The Truth About Today’s So-Called “Islamic-Fiction”

Hey everyone! Today’s post is extremely long-awaited (for me, anyways). I’ve always talked about Islamic-fiction on my blog and how much it means to me, but I have also talked about how much the so-called “Islamic-fiction” books these days have left me so disappointed.

Why I Don’t Want to Read YA Anymore

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know I basically live and breathe YA books, so this is something pretty big. Recently, I did a post titled “The Sad Truth about Reading Fiction”, and after publishing it I realised I managed to overlook the primary reason why I have decided I need to stop reading YA books, and how it is not just because I’m getting bored of genres like YA fantasy (where you can read a thousand books by simply reading one).

Hey everyone! I’m finally joining this amazing meme again, hosted by my friend the lovely Rukky @ Eternity Reads!

The Issue of Writing “What You Know”

Hello everyone… welcome to another post on writing! Yay! Even though I haven’t been writing loads lately, I’m still always down to have a long chat about writing lol. Today’s post is something I’ve been struggling with ever since I’ve tried to write an Islamic-fiction book (since I stopped my fantasy novel… around two years ago)… and I’d love to discuss it with you guys because I definitely feel like there are two sides to this.

My 200+ page fantasy novel I started writing when I was 15/16

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going to be discussing the 200+ page fantasy novel I started writing when I was fifteen/sixteen years old – and didn’t end up finishing. Going through my draft and reading all the planning, brainstorming and world-building I did has been such a crazy and emotional experience and has filled me with so much nostalgia… I almost want to/am very tempted to go back, re-write it, and finish it!!
