Hi my loves✨ Happy Thursday! • I want to start this post off with a HUGE thank you to @penguinteen for sending me a finished copy of Sanctuary by @paolamendoza and @abbysher I can’t wait to read and review it! This beauty comes out September 1st, so keep an eye out for it! • Here’s the synopsis: Co-founder of the Women’s March makes her YA debut in a near future dystopian where a young girl and her brother must escape a xenophobic government to find sanctuary. It’s 2032, and in this near-future America, all citizens are chipped and everyone is tracked–from buses to grocery stores. It’s almost impossible to survive as an undocumented immigrant, but that’s exactly what sixteen-year-old Vali is doing. She and her family have carved out a stable, happy life in small-town Vermont, but when Vali’s mother’s counterfeit chip starts malfunctioning and the Deportation Forces raid their town, they are forced to flee. Now on the run, Vali and her family are desperately trying to make it to her tía Luna’s in California, a sanctuary state that is currently being walled off from the rest of the country. But when Vali’s mother is detained before their journey even really begins, Vali must carry on with her younger brother across the country to make it to safety before it’s too late. Gripping and urgent, co-authors Paola Mendoza and Abby Sher have crafted a narrative that is as haunting as it is hopeful in envisioning a future where everyone can find sanctuary. . . . . #thebookieclub #library #bookish #books #booksandcoffee #reviwer #blog #bookstagram #booksbooks #bookshelf #yabooks #booknerd #fantasy #recs #blogger #bibliophile #novels #ya #adult #readersofinstagram #bookworm #bookdragon #sanctuary #paolamendoza #abbysher #latinxlit #readlatinx #latinxauthors #penguinteen

An open letter to Own Voice Book Reviewers: we are more important than we are given credit for.✨ We come from a wide range of backgrounds; from race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, disability, mental health, and a lot of times, these backgrounds intersect. We have SO much to offer this community and in forming and changing the way our stories are told and portrayed. If you’ve ever felt unheard, unseen, or unappreciated in this community, know that your voice matters so much more than you think. More than the community has led you to think. ✨ Keep speaking your truth, even if other voices drown you out. Keep fighting against narratives that perpetuate stereotypes and demonize underrepresented groups. Keep critiquing lazy representation and no representation at all. Keep speaking out against the big names that thoughtlessly exclude us, even and especially if that “wasn’t their intention”. Keep questioning the sincerity of hasty apologies and the intentions behind them. ✨ Keep hyping up the books that make you feel seen like no other book has before. Keep raising books by underrepresented voices so that they find their readership. Keep fighting for more Own Voice authors to be let in by the gatekeepers of publishing. Keep supporting the voices that encourage deeper forethought, love, and inclusion. ✨ Most importantly, keep being YOU. Don’t let anyone tell you your opinion is wrong or that you shouldn’t be so hard on others for “being human”. No one changed the world by being polite. ✨ Sincerely, an anxious Latina from Texas who will never stop listening, learning, and speaking out. . . . . . . . #ownvoices #ownvoicereviewers #bookstagram #bookcommunity #openletter #bookishcommunity #bookreviewer #shelfie #amessagetothebookcommunity

HAPPY LATINX HERITAGE MONTH!! “Hey mom do you remember when I asked for a machete because I was going to take up soap carving after reading this book?” I’ve been LOVING seeing everyone’s book stacks for the first day of #LatinxHeritageMonth and have already bought a few of their recommendations! (not sorry) I figured what better way to start out #LatinxHeritageMonth than by starting at the beginning, with my favorite book(s) when I was a kid! Esperanza Rising & Becoming Naomi León by Pam Muñoz Ryan! These were the first two books I read where I truly saw myself and my familia in the characters. Though I couldn’t relate to all of the themes and obstacles, elementary school Yanitza NEEDED to see that representation. These books left a lasting impression and jump started my love of reading, specifically reading Latinx books. I did in fact ask my parents for a machete so I could become a badass soap carver and go to Oaxaca like Naomi, BUT instead I was given a plastic butter knife! ‍♀️ My soap carving career lasted one summer and my greatest piece of art was a heart lol I’ve made a last minute goal to showcase a different Latinx book every single day!! Maybe at the end of the month I’ll share a final stack with my favorites and new additions? Q: What was your favorite book as a kid? #latinxheritagemonth #wellreadmujer #bookstagram #latinxbooks #diversereads #latinxlit #2020isbooked

