Ayser’s story is the perfect juxtaposition between the immigrant trying to fit into American society as well as the Muslim Arab raised in America that no longer fits into Arabic society. Essentially, Ayser is in limbo between two worlds that she doesn’t quite fit into. No matter where she sits, she’s on the wrong end of the table.
February was a great month of reading! I read and listened to quite a few novels this month, including a few ARCs. I took a dip into Fantasy, Romance, Nonfiction, and Urban Fiction. Take a look at these mini reviews and let me know what you think!
Historically, I’ve always steered away from romance novels. However, after reading 99 Percent Mine, I am a fan and Sally Thorne has won my heart.

Wow, how do I even begin this review? I have SO MANY FEELINGS about this book. It’s set in African folklore, all about that black girl magic, AND it’s a response piece to police brutality against black bodies? UGH, slay me, Tomi. And don’t even get me started on the fact that Tomi is my age (26) and out here slaying her FIRST NOVEL and already has a movie deal?! UGH, slay me AGAIN, Tomi!!!!!!!!
2018 was the year of falling back in love with reading and the books that played a key role in morphing me into the young woman (ew, adulting) that I am today.
