For world autism awareness/acceptance day, read autistic writers!

If you want to learn about autism, the best way is to read the people who are autistic. Not people imagining what it’s like and writing about it. So for world autism awareness/acceptance day, a list of autistic authors/artists/writers/bloggers. This will obviously not be comprehensive, please feel free to add your own favourites in the […]

Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller

Otherworld – the game is compulsively playable. The book is compulsively readable. Utterly immersive, with a story that rocks along despite its main character striving to be unlikeable. He’s not fond of himself, and doesn’t see why anyone else would feel otherwise. Give it a try, but make sure you’ve plenty of time. Once you […]

Buy M is for Autism at Amazon. Buy M is for Autism at JKP books. Buy M is for autism at Hive M. That’s what I’d like you to call me please. I’ll tell you why later. Welcome to M’s world. It’s tipsy-turvy, sweet and sour, and the beast of anxiety lurks outside classrooms ready to […]

Just finished One by @SarahCrossan and now want to read everything else she's ever written. But not shopping lists.

Empire (Chronicles of the Invaders 2) As a first book to kick off 2015, and my new Read 52 challenge, this has set the bar high – it’s an excellent read. I would recommend starting with Conquest (Chronicles of the Invaders 1), obviously if you’ve not already read it though (thought I’d reviewed it but […]

Independent Study (The Testing 2) Joelle Charbonneau

Independent Study is the second in The Testing series by Joelle Charbonneau. I reviewed the Testing last summer, and said at the time I thought that some of the comparisons with the Hunger Games were a little overplayed and a bit harsh. Do I still feel that way? Yes and no. This is a different […]

Acid by Emma Pass.

I’ve been struggling with reading recently. I’ve started lots of books, and got quite a way into some of them, got interrupted by life and just never really felt like going back. I hate it. It’s kind of untidy in my head, half started stories, but none of them dragging me back, all feeling rather […]