#bibliomaniacsxo⁠ ⁠ Day 9⁠ ⁠ Favorite Standalone or Scent from the Reading Room ⁠ ⁠ There are so many standalone books that I really enjoy but this is one of the more recent ones that I liked. ⁠ ⁠ Book Review⁠ ⁠ I really enjoy how Pulga, Pequena, and Chico are keeping secrets from each other and their family. What I liked about their secrets is that the same person is at the root of these secrets and all of their problems. Something else that I like about this book is the pacing and how long these days seem. I think that as you read you get a sense of how long this time feels for the characters as they live these things.⁠ ⁠ I think that it is important that this book shows the reality of immigration and the many challenges that come with it. It was important to see three different scenarios as to what can happen throughout that journey and they included the addition of Pequena being female and what that meant for her. I don’t want to spoil the ending but I felt that so much of that is impactful and important to think about when we hear stories of immigration. I thought it was important that it also relayed the reasons why people were fleeing their countries and what kept them moving forward.⁠ ⁠ I also like how you can feel their pain through each moment in this section of the book. I thought it was important that each minute seemed to drag on just as their days were going on forever. ⁠ ⁠ #QOTD What are some stand-alone that you have enjoyed recently? ⁠ ⁠ #thisorthat #bookphotochallenge #bookish #daiwithbooks #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks #avidreader #booknerd #bookworm #booksofinstagram #books #bookstagrammer #bookishcommunity #igbooks #igreads #booksta #booksofinsta #bibliophile #instabooks #instareads #bibliophile #bookgram

Happy Monday, lovelies! Fall officially begins tomorrow and so I thought I’d throw it back to the beginning of summer with this photo! It was such a weird summer, definitely not the summer anyone asked for. I hope that these last few months of 2020 are kind to us, one thing I’m looking forward to is the cold weather! . . QOTD: What’s something you’ll miss about summer? ——————————— I think I’m gonna miss how bright and sunny it gets here during the summer, how green and healthy the greenery looks! The tree in this photo for example is already looking sad and it’s making me sad! Until we meet again, summertime! . . Hope you all have a fantastic start to your week! #summerreminiscing #endofsummer #mondaythoughts #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #clapwhenyouland #bibliophile #bookinthewild #readersofinstagram #instablog #instablogger #dailyphoto #bookedandbusy #lastdayofsummer #booklover #ireadforfun #readerslife #bookfashion #bookcommunity #bookbabe #bookadventure #womenwhoread #librosymaslibros #bookoftheday #readersgonnaread #readallthebooks #bookblogger

It feels wrong to be celebrating in these times, but it’s our 1 year anniversary. One year ago, I randomly decided to create a Booktube fan page to upload some memes I had made. The next day I woke up to find that my page had gained a couple followers and likes. I never thought I would be here today, but with the support of the Booktube community, it happened. Thank you to everyone who has liked, commented, and followed Booktube Memes. Also, I want thank the booktubers that helped me grow by sharing my memes on your platforms. All of you guys who stick around and wait for new memes, truly mean so much to me. I know im not the fastest at producing content, but I try to do something rather than nothing. I promise that Booktube Memes gets better from here and there lots of thing to look forward too. And to everyone having a hard time, I’m here for you ❤️ Thank you everyone for supporting me and Booktube memes. – Brandon, from Booktube Memes

