Earlier this week we celebrated the US book birthday for Uzma Jalaluddin’s debut novel, Ayesha At Last. Faiza and I had the privilege of reading this book last year and we absolutely fell in love with this Pride and Prejudice retelling with a modern Muslim twist. It has everything we love in an #ownvoices contemporary: compelling lead characters, authentic Muslim representation, and a beautiful love story. Co-blogger Faiza explains more of what she loved in her review here.
I have so much LOVE for this book that it was really hard to pick just ten of my favorite moments. I pretty much read this in one sitting and enjoyed every minute of it. To make this post a bit livelier, I decided to include Bitmoji reactions to match the scenes from Ayesha At Last.
Also, you’ve been warned.
