Hey! I figured that we could have a thread where we recommend books throughout our pregnancies. They don't have to be pregnancy related either, but I'm sure there will be a bunch on here. So, as for pregnancy and parenting related books, what have you read that you think is helpful? What would you never recommend to anyone?
In the other category, what authors/books do you like to read in your spare time (if you have any)? Any favorites from the past year?
The Natural Pregnancy Book: Herbs, Nutrition and Other Holistic Choices by Aviva Jill Romm
Birthing from Within by Pam England
The Baby Book by Dr. Sears (really any of the Sears books)
Origins by Annie Murphy Paul (all about life in the womb)
Brain Rules for Baby by John Medina (all about brain development)
NurtureShock by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman (kind of a do's and don'ts with research)
Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn (every human should read this)
I'd never recommend any of the "What to Expect" books.
As for other books I've loved, I recently read The Hunger Games and loved them! I never would have said that I'm into sci-fi/fantasy, but I've been reading a lot of it lately. I also really love Tom Robbins, Carlos Ruiz Zafron, Margaret Atwood, Isabel Allende, Toni Morrison, J K Rowling and way too many more to name. I am definitely a self professed bibliophile!
