RAMADAN READATHON: THE INTRODUCTION

If you follow me over on Twitter, you’ll probably know that I am co-hosting a readathon next month with Zoya @ We Are All Critics! We are so excited and also overwhelmed by all the support we have received so far. We have some incredible things already lined up including author interviews, Twitter chats and giveaways, and we hope to post a schedule at the end of this month so you know what’s happening where and when. In the meantime, this is a short introduction post explaining why we are doing it and how you can get involved!Read More »

RAMADAN READATHON: RECOMMENDATIONS #1 – MG, YA & ADULT FICTION

Hi everyone!

As the month of June quickly approaches, it’s time to start thinking about your TBR for the month. In the announcement post, we mentioned a few places where you can find books written by Muslim authors, but we also wanted to create our own list of recommendations even though, between us, we haven’t read the majority of books on it. As always, this list is not exhaustive. We actually had to narrow it down!

We also tried to include books from across a range of genres and therefore this will be one half of a two-part post. Here, you’ll find recommendations for middle-grade, young adult and adult fiction. If you’re interested in non-fiction, poetry or graphic novels, you can find a list of these over on Zoya’s blog.Read More »

APRIL WRAP-UP + MAY ANTICIPATED READS

So April was a lot more stressful than I thought it would be. You would think no deadlines = no stress, but apparently it doesn’t work like that. I read a total of four books, which is one less than I was planning to but three of them were five star reads so I’m not really complaining. I also went to my first book signing, and tried and failed at CampNaNoWriMo but we don’t need to talk about that.

I spent some time at the beginning of the month changing my blog design, which you may or may not have noticed. Mostly, I just changed the colour scheme but I’m still not completely happy with it. I just don’t think it reflects the blogger or the content so I guess it’s still a work in progress. Since I have exams until the end of May, I haven’t set myself many goals for the month. The plan is to read whatever I feel like reading, instead of making a list like I usually do. I’m feeling both relieved and nervous about wrapping up my second year at university, but I’m definitely excited for what lies ahead.
