April is Autism Awareness Month which is a campaign by the Autism Society to „promote autism awareness, autism acceptance and to draw attention to the tens of thousands facing an autism diagnosis each year.“ To show solidarity and go along with the Autism Awareness Day (April 2) motto „Light it up blue“, this week’s theme for Bookish Scene: Project 52 is „Blue Ombré Spines“ which not only was the perfect opportunity to show some of my favorite books but also to make use of the blue wall of my bedroom 😀
I actually found less books with pretty blue spines on my shelves than I had expected but surprisingly I liked all of them – except „The Ask and the Answer“ which I haven’t read yet but am going to start soon.
Unfortunately I don’t know any books that deal with autism except one or two thrillers where savants play a rather cliché’d role and I have to admit that most of my knowledge about autism comes from movies like „Rain Man“ or „Adam“ (which is one of my favorite movies, btw) so I don’t know if it’s actually accurate. But if you have any good on-topic book recommendations, let me know in the comments 😉
