Hello, friends. Today is the last day of Latinx Heritage Month. I hope you’ve enjoyed the posts I’ve put together in celebration this year. Hopefully, I’ve brought some books to your attention that you might not have heard of. Remember that you can support Latinx authors beyond this month. Thank you for joining me ❤ Here is a little wrap-up of what I read including my most memorable reads. Covers are linked to Goodreads.

Books I read this month:
Favorite Read This Month:
I read so many amazing reads this month. I don’t think I’ve had so many five-star reads within such a short amount of time. I’m so glad I went with this particular TBR for LHM because I could not imagine it being any better than it was. That being said, if I had to pick a favorite for the month, I would have to go with How Moon Fuentez Fell in Love with the Universe by Raquel Vasquez Gilliland. I feel a certain kinship with Moon and fell in love with the writing in this book from page one. If you’ve ever read anything by Anna-Marie McLemore, I’d highly recommend this one because it filled me with a similar feeling I get from their books.
Favorite Instagram Photo:
This was difficult as I really liked all of the photos I posted on Instagram for Latinx Heritage Month, but I have a special place in my heart for middle grade, so I am going to go with this one. I absolutely adore all three of these books and would recommend all of them for fans of middle grade.
I was only able to read so many books thanks to audiobooks this year. If fact six of the ten reads I read this Latinx Hertage Month were audiobooks. Fun fact, I listened to more audiobooks this month than I have ever listened to in any given year. My favorite has to be Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam’s Punching the Air. There was something special about listening to this novel in verse as opposed to reading it. I love when narrators infuse real emotion and Ethan Herisse does an amazing job with this one.What was your favorite read during Latinx Heritage Month?
