Nonfiction November – Be the Expert #NonficNov

Spread the love

Nonfiction NovemberI’m participating for the first time in an event called Nonfiction November. I wish I had known about this sooner as it’s perfect for this blog.

This week’s prompt is from JulzReads and goes like this:

Three ways to join in this week! You can either share three or more books on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert), you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic that you have been dying to read (ask the expert), or you can create your own list of books on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).

I’ve been book blogging for 15 years so there are a few topics I’ve read a LOT of books on. But I’m going to share two subjects. Please keep in mind that many of these reviews are VERY OLD and aren’t as detailed and well-written as my reviews are now, although they have been updated. However the books are still awesome.


Okay so this is kind of cheating since I”ve also been pregnant 4 times so I have lots of experience first hand as well but here are the books that really help you learn about pregnancy:

Rediscovering Birth by Sheila Kitzinger – full of photos of parts of birth you don’t normally see and info on how birth differs in other countries

Your Best Birth by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein – how to have the best birth you can and yes this is by THAT Ricki Lake

Mommy MD Guides (Pregnancy and First Year) – great guides full of facts and info


I don’t have a kid with Autism but I’ve always been fascinated with it and like to read about it.

Let Me Hear Your Voice: A Family’s Triumph Over Autism by Catherine Maurice – the book that inspired my interest in Autism to begin with

A Child’s Journey Out of Autism by Leeann Whiffen – a book about a child who was CURED of Autism

There’s a Boy in Here by Judy Barron – written by the parents AND the child with Autism.

Thanks for reading and let me know if you’ve read any good books on Pregnancy or Autism.
