Before we start, if you have no idea what the ‘Ramadan Readathon’ is about, click here to see the intro post.

Salam everyone!

Time flies so quickly and Ramadan is only weeks away. We thought it would be sensible to post some recommendations in order to help you to plan your tbr list for next month’s #RamadanReadathon. These are all books by Muslim authors (mostly the hard-work of Nad) and though we’ve read some of them, quite a few of these are new to us too!

Since so many caught our eye, we’ve split the post between us. So if you are looking for anything fiction head over to Nad’s blog

Are there any books you think we’ve missed? What are you looking forward to reading the most? Are you going to join in with our readathon?  We’d love to hear what you think!

Happy reading!

  1. I’m reading The Things I Would Tell You! Really excited 🙂 I’m also really focused on reading books about mental health, so I’m going to read a memoir called Haldol and Hyacinths, which looks really interesting 🙂

    1. Not quite got to The Things I would Tell You yet but the blurb is hilarious and I’ve flicked to the poetry in it which is very nice too! Very excited as well. I’ll check out that memoir. 🙂
