Am I going to survive these 4 challenges?
Probably not. But I’m determined to do so. Otherwise, I’ll be beyond super disappointed with myself.
Hey there amigos!! Welcome back. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
Today, I’ll be signing up for the Unapologetically Muslim Reading Challenge that is being hosted by the lovely Noura @ The Perks of Being Noura.
Lately, I’ve been wanting to read more books by Muslim authors, but I haven’t really started reading them or consciously seeking them out. But this reading challenge is hopefully gonna change that!
- Let Noura know if you’re going to participate on any platform you feel comfortable with! (Blog, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)
- Share whatever reads you intend to tackle. It doesn’t have to be a set TBR and you can change the books whenever you want.
- Share your reads by tagging Noura and use the hashtag #Unapollogeticallymuslim2020
- If the book is by a Muslim author, it counts. Release date, genre, length, etc, doesn’t matter.
- The challenge runs between April 2nd and December 31st.
And that’s it! As Noura said, “This isn’t really a challenge it’s mostly to support Muslim authors so no rivalry here.”
So, there’s no levels or anything, and I think that’s pretty cool. Sure having the levels and the competition of reading more than someone else is motivating, but I still kind of prefer this way so that I don’t feel too bad about it if I don’t read so much.
I’m super excited, and I’ve decided to make a TBR of 5 books to at least get me started. Hopefully I’ll read much more than that.
- Thorn by Intisar Khanani – 🍚 📱 | I saw Kerys blog tour review for this book and it sounded awesome, and the author is Muslim, so it’s a total win win!
- A Light at the End of the Tunnel by Sumaiya Beshir – ☪ 📗 | My mom got this book a long time ago, and well, it’s probably about time that I read it.
- The Memory of Hands by Reshma Baig – ☪ 📗 | My mom also got this one, and I think I’ve skimmed through it before, but I haven’t actually read it. Hopefully it’s interesting.
- When Wings Expand by Mehded Maryam Sinclair – ☪ 🍚 📗 | This one is so sad, and I have read bits and pieces of it, but I want to read it properly once again.
- Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed – ☪ 🍚 📱 | Muslim romance story? Yes please! I’ve seen this book around a couple of times, and the cover is gorgeous, so I am really excited.
That’s it folks!! Hope you’re having a wonderful day, and that you’re all staying safe.
