Hi there! My name is Carolina, I'm a 16-year old bookworm from Puerto Rico! I'm genderfluid and my pronouns are they/he/she! I have my own blog which you can check out @ santanareads.wordpress.com!
I love reading, supporting, and boosting diverse books! My favorite genre is YA contemporary romance, but I've been branching out a bit since the end of last year, and now I also love light fantasy and sci-fi and graphic novels & comics!
You can follow me on TW @santanareads and on IG @santana_reads! I'm always open to making new friends and couldn't be more excited to meet you all :D


Destiny (myhoneyreads) (myhoneyreads) | 1 comments Hi everyone! My name is Destiny and I’m a Mexican American bookblogger. I don’t read nearly as much Latinx books as I’d like to and I’m working on reading more this year, since I really do enjoy them. My pronouns are she/her. You can find me on Twitter @myhoneytweets or IG @myhoneyreads where I love to talk about books and randomness any time of day <3

Mariana Quesada (booksbymyshelf) | 1 comments Hey everyone! Mi name is Mariana I'm from Mexico and I love to read all kinds of genres (except for horror but I'd be willing to try it) I have a youtube channel Mariana Quesada were I upload videos in Spanish always with English subtitles. You can find me as @booksbymyshelf on twitter and instagram. I want to read more latinx authors because I feel I don't show near enough support for them, so I'm excited to accomplish that here.

Kara (kara_reads_) | 2 comments Hi everyone! My name is Kara (she/her/hers) and I split time between Connecticut and Chicago. I hope it's ok that I'm not Latinx! I'm a PhD student in Modern Middle Eastern History and when I'm not writing my dissertation, I'm reading fantasy, sci-fi (YA and adult), and contemporary YA. You can find me as @hufflepuff_prof on Twitter and Instagram (I also have a blog). I read (especially fantasy) through the lens of a historian, particularly when novels tackle issues of authoritarianism, gender/sexuality, imperialism, and colonialism. I strive to read conscientiously and meaningfully. Last year I read Blanca & Roja with this club and in the wake of AD, I'm participating in the #ConSaborReadingChallenge this year to continue my goal of reading more diverse books. I'm looking forward to discussing books with all of you!

I'm a major fangirl for books by Anna-Marie McLemore and Elizabeth Acevedo, among the many others mentioned in the Meet the Hosts section!

Hi Kara! It's okay that you are not Latinx, we are excited to have people from every background reading Latinx books with us. It's great to know that you read Blanca & Roja with the book club, hopefully you enjoyed it!

I'm also participating in the #ConSaborReadingChallenge and I can't wait to talk about what books you are reading for it and discuss Latinx books with you.

BookishBoricua | 8 comments Hi guys, I'm Elizabeth. I'm Puerto Rican born and raised on the East Coast. I love books in general but really love classics, nonfiction and graphic novels/comics. I am about 200 pages into American Street. It's ok so far. I recently read Zoboi's "My Life as an Ice Cream Sandwich " and really enjoyed this. I also picked up "Pride" which I plan on reading next month. When/ where will we be chatting about our thoughts on "American Street"?

Hi Elizabeth! If you go to the home page of our group there's a board called "2020 Reading" and in it you can find a topic titled American Street where we can talk about the book!

Hello new and old friends (YAS HOLA!), it makes me so happy to see you all here!

You don't have to join us every month, so feel free to skip when it doesn't work for you. In March we're going to be reading a middle-grade fantasy, A Dash of Trouble, it's a reread for me and I really enjoyed it the first time!
