I always talk about Islamic-fiction… or try to, anyway, since it’s something verrryyyy important to me – and despite this, I fully understand that the majority of my readers may be completely inexperienced with the type of Islamic-fiction that I love and want more of, instead of the more mainstream books termed as being “Islamic-fiction” when actually there couldn’t be a bigger contradiction. However, I also realise that not everyone can afford to broaden their horizons when it comes to purchasing books, so I thought offering online options would give people more of an opportunity to explore – and I just generally have some amazing Islamic-fiction recommendations that just so happen to be online (since I’d be fully prepared to pay for this stuff too tbh)!!!Continue reading “Favourite Online Islamic-Fiction! | Amazing Islamic-Fiction that you can read for FREE”
Title: Steelheart /Author: Brandon Sanderson/ Published: 2013/ DNF-ed
I thought I would LOVE this book. I tried so hard to love this book. Unfortunately, it ended up as another DNF for me, which I’m sad about. I got to about 100 pages until I realised it probably wasn’t going to get much better for me.
The beginning was strong, and threw me right into the realms of this well-crafted world, but then after that things began to go downhill for me and I realised I would probably enjoy another book more.Continue reading “Steelheart”
Ok when I say new I mean… really new. I mean it hasn’t been released yet and ARCs probably haven’t come out yet? Most of the books here are super super new as in no cover released either, but some of them do have covers so… fun! I thought I’d share them with you since the other day I went hunting for the books some of my favourite authors (Leigh Bardugo, V.E. Schwab, etc) are currently working on. So put these on your TBR so you don’t miss them!!!
Recently, I started Artemis by Andy Weir (and I DNFed it). I thought I’d make a short post explaining why I DNFed it, and there are actually a couple of reasons.
But first I’m going to start with why I decided to start reading it in the first place, and it’s simply because I LOVE The Martian by the same author and the space has always really intrigued me from a very young age so a city on the Moon is such an interesting prospect and one I would of course love to learn more about even if it’s fictitious because living on the Moon is a possibility, and could happen one day.
Who knows? So two things a) author and b) SPACE! So that’s what drew me in, now to discuss what put me off…
