Ayesha At Last Review: AT LAST, the P+P Retelling I’ve Been Waiting For!

Ayesha At Last Review: AT LAST, the P+P Retelling I’ve Been Waiting For!

Pride & Prejudice + Muslim Remix = Perfect Romcom! Ayesha at Last was sweet, heartfelt, uplifting, and just perfect.

Although Descendant of the Crane has stunning narrative and […]

Mirage Review: Readers Will Love This Moroccan-Inspired Fantasy Set in Space!

Mirage: something that appears real or possible but is not in fact so. The title of MIRAGE may suggest an optical illusion of sorts, but the story in this book felt so real and touching when I read it. This Moroccan-inspired fantasy brings readers across planets and kingdoms. It touches upon colonization, oppression, and the […]
