The Ramadan Readathon Book Tag was created by Amna at YA Book Corner as a part of this year’s Ramadan Readathon.
~*Mirrors and Windows*~
Name a book that you felt represented you or that you were able to relate to.
There are many books that depict some of my marginalisations, but I’m choosing Queens of Geek because through Charlie it represents my bisexuality, and through Taylor it represents my anxiety and body type. How to Make a Wish also represents my bisexuality really well.
~*My Muslim Hero/Heroine*~
Name your favorite Muslim character and explain why.
I think my favourite Muslim character is Nahri from City of Brass, because she is badass as HELL and I think I could learn a lot of really cool skills from her, such as lock-picking (and other nefarious things!)
~*Patience is a virtue*~
Name your most anticipated read by a Muslim author.
Definitely The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty! This is the sequel to The City of Brass, and it will be coming out in January 2019. That’s too long to wait!
Name your favorite Muslim author.
This will have to be Muhammad Khan – I had the privilege of hearing him speak and talking to him at a book event for I Am Thunder, and I thought he was so articulate and sensitive about the book he wrote.
~*The Muslim Shelf*~
Recommend one book by a Muslim author that everyone should read.
I originally chose Love Hate and Other Filters but after a comment from The Last Chapter I’ve decided to change my answer to Persepolis!
