Talk Chisme to Me, Part I: The TBR

Happy Latinx Heritage Month! I’m so excited to celebrate Latinx voices all month long. I’ve rechristened my Latinx Heritage Month series, it is now called Talk Chisme to Me. With the exception of one post, this series will go up every Sunday during Latinx Heritage Month. I will be participating in Latinx Book Bingo, Latinx-a-thon, and also taking part in the Latinx Book Club’s readalong. I am going to do my best to get all these reads done, but it’s pretty ambitious. Here is a look at my TBR and remember that you are welcome to join all these whether you are Latinx or not. Titles linked to Goodreads.

I am also hosting a Twitter giveaway throughout the month. I will be tweeting out the giveaway sometime today, so be sure to check out my pinned tweet.

Latinx Book Bingo (Sept. 15-Oct. 15) – Find them on Twitter @Latinxbookbingo

I will probably be sharing my progress with the Latinx Book Bingo on Twitter rather than my blog since I have a ton of stuff already planned. Here is my TBR for said readathon which will be overlapping with Latinx-a-thon. The object of these readalongs is to pick up as many books by Latinx authors during Latinx Heritage Month.

  1. Any book by a Latinx authorThey Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
  2. Intersectional MCWhen Reason Breaks by Cindy L. Rodriguez
  3. Afro-Latinx MCWith the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
  4. Out of Your Comfort ZoneStripped by Zoey Castile
  5. On Cover RepThe Resolutions by Mia Garcia
  6. New to You AuthorDear Haiti, Love Alaine by Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite
  7. Fat RepAnalee in Real Life by Janelle Milanes
  8. Backlist TitleAvenged by Amy Tintera
  9. Non-Traditional Formatlove, and you by Gretchen Gomez
  10. Recommended by a Latinx ReaderJuliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera (recommended by my fellow Latinx Book Club cohost Sofia @ Bookish Wanderess)
  11. Group BookThe Grief Keeper by Alexandra Villasante
  12. Non-FictionPhotographic : The life of Graciela Iturbide by Isabel Quintero

Latinx-a-thon (Sept. 15-24) – Find them on Twitter @Latinxathon

This readathon only takes place over a ten-day period, so I’m not sure how many of these I will be able to get through, but even if I don’t finish them during the allotted time, I might still pick them up for Latinx Book Bingo.

Prompt #1 – VOICES (Indigenous or Afro-Latinx author)

Prompt #2 – LATINIDAD (Intersectional author – gender, sexuality, ability, etc.)

Prompt #3 – ROOTS (Translated book or featuring multiple languages)

Prompt #4 – HERITAGE (Non-Spanish speaking country of origin/heritage)

Prompt #5 – GROUP BOOK 

Prompt #6 – BONUS (read a book from an author that doesn’t share your heritage)

Latinx Book Club – Find us on Twitter @LatinxBookClub

If you didn’t notice, Latinx Book Bingo, Latinx-a-thon, and Latinx Book Club are all reading the same book for Latinx Heritage Month. We thought it would be fun to join forces and are calling our collective efforts #LatinxLitTakeover. Be sure to check out the hashtag on Twitter for more info.

Latinx Heritage Month Book Club PickThe Grief Keeper by Alexandra Villasante

**There is also an Afro-Latinx readalong being hosted over on YouTube. Check out Jesse @ Bowties and Books video here for more info.**

All together there are fourteen different books on my TBR and I haven’t gotten through so many books in a month in a long while, but I’m going to do my best. Wish me luck!

Will you be participating in Latinx Book Bingo or Latinx-a-Thon? What about joining the Latinx Book Club or the Afro-Latinx readalong? Leave me a link to your TBR and let’s discuss in the comments!

  1. I hope you love They Both Die At The End! Adam Silvera is one of my favorite authors! I’ll be participating in Latinxathon but I’m not sure how far I’ll get because I’m perfecting my college apps in the coming weeks. Good luck with your TBR! It looks like a great lineup

  2. Awwwwww, yis! Thank you for including fat representation in your bingo. My heart soars. What’s strange is the Fat Angie books are by a Mexican American lesbian, but I don’t think Angie is Hispanic herself. I wonder why the author chose that…..and why I’ve never thought about it. Now I feel like a lazy reader, though honesty I was probably more focused on the fat rep. I hadn’t heard of Analee, In Real Life, so thank you for the recommendation.

  4. Omg love the title of this series! I’m definitely planning on reading Latinx books by Latinx authors, but I’m not sure if I’m participating in bingo because I don’t know how many of the books I have will fit the challenges!

  5. I wish I was better prepared for all these awesome months. A lot of things are a mess right now though so I find it hard to focus on things so I won’t be participating. BUT I hope you will love all the books you are reading ❤
