Creating this list

This list has been growing and changing for over half a year. I just love seeing more and more Latinx stories and authors. One of my recent goals is to read more Latinx books and I’ve been doing pretty well so far! It’s been a great experience reading so many different stories. This list was created to share Latinx titles with others looking for more books on this topic.

In my list, I am going to include the cover, title info, link to Goodreads, and link to my review (if there is one). Again, this is not an exhaustive list of what’s out there. Just what I have in my own collection of books. 🙂
