While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction. 




Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness - Susannah Cahalan Both utterly compelling, and lacking at the same time. I couldn't put down Susannah Cahalan's look into her own illness and finished it in an afternoon, but at the same time, I found myself skimming a lot.

With PANDAS causing OCD through autoimmune response to infection and Susannah's story of mental illness from autoimmune overreaction, it makes me hope that scientists and doctors take a good serious look into the currently unfounded theories that link the rise in allergies and other autoimmune disorders with the increase in Autism. Even if autoimmune illness only plays a factor in a percentage of the cases, it's worth the time to investigate.
