It’s hard to explain to someone who isn’t wholly a bibliophile that yes, I buy books because they have beautiful covers and incredible stories and worlds and characters that I love to get lost in and even seeing their spines and titles on my shelves brings back the exact moment I read a scene that made me laugh so hard I cried or when I was so lost in another place, in someone else, that I didn’t realize it was three in the morning until I’d read the last line and it was completely worth the loss of sleep to spend every second inside the words printed on those pages nestled snugly on my bookshelf so I can return to that moment anytime I so wish.
So many of you asked that we spent all of Monday working on this - a list of Hispanic / Latino / Latina leads. (Which we would have included in the title, but it wouldn’t fit in the graphic space!) Check out these twenty Hispanic YA leads and share your favorites when reblogging! For more
fun lists and all things YA lit, visit our website, follow us here and on Twitter, and subscribe to our weekly newsletter!
More YA books with Latino / Latina leads can be found at Latinos in Kidlit, an amazing resource dedicated to reviewing and collecting YA books with Latino / Latina leads.
I’ve always loved Fantasy. The maps, particularly drew me in. I loved learning the geography of a new world, the customs of it’s people, how everything worked–it’s always fascinated me. Whether or not there’s magic in the world I’m reading about, the creation of an entirely new world has always been magical to me.
