I finished my first book of the year! I read Autism in Heels by Jennifer Cook O'Toole. This is part autism memoir and part guide/help-book written by a woman with autism (in the older classification, Asperger's). I found it an interesting read. There were some parts I didn't quite identify with, but for the most part I really recognised a lot of things. I couldn't quite relate to some aspects of Jennifer's life, as she is an extrovert and I'm very much an introvert. I really liked the check-list in the book and the executive functioning chapter. Trigger warnings are given in the beginning of two chapters, one chapter is about abuse and the other is about self-harm and eating disorders. The chapter about abuse was a bit harder to read and I felt for Jennifer and just wanted to slap the abuser in his face (not that I ever would).

 

Overall I quite enjoyed reading this book :). I think it's a book I'll be re-reading at some point.
