With it being hispanic heritage month I thought I’d share some hispanic books on my TBR list that I will be reading this semester – I say this because I am determined to make some time to read because I haven’t been reading of late.
This has been on my TBR for over a year now – I know, I know, I’m ashamed too. And to make it even more embarrassing, I already have the book. It’s just been collecting dust on my shelf.
But a little bit about the book: it’s a mix of horror and historical fiction with a splash of gothic elements (obviously). It follows the protagonist, Noemí, as she’s thrown into a new world with little knowledge of what she will find… Gosh, the suspense is killing me and I haven’t even read it yet!
This book hasn’t been on my TBR for quite as long – only a few months. I stumbled across it when looking for a book that would satisfy a history book report. From the reviews and the premise, I was hooked. This nonfiction explanation of the migration across the Mexican American border is just the educational book to fill my nonfiction reading desire. The only problem is I need to buy the book so amazon here I come!
A memoir is always a must; they are one of my favorite genres. I am always pulled into the story, forgetting it’s real until the end. This book is a memoir about Marcelo Hernández Castillo’s experience growing up as an undocumented immigrant in the U.S.
This was a new add. (I know, I know, adding books to my TBR when I haven’t read the ones I already own). But vampires? The title knew how to hook me. Vampires of El Norte puts a supernatural spin on a historical fiction tale. This book is based in the 1840s around the Mexico – Texas border.
Sapphic romance? I am sold. Add in fantasy? This book is speaking my language.
The Sun and the Void is a blend of fantasy, history, folklore, and romance. The story takes place in South America and will follow two women’s quest. Sidenote: I am so hype to read this book.
