20+ Books To Read During AND After Latinx Heritage Month

Latinx Heritage Month kicks off today! I’m so excited to share a month’s worth of content with you all. I will have guest posts, author Q&As, bibliography spotlights, reviews, and giveaways! Don’t be alarmed, I will not be posting something new every day. My goal is to provide 3 posts per week, so I encourage you to stop by weekly to stay caught up.

I am grateful to the bloggers and the authors who collaborated with me to make this happen. With your help, my celebration of Latinx voices and stories has been amplified exponentially.

The Ultimate Diverse Reading List: Over 300 Book Recommendations!

I created the Diverse Books Tag to promote as many diverse books as possible in the book blogging community. Making a list may seem like a minor and insignificant thing, but it really does matter. If one reader discovered a book that she would otherwise not have seen anywhere else, then these diverse reading lists were worth it. If even one book blogger who participated examined her reading history and acknowledge that it lacked diversity, then these lists definitely mattered.

Some people were able to write extensive and very impressive lists of the books they have read. Others relied on finding books that they wanted to read to create their lists. Both strategies are perfectly valid. What matters is that we continue to read the stories of marginalized people and that we remind one another that reading these stories is important. It’s also personally rewarding, intellectually fulfilling, and fun!
