February (15/100)

2011 Reading Challenge

Maria has

read 15 books toward her goal of 100 books.


Let's see, my list for February (well I finished one this morning, but I'm gonna include it):

Treating Survivors of Childhood Abuse: Psychotherapy for the Interrupted Life, by Marylene Cloitre, et. al.
Burnt Offerings, by Laurell K. Hamilton
The Almost Moon, by Alice Sebold
Why Marriages Succeed or Fail: And How You Can Make Yours Last, by John Gottman
The Lost Gate, by Orson Scott Card
Trust After Trauma: A Guide to Relationships for Survivors and Those Who Love Them, by Aphrodite Matsakis
The Lover's Dictionary: A Novel, by David Levithan
Captain's Fury, by Jim Butcher
Testimony, by Anita Shreve

Looking at the list together, I was kind of underwhelmed this month. I thoroughly enjoyed The Lost Gate and Captain's Fury (and I use the two books on trauma regularly with my clients), but the more "serious" fiction was all good, but not GREAT.
