Reviews Yes, I'm Hot in This

  • Stephanie
    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, many of these people are not given understanding and empathy or even the chance to share their culture and religion with others. Rather, many people in America make t...

    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, relatable, and funny.I received an advance copy from the publisher via Netgalley for review consideration.

    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 where she's really from, or commenting on the exoticism of her (midwestern) accent. Yes, I'm Hot in This: The Hilarious Truth about Life in a Hijab is a collection of her webco...

    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 Muslim woman and I was honestly so intrigued to see what Huda’s perspective was. But I loved the explanations on her feelings of being an American born Muslim as well as the ...

    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 basis.I laughed, cackled, teared up and cheered all the way through, and I think my shriveled empathy capacity grew at least three sizes today.A must read!I received...

    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!

    Love this artistI’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!

    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 definitely oversimplifies the many reasons behind wearing a hijab, but she makes her point in doing so.

    *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 cartoonists, but many that I've seen are white woman writing about mental health. That's still important, but it's pretty homogenous.Fahmy thanked the author behind Introvert Do...
