After reading Skunk Girl, I thought it would be fun to read more books that deal with Muslims. As a Muslim myself, there are not that many books about us and when there is, it isn't always in the best of light. Still, I wanted to read more books about Muslims, so I thought it would be fun to try a Muslim Reading Challenge. Not only because I wanted to see what was out there, but I also wanted to read a book and say, "Hey, I can relate to this."
If you have any books that come to mind, please let me know. I've made a list that is currently found on goodreads - you can see it here.
So far, I've read the following:
- Secrets of the Henna Girl by Sufiya Ahmed - review
- Love In A Headscarf by Shelina Zahra Janmohamed - review in progress
- Skunk Girl by Sheba Karim - review
- Girls of Riyadh by Rajaa Alsanea - review
I'm hoping that this will be a fun challenge. I'm usually a bit hard when it comes to books about Muslims, so I'm also hoping that this will help me not be so critical and enjoy the reading the experience.
Anywho, I'm excited to see what books I'll be able to read.
