I Should have Read that Book Tag – or alternatively, the title of my memoir


one of my favourite bloggers, olivia, tagged me in the ‘I Should Read That Book Tag’ which also happens to be the title of my memoir and this is just another great way to bully me into reading the books on my TBR and to stop me from rereading my favourite book, so thank you, olivia.

(also, olivia is an absolute queen at blogging, you should go check her out if you don’t already follow her bc the content she puts out is *chef’s kiss*)

August Reading Wrap Up – a month filled with thrillers and audiobooks


this truly was the month of thrillers. i don’t even know why i read so many, but it just felt right to scare myself this month :’)

August was actually pretty eventful. We had our Eid celebration at the VERY beginning of the month (Eid Mubarak to all those who celebrate!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰) and then comes the invitations with family and friends (which, i always look forward to).

aside from that, i’m back on my crap watching cooking shows for hours on end ✌️ there’s nothing that gets your heart racing like burning a dish you spent hours making. truly relatable

i’ve also had somewhat of a breakthrough on my art and im so very happy with where it’s going and im here to share just SOME of what i’ve been busy creating so,,,,,


but first, books,

The Pancake Book Tagh

so, a really, really,Β really long time ago, the lovely becky created this absolutely adorable pancake book tag and was so kind enough to tag me in it

anywho, much thanks goes to becky for creating such a cute, well-thought out tag and also creating the most precious graphics.

i absolutely adore pancakes, it’s one of my favourite things to make (and eat)

July Reading Wrap Up – where i slumped for 2 weeks and binged for 2 weeks βœŒοΈ

wrap up

july was, in short, a disaster. it’s what happens when you place responsibility and expectations on me, basically no turn out 😁 yay thats fun.

i pretty much spent the ENTIRE first half of the month watching booktube and cooking shows and completely ignored reading and my art and really, this is what my peak existence looks like.

but aren’t we ALL GLAD the reading rushβ„’ happened bc that was the ONLY thing that saved my reading career and gave me content for this wrap up.

ALSO I WANT TO MENTION, i feel absolutely CHEATED that i read over 500 pages of Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, that mammoth of a book and i am NOT allowed to include it in my wrap up bc i still have 500 pages to go.

what kind of discrimination is this??? i want to talk to the manager

ahem, anyways.

2019 bba

big, big THANKS to this monster, may @ forever and everly for hosting the Third Annual Book Bloggers Award, an award meant to boost and appreciate book bloggers for all their hard work and dedication. i could make this a long, sappy introduction on how great it is for may to be hosting this, but i’m already going to sap her later on in this post, so we can just skip all the semantics though, i would like to know how she manages to stay so organized and clear-headed with all the projects she takes on,,,,,,,,answer the question, may

this post took WAY too long for me to write and i know i’m pushing the deadline I’M SORRY i’m trying my best and this was way harder than i expected and i somehow forgot how to write and speak english for the past week, so everything sounds redundant and !!!! but we’re working with what we got.

so without further babbling, allow me to shower some beautiful, hard-working bloggers with love and validation bc i’m a sappy little potato πŸ₯”

~ also, i’m super sorry if you weren’t featured in this post, plz know that i couldn’t include ALL my favourite bloggers (that list would be endless) and that i still loves you and appreciate you ~

me @ you

so i’ve made a few changes around on this little blog, to make it more ~fancy~Β but the most monumental part of all my changes is that i have changed my PROFILE PICTURE (for the FIRST TIME in 4 years!!!!!) idk why i’m making such a big deal out of this but its a big deal to me. it feels so WEIRD to have a new picture omg

hijab take 3

so this is me now!!!

it took some time to draw, but i’m SO HAPPY with how it turned out 😭😭 and lowkey proud of myself for developing my art this far. what do you GUYS THINK???

February Wrap Up – !!21 books!! + read-a-thon, & failing YARC?

month wrap up final

this wrap up is like my ‘contemporary-a-thon reads ft. a couple other books’ bc after contemporary-a-thon i basically had a burnout and didn’t touch books for like 5 days, it was an Experience and not a good one. 10/10 people wouldn’t recommend.

i jest though, because in reality, i read 21 BOOKS IN 28 DAYS!??!??!!?


i am concerned for myself (and my social life) bc aside from the readathon, i didnt feel like i was pushing myself to read?? how does this make sense??

actually, the answer, as you will see, is ~*audiobooks*~

freaking life savers, those things.
