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.
