About Me

About Me:

Hello! My name is Alicia (“uh-lee-sya” – listen to this video if you’re still unsure) and I am a Latinx book blogger who loves talking books. I’m passionate about promoting diverse reads and particularly those written by Latinx authors. This blog focuses mainly on YA, but I occasionally pick up Adult and Middle Grade novels as well. A Kernel of Nonsense was created as a general blog first, but quickly evolved into a book blog (of course). You can follow me on several different platforms (see sidebar). I am also a cohost for the Latinx Book Club, a Twitter-based club dedicated to reading books by Latinx authors. You can find our website here. I’m fairly friendly; if you talk to me, I’ll talk to you.

  1. I am putting together a directory of active book blogs. If you don’t want to be included, please let me know and I will take you off. On the other hand, if you would like to add any information about your blog, I’d be glad to add it, such as a button, genres, or review request availability. Here’s the link to the page: http://booksthathook.com/directory/


  2. Hi Alicia! I am planning to post my Feature with Followers meme on Sunday (February 12th, 2017 PST) and I was wondering if you were interested and have the time to be one of my Featured Followers for February! I thought what better way to comment on your blog than to just share you and your blog generally through my FWF post! (: If you are interested, please respond to this comment ASAP or email me at jbelkbooks[at]gmail.com. If you think that it would be more efficient for us to chat through some form of social media instead of email, definitely let me know! It will not take much time β€” I just plan on asking a few questions and obtaining some more insight on you & your overall blog.

    If you aren’t too aware of this post, I would recommend checking it out here:

    Thanks so much & I look forward to hearing back from you! (:

    P.S. I know it’s a little early, but some people have busy schedules so I like to contact you guys as soon as possible so you have time to chat with me…
