Books I’ve recently read and LOVED

  • Puddin’ by Julie Murphy
  • The Forgotten daughter by Renita D’ Silva
  • We are displaced by Malala Yousafi
  • East of India by Erica Brown
  • The lost daughter of India by Sharon Maas
  • A little bit obsessed with novels with a strong heroine who overcomes adversity and I’m a little obsessed with Middle Eastern culture.. India is somewhere I long to experience although, it isn’t very wheelchair friendly. 😔
  • My top 5 books that feature a disabled character/ Theme

    1. Skallagrigg by William Horwood – A story about a boy with Cerebral Palsy in the 1930’s and a girl in 1970 who also has Cerebral Palsy and their search for the mystical skallagrigg sees their worlds collide. It’s also a look at the evolution of people’s attitudes towards people with disabilities. Plus Esther is badass!
    2. Amy and Matthew by Cammie McGovern – A cute little love story featuring Cerebral Palsy and OCD.
    3. House Rules by Jodi Picoult – A court room drama with an autistic main character.
