#TLT #ThreeListThursday
Late to the party on this, because I couldn't figure out where everyone was getting the lists from. 😁 I got 77%.

My 3 favorite movies from the 90s:
📽 Jumanji
📽 Mrs. Doubtfire
📽 Jurassic Park

And honorable mentions go to the following because I always stop and watch them when I'm changing channels and they're on tv:
🎬 Home Alone
🎬 Pretty Woman

@dabbe

dabbe I always stop for PRETTY WOMAN, too! Thanks for playing and sharing. 🤩🤩🤩 9h

Ayesha at Last | Uzma Jalaluddin
post image
Pickpick

Ayesha's cousin Hafsa doesn't want to help with the planning of the Muslim conference and asks Ayesha to go in her place just this once... but Ayesha then has to maintain the facade to keep her auntie and uncle from knowing that Hafsa isn't keeping up with her responsibilities. This leads to mistaken identities, friendships based on a lie, and feelings getting hurt.

Murder Is a Must | Marty Wingate

Pickpick

This one was between a so-so and a pick. At the First Edition Library, Hayley is the curator of Lady Fowling's collection of mysteries. On a quest to find the missing copy of Murder Must Advertise, that was signed by several Golden Age of Mystery writers, Hayley finds herself involved in trying to solve a murder instead.

Hana refuses to let a new halal restaurant in the neighborhood take business away from her mother's restaurant. She's also busy trying to get her own show at the radio station where she interns. When there's a hate motivated attack on her neighborhood, she realizes she must work with and accept help from someone she thought was her enemy.

Mehso-so

My 2nd May #SeasonalCozies pick was just ok, but at least I finished reading it. I'm not even sure what I didn't like about it, but it didn't seem to be as well thought out as other cozy mysteries I've read. I understand that there needed to be several characters in order for there to be confusion over who committed the crime, but I feel like some of them were just hastily added to the story.

Much Ado About Nada | Uzma Jalaluddin

I loved this book! Nada wants to forge her own way and launch the app she's been working on, Ask Apa, while also staying true to her family's Muslim traditions and expectations. When her friend Haleema takes her to a Muslim conference in the hopes of finding someone for Nada who could be a suitable husband, Nada runs into Baz, who she has a long history with.

Three Holidays and a Wedding | Marissa Stapley, Uzma Jalaluddin
post image
Pickpick

I loved this book! Maryam and her family are traveling to Toronto for her sister's wedding, and Anna is traveling to Toronto to meet her boyfriend's family and spend Christmas with them. They're on the same flight, and a blizzard causes them to have to land in Snow Falls, instead. Stuck for who knows how long before flights can get out again, Maryam and Anna reevaluate what's really important to them.
