    This book is long but I can assure it is a truly great book. One of the best I have ever read. I would advise you to read this first.

    Omg, how could I forget this lovely book named "Reclaim Your Heart" by Yasmin Mogahed!
    [​IMG]


    "This book was written to awaken the heart and provide a new perspective on love, loss, happiness, and pain. Providing a manual of sorts, Reclaim Your Heart will teach readers how to live in this life without allowing life to own you. It is a manual of how to protect your most prized possession: the heart." - Goodreads.

    I recommend it to everyone, it really changed my outlook on certain things in life. The author uses Quran verses throughout the whole book in a wonderful manner.

    The Two Hearts of Kwasi Boachi.

    [​IMG]

    "The first ten years of my life I was not black.” Thus begins this startlingly eloquent and beautiful tale based on the true story of Kwasi Boachi, a 19th- century African prince who was sent with his cousin, Kwame, to be raised in Holland as a guest of the royal family. Narrated by Kwasi himself, the story movingly portrays the perplexing dichotomy of the cousins' situation: black men of royal ancestry, they are subject to insidious bigotry even as they enjoy status among Europe’s highest echelons."

    Based on a true story.
