In case you weren’t aware, Ramadan has just started this year and I rely on reading during this time to make the time go faster. This year, I am planning on participating in the Ramadan Readathon run by Headscarves and Hardbacks and I think I might have the right books to complete the Hajj pilar. However, I gathered up all of the books by Muslim authors that I have on my physical TBR and I want to get through them all during Ramadan this year and I think they all fit the briefs.
Restore Me and Defy Me by Tahereh Mafi
I had no intention of carrying on with this series when the new books were added however, I recently saw all of them in a shop for super cheap so I decided to pick them all up and finally carry on with this series. I’m definitely going to need a recap of the first three because it’s been 5 years since Ignite Me came out but I know that there are some on recaptains so I will definitely look at it before carrying on. This would tick my free space box as it doesn’t fit any of the other requirements.
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi
I’ve owned this book for years and I’m so mad at myself for not reading it already. I don’t read a lot of Middle Grade books but I’m determined to give this one a try.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I know, I’m terrible. I own the first two books in this series but I haven’t read either of them yet which is just ridiculous. I am determined to finally binge-read the first three books in this quartet this Ramadan so I can finally understand all of the hype. I’m hoping these books tick the box of involving a journey for the challenge.
And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
I have owned this book years and I’ve been wanting to read it, especially since I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns. However, I know that this book is probably going to be very sad like A Thousand Splendid Suns was so I ‘ve been putting it off but not anymore. This would tick the box of non-western setting as well as adult fiction.
The Lines We Cross by Randa-Abdel Fatteh
This is a book I have debating unhauling for years. I received it unsolicited for review from the publisher but the blurb made me hesitant. I’m not sure if I’m going to like this book but I’m determined to at least give it a try finally.
Ms Marvel Volume 2 by G Willow Wilson
I recently won Kindle Unlimited through the McDonalds Monopoly and I noticed that this was on there so I decided to download it and add it to my #RamadanReadathon TBR. I really enjoyed the first volume and I’m anticipating loving the second. I think this could also fit the challenge of reading a book with no romance in it, if Furthermore doesn’t fit it.
So that’s my TBR for the #RamadanReadathon. Are you planning on participating? Let me know down below what you plan on reading. Also let me know what are some of your favourite books by Muslim authors? I might do a recommendations post towards the end of this month once I’ve read all of these as to which are my favourites.
