Kissing the Virgin's Mouth

By Danna M. Gershten

This is the book I was reading while reading Rethinking Rape. I started at the end of February, traveling to Basel. At first I found it kind of irritating. I didn't quite like the narrator, she sounded a bit fake. But as I kept reading I started to understand her more, which was quite interesting. I also find it incredible that the author is not Mexican. She sure made the main character look like one.

Rethinking Rape

By Ann J. Cahill

Took me a while to finish this one. (Though not as long as it may seem - I did finish it about 2 weeks ago, and read another book while reading this one). Which is understandable - it's an essay book, not a story. It did finally answer some of the questions I had about the subject.
