    This is the first contemporary I’ve read with a muslim main character and damn I was excited as heck but also so fricken worried that it would show a bad representation of islam The first thing I think all people need to understand is that the religion of islam is perfect but muslims are not We all have faults and its not about judging and

    This is very different from Love from A to Z my first book from this author but still really well written and Janna the heroine easy to understand and like She a Muslim was abused by a Muslim boy She doesn't know what to do how to deal who to open up to about it Meanwhile a non Muslim boy is interested in her and she in him despite her brother's pressure to date within the Muslim community This is a story about Muslim culture and

    This was such a great contemporary with the right amount of fluff heavier topics and diversityI actually was not expecting this book to handle such heavy topics like rape sexual assault but I felt like that really added a lot to the story and made it even poignantI was also very excited to read this for the Muslim rep that I’d heard was

    Trigger warning sexual assault photos posted on the internet of the MC without her hijab without her consent disrespect of the MC’s faith with ignorant comments and microagressionsIt’s so hard to articulate my thoughts because there are so many things I want to talk about and I’m afraid I won’t do the book any justice Which I’m pre

Saints Misfits Monster and Mayhem

8 Hours and 5 MinutesThere are three kinds of people in my world1 Saints those special people moving the world forward Sometimes you glaze over them Or at least I do They’re in your face so much you can’t see them like how you can’t see your nose2 Misfits people who don’t be Full review The review includes one unmarked spoiler There is a warning before it is stated When I heard this book is about a Muslim MC I bumped it right up to the top of my TBR because this is the first time I hear of a book portraying Islam I admit I was very scared to see how my religion was going to be portrayed especially when we live in a world where Islam is associated with stereotypes and bad generalizations and many false negative ideas so I was deeply hoping this book would portray the religion as is I have so much to say about this book since it is very important to me I ll try to cover everything I remember Janna is a Muslim Egyptian Indian teen living in the USA and like any other teen she encounters the regular day to day issues a teen encounters but she encounters additional issues because she is Muslim But the thing is Janna is continuously criticized and as a Muslim I go through that In this book it is clearly shown how Muslims are always criticized and expected to be perfect The thing is Muslims are not perfect We like any other human being make mistakes Just because we re Muslims does not mean we are unallowed to make mistakes Some people who don t understand our religion think the religion is faulty and they believe it when the media presents false ideas and brainwashes people who are too simple minded to use their brain and think Our religion is a beautiful religion that s for sure but what s not for sure is that every Muslim is perfect We are not perfect yet we try to follow our religion as much as we are able to Unfortunately there are also Muslims who are Muslims by name and nothing The first scene in the book is very powerful It shows Janna wearing a burkini and her dad criticizing that That brings about the wide spread false idea that Muslim women wearing the hijab are oppressed Janna tells her dad that it is her choice she wears the hijab and it is not anyone else s choiceJanna is continuously criticized by her family and friends Just because she is a hijabi Muslim they think it is okay to put that label on her Wrong Yes being a hijabi Muslim is a big part of her identity but it does not constitute 100% of who she is Janna is so much than that And all Muslims are much than that label automatically put on them We are our preferences our likes our dislikes our hobbies our thoughts our personality our friendships And I just wish people would remember that every time they encounter a Muslim and not just automatically assume all those stereotypes and generalizations that go aroundWhat I didn t expect is that the book is dark So don t expect a fluffy contemporary Janna is almost raped by a Muslim guy who s viewed as perfect just because he memorized the uran and she s too scared to tell anyone because who would believe her word against a word of a perfect and pious man That s a big example of a Muslim individual by name only Memorizing the uran is something amazing that s for sure However what s the point in memorizing it and not following its core messages What s the point of memorizing it and not understanding and following what it calls for Your cousin ruined himself And you enable it with your stupid belief that just because he memorized the ur an he s untouchable The ur an is a book of messages And he didn t get one of the main ones in it respect My only complaint is how the hijab was portrayed SPOILER AHEAD Janna has a crush on a non Muslin boy and during gym class she took off her hijab which is okay when the room is only full of girls However what happens is the boy she has a crush on comes in unannounced and see Janna hijab less Janna instead of doing what is logical ie covering herselfhiding and askingdemanding him to leave she stood there all frozen and even curled her hair the next day I was not okay with that Yes Janna is a teen and she is young but when you choose to wear the hijab Janna has been wearing it for 3 years you have an obligation and a commitment towards it and you can t just disrespect itEND OF SPOILER Janna goes through tough situations in the book all related to her being a hijabi Muslim teen I loved Janna s family particularly her brother She has such a beautiful relationship with him despite being tense at some times That s completely normal Also her relationship with Mr Ram who is viewed as a mentor to her and understands her love for literature In addition to that Janna s friendships Tats Sarah Sausun those ladies took me by surprise to be honest They turned out strong in their own way The characters in this book are one of the strongest points in it This book is so character driven and so diverse in personality It s greatI loved how easy SK Ali explained Islam and its guidelines and its core values It wasn t complicated and it was done just right and I thank her so much for that and I hope she continues writing books with Muslim MCs because the book community is in dire need for such books So if you decide to read the book and you are unfamiliar with Islam don t worry this book will explain the religion in a very simplistic and clear wayYes I struggled big time with the writing and the pacing of the book It took me over a month to read I struggled a lot with the first 50% of it to the extent I put it on hold for a few days but a nagging voice in my head made me pick it up again because of how important that book is I m so glad I did It got extremely better in the second halfSo read this book guys It s very important Update 2672017 Yes I am indeed back to this book Ignore the fact that I put it on hold a few days ago I m a mess okay someone save me from myself Anywaaaaay I m determined to finish it this time Update 1872017 So I ve been reading this book for a month so far and I haven t made it to 50% It s just so utterly boring and I have zero motivation to continue it I tried to push myself to read it because it is an important for me as it has Muslim rep but I just can t force myself any As much as it pains to do this I m going to have to DNF this for now I may decide to continue this someday Who knows 1362017 A YA book with a Muslim teen You bet I ll be breaking my ebook ban for it The rep better be well done or I ll cry Buddy reading with Em May and Prag Daddy By Choice you glaze over them Or at least I do They’re in Stealing Kisses your face so much One Breathless Night / Insatiable you can’t see them like how Old Flame, New Sparks you can’t see Lone Star Baby Bombshell your nose2 Misfits people who don’t be Full review The review includes one unmarked spoiler There is a warning before it is stated When I heard this book is about a Muslim MC I bumped it right up to the
