WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with main F/F pairings PT. 2

f-f pairings

Hello friends!

A year and a half ago, I posted a list on here with some 30+ books with main f/f pairings (linked at the end of the post). And in the time since then, I found myself with so so many books that fall under that category to recommend and debated whether to update the old list or just make an new one so I just settled on making a new one 1/ for easy access and 2/ because a post with almost a 100 books can be pretty tedious because YES, this list of sapphic books I have today is 50 BOOKS LONG. And there are so many more out there that I haven’t included or don’t even know of, and the number of f/f reads out there just waiting for me to discover and/or read them just makes my heart happy. Without further ado, here are the books.

I will try to include content warnings for as many of them. The ones that I couldn’t find content warnings for will have a (*) in front of their titles.

#DiverseBookBloggersDiscuss: Jewish Book Recommendations


For the first seventeen years of my life, the only Jewish rep in books I ever saw were Holocaust books. While I do appreciate the value of such books and I do think it’s an important subject that needs to be written about, it got really frustrating to see the same narrative over and over again. As I am half-Jewish and identify as a cultural Jew,  it’s frustrating to see such a complex identity be reduced to simple terms.

When I finally found books that featured Jewish rep and weren’t Holocaust fiction, it was like a breath of fresh air. I still haven’t read that many but with everyone I read, I feel a catharsis that I didn’t even know I needed. So without further ado, here are some books with Jewish rep that I loved and books with Jewish rep that I can’t wait to read. Continue reading

A love letter to Quiet YA + 12 Quiet Books I adore

Quiet YA.png

Hello friends!

A couple weeks ago, I had a short conversation with a mutual on Twitter about Quiet YA, which only reminded me of how much I love the books that fall under that umbrella and how many of my favourite happen to fall underneath it so I started wondering, why do I love Quiet YA so much? But first and foremost, what is Quiet YA?

Zodiac Signs Book Recommendations

Zodiac signs book recs

Hello friends!

As I was thinking lately about some kind of fun post to do on the blog, my very not brilliant brain came to up with this very not creative idea WHICH IS, drum roll please, book recommendations based on the twelve zodiac signs. Now, as I’ve gotten a bit more into astrology the past few months, I know that there’s a bit more depth to all of this and the signs, their traits and their influence are more complex than just your sun sign (the one based on your day of birth, that basically everyone knows) but for the sake of keeping this post light and simple I’m going to base these recommendations on the signs’ most known attributes.

#DiverseBookBloggersDiscuss: Ruby’s Fantasy Book Recommendations


Hi there, my name is Ruby and I’m a teen book-blogger, I like to sit in my room all day and, well, read. Oh, and watch endless amounts movies and tv shows. I tend to bury and invest myself in stories, therefore I am usually not here on earth with the real humans… hahah I’m not kidding. Anyways, I wanted to basically give you a list of some fantasy books I love and hope to help a friend out who wants to venture into the genre. Fantasy is literally the best because you can hide away from the real world which is s-c-a-r-y so I hope you find this useful. Continue reading

Word Wonders’ TBR Expansion: Books with East and South East Asian Main Characters

East and SE Asian.png

Hello friends!

I’m back again with a book list post that takes a WHOLE DAY (literally) to make but hey! No regrets, even though I hate making these, I love making them. Forgive me if this doesn’t make sense, it’s well past two am as I’m typing this and I might or might not be delirious with fatigue, but shhhh. ANYWAY. As I was working on my #YARC2019 TBR last month, I realized that although I have lists that include South and West Asian books, I still hadn’t done one with books that have East or South East Asian main characters, but FRET NOT, I’m here to remedy that today. And so far, this is the list I’ve compiled that has the most books with 70+ items.

Let’s get you started on Audiobooks ft. Recommendations



Hello friends!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you know that I was fervently against audiobooks, not for everyone mind you, I just could not get into them and confidently said that they weren’t for me. But earlier this year, in March, I had started a new rotation with a long ass drive to and from the hospital I was assigned to, and I had to kill time so I decided to give them another try. It took one audiobook, the right one, to have me hooked, and now I can’t stop. Continue reading

Word Wonder’s TBR Expansion: Books with Transgender and/or Non-binary Main Characters


Trans & enby MCs.png


Hello friends!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve added to my recommendations series (since August to be precise) but we all know I was in a slump and when I got out of it I wanted to take things easy and since these posts take A LOT of time and Energy to put together and I really didn’t feel up to writing one at all. Up until a couple weeks ago so good news, WE’RE BACK FOLKS! I’m not going to be making them monthly anymore, these post will happen maybe once every three months or so because of the aforementioned reasons. I’ll stop rambling now and get on with a list of books with non-binary and/or transgender main characters. Continue reading

TAG #43: Blogging Buddies + Books Tag

Bloggers + Books

Hello friends!

One of my favourite things about being a blogger is having blogger friends to share my love for books with, and that continuously produce quality bookish (and non-bookish) content for us to read and enjoy. So of course I want to share my love for them, which I did by sharing some of my favourite bloggers BUT. When I saw the Blogging Buddies + Books Tag on Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books‘ blog, I knew I HAD to do it. So thank you for putting it on my radar and kinda, sorta, tagging me haha.

How Books helped me acknowledge my trauma

Books and trauma.png

Hello friends,

In today’s programming is another episode of “Fadwa overshares”. I would say I’m sorry but uuuuhhh… I really am not. I love pouring my heart into the virtual pages of my blog because I recently (as in the last year) found out that it’s extremely cathartic for me to just put it all into words without necessarily talking to anyone in particular. But also, in the hopes that someone who needs these words reads them and feels less alone. So I’ll continue doing what I do, and I hope you all get something out of it.
