RAMADAN READATHON: THE WRAP-UP

By the time you read this, #RamadanReadathon will already be over in many parts of the world. As the month draws to an end, it’s time to reflect on how successful it’s been, discuss what lies ahead, and to catch up on anything you may have missed.

From the readathon, to blog posts, author interviews, giveaways and Twitter chats, it’s been such a busy month at Ramadan Readathon HQ but it has most definitely paid off. Zoya and I can’t thank everyone enough for your support of this initiative – fellow bloggers, authors and publishers – and although this was originally a one-off event, it’s clear now that we are only just beginning. I’m really looking forward to what lies ahead in terms of this readathon, as well as branching out and finding other ways we can support Muslim voices in the wake of widespread Islamophobia.

Here, you’ll find links to all of our posts, author interviews and Twitter chats, as well as my own reviews of the six books I managed to read!

  1. This was such a fantastic readathon, thank you so much! Although I only managed to read two books, your recommendations have pretty much all gone on my TBR. I’d definitely like to do this again next year 🙂
