I know I haven’t done a book review in a while. I was trying to read more books, then I had kid, then I read some books, then kid got older and now its more like i’ll get to an occasional book. I have also been trying to read more on experiences of those similar to mine, including Autistic women, autistic parenting, women with PCOS and getting into other academia/sciences.
So for the new year, I thought I would make a list of books i’ve been looking at:
GOOD READS Books readings:
- A Song of Ice and Fire, Leather-Cloth Boxes Set by George R.R. Martin–yes, Shawn bought me the set for Christmas one year and I am trying to get thru these books. I love them, I know the book is thick reading. but I will make it. I have the same opinion about LOTR… I will be getting through it eventually
- Introducing Linguistics: A graphic Guide — I wanted to get an “intro” to this topic—but its still thick reading and fun reading the graphic.
- The Life Cycle Completed (Extended Version) : Review by Erik H Erikson–therapist recommended for understanding my PTSD from childhood
- Everyday Aspergers: A Journey on the Autism Spectrum by Samantha Craft– SUCH A GOOD BOOK and I enjoy reading its style. no major chapters.
- Red State Christians: Understanding the Voters Who Elected Donald Trump by Angela Denker– I know the author. I love her writing and research she did for this book. Give it a chance-no matter what side of the politics you’re on. Preface: its not what you think.
- Desperate: hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe: By Sarah Mae — church young child book group. Haven’t been in a while because we live fair away. But i enjoy the author
- Thriving with Adult ADHD: Skills to Strengthen Executivei Functioning by Phil Boissiere MFT– searched for some place to start. It’s not bad. Any recommendations on Adult ADHD are appreciated
- The Call of the Wild by Jack London — yep, saw movie, wanna read the book again
Others Books I would like to Read:
The Electricity of Every living Thing: A Woman’s Walk in the Wild to Find her way Home by Katherine May — youTuber book recommend. The YouTuber is autistic and I think the author is too.
Girls Who Code by Reshma Saujani– book from Shawn. I was/am looking into learning coding. I just have limited time so its a tinkering project right now.
Essentials of Psychology by Cherry/Mattiuzzi– one of those book you see on the shelf at Barnes & Nobles in the bargain section when you’re looking for quick books on subject topics that related to the novel you’re writing. It’s informative and got me interested in other subtopics of psychology.
Sensational Kids by Lucy Jane Miller–this is a recommendation from several with sensory processing kiddos and autistic kiddos. It’s the science behind another book I have already read so i’m just preparing for it right now.
An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth by Col. Chris Hadfield–because a Canadian astronaut is awesome!
The Gospel According to Disney by Pinsky– because how can I not own this? And it was a gift and I want to read it
I also have a couple friends who write/are professional writers who give me things that are not published or for sharing. Alongside the articles I read daily from wordpress.
