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. So in this post, I’m going to be going into detail as to why that is so.

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).

Review: “Yes, I’m Hot in This: The Hilarious Truth about Life in a Hijab” by Huda Fahmy

Hello/salaams everyone, welcome back to my blog! First book review of 2021 – woohoo! This is definitely an interesting one that I’ve heard about for a while. I was actually quite excited going into it and didn’t have particularly high expectations other than the fact that I was expecting to find it hilarious (it’s in the title), entertaining and relatable (it’s about life in a hijab… and my life is in a hijab… so really it makes sense). So let’s discuss!

Reflecting on January 2021 | Personal Reflection

Asalamualaikum/hello everyone and welcome back to my blog 🙂 Today’s post is a new kind of post I want to try out and is something a little more personal than I’m normally used to sharing on here – so let me know what you think about the change!

Usually on this blog, at the end of the month I have tended to do “monthly reading wrap-ups” but even though I have been reading this month, I haven’t managed to read a whole book. That being said, I thought it would be fun if I could personally share how I found this month as the first month in 2021… highlights, the good, the bad, general struggles, etc! I thought it would be interesting to reflect back on this month especially considering (being in the UK) it was the start of our third lockdown and so many things happened! I’m especially interested to also see your guys’ thoughts on this month as well and the different things I discuss 🙂
