The Zumra Book Tag

I haven’t read We Hunt the Flame before but I’ve heard amazing things!

Star is All Booked Up created this tag and I found it on Cait’s blog.

The prompts for this tag were especially fun.

I may have to add this book to my TBR.

Zafira Bint Iskandar: An Emotionally driven character (or book)

Who I Was With Her is grief-driven.

Who I Was With Her by Nita Tyndall

Corinne loses her secret girlfriend and essentially has to stuff her feelings for the rest of the book.

Her emotions make up the bulk of the novel.

Nasir Ghameq: angsty boy A character that’s conflicted/at war with themselves

I don’t think it’s a spoiler to mention the monster living inside the protagonist of Monstress.

Monstress Volume One: Awakening by Marjorie Lu and Sana Takeda

The two don’t always get along.

Kifah Darwish: A book with lots of food in it (or another foodie character)

Before she wrote Relish, Lucy Knisley wrote French Milk.

French Milk by Lucy Knisley

Recipes abound.

I guess French milk is especially delicious.

Benyamin Haadi: A book with a “Mom” character (or a book with wisdom you didn’t seek)

In Summer Bird Blue, Rumi essentially raises her younger sister.

Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman, Author of William C. Morris Debut Award Finalist Starfish

When her sister dies, Rumi loses her sister, her best friend, and, in some ways, a daughter.

The loss drives a wedge between Rumi and her mother.

There’s a lot of emotion in this novel.

Altair Al-Badawi: A Secretive character (or a book that kept you guessing)

The two leads in The Art of Being Normal keep their transness a secret…because this was the state of trans YA lit in 2015.

The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson

This book was…something.

I didn’t (couldn’t) finish it.

Deen Ra’ad: A simp A pure cinnamon roll

Tristan from The Gilded Wolves is considered a cinnamon roll by everyone who isn’t a bird.

The Gilded Wolves by New York Times Bestselling Author Roshani Chokshi

He’s even a friend to spiders.

He also has cherubic blonde curls so you know he’s definitely a cinnamon roll and not a bird murderer.

(A birderer?)

Yasmine Ra’ad: A Character you wouldn’t want on your bad side

In the first Sookie Stackhouse novel, Bill murders Sookie’s abusive uncle.

The Anthony Award-winning novel Dead Until Dark: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Charlaine Harris

He just goes out and does it.

All casual.

And when he comes home, Sookie is like, “Aw, Bill. Come on.”

Like…I guess there’s no stopping him?

Lana bint Iskandar: A character that has to grow up too quickly : (

I have been putting off reading The Art of Breaking Things for at least two years.

The Art of Breaking Things by Laura Sibson: He's counting on her silence. She has to count on herself.

I tried to read it when I first got it and I wasn’t ready.

Protagonist Skye has survived things no one should have to face.

I want her to be okay.

I’ve had this post in drafts for MONTHS. HERE IT IS NOW.

I am struggling, clearly, and also doing my best.
