    Yes, I'm Hot in This is a really funny, often snarky glimpse of what it's like to be a hijabi Muslim American woman. Imagine Sarah's Scribbles but Muslim. Self-deprecating humor about everyday life and its peculiarities that also comments on people and situations around the author. The...

    This has to be every hijabi's life story in a comic. Laughed, kinda sad, but hey I was born HOT. Support Huda and buy this book! ...

    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! ...

    As much as I admire and appreciate that Huda Fahmy wrote this graphic novel, I can't rate it higher than two stars. I thought this was going to be a story, but instead it's just a collection of poorly drawn real-life scenarios that Fahmy has experienced throughout her life as a Muslim....

    Hilarious, very relatable and I loved it. This is a collection of comic strips about Huda Fahmy?s life as a Muslim American who is so visibly Muslim and her hilarious husband. She talks about her everyday life wearing a hijab, identity, marriage, the stupid stuff people say to her...

    Yes she is hot in her hijab. This book has a funny and easy way to show what life is like as a Muslim-American woman. Easy read and l learned somethings. ...

    This is a fun, quick read that I spotted when at my local public library. It fits into the trend of breakout web comics that have been published into print copies and I think this is particularly one for me to pick up for my students since it is a very digestible look at current Islamo...

    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. ...

    More a collection of comic strips than what I?d consider a graphic novel. Not the best drawn comic, but Huda?s sense of humour bounds through the pages. It?s almost more impressive when an cartoonist/author can convey what they?re trying to express with a limited ability, and H...

    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...

    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...

    This was so funny and yes, I'm going to give it a ma'sha'allah! It was everything I expected it to be and by the end, even more! Sr. Huda put a sweet and powerful touch to end the book. Can't wait to see what she does going forward. Had the pleasure of exchanging a few tweets with her ...

    *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...

    The only thing I wish was different about this book is I wish it had been longer! The stories are funny and authentic, and I love the drawing style. I really hope Huda Fahmy writes another book! ...

    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...

    I love how Huda Fahmy uses her humor and love for all things geeky to tell her story of what it?s like being a Muslim American woman. The art style isn?t necessarily something I like, but this was such an enjoyable read. ...

    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. ...

    3.5 stars, this is a humorous and insightful look at the common microagressions Muslims, in particular Muslim women who wear the hijab face in the United States. My main issue with the book is that it is not structured but rather a complied series of webcomics bound in a book. This is ...

    Follow: hjbookblog.wordpress.com Yes, I'm Hot In This by Huda Fahmy is both hilarious and heartbreaking. It portrays what it's like to wear a Hijab and visibly be a Muslim in America(or just in today's world.)The book through its illustrations, portrays the stereotyping of the relig...

    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 ...

    I've been following Huda on Instagram for a while now, and I was SO excited when I found out she was coming out with a book. It's an easy read - full of comics I've seen before but many more that I haven't - but that doesn't mean it's a shallow read. Huda is HILARIOUS, gracious, vulner...
