“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.” – George R.R. Martin
As George said, reading can take you into a million different worlds. You can be a pirate one day and a princess the next. Or a pirate princess if that’s your thing 🤷♀️.
In this blog, we’re cultivating all of those lives but with a Muslim spin. We’re looking for Muslim werewolves, pirates who pray Dhuhr, vampires who sleep all day during Ramadan, and fairies with pixie dust who don’t eat pork. We want romance, fantasy, suspense, horror, and science fiction with Muslim characters.
Sometimes we want to read about fiction that mirrors real life, so that’s where we want to talk about how Aisha is struggling to fit into her MSA at college because of racism or how Maryam is struggling in her quest to become an author. Whateverrrr the topic, if it’s Muslims and fiction…we want it, we wanna read it, and we wanna talk about it!
