WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with Latinx Main Characters

Latinx MCs.png

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? ❤

I will try to include content warnings for as many of them. The ones that I couldn’t find content warnings for will have a (*) in front of their titles.

  1. Great list! I can’t believe you actually compiled this amazing list with all those different genres even. That must’ve been a lot of work. I have one little silly question though. How do you actually pronounce Latinx and what does the x stand for? Never heard this word before I started book blogging, actually. Thanks 🙂

  2. Excellent list! I always feel like I shouldn’t click on these (because my TBR is so long already) but then I do and add new books of course. I’ve read a few of these, but have only reviewed The Memory of Light so far. You did a great job of including different genres and age groups in this list, and a good mix of older and newer titles too.
