Who here doesn’t love Disney? I’m sure most of us grew up watching Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast, and have probably seen each about a hundred times! I for one grew up with many of these, and I even planned a rewatch of all my favorite classics this year.

Today’s post is going to be about  listing all the wonderful books you can read based on your favorite Disney animations.

4 Reasons to Read The Raven Boys

The Raven Boys was one of my most anticipated reads for this year.

I’ve put off reading it for so long because I was worried about all the hype that was surrounding it. Since I worried so much the book ended up siting on my shelf for around 4 years. I vowed to read it this year, and I finally did! The Raven Boys was an interesting read. I really enjoyed the story and characters. I was told the books after are even better than the first. I’ve already started The Dream Thieves!

So, if you need motivation to start this wonderful book, keep scrolling!

I believe that this book is very character driven which is one of the things I love. Not that it doesn’t have a plot, but you get to know each Raven boy in their own way. Also, most importantly we have Blue our main character. I really felt attached to the characters, and fell in love with them all pretty quickly.

Blue is eccentric with her very own sense of style and not at all psychic. Gansey was by far one of my favorites, and I will protect him at all costs. Ronan grew on me the further I got in the book. He isn’t easy to love but I ended up loving him regardless. Adam on the other hand has his own issues and I spent majority of the book wanting him to be okay. Noah is the cutest. I found him very weird in the beginning but with time I loved him just as much as the rest.

Books with Arab or Muslim characters

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.

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.

November & December Bingo Board Challenge + TBR

Another month and more books to read.

My previous bingo board was stressful, and I don’t think we need more of that do we?

So I decided that this bingo board will cover two month. Two months to fill in and to take our time reading some great books. I’ll be adding some books that I would like to finish before the end of the year. Some might contribute to the board and some might not.

If you plan on taking part in this do link me to your TBR! 🙂

Books by female Authors of color

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.
