Currently...

Hello Poetteers,
{Fun fact: What's Up Wednesday was based at least in part off of the Currently... post that had been circulating at the time. Thanks goes to Katy Upperman and Jamie Morrow for starting this up again so we all have a way to touch base now that WUW is no longer.}


Loving...

The sound of thunderstorms. It is comforting (even though it can make you jump).

Reading...

My latest reads has been AN EMBER IN THE AHES by Sabaa Tahir, WRITTEN IN THE STARS by Aisha Saeed, and CHILDREN OF THE STONE by Sandy Tolan. A diverse list, of course. A fantasy, a contemporary, and a non-fiction. All three were amazing!

Watching...

I don't watch any TV, but if you see me in front of a screen its vlogs and book tube. 

Listening to...

The album The Path by Raef, literally. It's on as I write this! Also, City of Lights by Kareem Salama.

Thinking about...

Future projects and events.

Anticipating...

Summer break and more time to work on what I love. Also, secret things and not so secret things like the upcoming fall release of my 4th poetry collection!

Wishing...

For something to sweep me of my feet and onto something amazing.

Making me happy...

The sun and warm weather, wearing skirts, being inspired by dreams and love, writing endless amounts of poetry. 

Love, Fida

I love thunderstorms, too. The whole thing—thunder, lightening, rain, wind—is so relaxing.

And I can't wait to start AN EMBER IN THE ASHES. I've been hearing such great things!

Love this post, Fifa! I'm so glad you jumped into "Currently" this week. I read WRITTEN IN THE STARS last year and thought it was so compelling. I'm looking forward to reading her recent sophomore novel. I'm loving the sunshine and the spring weather as well. Have a wonderful week!
