Her Defiant Heart (Damaged Hearts, #1) by Monica Murphy
Her Defiant Heart (Damaged Hearts #1) - Monica Murphy

 

For every strength gained was a broken heart determined to destroy. Jen has lived her life being tossed aside. From a mother who didn't care to a father struggling to move on. Her world has been less than ideal. A beautiful heart has grown to be an angry soul intent on revenge. Murphy is a heart breaker. Her Defiant Heart is an emotional ride that feels like taboo voyeurism. Rhett and Jen have never met, but when they do will change each other's lives. The road is long, the secrets run deep and the pain feels never-ending, but when it comes to love, healing finds a way.

Rabid
Rabid: A Cultural History of the World's Most Diabolical Virus - Monica Murphy,Bill Wasik

Rabid describes how furiously I flew through this. I now know more about rabies and it's culture than I ever thought i would. What a horrific virus. This book was both fascinating and terrifying.

Rabid: A Cultural History of the World's Most Diabolical Virus - Monica Murphy,Bill Wasik

Peasant: "He attacked me. He's gone mad. And he's barking like a dog. What could possibly be the matter with him?"

 

Doctor: "Hm....must be a werewolf."

 

Gotta love old-school medicine.

Dangerous Ground: My Friendship with a Serial Killer - M. William Phelps

I just haven't been able to read lately. Migraines are the worst. So I finally saw a neurologist and he was pretty flabbergasted by why nobody was taking this seriously. He took me off the Topamax and prescribed Aimovig, which is a monthly injection. And of course Tricare put a screeching halt on that, saying it's too expensive and demanding a pre-auth. A pre-authorization is basically the doctor making a case for why I need it, as if the doctor prescribing it isn't enough. Now I'm waiting for my damn insurance to say it's okay for me to have this lifesaving medicine so I can function like a human being again. If anyone ever says the military have good benefits, tell them to bite you. Our insurance is only good if you have a cold or a sinus infection. When there is something really wrong, they lose their shit.

 

Anyway, I should be listening to my audiobook of Spinning Silver but I don't even have the motivation to start it. I really want to read a lot of these nonfiction books I got. I'm in a slump.

You Promised Me Forever (Forever Yours #1) by Monica Murphy
You Promised Me Forever - Monica Murphy

 

A love in transition equals a heartbreak on the horizon. Can Jordan and Amanda forgive the mistakes of their young love and take a chance on building something new? Nobody does the angst of teen aged love like Monica Murphy. You Promised Me Forever takes a detour on the highway of regret and pain before it reaches the ramp of goodbye. It's hard to appreciate what you have until you lose what you always wanted. A life lesson hard earned, but that we're so much better for. What started with a sweetness ends with drama. A bond severed by neglect. Can the damage be repaired by a little time and distance. From lovers to friends then back again. Murphy puts her heart in this tale of second chances.
