"The Muslim Bridget Jones" - a hilarious and heartwarming romantic comedy
"Fun, fresh and funny" Mhairi McFarlane, author of You Had Me At Hello
"Fans of Bridget Jones certainly won't be disappointed, since Malik achieves the perfect balance of romantic and humour" Independent
'Brilliant idea! Excellent! Muslim dating? Well, I had no idea you were allowed to date.' Then he leaned towards me and looked at me sympathetically. 'Are your parents quite disappointed?'
Unlucky in love once again after her sort-of-boyfriend/possible-marriage-partner-to-be proves a little too close to his parents, Sofia Khan is ready to renounce men for good. Or at least she was, until her boss persuades her to write a tell-all expose about the Muslim dating scene.
As her woes become her work, Sofia must lean on the support of her brilliant friends, baffled colleagues and baffling parents as she seeks stories for her book. But in amongst the marriage-crazy relatives, racist tube passengers and polygamy-inclined friends, could there be a lingering possibility that she might just be falling in love . . . ?
Sofia Khan is Not Obliged is the hilarious and fresh debut novel by Ayisha Malik.

Absolutely loved this book!
A light hearted funny book which had certain lines like "canderal and ladoos" I won't say more - having me in stitches and embarrassing myself on a train full of commuters.
I highly recommend a read, especially if you need an escape on the train ride home.
An absolutely hilarious book.. Couldn't put it down and loads of laugh-out-loud moments..
