Monthly Rewind: October 2019

B O O K S

During the month of October, I read 4 books. As we reach the end of the year, my reading time really limits because of university. (May feels like a lifetime away right now, but I know it’ll be here in a blink of an eye 😂) But I really enjoyed the books I read this month!

Don’t Date Rosa Santos

“Don’t Date Rosa Santos was delightful and moving. Its emphasis on family and community makes it such a touching read, and one of my most surprising reads of the year. It really was something special.” Read my review here!

Crier’s War

One of YA’s biggest releases this year, and I really enjoyed it! It was a fun exciting read about two girls, one human, one Made, falling in love in amidst of a human revolution. It’s advertised as an epic fantasy but it felt more low key.

Other Words for Home

A sweet novel in verse about a young Syrian girl who moves to the US. It’s one of those stories that I wished existed when I was younger.

Goddess of the Hunt

A poetry collection about Artemis, Greek Goddess of the Hunt. Told through the perspective of Artemis with contribution of other Goddesses.

Monthly Rewind: March 2019

During the month of March, I managed to read 10 books. How I managed that is beyond me. This month felt like two months.

The Infinite
I completely forgot to write a review for this but I LOVED it. I heard this series was hyped a lot when it was first out, and it’s a shame I missed it all in my early blog days! I really want to see how this series end but this came out in 2015! And I haven’t found anything that suggests the final book any time soon.

Rilakkuma
Super cute, and adorable. Really short. Works well as a great pick-me-up read.

The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali
From my review: “The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali is an emotional, page-turning read. It’s personal and bold, with a hopeful and happy ending. Khan is making a splash with her brilliant debut novel that and I can’t wait to read more from her in the future. ”

It’s Not About The Burqa
“A much-needed collection of essays from Muslim women on faith, feminism and sexuality as a Muslim woman.” My short review
