Friday Favourites – Ships

This week’s Friday Favourites is about ships! So I will be sharing some of my favourite side character ships.

Muntadhir and Jamshid from The City of Brass – They have one hell of a rocky relationship with everything that happens in the trilogy but I am hoping they get a happy ending.

Jalal and Despina from The Wrath and the Dawn – Look all I’m saying is I would read a whole book about them because I loved them so much!

Benedikt and Marshall from These Violent Delights – Chloe is out to make them suffer with that ending in TVD and I need them to get a happy ending.

Sarah and Mohammad from Saints and Misfits – They are adorable and I am so excited to read their wedding in Misfit in Love!

Azriel and Gwyn from A Court of Silver Flames – They might not be an official couple but I am shipping them hard and I hope that they end up together.

Who are your favourite side character ships?

Friday Favourites – Non-Fiction Book Recommendations

This week’s Friday Favourites is about non-fiction books! I love reading non-fiction books from history to feminism to mental health topics and so much more. I find them fascinating to read though they do take longer than my fiction books especially as I annotate and highlight away.

So here are some of my faves:

The Five by Hallie Rubenhold – The most read of mine and one that had me burning with rage at the way people and history has treated these women while glamourising jack the ripper.

Amazing Muslims Who Changed the World by Burhana Islam – A book that go back to again and again and full of incredible people throughout Islamic history

Allah Loves by Omar Suleiman – A spiritually uplifting book which I benefit from reading again and again

Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig – I really love his books and this is no different.

Period Power by Nadya Okomoto – I loved the discussions around periods and especially how it affects women differently in different parts of the world.

Reclaim Your Heart by Yasmin Mogahed – This book is my absolute favourite and one that I go to again and got me through some really difficult times.

Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez – Another book that left me screaming in rage because this world is truly made only for men.

Boys Will be Boys by Clementine Ford – A follow up book of Fight Like A Girl which I had to read in small chunks because it was just so rage inducing but also discussing difficult topics that were often very difficult to read too but conversations need to happen about them.

Also I am currently reading The Muslim Problem by Tawseef Khan which is interesting so far and will be out in March.
