Hello everyone! So these last couple of days have been insane politics-wise, to say the least, most of which is because of the Muslim ban. Now, y’all know I’m a Muslim – if not, surprise! lol – so this affects me in a big way. However, I’m taking it in stride and have decided that my way to resist against the ban is through the best way I know how, sharing books with Muslims in it and/or by Muslims. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen that I have made lists of such books but I thought I’d share 10 of them on here. I hope you all enjoy and support these books by sharing, buying and reading them! Here we go….

  1. God Smites and Other Muslim Girl Problems* by Ishara Deen
  2. The Gauntlet* by Karuna Riazi
  3. Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age* by Amani Al-Khatahtbeh
  4. Generation M: Young Muslims Changing the World* by Shelina Janmohamed
  5. Skunk Girl* by Sheba Karim
  6. Jasmine Falling* by Shereen Malherbe
  7. She Wore Red Trainers* by Na’ima B. Robert
  8. Ms. Marvel Volume 1* by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona
  9. Written In The Stars* by Aisha Saeed
  10. Snow White: An Islamic Tale* by Fawzia Gilani and Shireen Adams

Aaaaaand that’s it for the 10! It was a lot harder than I thought to choose what books to put because I’m just like


with all the Muslim books I know of LOL. Thankfully for you, though, I have more comprehensive lists on Twitter (below) and on Goodreads, I’m creating a list on Amazon* and I’m hoping to add more to all of them later today!

Now, have you read any of the books on the above list? If so, which one(s) did you read and what did you think? Also, do you have any suggestions for other books?? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!

  4. I read God Smites and Other Muslim Girl Problems last week and I loved it, I’m so glad to see it on your list. I don’t know if you have read it already, but I really liked Sofia Khan is not Obliged and I have read reviews by some muslims women and they seem to find the representation accurate and not offensive. Now I’m definitely adding all the books on your list to my tbr. Great job!
