Ramadan Readathon

Ramadan Readathon Wrap Up

So I took part in Ramadan Readathon again this year where I focused my TBR during Ramadan on books by Muslim authors or had muslim characters and I also took part in the photo challenge over on Instagram. And I really enjoyed it! It gave me a chance to share books that I may not share as often and talk about Ramadan with fellow bookstagrammers.

So the books I read this Ramadan are:

  • The Map of Salt and Stars by Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar
  • The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani
  • When Wings Expand by Mehdad Maryam Sinclair

I also read sections of:

  • Reclaim Your Heart by Yasmin Mogahed
  • A Treasury of Ghazali by Mustafa Abu Sway

Not as much as I had hoped but I had a really busy Ramdan! So I think I did quite well!

I thought I would also share the photo challenge on here too as I had such fun choosing the books for the prompts!

1 Ramadan Readathon TBR – So these are the books I originally chose for the readathon but I am the worst at sticking to my TBR!

2 Spell Ramadan with book spines – I actually managed to use all books by Muslim authors!

3 Muslim character you want to befriend – I adore Samirah from the Magnus Chase books! She’s such a badass and so unapologetically Muslim and I just loved that about her!

4 Books you shouldn’t read while fasting – Oh man there’s so many food references in these books that will leave your mouth watering!

I would definitely recommend you all check these books out too! I’ve read most and loved them and the rest are high on my TBR!

So that’s another Ramadan over! I cannot believe how quickly it’s come and gone again for another year! I hope you all had a wonderful Ramadan and Eid Mubarak!

So I wanted to share my TBR for Ramadan. It’s a combination of fiction and non-fiction books and one book that is a re-read.

These are the books I’m hoping to read this Ramadan. It’s overly ambitious and may not get to them all but I’m looking forward to reading these!

The Ducktrinors by Papatia Fauxzar

When Wings Expand by Mehded Maryam Sinclair

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

A Treasury of Ghazali by Mustafa Abu Sway

Reclaim Your Heart by Yasmin Mogahed

The first three books I have been wanting to read for ages so I’m excited to finally get to them. I’ve had some of them on my shelf for ages so I really want to read them. I keep hearing really great things about them.

I recently started The City of Brass so I’m hoping to finish it. What I’ve read so far I have found so interesting and I love the references to Islam and the world building is amazing.

Reclaim Your Heart is one of my all time favourite books! I’ve read it multiple times and often go back to read some chapters. Yasmin Mogahed is a huge role model for me and this book is amazing. So I want to reread sections of it again even if I can’t get through the whole book in Ramadan. It’s a book that will seriously make you reflect on life.

If you follow me on Instagram (@thetsundokuchronicles) I will be sharing more throughout Ramadan. If you’ve read any of these books do let me know your thoughts!

Ramadan Readathon Book Tag

~*Mirrors and Windows*~

Name a book that you felt represented you or that you were able to relate to.

Does My Head Look Big In This by Randa Abdel Fattah. I loved the way the main character, Amal, has to deal with all that comes from living in the west and feeling the odd one out and sticking to her faith.

~*My Muslim Hero/Heroine*~

Name your favorite Muslim character and explain why.

The book this character is in isn’t by a muslim author but it still has great muslim rep! I love Samirah Al-Abbas from the Magnus Chase trilogy by Rick Riordan. She is strong and independent yet still holds on to her faith. She’s a complete badass and so unapologetically muslim.

~*Patience is a virtue*~

Name your most anticipated read by a Muslim author.

Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir! I have been waiting for this book for so long!

~*Muslim Scribe*~

Name your favorite Muslim author.

Sabaa Tahir and Aisha Saeed I love both of them! Don’t make me choose!

~*The Muslim Shelf*~

Recommend one book by a Muslim author that everyone should read.

As Amal Unbound is the most recent book that I read and cannot stop thinking about, I’m going to say that everyone should read it! It’s seriously amazing!

Really enjoyed this tag! Let me know what your answers would be!
