Hey, 24hr.YABookBlog here (~˘▾˘)~ ✨💕📚 In today’s post I’ll be sharing my TBR list for Latinx Book Bingo!
If you’ve never heard of Latinx Book Bingo, it takes place from September 15-October 15, in which you read books based off the categories on the Latinx Bingo card! It basically highlights and celebrates books from Latinx authors or that feat. Latinx characters by reading as many as you can! ❤
To start, I’m going to share 1 row of Latinx books I’m planning on reading (or currently reading) for this read-a-thon!
1.SF/F: Bruja Born by Zoraida Córdova (Brooklyn Brujas #2)
I remember reading Labyrinth Lost back in 2016 & fell in love with it! From the Latinx rep., themes of family, sisterhood, etc. they were all elements I related to so much! So, for the SF/F category I’m definitely planning to finally start book 2, Bruja Born which released back in June of this year! Really looking forward to returning to another adventure w/ MC Alex in the Brooklyn Brujas series!
2.Contemporary Romance: Analee, In Real Life by Janelle Milanes
If your new to my blog, then you probably missed when I was fangirling over Janelle Milanes’s debut, The Victoria In My Head! Its such a fantastic YA Contemporary and from Milanes’s writing voice, her characters, theme of family, & wonderfully written romances, she easily became one of my all-time favorite authors!
Analee, In Real Life is an incredible YA Contemporary! Milanes’s books in general always leave me feeling so happy & remind me why I love YA Contemporary so much! I’m adoring it & you can also expect my full ARC review of it tomorrow on release day!
If you need more convincing to check out this book here’s what you can expect:
⁎ Online RPGs
⁎ Complex exploration of family/family dynamics
⁎ Diverse + incredible cast of characters
3.Magical Realism: Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore
Anna-Marie McLemore is another one of my all-time favorite authors!! Her magical realism novels are just so beautifully written and contain such impactful stories that capture my heart each time! I’m really looking forward to reading my ARC of her upcoming release: Blanca y Roja!
Blanca & Roja is a queer Swan Lake retelling that I am so excited to read! I look forward to another one of McLemore’s lyrical and captivating stories!
4.Poetry: The Carrying by Ada Limón
After looking through Latinx Book Bingo rec. lists, I realized I recognized one of the poets, Ada Limón! I just checked out The Carrying from my library & from what I read of the summary it looks like the poems will explore youth, acceptance, love, & so much more! I’m really looking forward to reading Limón’s collection and I haven’t read too many poetry collections from Latinx authors, so I’m very happy to not only get introduced to a new book, but author too!
