About this deal

And I love all the cameos too, which didn't feel like random inserts but actually helped the characters grow! anyways head empty just “I just wanted to look at the same sky as zayneb for more than a vacation, a break, a pause in our lives. The characters are so real and flawed and the spiritual journey they go on to discover themselves and their paths as separate people within their relationship was so incredible. But as they travel with the group of people and meet Sarina who happens to be someone Adam was interested in before Zayneb which makes things difficult. Although being stuck in the hospital with my kid for 10 hours is never an ideal reading spot, it did give me uninterrupted time to get through this long-awaited sequel of Love from A to Z!

I have waited my entire life for a Muslim couple like this that breaks barriers and I will be damned if I let anyone take that from me.There was also a lot of pettiness and and insecurities that I feel were conflict-driven more than character-driven--issues that were put there for the sake of the conflict, not something that made complete sense to the characters. Love From Mecca to Medina follows Adam and Zayneb as they struggle through the trials and tribulations that come with a new, and long-distance, marriage. On the trip of a lifetime, Adam and Zayneb must find their way back to each other in this surprising and romantic sequel to the "bighearted, wildly charming" (Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author) Love from A to Z that's a "contemplative exploration of faith, love, and the human condition" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). As one wedge after another drives them apart while they make their way through rites in the holy city, Adam and Zayneb start to was their meeting just an oddity after all?

She just had a very negative attitude the entire time… she should have just stayed home or gone to the Blossom vacation house on her own. For years ever since I was eight until I was twenty-one, I used to attend the Islamic version of a Sunday school where I memorized twenty juz’a of the Quran and listened to lectures about Islam. Its not often that we find the topic of umrah to be talked about, especially in YA Books, but thats what makes SK Ali's books special. I was a little concerned about how the romance would work out in Mecca and Medina (and indeed, how the romance would work out considering they'd already be married in this book, so what would the conflict be?The descriptions were so beautiful and detailed that I could both picture the Kabah and the Haram and its surroundings as well as feel the emotions the characters were feeling. i'll forever, and forever, love this book for that, if for nothing else: that it reconnected me to my faith in so many, seemingly mundane ways. I expected their omra as a newly married couple would bring them closer and they would be more aligned in their hearts. Its not often that POC authors, that is Muslim to be highlighted and I'm thankful that more POC Muslim Authors books are brought forward in the limelight. If you want a book that explores characters, the challenges of their relationship, and personal growth, this sequel is for you.

It came from Mecca with a capital M , the place in the Middle East where people have been gathering for thousands of years to visit the first site of worship in the world still standing (according to Muslim people).Why in the world would Adam/Zayneb launch into a fully detailed discussion about their past crushes while THEY WERE ON THEIR HONEYMOON? She knew he’d told her not to worry, that he was taking his medication, that his multiple sclerosis was under management, but Hanna was never satisfied until she saw for herself.
