April was an extremely slow reading month, but that’s because I got caught up in Ramadan and ultimately decided to drop my reading for the holy month and focus on reconnecting with my faith and spirituality. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’m way more internally stable and I can’t wait for May to come. I have a feeling I’ll have an amazing reading month coming up.
April also saw my work featured in COVID-19 Exhibit by Ithra; the exhibition aims to shed a light on the items that were an integral part of helping get through the rougher days of the pandemic last year. Titled “Pages of Comfort“, it is a love letter from a reader to her books ❤️📚
Next week is Eid so I’ll try to post something but no promises! Happy almost Eid to my Muslim sisters and brothers ✨🎉
That’s it from me and my life, check out my top posts and the other blog posts and bloggers I mentioned below, give them love and show your support ❤️
