Hello guys !
Another month, another post full of awesome and awesome looking recommendations. In case you didn’t know, it’s Hispanic Heritage month and since I already do these monthly posts and was eventually going to get to Latinx rep, I thought this would be the perfect time to do a list of books with Latinx Main Characters. Most of them are #ownvoices, and I’d suggest supporting Latinx authors as best as you can this month, okay? ❤
