FullSizeRender(13).jpg

Welcome Witches and Wizards to my 2nd post for #Potterheadreadalong19

Today’s post is all about book recommendations for you and the fellow Ravenclaw in your life. I’ve compiled a list of books that fit every trait that a Ravenclaw is known for. Plus some blue book recs too!

This post will also help in choosing your read for Harry Potter Board Game Reading Challenge if you’re taking part in that.

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

📘 Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I read Strange in 2018 and it became by far one of my favorite books. So complex and imaginative and it features a librarian going on an adventure! Just the book for Ravenclaws.

📘 A Wrinkle in Time  by Madeleine L’Engle

A Wrinkle in Time was a pretty strange little book but with lots of knowledge which I think every Ravenclaw would appreciate.

📘 A Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I can assure you that Sorcery of Thorns is a Ravenclaw book. Our main character lives in a great library where they keep magical Grimoires in check. Also, the books whisper and some talk!

Books with Arab or Muslim characters

img_4896
It means a lot to me to be represented in books whether as a Muslim or an Arab.

I did some research and found some YA books that have either Muslim or Arab/Middle Eastern characters (Not necessarily both). My goal for this year is to read as many of these books as possible. I’ve noticed that I’ve read close to nothing, but hopefully I’ll be changing that soon.

IMG_4759.JPG

Welcome Witches and Wizards to my 1st post for #Potterheadreadalong19

Today’s post is all about book recommendations for you and the fellow Slytherins in your life. I’ve compiled a list of books that fit every trait that a Slytherin is known for. Plus some green book recs too!

 

This post will also help in choosing your read for Harry Potter Board Game Reading Challenge if you’re taking part in that.

Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.

 

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo from 20 Books for Slytherins | Bookriot.com   Image result for vicious ve schwab  Image result for vengeful v.e. schwab

I can’t recommend this book enough for Slytherins. Are you looking for a book with cunning, cleaver and ambitious characters and plot? this here is a book you should definitely try.

Vicious is another book that should be at the top of your reading list. I read it this year and I can’t explain how happy I am that I picked it up. The anti-hero/villain plot is so complex and just such an amazingly written book. Vengeful is just as good as the first one too!

Hispanic book list

Representation is something that each of us is looking for in their own way.

It can be hard to find a book that you can resonate with. I’ve put together a list of books with hispanic main characters and by hispanic authors. Some have been released and some will release in 2019. Either way I hope you find new favorites.

Books by female Authors of color

FullSizeRender (9).jpg

Today’s post is all about female authors of color and their amazing books!

Some I’ve read and some I haven’t, but I’ve included reviews for some of these books in hopes that readers (Including me) will decide to pick up these books some time soon. And to support the bloggers who wrote reviews features!

Every blogger featured on this page wrote a wonderful review. The point of including their reviews is for readers to get to know more book bloggers. Also to recognize the amount of effort each one put in his or her review. Blogging is a lot of work and I hope you’ll decide to support these bloggers (and authors of course!) for what they do.
