    Huda Fahmy (she of the hilarious @yesimhotinthis), living the oft-uncomfortable life of a visible Muslim-American young woman, navigates the inanely cliched questions, the intrusive barbs, the racial undertones, sometimes downright hostility and every once in a while, unexpected bouts ...

    I gobbled up this book in two sittings, finished it in one day. Really appreciated Huda Fahmy's perspective as an American Muslim hijabi. (Her useful glossary at the end of the book taught me the slang word for a Muslim woman who wears a hijab!) Her collection of comics is informative ...

    I got to read an advance copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a great comic about modern life as a Muslim in America. This comic does a great job of pointing out the micro aggressions and outright hostilities Muslim women experience in America, ...

    I received an arc from the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review. This book is funny, touching, and in-your-face about certain things (in a great way). I enjoyed reading from Huda?s point of view, a view that is extremely underrepresented?and I enjoyed her sense of humor...

    Brilliant. (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Netgalley. Trigger warning for Islamophobia, racism, and sexism.) Cartoonist, educator, and former law student Huda Fahmy was born and raised in Michigan - but this doesn't stop strangers from asking her wher...

    So cute and funny! Love her Instagram account and this is more of the same awesome content. My kids also loved it. Please do more! ...

    A pretty awesome collection of comics that deal with the happy, sad and downright absurd particularities of the Muslim-American existence. I hope that Huda Fahmy has more books coming because I could stare at her insightful, funny, self-deprecating comics all day long. And they're not ...

    Not really a graphic novel, but a collections of vignettes from perspective of a hijab wearing wearing American. The graphics are pretty simple, and some of the observations had me laughing out loud ( 'I want to be a writer', says young Huda. 'It's pronounced doctor', replies her mothe...

    This book is eyeopening, heartbreaking, and laugh out loud funny all at once. I'm thankful to the artist for sharing her story and sorry for all of the hardship she has endured. It's amazing that she can share her story in such a humorous manner! I highly recommend this book. I rece...

    I'm a huge fan of Huda, I was so excited to read this. Well done Huda for putting yourself out there and using your art to bring the issues that visibly Muslim women face in to the spotlight. Unfortunately, I have been on the receiving end of racist comments and actions of others, I kn...

    I love Huda and have been following these comics for a while so I'm really happy they're finally out in a book! I'm not Muslim but all her stuff about microagressions always makes me scream YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSS! I get the "where are you REALLY from" and "your English is so good" ...

    I received this as an E-arc from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review! I?ve been reviewing and reading a lot of internet comic artists lately who have been taking their comics and making them into books. This one is my favorite. By far. I am not a ...

    This #ownvoices collection of comics by Huda (Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda-Huda) Fhamy is a hilarious, eye-opening and entirely relatable depiction of life as a hijabi, and the various overt and covert discriminations and micro-aggressions Muslims (particularly Muslim women) face on a daily b...

    Enjoyed this book in one sitting. Very quick light read with a lot of, ?omg that?s me? moments! Very clever and laugh out loud funny at times. ...

    This is just fantastic! Huda has an amazing sense of humor, while also being in-your-face about microaggressions (and just plain aggressions) directed towards Muslim Americans. She alternately makes you think, cry, and laugh, which is no small feat. I think this is a great quick read f...

    At times quite humorous and at times rather dejecting, Yes, I'm Hot in This: The Hilarious Truth about Life in a Hijab by Huda Fahmy is an insightful account of the various every day encounters Muslim women face as a result of the attire they wear for their religion. The truth is, ma...

    I've been following Huda on Instagram and I enjoy her comics. Generally her experience resonates with me (as a hijabi Muslim living in the US) and her childish humor is my kind of humor. Her simple art is funny and she utilizes the primitive figures in good expressive ways. As for the ...

    A funny and straightforward look at what it's like to be visibly Muslim in America. Huda talks about wearing the hijab, sometimes needing to use the dressing room to pray, and how to answer the question, "Where are you from? No...where are you *really* from?" Honest, refreshing, relata...

    *ARC was provided by Adams Media through NetGalley. I'm no stranger to Instagram cartoonists, but I actually hadn't read any of Yes, I'm Hot in This prior to the galley. I really enjoyed getting to read this genre from a Muslim American perspective - I can't speak for all cartoonist...

    This is an eye-opening look into lives of Muslims in the United States, presented with humor and honesty. Huda is open about her experiences and how she responds to them. Her frustration is understandable, and expressed respectfully. A collection of comics feels like a great format for...

    I had been following the artist on IG for a while. The comics are in a sort of chronological order in the book instead of just being random like online and so it's nice to follow in a story-type manner. Great job to Huda and her team! ...

    Love this artist I?ve enjoyed following Huda on Instagram and was very excited for her book. She has taught me a lot about a religion that I do not have a good understanding of, and it has taught me how to be more respectful of all people. Everyone should read it! ...

    I read a lot, and one of the reasons I do so is to find new and fresh perspectives that are easy to be ignorant of in my little, homogenous Iowan bubble. Fahmy drew me in with her humor but made me think seriously about the microaggressions, bigotry and outright hatred many Muslim Amer...

    Sometimes funny, always truthful. An inside look into what it's like to be a Muslim American woman living in Detroit. The art is quite bad, amounting to little more than doodles, but it's enough to get the story point across. Received a review copy fro Abrams Media and NetGalley. Al...

    Oh my, goodness! This book was really quite good! You may have seen ladies out and about in their daily lives wearing a hijab (or headscarf), but have you ever given thought as to what kind of comments and suspicions are directed their way? Ms Fahmy does point out that there is a d...

    I have never laughed with a book more. It was hilarious and even more than that, so accurate. So many situations that I thought only I experienced were in here and not just about hijab, about relationships, family, food. Just life. Definitely looking forward to more from her. ...

    Laugh out loud funny! I hesitated to include this on my shelf (on/by middle eastern women) since I feel like that would be something she might draw a panel about in this book ? since she is Michigan born.... but I feel it's relevant none-the-less. My only criticism is that Huda ...

    Whoa. Short read, big impact. Some of it's about pizza, her husband, other normal stuff, but most of it is about all the garbage visibly muslim women (and men) have to put up with. Just a teaser: Worrying about looking suspicious for LIVING YOUR LIFE, Dealing with questions like "but...
