Goodreads summary: Love in a Headscarf
Buzz: She has been dubbed the Muslim Bridget Jones.
My say: Have you ever wondered what it must be like for a modern day Muslim? Have you ever pondered or been fascinated with the process of arranged marriages? Well then you have to read this book. Love in a Headscarf is witty, charming, and often comical. It is the real life story of a British Muslim gal looking for her Mr. Right. I smiled and smiled through Shelina's journey to find love and a balance between her culture and her faith. By the end of the book, she will feel like your friend and you will be so proud of what you've learned about her faith, her choice to wear a hijab, and her views on love coming after "I do".
My star rating: 4 out of 5 stars
My favorite people and parts:
- Shelina's relationship with her mother.
- When Shelina and her gal pals get together and swap suitor horror stories.
- Her guts! Shelina challenges what "nice" girls should and should not do. This gal travels, buys a sports car, and climbs a mountain.
My final say: Shelina, I have to ask (forgive me) did you keep a grand count?
