Con Sabor Reading Challenge 2020 |As in the Latinx style, I am super–but fashionably–late

Greetings readers!

My papi always says that one never-ever arrives to an event at the designated time. Being 30 mins to an hour late is the fashion for my father and frankly I have channeled that energy in writing this post (seeing as I’m 4 months late to the party).

Nevertheless, I am so very, very pleased to be coming to you with this post today! I don’t generally tend to join many reading challenges because we all know I suck at meeting goals that I put for myself  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ but when I found out that there was a new challenge going around prompting people to read Latinx authors…well OBVIOUSLY I HAD TO PARTAKE! And I don’t know how many Canadian-Latinx bloggers are out there joining in…but I’m happy to be a member from el norte-norte 😉

The lovely bloggers Dani @ metamorphoreader, Astrid @ Book Love Book Reviews, Natalia @ Books.Build.Life, and Nox @ Nox the Reader created the challenge and are basically motivating people to pick up as many books by Latinx authors as they can within the year 2020!

You can start any time during the year and if you want to participate you can sign up here!
