cancer. Just shows how addictive cigarettes are.ReplyDelete
