Review Policy

MARs is currently accepting book review requests from Muslim authors and publishers.

Muslim Authored Reads is a personal book review blog written and edited by me. For questions about the Mars blog, please contact us at marsbookreviews@gmail.com

Most of the books reviewed on Muslim Authored Reads are either owned by me or checked out from the local library. However, I do often receive review request from authors and publishers. Here at the MARs, I do not accept any form of advertising, sponsorship, or paid insertions.  I do not receive compensation in any way for my reviews. However, I do keep the books I receive from authors and publishers and often offer them up in book giveaways, to my local library or person in need. I write book reviews for my own purpose. My reviews reflect my own opinions, personal background, occupation, religion, and experience.

Books reviewed on this site are authored by Muslim writers. Books may or may not be Islamic fiction but they consist of Muslim lead and secondary characters, touch on religious, cultural, family, or social matters in the Muslim community.

 If you are an author or publisher, and would like to request a book review or set up an author interview, please contact me at marsbookreviews@gmail.com

Book Blog Tour: The Islamic, Adult Coloring Book by Theresa Corbin

About the Book: 
The second edition of The Islamic, Adult Coloring Book, published by Djarabi Kitabs Publishing, features sharper designs by Naafi Nut Rohma compiled and written by Theresa Corbin. The pages of The Islamic, Adult Coloring Book include detailed mosque architecture, calligraphy, tessellation, hadith (prophetic traditions), dua (supplication), Quranic verses, and quotes for Muslims to reflect on, to take time out of their rushed and hectic lives to recenter, refocus, and let their minds recharge, de-stress, and cultivate sabr (patience). Also, each coloring page has a corresponding descriptive page for the non-Muslim colorer who wants to learn a bit about Islam free from myth or judgment all while relaxing. In this way, The Islamic, Adult Coloring Book can be a great dawah tool.