q o t d : tell me a fun fact about you! • I saw @lexcaitreads do a meet the bookstagrammer so i thought I would do the same since I’ve gained quite a bit of new followers as well! • Hiiii I’m Margarita! I’m 30 years old, a mom and wife and have 4 cats. I’m from the PNW but sadly stationed in OK. • I went to school for billing and coding but I am a stay at home mom who is planning on homeschooling this year which is exciting and nerve wrecking all at the same time. I do own a business and make pin hoops but sadly its been at a halt this year due to the pandemic – which makes me sad bc I love creating but its just out of my control. I’m a scorpio so I may come off as hard and “rude” but I am a empath and feel lots of things bc I am passionate and deep down i am a soft marshmallow. I tend to get addicted/obessed to things (at least it aint drugs) and so i am currently obsessed with plants and Crocs I have adhd and fibromyalgia so if i dont respond to your message its bc i forgot (gotta love short term memory), it got buried with other messages or im having a flare up and can not talk. I’m pretty down to earth, I am very creative, I come from a very diverse family and I love making new friends even if they are from social media. I could say more but I’m out of time! Hope you are all wearing your mask and staying safe! Oop fun fact – I have two uterus and 2 cervix and a third nipple.

I know I’m a little late, but today is day one of Latinx Heritage Month and I wouldn’t miss it! This is a very small stack of some of my favorites – there are just too many to fit in one picture!⁣ ⁣ I would highly recommend checking out @literary.latina & @naturemamareads posts to learn why more and more people refer to this time as Latinx Heritage Month instead of the outdated “Hispanic Heritage Month”. While Latinx still isn’t the perfect term, we’ve definitely made progress.⁣ ⁣ I am SO excited to follow along with the #LatinxBookstagramTour created by @lupita.reads and co-hosted by @idleutopiareads. There are some amazing accounts that I know and love as well as new-to-me accounts that I can’t wait to meet! Make sure you follow the hashtag and show some love. And get ready to add a bunch of books to your TBR!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bookstagram #bookworm #igreads #aceofpages #booksofinstagram #bibliophile #bookish #instabook #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #igbooks #booknerd #booklover #wellreadmujer #houston #ilovereading #bookstack

✨ Wepa!✨ Kicking off Latinx Heritage Month with this flat lay of some great books that I’ve read and plan to read. If you follow #latinxheritagemonth you’ll get super recommendations of books written by Latinx authors showcasing the richness of our culture, our experiences, struggles, triumphs and amazing talent in varying genres. Are any #latinxbooks on your radar? One that I highly recommend is The Undocumented Americans. I have Furia and Cemetery Boys on order. . . . . #latinxstories #latinxbookstagram #ownvoices #bookishladiesclub #dignidadliteraria #bookwineandmetime #readlatinx #bookflatlay #bookstabuddies #latinxlit #wellreadmujer #latinxauthors #bookiehelper #diversereads #bookbuds2 #boricuapride #booksoninstagram #alwaysbereading #bookwormlife #womenwhoread #bookstoread #plantsandbooks #2020reads #bookbuddy #leeresvida #marilynjgon

Happy Tuesday bookbabes! I am so proud of my heritage and culture- I am a proud Latinx woman who grew up surrounded by strong Puerto Rican woman who taught me to never pretend to be something I am not. I am so proud of the traditions and history I was so lucky to be a part of growing up- I spent my summers in Puerto Rico with my cousins having adventures and climbing trees for fresh coconuts and mangos. I helped my grandmother every holiday make pasteles and Alcapurrias. We ate morcilla with our eggs and fried queso. We danced late into the night on Holidays to Salsa and Bachata. – I grew up lucky enough to be loved by a HUGE family and excepted for who I am and I will never pretend to be something I am not- I am a Proud Latinx American Woman. I am a proud Puerto Rican woman. What are some the traditions from your childhood that you enjoyed most? ⭐️ Beautiful Booksleeve from @rockpaperwords – there are so many new gorgeous sleeves in the shop! Be sure to check them out and use EBLINC10 to save ⭐️ Thank you so much @penguinteen for this gorgeous copy of Sanctuary by @paolamendoza and @abbysher- Summary: It’s 2032, and in this near-future America, all citizens are chipped and everyone is tracked–from buses to grocery stores.

