Thanks for the free book! @Simonteen @skalibooks/@sajidahwrites and @coloredpagesblogtours.

Apologies for the delayed post – my apartment building had a flood over the weekend and it’s been pretty overwhelming. AlhA, I’m okay and my family is okay but it’s been a lot of cleaning and sorting through whatever was damaged by the flood.

I’m working on getting back to posting regularly (had to be offline to deal with the flood).

Book Information

Title: Love From Mecca to Medina

Author: S.K. Ali

Publisher: Salaam Reads

Publication Date: October 18th, 2022 

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Synopsis

Adam and Zayneb. Perfectly matched. Painfully apart. Adam is in Doha, Qatar, making a map of the hijrah, a historic migration from Mecca to Medina and worried about where his next paycheck will come from. Zayneb is in Chicago, where school and extracurricular stresses are piling on top of a terrible frenemy situation and making her miserable.

Then a marvel occurs: Adam and Zayneb get the chance to spend Thanksgiving week on the Umrah, a pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia, tracing the hijrah in real life, together. Adam’s thrilled, and Zayneb hopes for a spiritual reset—and they can’t wait to see each other.

But the trip is nothing like what they expect, from the appearance of Adam’s ex in their traveling group to the anxiety gripping Zayneb everywhere they go. And as one wedge after another drives them apart as they make their way from one holy city to another, Adam and Zayneb start to wonder: was their meeting just an oddity after all? Or can their love transcend everything else like the greatest marvels of the world?
