Am I surprised that @sabaatahir wrote another masterpiece? Of course not. Did it it break my heart and put it all back together? Of course. Will you love it, too? Of course.
Beautiful, and so so so good.
Also: great song rec’s.
It’s #HollowFires day!!
This is a book about truth & lies, a murdered boy & a fierce girl who fights for justice. It’s a story about the insidious nature of racism & the power of human connection.
A piece of my heart is in this book. I hope you love it.
AHH I AM OFFICIALLY A MIDDLE GRADE AUTHOR! ZACHARY YING LAUNCHES INTO THE WORLD TODAY!
12-year-old me, this one's for you. Other kids may call you the weird Chinese kid obsessed with Yugioh, but one day that's gonna get you PUBLISHED in BOOKSTORES so now who's laughing?💙�TY
My parents subscribed to @TIME when I was a kid.
Now, somehow, unbelievably, I am in the magazine! Thank you so much for this lovely profile @sanya_mansoor that speaks to so much to the soul of my writing.
And why HOLLOW FIRES is a story from my heart.
OKAY, folks. @sabaatahir develops Noor’s character thru music in #AllMyRage, so I put together a Spotify Playlist of all the songs!
(I tried to find them all - I still need to hunt for some of the Pakistani artists she mentions)
Listen while you read: open.spotify.com/playlist/42fr8…

I am going to be recommending this book to everyone. I started on @librofm but had to walk to @CastletonPL to get print copy to finish. Stayed up late reading, crying, sighing, holding my breath, gripping my ❤️, asking for forgiveness, finding hope. @sabaatahir@RazorbillBooks
I don’t have the words to convey how completely thrilled I am about this. In some ways, I’ve been writing “One of Our Kind” in my head for most of my adult life. It's a psychological thriller—think The Stepford Wives (but Black) meets Get Out. twitter.com/KirkusReviews/…
One of my favorite interviews will air next week, Trust Me I Know What I'm Doing's @drabhaydandekar was a joy to talk to about being desi in America, South Asian exceptionalism and the joy of wearing crazy socks. Details below:
Lovely edges for one of my favorite books ever. The sunset color gradient turned out pretty good 🥰

I just finished reading @sabaatahir’s All My Rage. This is one of the most poignant YA novel I have read, which will affect me in days to come. Thank you for writing this gem. So much to unpack and make sense of: goodreads.com/review/show/46…
Azanta (@athakur98) is a tireless advocate for Muslim authors and authors of color--and that's not a space with a lot of advocates on BookTok, let's be real. She fearlessly promotes books she loves and I am so happy to see this small recognition of her radness. Ok, I'm done. :)
I am briefly going to embarrass Azanta by talking about how, when I read her review of ALL MY RAGE, I took my phone to my husband to show him and then he held me while I sobbed because it was the first reader review I'd read of my book and she loved it. She loved my book. twitter.com/athakur98/stat…
I absolutely, positively can not say enough good things about this book that I absolutely inhaled today. I am all mixed up inside about it; I loved it so much...I feel ALL THE FEELINGS. Please add it to your list ASAP. Thanks, @sabaatahir!
I remember being desperate to find out what happened! I was hunting all around my Auntie's house for scissors to cut the bound pages and ended up using a butter knife. I didn't know I was going to be a writer then, but I wrote "Maktub" (It is written) over and over in my journal.
Oddly enough, another one for me was the Alchemist (like Malala). I read it at 16 while visiting Pakistan. The last 20 or so pages were still bound together, so I had to tear them open with a knife to finish. twitter.com/KellyClarksonT…
THANK YOU HAYLEY! Guys she and Kevin, who is wisely not on Twitter, is the entire reason that I am on the @KellyClarksonTV! This is why loving books is so beautiful. Crazy, wonderful stuff can happen out of a sheer love of story! twitter.com/pagesofhayley/…
Omg. Omg. Probably she will run away when she realizes I spend way too much time quoting my smarter than me children and waxing ecstatic about chocolate but omg, now everyone go donate to @MalalaFund please.
I'm starting to think about updates to my #RU548 reading list for summer semester. As do this work, I sometimes make playlists of books that are swimming in my head - like All My Rage by @sabaatahir. I love this book so much. The music throughout is 🔥!music.amazon.com/user-playlists…t
if you work online all day, avoid eye strain with the 20-20-20 rule! after 20 minutes of work, look at something 20 feet away, then leave ithaca to fight in the trojan war and return 20 years later a broken man
