I happy to say that Latinx Heritage Month is right around the corner and I hope you are all ready to celebrate with me! From September 15th to October 15th, I will be reading, promoting and enjoying all books Latinx! This will be the first year that I’m putting together a proper TBR and joining in on other challenges too.
And let me tell you there are a lot of challenges! But I am here to give you a list of things going down!
Latinx Book Bingo 2020
This Bingo is hosted by three amazing Latinx booklovers, Sophia, Paola and Allie! It runs all month long and has some incredible prompts to follow and enjoy! For those of you who want to participate and/or just want Latinx Book recommendations in general, Sophia @ Bookish Wanderess made this amazing list of 170 titles to read from and enjoy! Please show your support for the incredible amount of work she did to put this together!
This is my first year joining and I am very, very, very excited and maybe even a bit nervous! I want to get at least one bingo so help me God!

Latinx Heritage Month Book Fest
This is going to be a month long festival of blog posts and Instagram features and fun! I am planning accordingly! While I hope to get to do all the challenges and join in on as many discussions as I can, I am only human so forgive me if I miss one!
Nevertheless, I am super excited to be joining in! Be sure to follow me on Instagram where I will most likely be posting the most! But I am still 10/10 still going to post on here so please stop by to say hola!
That’s it for me! I’m sure there is more that is going to happen throughout the month! I hope everyone comes out to celebrate, whether you identify as Latinx or not, I encourage us all to read Latinx books as much as we can!
I know for a fact that I probably won’t finish this huge TBR, but I hope to get at least one bingo and fulfil 3 of the five prompts for Latinxathon! Who knows?! I am just so excited to be celebrating and I hope you join the fiesta!

There are so many amazing books on your tbr!! I hope you love them all and I can’t wait to read your thoughts once you finish reading them.
