Hello, I hope you’re all taking care of yourselves and each other. Connecting with people these days can be rough, but we’re thankful to technology being as advanced as it is these days to be able to stay in touch with those we love. As a way to send positive vibes and to unite under one front, earlier this year, I’d contacted some Latinx bookish content creators (book bloggers, bookstagrammers, booktubers) to share the books they most wished everyone would read. Since we’re kind of all either self-isolating or social distancing, a lot of people are turning to books as a means to cope with the external pressures that come as side-effects of a global pandemic. I thought it would make sense to publish this now so you don’t feel alone, and maybe help guide your reading experience during these times. (All book covers are affiliate links to Indiebound, as we should do our best to support local indie bookstores and creatives; the titles after each bookish content creator’s info link to Goodreads.)
