Can you believe it’s almost Ramadan again?! The year has raced by! And of course, it’s time for another Ramadan Readathon and this year is going to be even better than the last!
This year there the reading challenge has a bingo card with prompts to help you choose books to read. Nadia, who runs the readathon, also has a spreadsheet of over 400 Muslim authored books to help you if you’re stuck for books to read.
There is also a weekly Instagram photo challenge based on the bingo card prompts. There will be a twitter chat during the month with Yasmin Rahman, the author of All the Things we never Said. There is even a book tag which you can all take part in!
Here is Nadia’s blog post with all the details and links and the sign up form.
So the pillar I chose is Shahadah (Faith) and these are the books I chose to read:
Free Space – Light Upon Light by Nur Fadhilah Wahid
Non-Fiction – Prayers of the Pious by Omar Suleiman
Historical Fiction – The Weight of our Sky by Hanna Alkaf
Recommended to You – Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson
Multiple Points of View – An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
And if I finish those then I will try to complete the Sawm (Fasting) pillar and read these books:
MG/YA Fiction – Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi
Sci-Fi or Fantasy – Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
Involves Food – Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin
Free Space – Reclaim your Heart by Yasmin Mogahed
Read in one Sitting – Yes, I’m Hot in This by Huda Fahmy
So these are the books I will read during Ramadan Readathon!
Will you be taking part? What books will you be reading?
