Welcome back to another Unapologetically Muslim post! to say I’m excited would be an understatement. I read Other Words For Home for the first time last year and I honestly can’t tell you how many tears I cried. That book touched me in so many ways, and in ways I wasn’t even expecting. It automatically became a favourite of mine. I got the chance to read The Shape of Thunder earlier this year and felt the exact same way. So it’s with a lot of excitement that I get to interview one of my favourite authors on the blog today!
Please welcome, Jasmine Warga!Read More »
Welcome to the first Unapologetically Muslim post of 2021! This project has been in the making for quite some time. I started this project with the Muslim bookish community in mind. This community has meant the world to me, and over the years we’ve had more and more authors and content creators graciously bringing our voices and stories to the forefront. I couldn’t be prouder of this community, and this is my way of contributing to it. This is in no way enough but I hope you’ll follow this project throughout the coming months, and that you’ll listen and uplift these wonderful people and their stories with me.
I’m so happy to be starting the project in this way and that’s by interviewing such a wonderful author on the blog today. I present to you Saadia Faruqi, author of A Thousand Questions, Yasmin, and A Place at the Table!Read More »
Hello hello lovely people and welcome to the Crowining Soul tour! This is the first blog tour by Qamar Blog Tours, a blog tour aiming to promote books by Muslim authors. On today’s post I’ll be bringing you my interview with Sahira Javaid!
About the Book
Author: Sahira Javaid / Genre: YA Fantasy / Publication Date: September 8, 2020
Be swept away in this unique fantasy debut from Sahira Javaid. A spellbinding adventure of belonging,
finding hope and where the price of a soul is another soul’s fate. Perfect for the fans of InuYasha,
Children of Blood and Bone and The Candle and The Flame.
Nezha Zaman considers her gift to control fire a dangerous secret. A secret that unravels when she encounters a
vengeful shadow jinni in a maze garden that has been stalking her family, and knows about her power. Weeks
after seeing the demonic being, Nezha is torn from her world through her backyard pond and transported into
another dimension which sought out the light inside her heart.
Nezha learns from two unicorns that the dimension is her family’s roots, and the light is a fragment of an angel’s
shattered soul. The three must work together to find the soul’s shards in a land teeming with shape-shifting jinn.
If Nezha fails to stop the corrupted Iron Prince, the malevolent jinn at his side will shatter her soul next.
