Hello! No weird hashtag this time, no summaries either, but still a quality list full of incredible releases written and/or illustrated by Latinx. I’ve been recovering from wisdom teeth surgery, which meant sacrificing my free time to healing instead of doing free labor. Though this quarter’s not as long as Spring lists usually are (they usually encompass May releases as well), that just means I’ll have enough time to plan out my Summer releases list and it’ll be a monster of a post.

This post encompasses books being released by Latinx writers and/or illustrators between February 15th, 2021 and April 30th, 2021. There are about 130 books in this list, which is divided by age range (Picture Books, Middle Grade, YA, Adult) and genre (Contemporary, SFF/Speculative Fiction, etc.) and organized by release date. Each book entry has its title (which is linked to Indiebound, Goodreads, or the Publisher’s website), author and/or illustrator, and release date. A Huge thank you to Latinx in Kidlit, their 2021 releases list for kidlit was incredibly helpful. Make sure to give them a follow as well.

Disclaimer: This compilation is by no means exhaustive or comprehensive; it only contains titles I’ve been able to find through extensive research. If you know of a book I didn’t list, or have a correction to make, don’t hesitate to let me know. I also add books at my own discretion, as I have no intention of boosting sexual harassers, racists, homophobes or transphobes, but if you noticed I slipped and added a book by someone who shouldn’t be here, let me know so I can take them out of the list. This list is in no way an endorsement of the contents of each book, as I don’t have the knowledge of what is in each and every book. All (or, at least almost all) links lead to indiebound.org as I am an Indiebound affiliate. Support your local bookstore!

If you enjoyed this list or think it’s a good resource as I believe it is, please think about sharing and maybe donating some money. I don’t get compensated for any of this, this is just what I do in my free time because I love boosting Latinx voices, but it takes a lot of time and effort to compile these lists. My Paypal is paypal.me/adrianammf, Ko-Fi is ko-fi.com/boricuareads, and Venmo is @adrianammf. Check out my official website boricuareads.com for information on my services and more.