Thank you so much @penguinteen and @paolamendoza @abbysher for this ARC of Sanctuary. I’m a couple pages in and cannot put it down. This dystopian novel will definitely hook you from the start, it’s so hard to put it down. What I find beyond mind-blowing is that even though it’s a dystopian novel and it’s set in 2032, it isn’t too far off the reality of Trumps America, if he had his way. This is a must read for all, as it also lets you in in what it’s like to be an undocumented immigrant under a xenophobic government and in general. It’s a cautionary novel that makes you think of what we can become as a country if we don’t “wake up”. Sanctuary is out today 9/1 make sure you grab your copy. I promise it’s worth it!!!! Also, I’m totally in love with this cover. ⁣ ⁣ Synopsis: ⁣ It’s 2032, and in this near-future America, all citizens are chipped and everyone is tracked–from buses to grocery stores.

This stack includes some books I’ve read and loved and some that I’m hoping to read over the next few months. I put together a blog post with more details on the ones I’ve read.

IT’S HEREEEE!!! HAPPY LATINX HERITAGE MONTH I was born in Caracas, Venezuela and moved to the US when I was barely 5 years old. I remember literally being terrified to play with my little gringa friends because I couldn’t speak English, so I would hide under my bed and pretend I wasn’t home (S/o to my Dad for forcing me to watch Barney so I could learn English. Shit worked like a charm!) But growing up in a predominantly white town, I lost a lot of culture and Latinidad along the way. I would go to Venezuela every summer growing up and could barely communicate with my aunts and uncles and cousins because my Spanish was WACK. Fast forward a few years later, and my family ends up moving to Bogotá, Colombia right before I started high school. When I say those years SAVED me and shaped me into the person I am today I am not exaggerating!! Now fast forward again to my life after graduating from UCLA and I am LATINA AF I fucking love my people okay!!!!!! We are beautiful and resilient and strong as hell!! We are dreamers and doers and thinkers and believers! I can’t wait to see what everyone has in store this month, and also can’t wait to share what’s in store for mine (spoiler alert: not that much since I’m talking the LSAT in October lmao) Since we’re all here for books or whatever swipe to see my Latinx reads on my shelf!!! This month my very humble TBR is WITH THE FIRE ON HIGH, I AM NOT YOUR PERFECT MEXICAN DAUGHTER, and ORDINARY GIRLS! What are you reading this month??

What’s the best book you have read 2020? I had the pleasure to read Cemetery Boys by @aidenschmaiden early this year. And I saw so many aspects of my culture in there. Small little details that truly reflect what being Latinx is really about. This book is absolutely incredible please please read it! Yadriel has summoned a ghost, and now he can’t get rid of him. A trans boy determined to prove his gender to his traditional Latinx family summons a ghost who refuses to leave in Aiden Thomas’s paranormal YA debut Cemetery Boys, described by Entertainment Weekly as “groundbreaking.

here’s a little of what Latinidad means to me & y’all have no idea how excited i am to learn more about what Latinidad means to y’all over the course of the next month (all year of course but this month especially). ✨ these voices have made me feel seen. these stories have made me feel heard. within these pages i’ve found el lenguaje y la comunidad that i’ve always craved. to say that this year has been a good reading year for me is an understatement. i’ve never felt so rooted in my cultural journey as i do now & i honestly have bookstagram to thank for that. everyone’s love, discourse, & recommendations have been invaluable in this lifelong process. this month i want to especially focus on digging into some deeper historical texts, as well as focusing on South & Central American authors. Latinx Heritage Month begins tomorrow as well as the Latinx Bookstagram Tour hosted by @lupita.reads & @idleutopia_reads so stay tuned to see all that they have in store! here’s to prioritizing Latinx authors always ♥️ are any of these on your tbr this month?? let me know!
