Ramadan Readathon 2020: Once Upon a Ramadan Book Tag

Hello/Salaam everyone! Ramadan Mubarak and welcome to the 4th annual Ramadan Readathon! I love taking part in this event that boosts Muslim authors and their books. It’s been such a joy to watch this initiative grow and evolve over the last four years. Thank you Nadia for all of your hard work in organizing this event! Head over to her blog for more info about Ramadan Readathon 2020.

In 2018, I created the first Ramadan Readathon Book Tag and was thrilled to see many of you participate. This year’s Ramadan Readathon is inspired by the upcoming middle grade anthology Once Upon an Eid: Stories of Hope and Joy by 15 Muslim Voices. I was lucky enough to read an e-ARC of this book, and I loved it so much!! Each of the fifteen stories is centered around a specific theme. I thought it would be fun to turn them into book tag prompts. Or feel free to adapt the prompts to complete the Instagram photo challenge Nadia posted here.

So, I now present to you the Once Upon A Ramadan Book Tag!

The Lightbearers Book Tag

I am so excited to share a brand new book tag I created that is inspired by London Shah’s debut novel, THE LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD. I have been anticipating this book ever since it’s announcement and feel incredibly lucky that I was able to read an early copy of it.

THE LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD is a YA sci-fi set in the future when Earth is submerged under water. British-Muslim Leyla McQueen, a champion submersible racer, is on a dangerous quest to rescue her father from the clutches of a shadowy organization with extreme ideology and methods. With its immersive setting, high-stakes plot, and compelling characters, THE LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD needs to jump to the top of your TBR pile!

The prompts for the book tag are adapted from the different elements present in THE LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD. Hopefully, this will help motivate y’all to read it! The book tag can be completed/shared on all social media platforms. Be sure to use #TheLightbearers and tag @perusingya when you share on Twitter and Instagram, and link back to YA Book Corner when you post on your blog.
