#MuslimShelfSpace Recommendation List

Posted by

This recommendation list is partially inspired by recent events and also something I’ve wanted to do for a while. It is definitely the bare-minimum (probably not even that, tbh) and we all need to be supporting our Muslim-identifying authors, friends and foe. So here is a list of some wonderful books/authors you should have on your TBRs and should be supporting!! It is by no means a thorough list and a much much MUCH better resource would be the Hijabi Librarians blog

Rashika is a mysterious creature who likes to hide in the shadows and plan horrifying things. She also happens to have a huge sweet tooth so she will lure you over to the dark side with baked goodies and good book recommendations.

    I haven’t read most of the books on this list (I need to change that) except for The Gauntlet and Furthermore. I now have some ideas of what I can look for the next time I put books on hold at my local library. Great post!

    Many thanks for this list Rashika. It is so important for us to pass on the message that the vast majority of Muslims are kind, peaceful and ordinary people. We should be celebrating our differences not hiding in fear from them.
