It's Monday! Time for my favorite meme. Sheila from One Person's Journey Through a World of Books hosts this fun meme.

This Book is Overdue

Web of Secrets
Birth Day: A Pediatrician Explores the Science, the History, and the Wonders of Childbirth (really enjoying this one about birth and babies)
Ready to pick up at library:

When Dad Killed Mom
Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
The Little Prisoner: A Memoir
Shattered Silence: The Untold Story of a Serial Killer's Daughter
Okay, now those really sound like uplifting reads, huh?! Three of those titles I got because of our host Sheila's Social Justice Challenge post on Domestic Violence and Child Abuse. Natasha at Maw Books hosts this challenge. Each month they focus on a different theme and I happened to be interested in the Domestic Violence and Child Abuse theme. I saw this list of books and just couldn't control myself. My mom is a nurse, and I had worked as a medical secretary since I was 17 and have always been fascinated by medical science, criminology, psychology, psychiatry and sociology. Does that explain my depressing and morbid list of books?
