  2. Christine Jenkins says

    Thanks for choosing Spectrum Women #spectrumwomen at 2:00. Please add a link to our magazine

  3. Cara Labbe says

    I loved Aspergirls by Rudy Simone. It was the first time in 30 years that I felt I had found my tribe! Great read!

  4. 21and sensory says

    Such a great video!!! ☺️

  5. Meret Röthlin says

    Wow, now my tbr is even longer, oops. 'On the Edge of Gone' by Corinne Duyvis is an amazing sci-fi book with a main character on the spectrum and an autistic author. A comet is about to hit earth and Denise and her (drug addict) mother are late for their entry into a shelter because her (trans) sister hasn't come home from a trip. Through a chance encounter they discover a generation ship meant to leave earth, which stands a much higher chance of survival. But Denise isn't sure they'll be allowed onto the ship and she still doesn't know where her sister is.
    I can't recommend it enough.

    So, I paused this so that I wouldn't forget to share my amusement at 14:36 when you have just finished saying how these next fiction books gave you a lighthearted break from the heavier nonfiction books this year, and then your first example is Mockingbird in which a girl is dealing with grief. 😃 I couldn't help laughing about this irony.

  7. Raul Portales says

    Oh, I've only read 2 of those list… "Odd Girl Out" is indeed interesting. On a similar line, I enjoyed "Look me in the eye", I have "The Rosie Project" in my to-read list

  8. Natalia C. Manzano Pérez says

    "The reason I jump" is brilliant.

  9. Cecily Haag says

    My favorite is "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" by Johnathan Safran Foer. This isn't very clearly autism related, because it is never said that Oskar actually has autism, but it is suggested in the feel and the way he thinks. The book is about Oskar Shell, a 9-year-old boy whose father died at 9/11. He finds a key in a vase that was his fathers and he starts a journey to see what the key belongs to. It is at the same time a journey to help him deal with the loss of his father.
    Another great read, and very different and more light weight would be "The Rosie Project" (and the sequal: "The Rosie Effect"), about a proffessor that has aspergers (I don't think it is actually said in the books, but it is very clear he has aspergers) and tries to find a wife. I thought the second book was slightly better and it is also possible to only read the second book. It is a very fun and funny read.

  10. Tamas Marcuis says

    Would it be reasonable to say there is little difference between male and females on the spectrum? Or to say another way, male aspies are more like female aspies than they are like average males. With the same for female aspies.

  11. Starr y says

    What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum has a male autistic lead and I finished it in one day. On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis is a sci-fi ya book with a hint of lgbt+ representation and it was a stunning read! The main character is autistic and I found her representation so interesting. Corinne herself is autistic so you know it's a genuine rep.

  12. Green Roc says

    My fav book is "Aspergers on the Inside" by Michelle Vines. She talks about her life, and how she got her diagnosis as an adult after she had a kid, and both ups and downs of relating to other people. Helped me feel better overall, as so many things in it, I was exclaiming "me too".

  13. E. S. Lavall says

    Followed you in GR straight away!

  14. Emma Fitzgibbon says

    What one book from your list would you want people who aren't on the spectrum to read? Love your festive jumper 🙂

  15. Heather Flock says

    I just finished reading The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night time yesterday. It was sooo good. I loved it!

  16. Heather Flock says

    I read Mockingbird about a year ago. It's definitely stereotypical, but is a very nice book.

  17. Darth Vader says

    Have u considered a video on sex and romance?

  18. bigdog tatman says

    Have you tried the books 600 hours of Edward, Edward adrift, Edward unspooled, Karen kingbury's unlocked

  19. nab 6215 says

    I love the animation! I read children's books as well. Sometime's they are a joyful break from the dreariness of today's world. I'm glad you're on Goodreads.

  20. nxgnmjdxnmcghnjxdr says

    YOU should write a book.

  21. Katie says

    I just finished "Kiss Quotient" and the main character is on the spectrum. It was a really enjoyable read.

  22. Di Jackson says

    Thanks for these! Another great one is The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. The author and her main character are both autistic. It's a really well written romance. Proper characters you can really root for. Lots of sex though, not for kids!!

  23. Weeping Willow says

    I love Aspergirls by Rudy Simone.

  24. Fanny Valentin says

    I greatly appreciate this video ❤️ thank you.

  25. katem says

    I'm going to go buy a couple of these now ! Thank you. Your channel has really helped me since being told I'm possibly on the spectrum recently (I'm 24). I have been told that they cannot diagnose me unless I have evidence of developmental problems as an infant which is annoying. I relate to this diagnose so much and it feels great to have a reason why I feel the way I do. I have been diagnosed with so many mental disorders in the past such as bipolar, OCD, panic disorder , social anxiety, agrophobia, general and anxiety and disordered eating problems. It's great to finally feel a diagnoses that fits me. Thank you for all the information 🙂
