Ramadan Readathon 2018 | Wrap-Up

Ramadan Readathon 2018 header

Eid Mubarak! I can’t believe we are already wrapping up another Ramadan and the second #RamadanReadathon! I hope everyone had a blessed and productive month. I definitely had less time this year to dedicate to the readathon but I did manage to read three of the four books on my TBR. All in all, I’m happy with how everything went and, with so many upcoming releases by Muslim authors this year and the next, I’m definitely hoping to bring back this reading challenge for Ramadan 2019!

If you followed along with the #RamadanReadathon blog tour, you’ll already know the titles of the fifteen books that were revealed over the course of the month. Once again, thank you to all the wonderful bloggers who took part in the book reveals! Here is a complete list of all the chosen books and posts:

Insta Challenge

Visit @MuslimReadathon on Instagram to see the responses to the weekly photo challenges! I found it more difficult to choose books for each of the prompts this year, and even more difficult to post on time since I was at work every Friday! Nevertheless, I love getting to take bookish photos for just one month in the year. I’m almost convinced by the end of the readathon to make an Instagram account for this blog…

You can also read my responses to the Ramadan Readathon book tagor visit the announcement post to see the responses of other bloggers linked in the comments. Thank you again to the lovely Amna @ YA Book Corner for creating it!

I read a total of three books for #RamadanReadathon this year, which isn’t as impressive as last year’s six. I have yet to review any of them but I honestly can’t express how much I loved A Map Of Salt And Stars by Zeyn Joukhadar! I definitely had flashbacks to reading When The Moon Was Ours by Nadia Hashimi for Ramadan Readathon last year. Both books are so timely, so important, so heart-breaking. Highly recommended as two of my all-time favourites!

And that’s a wrap on #RamadanReadathon for another year! Did you participate in this challenge? What was your favourite read? Would you like to see it return next year? I would love to hear any suggestions you have about how to make it even bigger and better!

  1. I’ve read and really enjoyed a number of the books you read for Ramadan. I learned so much about Islam, a religion I really wasn’t that familiar with. I also read The Reluctant Fundamentalist when it first came out and it was one of the most phenomenal books I’ve ever read. I really understood how and why young Muslim men could find fundamentalism so attractive given how they are treated by people in this country. I would recommend it to everyone interested in healing so much of America’s dislike for Islam, and nowadays sanctioned by our president.
