I really hope that the paragraph I included in my review doesn't offend Ms. Annie, but it almost had me laughing out loud as I was reading it for the first time. And the second. And the ...

My 3rd challenge book was Fever by John G. Fuller. This is a true story about the hunt for a killer virus, mostly taking place in Nigeria with research taking place in the USA. I really enjoyed this book. It's amazing to find out how much goes into tracking down and dealing with a new virus.

I think this is definitely a medical condition if you call "diet" or "thin" medical conditions and I surely do. The book is by Joy Bauer and Carol Svec and it is called JOY'S LIFE DIET: FOUR STEPS TO THIN FOREVER. She is on tv with tips about this on one of the morning shows and it isn't hard to follow. It is common sense, less in, more exercise type thing but worth a shot as it isn't a crazy diet and with the world being overweight (and that's me, too) anything we can do to help counts! I reviewed it on Ijustfinish.com and here is the link

My pick for this category is:
Faefever, by Karen Marie Moning
(I figure a fever is a medical condition, and Faefever is a medical emergency) :)

I didn't write a review for this book, so I will just post some thoughts here.

This is the third book in the Fever series, by Karen Marie Moning. I am in love with the series, but found this third book lacking a lot of what I loved about the first two. This book felt like a bridge between the second and fourth books.

That having been said, I am not deterred, and still plan on reading the next book...the story line is too good to leave it, now!

I am hoping I can count "The Strain" by Guilermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, since the title refers to a virus outbreak...and vampires!!! :)

I've decided to use Her Fearful Symmetry for a title with a medical condition, considering that fears can be medical phobias. My review is here.

I read "Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict" by Laurie Viera Rigler. There is now a second book I would like to read - it is just so hard to find enough time to read all of the books I want to read!
