Hi everyone! Today I have an exciting announcement to make… the Latinx Book Bingo is officially coming back in 2020! This is the third year in a row that Paola, Allie, and I are hosting this readathon and this year we have some cool things planned for you all.
The Latinx book bingo will take place from September 15 to October 15, which is Hispanic Heritage Month (or how we are choosing to call it: Latinx Heritage Month). The goal of the readathon is to highlight books written by Latinx authors.
The aim of the bingo is to read as many Latinx books as you can, guided by the prompts on the bingo board. You can also try to get a bingo (read all prompts on a single line or row — you can read horizontally, vertically, and diagonally), but it’s not necessary, we just hope you read some Latinx reads during this month.
We always want to promote intersectional stories, so while there’s one square that says intersectional MC – which prompts you to read a book where the main character is Latinx AND is part of the LGBTQIA community or has a mental illness or is neurodivergent or disabled- we hope you try to read as many intersectional stories as you can throughout the readathon.
Our group book will be announced later this week on Twitter and Instagram. This year like in 2019, we are reading a group book as part of a readalong organized by the hosts of the Latinx Book Club (which I’m part of as well), the Latinxathon, the Con Sabor Reading Challenge and us, the host of the Latinx Book Bingo. We are using #LatinxLitTakeover to keep track of everyone reading with us!
If you want up to date information or recommendations, follow @LatinxBookBingo on Twitter or @LatinxBookBingo on Instagram. You can use the #LatinxBookBingo hashtag for all your related tweets and posts and we will retweeting and reposting on our platforms.
I will be posting a tbr and a recommendation list in the next couple of weeks in case you need help setting up your tbr. Also, my twitter and Instagram dms are always open if you need recs!
I hope you can join us! If you have any questions, please let them in the comments!
